Mirror Home Fitness Setup
If you’ve gotten into home fitness thanks to the COVID-19 pandemic, you’ve probably heard of Mirror. The startup offers a smart mirror that helps you stay fit at home in a smarter way than ever before.
Mirror lets you follow along with live or pre-recorded classes. There are more than 50 types to choose from, including cardio, strength training, yoga, and boxing. As a bonus, each Mirror purchase includes a one-year subscription to the company’s library of exercise classes. This is a great (but pricey) gift for any tech lover that wants to get fit in the safety of their own home.
Oculus Quest 2 VR Headset
Virtual reality (VR) is becoming more and more popular. There are now plenty of games and entertainment options that anyone with a VR headset can enjoy. The Oculus Quest 2 is a great choice for beginners since it doesn’t require any additional hardware.
The headset comes with two hand controllers and everything you need to get started is in the box. Oculus Quest 2 offers terrific graphics, immersive entertainment, and is comfortable to wear for hours at a time. Any techie that loves being ahead of the curve will definitely appreciate this VR headset.
E-readers are nothing new. However, the new Kindle Paperwhite is definitely an exciting gadget. It has up to 32 GB of storage space, which is enough to hold the library of any book lover. Meanwhile, it features an adjustable, built-in light for comfortable reading in any lighting conditions. The e-ink display is gentle on the eyes for hours of reading.
If you’re someone who likes to read by the pool, the Kindle Paperwhite is waterproof to alleviate any worries. Finally, its battery lasts for weeks on a single charge.
TP-Link Kasa Smart Plug
Anyone that wants to make their home smarter should pick up a few smart plugs. TP-Link’s Kasa Smart Plugs are the ideal choice. They support Google Assistant and Alexa for seamless voice control.
Smart plugs allow you to upgrade devices you already own (like a coffee maker or lamp) so that you can control them with your voice or smartphone. The Kasa line of smart plugs is arguably the best on the market and won’t let you down.
Bose Noise Canceling Headphones 700
Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, more people are working at home than ever before. That means a great pair of noise-canceling headphones is a must. The Bose Noise Canceling Headphones 700 can’t be beaten. They offer tremendous noise cancelation and audio quality.
These headphones feature 20 hours of battery life on a single charge and work with Google Assistant and Alexa for voice control and hands-free calls. They are also perfect for videoconference calls on Zoom and Microsoft Teams.

The COVID-19 pandemic has put a new emphasis on what it means to be clean. That goes for your devices as well. Fortunately, Phonesoap 3 has you covered. This slick device uses UV-C light to sanitize your phone between uses.
It has been scientifically proven to kill 99.99 percent of bacteria and other germs. Given the fact that most smartphones are dirtier than a public toilet, Phonesoap is a perfect item to add to your gift list.
