Promising review: “After having used this for a few months I can confidently say how great this air purifier is.

Promising review: “My new favorite home gadget! Keeps my coffee warm but can also move it around the house to use as a candle warmer. It heats up the candle from bottom to top, the smell is much stronger than with a flame! I’ll confess that the other day I had a cheese dip and thought, let me heat it up (I mean why not, right!?) so I placed in on the warmer and it warmed it up pretty fast and stayed warm for a good while. The warmer is very easy to clean as well. Best part is that it turns on when you place coffee mug, candle on top. When you remove it automatically shuts off. This would be a great gift and the price is awesome!” —REM

I have tried other true wireless earbuds and never liked the look or fit of them. With the AirPods Pro, Apple has answered my prayers, and they’re even better than I could have imagined. The sound cancellation is LEGIT. I own the Bose 700 noise-cancelling headphones and while they’re not as good at noise cancellation as those, I’m blown away by how close it is. The sound quality as well sounds very good to me. I’m by no means an audiophile but I’m a little picky as far as this goes and I’m more than pleased. The ability to switch from noise canceling to transparency mode is awesome as well.” —TCC

Portable charger in black

Promising review: “I ABSOLUTELY LOVE THIS CHARGER! I used to have an older version/model with less charging power which we ran to the ground in a few years. We do Facebook live, lots of pictures and videos. We also have iPads and a Samsung tablet. Not to even mention the many times we’ve bailed our friends out of not having a charger nearby hahahaha. This charger is amazing. It does take a bit to charge, at least 12 hours + but when it does, even a heavy user like myself has juice for at least a week. I love the IQ feature which to me means, it knows when charging is needed so it turns on and off and you don’t have to worry about turning it on or off or worrying about it losing its charge for nothing. That’s peace of mind. I love that it has two USB ports to charge two devices at once and I love the charge level indicators.” —HonestP

An automatic pet feeder you can access right from your phone and either set their feedings on a customized schedule or release the food at your leisure. You can be ANYWHERE and control this feeder so if you’re running late, your furry feline can still get their prompt six o’clock dinner.

Plus, if the power happens to go out, it will continue to operate on batteries until they get home!

Promising review: “I recently got a new puppy, and three times a day I would scoop her some food and pour it in her bowl, but this dispenser takes that off my hands! I don’t need to worry about coming home in time to feed my dog, making correct portions, or forgetting to feed my dog altogether. This machine allows you to feed your pet without the usual hassle. To set it up, you just need to select either breakfast, lunch, or dinner; input the time (the time is only 24-hour mode, which isn’t much of a big deal); and input the portions (since it’s in grams, I will help those of you who have portions in cups: 10 grams is usually around 1/8 cup of dog food; in my video I put 40 grams). This machine will definitely make your life as a pet owner much easier!” —Kevin Wagner

Get it from Amazon for $59.99 (originally $89.99).

A Sonix UV Sanitization box because your gadgets and gizmos a plenty could definitely use some cleaning. Your phone can carry over 25,000 different bacteria (more than a kitchen counter) — YUCK.

The sanitization box kills 99.9% bacteria and viruses and can sanitize hard-to-reach places. It also prevents germs from reproducing, multiplying, and can even neutralize antibiotic-resistant “superbugs.” There is a built-in power port to charge devices during sanitization (we love a multi-tasker).

Promising review: “This checks all the boxes. It’s big enough to fit all the items I want to sanitize and is beautiful. The whole thing is great and works perfectly.” —Michelle Noyss

A set of cable clips to prevent those knots that somehow magically appear in your USB chords out of nowhere.

Promising review: “These little cable organizers are something I’ve imagined and wanted for keeping my charging cables tidy for a long time. I’ve rigged up binder clips and random DIY solutions to this problem on occasion, but these clips are perfect for the job. The 16-piece set is more than adequate for my needs – and there are a lot of options included for different situations (one cable, two cables, three cables, five cables). They are made out of a sturdy yet flexible rubber and have a 3M adhesive pad on the back. They seem to attach in a strong fashion, and because the cables that fit in the slots aren’t going to be that heavy anyway, the adhesive seems more than adequate for the job. Overall, this 16-piece set is a fantastic value for the price and most likely handle any cable organizing needs I have for years to come.” —Bridgie
