As Max gets older, tech gifts get more and more important to him, so I'm always on the lookout for great tech gifts for him and other kids in our lives. I've put together a selection of our favorites here.
For the Star Wars fans, you may already have the Sphero BB-8 that was released last year, but this year adds the Force Band, which adds a new level of control to your app-controlled droid and is so stinking cool looking! We love watching The Force Awakens with BB-8; if you haven't tried it out, it's so fun to watch him react to what's happening on the screen. (Get the BB-8 with Force Band combo pack here, if you need both!)
We shared some information about littleBits this fall, and definitely think they're a great gift for kids of many ages; there are a variety of sets at a number of price points, so you're sure to find the perfect match for a mini inventor in your life! Check out our Gadgets & Gizmos video here.
We're currently obsessed with our little HP Sprocket printer! It's available on HP.com, Amazon, or at Best Buy, and I can't say enough good things about it! Print cute little 2″x3″ sticky-backed photos directly from your phone, and decorate your life with photos you love. Don't forget to tell Santa to pick up lots of extra Zink paper so you can get printing right away!
Does someone need a new computer this holiday? This is the perfect time to pick up a new HP Laptop on QVC! You can get a killer deal on a powered-up HP laptop during QVC’s Best Black Friday™ Sale weekend! The HP 15 Notebook comes with Windows 10 Home, 2TB hard drive, high-definition display, AMD Radeon R5 graphics, HP TrueVision HD Camera, DTS Studio sound and much more. QVC has two exclusive colors; minty green and soft lilac, and will feature this laptop at the lowest price of the season on Saturday, November 26th. (QVC is a service mark of ER Marks, Inc. The QVC.com domain name is registered to QVC, Inc.)
There's no question that one of the hottest gifts this season is the mini NES Classic Edition. It is absolutely as awesome as you hope it would be, and I'm hearing that it will be restocked everywhere soon, so keep an eye out if it's on your family's wish list! I'm loving sharing my own childhood favorites with Max (and showing off my mad Mario skillz, yo)
For the newer generation of Nintendo player, there's the Pokemon GO Plus Bracelet. It's a Bluetooth activated wristband that will alert you when there's a Pokemon nearby.
And last, but SO not least, check out these AfterShokz Trekz Titanium Mini headphones! They sent us a sent to check out, and they're so cool, I'm a little jealous that they fit Max better than they fit me!
Bone conduction technology is so fascinating to me; the sound quality is fantastic, and the quality on these is really great. They feel really sturdy and the wireless is nice for Max when he's watching videos or playing a game on his tablet.
I'm thrilled to be giving one lucky reader a set of their very own Trekz headphones; just use the widget below to enter, and good luck!
