Open Thread: WORKZONE Multi-Tool Giftbox

This post is an open thread and contains affiliate links

If I roam around Kohl’s or similar retailers this time of year, I see that the random gift shelves have popped up again in the middle of the aisles. These shelves are stocked with all kinds of small, generic gifts and novelties. There are lotion and soap sets, puzzles, movie or television show fan-related mugs and other gear, quirky kitchen gadgets, and gag gifts such as bubble gum that looks like lumps of coal or magnets that look like cats’ back sides. You never know what might show up here.

Often, these eclectic gift aisles include simple tools or gadgets. You might find emergency auto tools or screwdriver sets, or emergency tire inflators. There’s almost always some type of Swiss Army knife style of multitool: a pocketknife that has all kinds of other functions. They seem to be popular gifts, small enough to fit in a stocking or big enough to wrap and give as a traditional gift.

Aldi has sold a pocketknife device around the holidays. It’s back again this year.

What We Know:

WORKZONE Multi-Tool Giftbox 12-in-1 Hammer

WORKZONE 12-in-1 Hammer Multitool.

The WORKZONE Multi-Tool Giftbox (Product Code: 827699) is an Aldi Find, so it’s only in stores for a short time. Each store receives one shipment, and after that sells out, it’s gone until next year, if Aldi decides to bring it back. You can’t order this online from Aldi if it’s sold out at your local store.

This is scheduled to arrive in Aldi stores on December 6th, 2023.

The WORKZONE Multi-Tool Giftbox cost $12.99 at the time of publication. That’s the same price it was in 2022. That’s also on the cheaper side compared to other multitools I found online.

WORKZONE Multi-Tool Giftbox 9-in-1 Hammer

WORKZONE 9-in-1 Wrench Multitool.

Here’s more information, according to Aldi:

  • Choose a 12-in-1 Hammer Multitool or a 9-in-1 Wrench Multitool
  • The 12-in-1 Hammer Multitool includes a hammer, regular pliers, grip pliers, wire cutter, nail remover, saw, file, knife, bottle opener, slotted screwdriver, serrated blade, and Phillips head screwdriver
  • The 9-in-1 Wrench Multitool includes an LED light, knife, can opener, flathead bit, Phillips head bits (PH1, PH2), bottle opener, flathead screwdriver, and 5 position mini wrench

This is sold under the WORKZONE brand, which is not a company but instead is the private label Aldi uses for various tools. Aldi has previously sold other types of multitools under its Adventuridge outdoor-focused brand.

What We Don’t Know:

I haven’t purchased this multi-tool, so I don’t know how well it works or how it holds up to regular use. Also, the Aldi ad refers to this as a “giftbox,” so I’m guessing it features some type of nice packaging, but I won’t know until it actually arrives in stores. We write open threads to provide readers with a place to discuss Aldi products.
