Edifier S1000DB Audiophile Active Bookshelf Speakers
Give the gift of high-fidelity sound
Great for audiophiles young and old, this set of bookshelf speakers was Consumer Reports’ top-rated out of more than 90 models. And because it works with Bluetooth, you won’t have to hide any unseemly wires, either.
Mophie 3-in-1 wireless charging pad
Behold the gift of a convenient powering station
After Apple dropped its wireless charging station earlier this year, Mophie’s 3-in-1 pad was a godsend for those of us who love the convenience of charging without the tangled mess of cables. The pad can charge an Apple Watch, iPhone and AirPods all at the same time.
Samsung POWERbot R7065 Robot Vacuum
Grant the gift of easy cleaning
Brains and brawn meet with the Samsung POWERbot Robot Vacuum. It was the top-rated model in Consumer Reports’ testing, earning perfect scores for its cleaning powers on both carpet and bare floors, as well as its ability to navigate furniture-filled rooms.
Away Carry-On with Tile Luggage Tag
Present the perfect gift for the frequent flier
The Instagram-famous suitcase comes loaded with smart features like an ejectable battery, zipper lock, laundry bag and outlet adapters. Add in the Tile luggage tag and they’ll be all set for their next adventure. Not sure about the high price? Here’s what our friends at Reviews.com said: “There are cheaper suitcases out there, but you probably won’t love any of them like you’ll love Away.”
Instant Pot Smart Wifi
Get a great gift for the gourmet in your group
The Instant Pot is a cult sensation that actually lives up to the hype: Wirecutter and Reviews.com both named it their favorite pressure cooker. This latest model is both Wi-Fi and Alexa enabled, so you can control the cooker without ever leaving the couch.
