Buy the electronics they both want and need, not something that will just sit in the closet. These gift ideas will make anyone’s life simpler, safer, more fun … or all of the above.


Amazon smart speaker

When your loved one wants to control their devices with Amazon Alexa, an Echo is a good place to start. Of course there’s the Echo Dot and Echo Plus, but don’t forget the Echo Show and Echo Spot, which both have screens. Perfect for anyone who always has their hands full and those who want to control devices with voice commands.

Google Home

If your friends and family prefer Google Assistant on their phone, try Google Home for the house. There’s also the Google Home Mini and Google Home Max. You might also consider Wear OS by Google, the smartwatch that answers your questions, translates languages, manages tasks and more. Perfect for those who like to say, “Hey, Google!” and control devices with their voice, no matter where they are.

Smart Irrigation

Whether they’re trying to conserve water or simply keeping the grass green, smart irrigation can help. A system like Eve Aqua lets your loved one set sprinklers on a timer, turn water on and off remotely, and calculate how much water is used over time. Perfect for gardeners, friends of the environment and Apple HomeKit™ users.

Bluetooth Shower Mirror and Speaker

The obvious solution when trying to get ready in a hurry in the morning, this Bluetooth speaker lets your loved one answer a phone call even when they’re still soapy. But think about the spa-like treatment that also comes with hours of music in a fog-free, water-resistant device like this one. Perfect for multitaskers and those who sing in the shower.

WiFi Extender

Few things make the modern home more convenient than all-over coverage, so help that person you’re shopping for banish dead spots between floors or in the garage. Perfect for those impatient with slow load times or with devices experiencing battery drain due to poor WiFi connectivity.

Kinetic Power Bank

Charging a phone is tough when you’re always on the move. Your loved one can use their own body energy to keep their devices powered up with this wearable motion charger. Perfect for cyclists, runners, hikers and travelers.

GoPro camera

While everyone else is using their phones to record video, your giftee can take adventure film to the next level when you give them a GoPro camera. They’re a bit on the expensive side, but you get what you pay for – sophisticated settings, durability, waterproofing and the confidence that they’ll get some great shots. Perfect for outdoor adventurers, travelers and anyone who has ever wanted to strap a camera on their dog.

Selfie Light Ring

Whether they’re a budding social media star or just on a lot of video conference calls, your loved one will appreciate a selfie light. This one has a USB cord for charging and three lighting levels to make sure they’re putting their best face forward. Perfect for TikTok, work-from-home employees and anyone who’s ever tried to fix their makeup in bad lighting.

Cork tablet case

Your loved one can protect their iPad and the environment at the same time with this case. Made from cork and recycled fabrics, it’s naturally water-resistant and works to protect the screen from damage when they’re on the move. Reveal Shop also plants a tree for every product sold, so there’s another win for Mother Earth. Perfect for butterfingers, those who love some style with their technology and fans of sustainable materials.
