When you’re picking gifts for your outer circle, you can always phone it in a little and fall back on a nice bottle of wine or a sweet-smelling chic candle (hey, I’d be happy with either!).
With your immediate family, however, gift giving is a very different task.I get wrapped up (heh) in the fact that each choice has to be perfect for each person.I want to see their face light up with a glow that says, “Wow, mom/wifey really loves and得到me!”
I teamed up with沃尔玛（Walmart）to do some holiday shopping for the fam this year.In addition to being a great spot for snagging the best智能家居礼品betway多彩百家乐(you can overemphasize聪明since you’ll be going high tech AND saving money, too!), I was also pleasantly surprised to find fun stuff my husband will dig, along with the kids, and the dogs.
Here’s what I’m getting for each family member this season.
For Spencer: My High School Senior
If you have a teenage boy, you know that their backpacks are seemingly filled with concrete.How he manages to haul that lead satchel around all day on his skinny frame I will never know.So anything I can do to make his load lighter, consider it done.Not only is theHP的Chromebooklightweight, it’s on-trend (computers with bulky software applications are old news— it’s all about云端these days) Parents will like the option to add an affordable two- or three-year Walmart Protection Plan because, well, he’s a teenager and that thing gets chucked around a lot.
For Annie: My Middle Schooler
Annie was my非视频玩游戏kid for a good long run, but I have finally lost her to Fortnite.As a rule we don’t really spend money on digital goods (outfits, weapons, help in the game) but the holidays call for a treat: She’ll love the豪华方正的包for Xbox, which comes with special features like a “rare starter hero pack” and “four exclusive founder’s loot piñata packs.” Do I have any idea what those are?Nope.Are they super cool in the teenage gaming world?I’ve been told, yes.
For Mike: My Audiophile Husband
My husband’s in the music biz, and travel’s a bunch, so I can’t ever go wrong with high quality noise cancelling headphones that provide audiophile-friendly sound and keep crying baby noise The百色QuietComfort无线耳机tick all those boxes, along with cushy ear pads, a compact case that’s easy to pack in your carry-on, and even have Google Assistant on board.In other words, he won’t even have to take them off to ask about his next scheduled meeting or get a weather update.Sounds like a genius idea.
For the Dogs (Well, sorta)
I know Jenny and Marty are going to love the Wifi ConnectediRobot公司的Roomba 670.Okay, this one might be a little bit for me, too, but in all fairness, I’ll be a way happier, loving mom to them if there isn’t dog hair and hedgehog stuffing all over the floor all of the time (and I don’t have to spend my valuable time vacuuming it up!).Dual Multi-Surface brushes mean dirt, dust and crumbled dog food will be swept up with ease, and the edge-sweeping brush gets into corners and under cabinets.Smart sensors make sure it covers every corner of the house, and voice control means all I have to do is holler to tidy up.Plus, Marty will totally chase this baby around, so really, it’s a toy too, right?
For Me: Mutitasking Mom
You didn’t think I’d leave myself out, did you?Don’t I deserve a little tech treat for being so darn thoughtful?TheFitbit的Versais the gift for me this season.这是圆滑，轻巧的SmartWatch我一直觊觎，有超过15的锻炼方式，支付能力，个性化的提醒，以及电池寿命延伸过去四天。我爱健身手表的风格：它的大时尚脸，时尚前卫的乐队让可穿戴即使对于挑剔的贝贝喜欢我。家庭：认为这是一个很大的提示提示。
