Winter Wishes - Skil iXO Vivo Power Corkscrew Review & Giveaway

Pin It

Thanks for joining us for our second annual "Winter Wishes" Gift Guide! We've put together some great gift ideas this year and have some awesome prizes to give away too! This event will run through the New Year, so make sure to check back often to see what's new! Our gift guide page has all of our gifts by category, which you can see by clicking the image above.

Some say that men are impossible to shop for. I say different because the guys on my list are usually the easiest for me to shop for. You just can't go wrong with tools, and a Skil tool will be appreciated. It's a brand that they know and trust.

Well now I found something from Skil that men and women alike will appreciate, the iXO Vivo Power Corkscrew. It has all of the same great features of the iXO Cordless Screwdriver, but also comes with a corkscrew attachment, allowing users to remove a wine bottle cork in under 10 seconds!

It's mini size makes it perfect for all of those small hard to get at places that a larger drill with a screwdriver bit couldn't reach. It comes with 5 bits, in a handy little bit holder so they don't get lost. There are little arrows that light up to show you if you're going forward or backward, as well as a flashlight on the tip so you can see what you're doing in darker areas.

Set up is a breeze; just take it out of the box, stick it on the charger and it's ready to go! This is my go to tool every time I need a screwdriver, and all of the boys' too!

The corkscrew attachment came in handy big time during my Cookie Exchange this past weekend. It made opening a bottle of wine a breeze, which is normally a task I despise.

So when you're shopping this holiday season, consider the Skil iXO Vivo Power Corkscrew for the man, woman or couple on your gift list.
