Tuck a small knife sharpener into your guys stocking, and he'll have every knife in the house sharpened in no time. My personal favorite is the two-stage pocket knife sharpener by Smiths. It's small enough to fit into a pocket or junk drawer, and only costs a few bucks.

That car windshield is much easier to keep clean when you have a good squeegee on hand. Give him one with a telescoping handle, and he can use it to clean the house windows, too.
