Owlet: The Owlet Wearable Baby Monitor
Traditional baby monitors can only do so much. Sure, you can see and hear your baby, but you can’t see or hear what’s going on inside them. Owlet has the solution for that. The Owlet Wearable baby monitor is a smart sock that slips right on your baby’s foot and keeps constant track of their heart rate and oxygen levels. then, it beams that information right to your phone, giving new parents a piece of mind that has never really been experienced before. We had a chance to try it out and it was great. There are so many things that new parents worry about. We saw that when the parents had the added security of the Owlet on their child, they felt better and more relaxed. That alone makes this possibly the best gift ever created for new parents this holiday season!

Alex Posture Tracker and Coach
Everyone has that one friend or family member who slouches too much. Sometimes they don’t even know they do it. They are just the victim of endless hours spent in an office chair, slumped over a computer. Alex is a great gift for them. It just slips onto your head (like a pair of backwards sunglasses, but far more subtle) and it helps them learn how to sit and stand up straight again like they were meant to. Whenever you slip into a bad posture position, Alex gives you a little buzz in the back of your neck and makes you aware of it. You can even sync it up with their app and actively track and train your posture progress.

Torch Coat Heater
I’m not sure if you noticed, but it’s getting cold outside. Sometimes just a jacket and mittens doesn’t do the trick. If you know someone who can’t seem to stay warm, the Torch coat heater is amazing! It’s a USB powered heater that you can attach to the inside of any jacket. It is downright toasty and the the charge on the battery lasts for upwards of five hours! We loved how easily it installed into any coat, without doing the clothing any damage, and the insane difference it made in warmth. Forget your friends, grab one of these for yourself!

Bionic BIrd Drone
There are so many drones out there this year, but they all look the same. The Bionic Bird is something different. Like most drones on the market, you control it with your phone, but instead of that standard copter, you are flying an actual bird. It’s flapping its wings! Fact, it is so natural in the air that it may even attract other birds. I can’t say it did that for us, but it definitely didn’t scare them away. We loved the Bionic Bird because flying it was such a unique experience. It was organic and it felt natural. Most of all, it was a heck of a lot of fun!

Luminoodle: Light Rope
We can’t say enough good things about the Luminoodle. First and foremost… probably one of the most fun things to say in the world…. LUMINOODLE. Try it! Beyond that, there is not a single person in the world that has access to a USB battery that can’t use one. The Luminoodle is an astonishingly bright, flat, rollable LED rope. To power it, you’ve just got to plug it into any USB port and you’re set. We jumped on it. We dunked it. Nothing stopped it from working. You could keep one in your car and ten in your home. It comes in 5 and 10’ lengths and you’ll be shocked at how much light it gives off. The 10’ lit a room really well for us. Trust us, grab a few of these for gifts and some for yourself.

Thync might be one of the most unique devices we’ve ever featured in the gift guide. It is actually probably the first “mood altering” device that we’ve really ever seen. It works by sending little pulses through your skull that can be used to either relax you or get you pumped up. Trying it out was probably one of the biggest Star Trek moments of our lives. For a moment, I felt like I was going to be assimilated, but once i sat back and let it do its thing, I could really feel it doing it’s thing. Personally, I prefer the calming mode of the device over the energy mode, but that’s just because I’ve never had trouble being energetic. This is a great gift for open minded, tech friendly people who either need a little help getting moving, or need a little help slowing down.

Saver Personal Emergency breather
Another truly thoughtful and innovative gift item we suggest this season is the Saver personal emergency breather. This is a very special item that is worth giving to anyone you care about. At around half the size of a can of soda, the Saver can be the difference between life and death in a fire. When you are trapped in a fire, a lot of times, it’s the smoke and toxic gasses that get you. The Saver gives you up to five minutes of breathing that will filter out the carbon monoxide and smoke. Some gifts are for fun and some are just because you love someone. Parents, get this for your kid who lives in a dorm, and get some more to keep in each bedroom of your home.

Mofily Yocam Waterproof lifecam
While the Saver is about saving your life, the Yocam is about recording it for posterity. It’s a fully waterproof lifecam that is perfect for recording all of your adventures, no matter where you go. It’s a great camera for when you don’t feel like pulling out your phone (like in the pool), and it’s stick shape makes it easy and pretty fun to run around with. A lot of people over 35 don’t get the idea of a lifecam, but for most people in their 20’s and under, the reality is that every moment of your life can be recorded if you want. Your memories can be captured and no moment can be lost. Even better, with Yocam, they can be easily shared. We give this one a high recommendation.

Of all the items that we’ve tested this year, none has gotten more use than the ZUS. Do you know someone who always loses their car in a big parking lot? This is the best gift you could ever get them. Seriously. THE BEST. You plug in the charger to your car, and then you can use that as a device charger in your car. Next, you get the app. Once you turn the app on they connect. If you turn it off after that, it’ll stay connected. Fast Forward to 3 hours later. You are walking out of a crowded mall and have no idea where you parked. Pop on the app and just follow the arrow back to your car. It will get you within 30 feet, every time. We aren’t sure, but it might just be magic. Then, on top of it all, the app will run diagnostics on your car battery whenever you want. It’s nice icing on the cake.

Star Wars Holograms
When it comes to medical and technical holograms, you can’t get much better than Zebra Imaging. That’s why we had to share their Star Wars holograms with you. The only bad thing is there’s no way you can see how amazing they are without seeing them in person (which one lucky reader will be able to do when they win a set!), but let me tell you. These images jump off the screen in ways that will blow your mind. They have three holograms available: The Trench Run, Han Solo in Carbonite, and Kylo Ren. Supplies on them are limited and they will never make any more Star Wars holograms after this. If you know a Star Wars fan, you owe it to them to get this. From top to bottom, Zebra did everything right. The images are beautiful, and even the base is custom built to look like Darth Vader’s mask! Seriously. Get your Star Wars fan at least one of these, while they are still available!
