Kevin: He’s Just that Cool November 21, 2009

Filed under: Friends — Holly @ 8:39 PM

Now *that's* a party favor.

Recently, I told you about Kevin and the card I made in honor of his 50th birthday.

Now it’s time to share the lovely party favors Kevin put together for each of his guests. 

Wrapped in a reusable plastic baggie (lest departing guests encountered flood waters on their way home) were an LED flashlight, a screwdriver with multiple interchangeable heads and a pocket knife sure to get you strip searched at any airport in the country.

 

Now I ask you:  how cool is all that?!?!

Ever the considerate host, Kevin didn’t stop there–as each couple departed, he checked to make sure that husband and wife had a different style or color of each tool.  That way, there’d be no inadvertant mixing up of implements.

Kevin, that was so appreciated–I *hate* it when DH borrows my tools. . . .

 

For a close up of these fine tools (including a pocket knife unfolded to the full extent of its glory), please click on the photo.
