If you want to make me happy at Christmas, give me anything tech for the holidays ’cause I absolutely LOVE the fast paced Jetson-world we are living in. With new and exciting innovative products coming out almost monthly, there are tons of things to choose from.
Here’s my must-have gifts for 2015:
Hooverboard Electric Scooters – $350 – $500 – On everyone’s lips this year, I love these although I will admit I am a bit scared to go too far on one myself. But every kid and all the young at heart folks on your list will want one, so splash out.
Samsung Gear VR | $99 – This is at the top of my holiday wish list. Turn your phone into a 360 degree virtual reality experience! What could be more fun than that?
Kicker Speakers and Headphones | $119 to $249 – Kicker is my favorite brand for quality headphones with dynamic sound. This year, they introduced the KPv2, a portable Bluetooth speaker that I just love. I am currently tooting mine all over the house to blast Christmas sounds. The Vapor headphones have been my headphones of choice for the past year now. I am adding the Tabor to my headphone collection since my cat Bodhi keeps chewing through my Vapor cords.
Epson Perfection V600 Photo Scanner | $199 – Make photo books for the whole family with this wonderful scanner. It uploads old photos, slides, and negatives to allows you to restore pictures and rid them of cracks and creases. I have pictures from over a hundred years ago, that I am restoring so this is an awesome product.
Thync | $199 – Another product I can’t get enough of. I simply have to have this amazing relaxation tool.
View Master VR | $29.99 – A junior version of the Samsung, this virtual headset allows fans of the iconic View Master brand, both young and old, to turn into a 360 degree experience.
Samsung Note 5 | Depends on carrier – In a year that saw tons of phone launches, I am living for the Samsung Note 5. I was once an LG gal and the iPhone 6 almost had me leave the Android universe, but the Note 5 is out of this world. With great battery life and an amazing camera, it is hands down the best phone I have ever owned.
Jawbone Up3 | $179 – I have a handful of fitness trackers but this is my current favorite. Sleek and fashionable, yet accurate, I wear mine 24-7. It pairs with a user friendly app available on both iPhone and Android, to track steps, heart rate and sleep patterns. It also offers handy tips on how to improve your health.
Smart One Piano | $300 for keyboard and $1499 for stand up – This is so amazing I did a whole post about it. The Smart One Piano provides music lessons for the whole family without you having to leave the house. It is simply a must.
Olio Clip 4-in-1 Photo Lens | $69.99 – Turn your iPad into a SLR style camera with this tiny and awesome little lenses.
Go Mic by Samson | $39.99 – Gift this to everyone on your list that needs to record meetings or music. In the new year, I will be doing some podcasting and a radio show of my favorite tracks, so I am living for this new product.
Pure Gear Selfie Stick | $29.99 – A photog friend taught me that the best pics are always taken from above and that has never been truer for me than now. This selfie stick is so much fun I want to take it everywhere.
