Gifts with an edge: The paper hammer

As the holiday season approaches, we thought you might appreciate some gift suggestions with a twist, appropriate for those on your list who aren't satisfied with the same old, same old.

Today's suggestion: The Flat-packed Hammer from Vert Design. The hammer comes in a flat sheet cut into pieces, resembling the snap-apart sections of an old-style model car or plane. The person you give this gift to snaps the component pieces apart and, by carefully assembling them, ends up with a handsome wooden mallet. The tool is perfect for bopping home a loose peg in a bookcase, a cat lunging for the cheese log, or a younger brother unaware of the power of armaments.

Vert Design is an Australian company. The hammer will set you back $45, Australian, or about US $40.
