The Holiday Shopping Countdown is ON!
I rounded up 7 top GADGET picks at Brookstone (Level 3).
Some can help you cross an entire family off your gift list at once!
I’ve been talking about the Scanner Mouse ever since I saw this display the other day at Brookstone! Scanning can’t get any simpler. The Scanner Mouse’s built in scanner allows you to make fast hi-res digital copies of anything — pictures, recipes, receipts, ANYTHING! All you need to do is hit the “Smart Scan” button and scroll over your image or text. You can also use it like a regular mouse. It’s definitely on my wish list this year! Click here to check out a video demonstration of the Scanner Mouse in action.
And now for a gift that is small in size but can make a big impact! Check out the HDMI Pocket Projector! This pocket projector can work with most smart phones as well as other devices to give you a big screen display! It features duel speakers. Plus, the Pocket Projector is rechargeable and can project for up to two hours at a time! It’s perfect for gathering the family together for a slideshow of family pictures or a big screen movie night! This makes a memorable gift for an entire family and can help you check multiple people off your gift list at once!
Turn your tablet into a powerhouse with this Bluetooth Keyboard with Portfolio Case! The wireless keyboard can conveniently click into the fold over magnetic case for when you want to carry it with you! The case features a built-in stand. It conveniently allows you to access built-in cameras and ports. Multiple color options are available.
Don’t tell my husband, but he’s getting the Motorized Grill Brush. This will be a good test to see if he really reads my blog! No scrubbing required. The motorized brush fights off grease and grime. Plus, it even has steam cleaning capabilities. Just fill it with water, push a button to spray some mist, and it turns to steam on your hot grill and can loosen up stubborn residue. I have a feeling that I just may come out on the wining end with this gift. Less time spent cleaning = more meals!
The words high-tech don’t exactly come to mind when I think about cozying up with a warm blanket. But, that’s exactly how I would describe the Performance Throw Blanket. The fleece side keeps you warm and toasty. Then, there is a cool side. It has the same kind of moisture wicking technology that you’ll find in a high-tech workout shirt.
According to Brookstone, “The technical performance fabric wicks moisture and heat away from the skin and disperses it over exclusive channeled fibers where moisture evaporates quickly. The advanced breathability of the fabric allows airflow through the blanket so you can wrap up in any season or climate all year long without overheating.”
Brookstone also offers similar fleece, moisture-wicking Performance Socks.
Experience your red wine to its fullest with the Aero Wine Aerator by Brookstone. Brookstone touts that you’ll experience, “Better wine in less than a minute.” On the website, I read, “Younger and more full-bodied wines often require lengthy aging to reach their full potential. By infusing air directly into the wine bottle, Aero softens the wine’s tannins for more smoothness and enhanced flavors–all faster than traditional cellaring and decanting. The result? A more mature, better tasting wine in under a minute.” It also makes for a fun cocktail party conversation piece!
Meet SnackMan! Fill this motion-activated dispenser with your favorite guilty pleasure, healthy snack or even cereal. Yes, the colorful jelly beans an instant pop of cheer, but I’m thinking about all the other things I could get my crew to eat if it just took a wave of a hand to dispense a snack. Think sunflower seeds! You get to pick your portion. Choose from a handful, large handful or bowl setting. (I may not reveal this part to my kids).
SnackMan makes an ideal gadget gift if you want to get a gift that an entire family will enjoy! Or, he can fit in well at an office. The fact that he offers touch free dispensing will definitely score him anti-germ spreading points!
