It’s that time of the year again! For this gift guide we’ve put together a list of some of our favorite gifts for the home – but really for the whole family. We’ve  made sure to include products from a wide price range, so you can decide to go large, or not to spend much at all, but you’ll still manage to impress them.

Nokia Home

There are countless home security cameras on the market now, but the Nokia Home stands out by being feature rich. To that effect, the Home features a 135° wide-angle lens with high-quality night vision, 12x zoom with auto enhancement,  air quality detection, and a neat baby monitor mode, all wrapped in a beautiful wood finish. You can pick up the Nokia Home for $199.

You might say that LG’s Signature collection is the creme de la creme of high tech kitchen appliances. So if you want to spoil the whole family, consider the LG SIGNATURE InstaView Door-in-Door Counter-Depth Refrigerator. The fridge features a sleek mirrored glass panel that lights up with two quick knocks, allowing you to see inside the fridge compartment without ever opening the door. Not only is this super cool but it actually reduces cold air loss to help keep food fresher longer. The fridge retails for $6999.

Black & Decker Grimebuster Pro

Don’t have the budget for a big appliance? You can still impress mom (or whoever) with this practical cleaning tool from Black & Decker. This automated scrubber makes scrubbing away tough dirt in the kitchen or bathroom a lot easier thanks to its powerful rotation motion. We love that it comes with a convenient charging stand, so no batteries are required. You can pick it up for just $29.99.

Shark ION Robot 750

iRobot might be the leader in the robot vacuum space, but you’ll want to consider Shark’s new robot vacuums. Their Shark ION robot 750 features smart sensor navigation that uses proximity sensors to assess and adapt to the surrounding obstacles. It can also be controlled over wi-fi with an app, and offers similar features to iRobot’s 890 vacuum – yet it costs $150 less. That’s a lot of pennies saved!

Logitech Harmony Hub

If you’re like us, your home is getting smarter with new smart gadgets being added to it all of the time. Logitech’s Harmony Hub brings together your smart home and home entertainment devices by letting you control all of them with your phone. The Hub lets you control lights, change volume, and more – and it also works with Alexa. The Logitech Harmony Hub retails for $99.

TCL Roku C Series

The TCL Roku C series TV is one of our favorite TVs for several reasons. For starters, it’s affordably priced. It also packs in the awesome Roku OS that we love, along with excellent Dolby Vision HDR picture quality, and a sleek contemporary design. But what really makes it the ultimate TV gift is that while most TVs suffer from lackluster audio quality and they require using an external speaker system, the C series comes with an excellent built-in sound bar powered by Dolby Audio. Pricing for the TCL C series begins at $699 for the 55” model.

Amazon Echo Show

This one is for the Alexa fans! Powered by an Intel processor, the Amazon Echo Show is pretty much the most powerful and versatile Alexa device yet. The Echo show features a large color display which can be used to watch flash briefings, make video calls, check the weather, see lyrics, and more. Your Echo Dot doesn’t seem that cool anymore, does it? The Amazon Echo show retails for $229 and comes in a choice of white or black.

Mophie Powerstation Mini – Speckled Magenta

GearDiary 8 Hot Holiday Gifts for the Whole Family

This is one of our favorite stocking stuffers that everyone in the family will be thrilled to get. It’s a small battery pack from one of our favorite battery pack companies – Mophie. With a 3,000 mAh capacity, it will provide most phones with nearly a full charge. But what we especially appreciate is that the T-Mobile edition is covered in speckled magenta. You can pick up one for $29.99 at T-Mobile.
