Handband Pop-up Tape Dispenser


Gift wrapping aid

The handband version of the 3M pop-up tape strip dispenser is fantastic. When wrapping gifts, it’s hard to realize just how much you would appreciate being able to get pieces of tape in exactly the right size, every time, with one hand. The tape strips are not economical for everyday use (about $3.50 for a 3 pack of 75 strip refills), but the gift-wrapping simplification yielded from this small tool is greater than you would expect.
