What’s on Your Gift List?

With the holidays right around the corner, our inboxes are filled with the latest gift ideas, many of them high tech or smart devices guaranteed to make the gift receiver jump with joy. Although I don’t think I need a Wi-Fi ready toaster, there are a few items that I think are worth a second look.
Smart light bulbs are usually controlled by an app on your phone or tablet. You can turn them on or off at the touch of your screen from anywhere that you have a Wi-Fi signal. These are great gifts for the traveler or those who want to be able to turn their lights on before they get home from work. Some of these can even change color to suit your mood.
Bluetooth Trackers are devices that you can put in your wallet or attach to your car keys that help you keep track of things you keep losing. Someone I know misplaces their wallet several times a week and has to search for it before going to work. One of these will be in their stocking this year. They work with an app and will show the location of your “lost” item.
Power boosters are little battery packs that you charge up and drop in your purse or pocket that will recharge your phone without the need for electricity.
Wireless charging pads are pads that you can lay your phone on, and it will charge without the need to plug the phone into the outlet. The pad itself is plugged in and by laying your phone on the pad it charges wirelessly. Not all phones will support this type of charging but the latest models from the last year or so will.
The list could go on for pages, but these are a few that I find useful and worth purchasing. Maybe Santa is listening?
Have a great week!
