For the work-from-home warrior
A quality webcam goes a long way while working from home. We love Logitech’s C920s webcam for great image quality on daily Zoom calls and meetings. It also rings in at an affordable price point.
For the reader
Fans of the Kindle Paperwhite will love this updated 2021 model. It has a new feature coveted by readers everywhere: an adjustable warm light for reading in the dark. It also boasts a clear display and comfortable form so you can read on the go.
For the gamer
Gamers will love the Oculus Quest 2. The all-in-one virtual reality headset allows you to step into different worlds with a premium display and intuitive controls. Meet up with friends and play with the device’s live casting feature.
For the wireless earbud aficionado
A pioneer in wireless earbuds, Apple AirPods make it easy to listen to your favorite music and podcasts anywhere. Pair them with your iPhone or Macbook for seamless integration.
For the world traveler
It can be a nightmare to figure out what charger to pack while traveling. Thankfully, Anker’s PowerPort PD 2 takes the headache out of this process. It has USB-A and USB-C charing at up to 20 watts, and its small size and folding plug make it perfect for stowing away in baggage.
For the coffee lover
Sick of your morning brew getting cold on your desk? Look no further than the Ember Mug. With features including Smart LED that shows when your coffee reaches a perfect temperature, and a built-in battery than can keep your drink warm for hours, it’s no wonder the mug is popular among professionals everywhere.
For the Clark Griswolds
If holiday lights are your thing, then you need Belkin’s Wemo Wi-Fi Smart Outdoor Plug. The weather-resistant, two-socket model makes it easy to control lights using smart-home interfaces from Apple, Amazon, Google, and others, as well as through its own Wemo app.
For the security buff
They said it couldn’t be done, but Ring beat expectations with a DIY home-security system that can challenge ones from established security firms. With built-in WiFi and cellular connection, the Alarm Pro Security System makes it easy to add and control cameras in a few taps on your phone.
For the neat freak
It might scare your pets, but iRobot’s Roomba j7+ Self-Emptying Vacuum will help you get the cleaning job done at home. It intuitively swerves around obstacles on the floor and empties itself at its base station’s waste bin for weeks on end.
For the fitness fanatic
If you’re a serious athlete, you’ll love Whoop’s screenless fitness tracker. Worn on the wrist or in a variety of apparel, the tracker’s sensor detects where it is on the body and collects information accordingly. It’s a great tool for training and injury prevention.
For the outdoorsy type
BioLite’s AlpenGlow 250 Portable Light will help you avoid blackouts anywhere, from at-home to on a camping trip in the middle of nowhere. Its built-in battery allows it to run for up to 200 hours on low, making it the perfect accessory for you to take on your next overnight outdoor adventure.
For the binge-watcher
Stream your favorite shows and movies using your voice through this Fire TV Stick. It’s compatible with most popular streaming apps, so you can get your Netflix and chill on this holiday season.
For the plant mom/dad
Those with a green thumb will enjoy the Click and Grow Smart Garden. The system allows three herbs to grow at once with an LED light—and a little love, of course.
For the music lover
Wireless and durable, Beats’ Beats Flex All-Day Wireless Earphones are the perfect way to listen to your favorite tunes, whether you’re at home or on-the-go. They get bonus points for multiple eartip options and helpful on-device controls for music, calls, and voice assistant.
For the pet owner
