Leatherman Holiday Gift Guide

The Holiday Season is upon us. If you’re looking for a gift that will keep on giving for years to come, a Leatherman is always the answer.

While your friends and family will be more than excited to get any of Leatherman’s tools in their hands, these four favorites are sure to impress your loved ones. Plus, engrave any of these options for the perfect personalized holiday gift.

Charge+ TTi

Not your average multi-tool, not your average gift. The Charge+ TTi is the perfect present for your favorite gearhead, carpenter, electrician, contractor, or anyone who truly enjoys the finer (and better) things in life. That’s why we listed it first in our holiday gift guide.

What makes the Charge+ TTi so exceptional? Simply put, it’s the cream of the crop. When it comes to striking the perfect balance between sophisticated and functional, the Charge+ TTi has got it down to an art.

Despite the fact that it’s loaded with 10 tools, it’s compact and lightweight. But make no mistake, it’s built to withstand a lot. Finicky screws, thick rope, or stubborn wood are no match for the Charge+ TTi. One of the best tool gifts for complex jobs, simple repairs, and everything in between.

Made of premium materials and backed by Leatherman’s 25 year guarantee, this ultra-practical multi-tool is one of our most popular tool gift ideas for a reason. It features strong yet lightweight titanium handles, upgraded replaceable wire cutters, and a full range of our most requested tools including:

  • Regular pliers
  • Premium replaceable wire cutters
  • Premium replaceable hard-wire cutters
  • Electrical crimper
  • S30V knife
  • Corrosion-resistant 420HC Serrated Knife

With one-hand operable and outside-accessible features that lock, a quick-release lanyard ring, and a replaceable pocket clip, it’s your favorite gear junkie’s, or professional’s, dream come true. Whether they’re on the job or pursuing their passion, they’ll think of you every time they use this tool (which will be often.)
