Bestselling tech gifts

1. Amazon Smart Plug

I’m telling you, once you’ve installed these in your house you’ll have a hard time going back. I use them with our living room lamps, so I can tell Alexa to turn them on the second I walk in the door. You can also schedule the lights to come on when you want.

2. Night Light Bluetooth Speaker

In addition to its immersive sound, this Bluetooth speaker has six different color settings. It makes the perfect bedside table light or outdoor speaker.

3. Tile Mate

This little square is a location tracker and it’s the absolute perfect gift for anyone who constantly loses their keys or wallet. You can make it ring from up to 200 feet away, which is perfect for those everyday necessities that somehow get lost around the house.

4. Topvision Mini Projector

If someone sidled up to me at a party and whipped this tiny projector to display a movie, I'd probably give them my hand in marriage. This projects clear, bright films and it can be connected to your phone or computer.

5. Bose SoundLink Micro Portable Outdoor Speaker

I use this little speaker all the time and whenever I have people over they’re always amazed at the sound quality. It’s also waterproof and lasts up to six hours after one charge.

6. Keychain Charger

This might be the most convenient way to charge your phone. Snap the charger onto any key ring, and carry it with you everywhere you go. The tassels come in pink, black, white and blue.

7. Dyson Airwrap

The Airwrap comes with a variety of tools, including a curler, that can take your hair from completely wet to perfectly styled without using extreme heat.

8. Digital Picture Frame

This is the perfect gift for family members who keep requesting to see photos of your adventures. It has a 10-inch screen that displays high-resolution photos. It can also play music or videos. It would be perfect to pre-load with photos or a sweet video ahead of time for an extra surprise.

9. Away Luggage

I was just in the airport and saw this luggage everywhere. I thought it had to be over-hyped, but after further investigation, I'm sold. Not only is it spacious and convenient, it has a removable battery charger so that you can plug your phone in and relax while waiting for your flight.

Best tech gifts under $50

1. Stroller Hook Charger

This hook is almost as tough as Mom (I said almost). It holds up to 25 pounds and is definitely a powerful update to your morning stroll.

2. Oral-B White Pro Rechargeable Electric Toothbrush

I asked for this toothbrush as a stocking stuffer last year and I've never looked back. My pearly whites feel clean and the self-timer helps me actually brush for two full minutes. The charge lasts long enough to take it on a weekend trip with no problem. I'd buy it over and over again.

Best tech gifts under $100

1. Courant Catch 1 Wireless Charger

I got one of these wireless chargers this year and found it completely game-changing. You can just toss your phone on the dock and it charges the phone completely without ever having to plug it in. There are even larger versions that can accommodate two phones or your phone and AirPods.

Why waste time sitting by the phone charger? This battery pack phone case fits iPhones in sizes 6s, 6s Plus and 7 plus. The case provides an extra 12 hours of talk time, 8 hours of video streaming or web browsing or 7 hours of gaming.

7. Self-Rolling Smart Yoga Mat

I hate rolling up yoga mats so much that it almost keeps me from going to class. Now, I don't have to worry about it. This soft, cushy yoga mat rolls itself up and grips to the floor, so there's no more sweaty slipping. It also comes with yoga routines that you can hear using any smart speaker. Namaste, y'all.
