The holidays are in full swing, and if you’re like me, you are already starting to do some online shopping (or even venturing to a real store). To help spur some ideas, these gadgets and products for the holiday season might be just the ticket for the hard-to-please.
1. Chasing Paper Art Print ($95)
For anyone who wants a quick and easy way to order pictures that arrive framed and ready to hang, Chasing Paper is a good option. The company is more known for their wallpaper and other decorative products, but the frame I tested looks great and is made from quality materials.
2. Logitech MX Mechanical Mini Keyboard ($150)
A couple of our writers here use an iPad to do their reviews, and this keyboard from Logitech makes it far easier to type. (I still prefer a laptop, sorry colleagues.) The MX Mechanical Mini works with the Mac or an iPad; keys clack in a satisfying and productive way.
3. Positive Grid Spark Mini ($230)
My favorite music product of the year, the Positive Grid Spark Mini works with your phone so you can emulate different amps, play along with songs from a vast library, and even create songs that automatically add bass and drums.
4. Miir TruEnamel Tumbler ($30)
Here’s a tip for anyone who drinks a lot of coffee like me. You will save way more of the magic black liquid if you use one of these enamel cups, which has a tight-fitting lid that keeps your beverage warm.
5. Slime Emergency Roadside Deluxe Kit ($61)
Grab one of these emergency kits for just about anyone you know who drives a car. The package is extensive, including jumper cables, a way to inflate a flat tire, and even a glowing emergency signal. The carrying bag keeps it all in one kit.
For the holiday season, this roaster makes it easier to cook up a ham or a roast in no time. I liked the large handles on the side, and there are two different lids — one that you can see through and one that also doubles as a grill pan.
