Best Small, Portable Bluetooth SpeakerSmall, yet mighty

The Bose SoundLink Micro is the perfect Bluetooth speaker for those that want something small, but still want some good sounding audio out of it. This one is very small, but you would be surprised at how good the audio is here. Because the audio is so good, the battery life does suffer. We're looking at around five hours on a single charge. That's still enough to play some music for a good part of the day, but not quite enough for a full day.

Bose SoundLink Micro - Amazon - $79

Best Quick Charge 3.0 Car ChargerCharge your phone in the car, faster

This dual-port car charger from Anker is a great gift for anyone. That is because it sports two Quick Charge 3.0 ports, which are also backwards compatible for phones that don't have Quick Charge 3.0 support. This is going to allow people to quickly charge up their smartphones while they are on the go, which is a great thing here.

Best Smart ThermometerFind out if you have a fever without extra pain

Thermometers use to be a bit painful, but now you can just put it on a person's forehead to get the temperature and even sync it with the app on your smartphone. This means that you can really take note of how your (or someone else's) temperature has been. It also means that you can give the doctor information about how long you've had this fever or your temperature has been higher.

Best Smart PlugMake anything "smart" 

If you have someone on your list who is a big smart home fan, then a smart plug is a great option. It's something that won't break the bank – at under $40 usually – and it does make just about anything in your home smart. Whether that is an old lamp, a microwave, or even your Christmas Tree. The Wemo Mini Smart Plug is a good option for a lot of people out there, especially those that are looking to bring down their energy costs.

It's inevitable, soon everything is going to be controlled by robots, so why not pick one up. The Anki Vector is the latest robot here, and it's a pretty cool one. It can do tricks and can recognize who you are by what you look like, and even take a selfie. It's a pretty cool robot, and one that can be your best friend. Anki is actually going to be adding Alexa support before the holidays, which gives you another reason to grab this one.

Anki Vector - Amazon - $175

Best Streaming Media PlayerDitch that "smart" operating system on your TV for a Fire TV Stick

Amazon released a 4K version of its Fire TV Stick recently, and it is a pretty impressive stick to be honest. For just $50, you get 4K resolution here, but you also get Dolby Atmos and Dolby Vision support, if your TV supports it. This is a pretty big deal, as that is going to provide you with an even better looking picture, and even better sounding audio. And getting 4K out of a stick this small is also pretty impressive, to be honest. Amazon Fire TV has all of the big name apps as well, including Netflix, Hulu, DIRECTV NOW, Sling TV and so much more. So there will be plenty to watch on the Fire TV Stick 4K.

Best Smartphone Camera LensMake that smartphone camera even better with Macro and Telephoto lenses

Xenvo has a lens kit here that will provide a macro and a wide-angle lens for your smartphone. Allowing you to take your smartphone camera game to the next level. This will work on both Android and iOS, and that is because it doesn't use an app, it just clips onto your phone and you use the existing Camera app on your phone. It's a really cool product, especially if you are a vlogger, as you can get a wider-angle out of that camera, and fit more into the picture. The Macro lens is also good for getting those closeups on different subjects.
