One of the most cost-friendly entries into drone photography and videography, the Spark is a great way to catch all of your favorite moments, from the sky.
Omnicharge Omni 20 ($249)
Perfect for anyone on the go, the Omnicharge is a massive battery pack that can recharge a smartphone nine times, a tablet eight times, or fully charge a laptop once. With lots of laptop adaptors, and a tiny OLED screen to show you how much battery is left, it’s a great addition to anyone’s suitcase.
Kindle Paperwhite ($120)
Any Kindle is the perfect gift for Christmas, offering plenty of storage in a sleek, easy-to-read package.
Amazon Echo ($79 and up)
The Echo is now a standard in so many homes. With the ability to play music in different rooms throughout the house and leave messages to other echos, as well as control the lights and order gifts from Amazon, it’s a great option for anyone who wants to up their smart home game.
Apple AirPods ($159)
Apple AirPods are easy to use and extremely convenient. With access to siri and the ability to stream audio through your Apple Watch, they make a great addition to anyone’s Apple product collection.
Apple Watch Series 3 ($329 and up)
The Apple Watch Series 3 is a great smartwatch and now allows you to call and stream music without your phone nearby (with the LTE version).
Surface Pro ($999)
Microsoft’s Surface Pro is a great tablet-laptop combo that offers the ability to draw on the display, while still being decently powerful for something that seems to be a tablet. Be sure to buy the keyboard if you are looking for it to be more user-friendly and more like a laptop.
August Smart Lock ($149)
This is a really neat addition to anyone obsessed with making their home a little smarter. One of our favorite features is that you can add preapproved users if you have friends or family coming over for the weekend—no need to hand over a key!
Sphero R2-D2 ($179)
Sphero’s R2-D2 is the coolest gift for someone who dreams of a land far far away. This R2-D2 is fully remote-controlled through a smartphone app and includes motions and sounds mimicking the real robot.
iPhone X ($999)
Lastly, let’s not forget the newest and biggest tech release of the year: the iPhone X. With Face ID, a pro-level camera, wireless charging and a OLED display, it’s hard to beat this gift.
