1. Apple AirPods Pro
It should come as no surprise that the iconic Apple AirPods made Google’s list. The white earbuds are, according to our experts, the best that Apple has ever made. They fit comfortably in your ear, sync easily to your other Apple devices and have impressive sound quality complete with noise-canceling technology.
2. Nintendo Switch
The Nintendo Switch was one of the hottest gifts of 2020 and it’s topping wishlists again in 2021. The portable gaming console is selling out fast everywhere but you can still find it at a few retailers. With hundreds of games to choose from, it’ll keep both kids and adults entertained for hours.
3. Keurig K-Mini Plus Coffee Maker
A Keurig coffee maker is always a great gift for anyone who enjoys a cup of joe on the regular. The K-Mini is slim and sleek—perfect for sitting on the countertop—and comes in a handful of pretty colors. It can brew delicious coffee in seconds and even has built-in storage for extra K-cups.
4. Apple iPad
The tech fans on your list will be thrilled to find the newest Apple iPad under the Christmas tree. Year after year, our experts at Reviewed agree it’s the best tablet you can buy, thanks to its stylish and durable design, powerful performance and versatility. Your giftee can use it to jot down notes, scroll through Pinterest, FaceTime their loved ones and more.
5. Instant Pot Duo
People are obsessed with Instant Pots—and for good reason. The Duo, which has more than 136,000 rave reviews on Amazon, has seven cook functions, from slow cooking to pressure cooking to steaming to sautéing. It can have a tasty homemade meal on the table in half the time of traditional cook methods, which busy people will appreciate.
6. Dyson Airwrap Styler
You may know Dyson for its vacuums and air purifiers, but the home brand also makes a highly coveted hair tool. One of Reviewed’s experts splurged on the Dyson Airwrap Styler and says it was worth every single cent. She likes how efficient it is and that it gives you professional-level styling with almost zero effort on your part. No more bad hair days!
7. Barbie Dreamhouse
Meet the 2021 version of Barbie’s Dreamhouse. It’s exactly where every little girl would want to live when she grows up. Standing three feet tall, the dollhouse includes tons of fun features and trendy accents, like a working elevator, a pool with a slide and a kitchen that makes sounds from the stove sizzling to the oven timer ticking. Pair it with a couple of dolls and your kiddo will have an afternoon of fun.
8. JBL Flip 5
Our experts at Reviewed dubbed the JBL Flip 5 the best value portable Bluetooth speaker of 2021. Available in a range of colors and prints (including camo), it’s durable and waterproof, so your giftee can tote it from the beach to the campsite to the park to the office to the party. It has great sound quality and a surprisingly long battery life, as well.
9. Fitbit Versa 3
Take your giftee’s exercise game to the next level in 2022 with the Fitbit Versa 3. It looks just like the Apple Watch and can track almost anything and everything, from steps to heart rate to sleep activity. In testing fitness trackers, our experts liked how reliable the Versa 3 is and that it’s compatible with Amazon Alexa and Google Assistant.
10. Nespresso VertuoPlus Coffee and Espresso Maker
For a truly luxurious cup of coffee, the Nespresso VertuoPlus is where it’s at. At Reviewed, we love that the espresso maker produces a deliciously creamy brew that’s more flavorful and aromatic than most other machines. You can choose from espresso or coffee in multiple sizes and it takes just 15 seconds to heat up in the morning.
11. Paw Patrol Transforming Tower
Paw Patrol toys are all the rage among the younger set this holiday. One of the top ones? This giant, 3-foot-tall transforming tower is part command center and part rescue ramp and comes loaded with sounds and lights that will make playtime way more fun. It also includes vehicles, Paw Patrol figurines, a clip-on backpack and sticker sheets.
12. Playstation 5
If you or your giftee has been trying to get your hands on a PS5 since it was released in fall of 2020, you can still snag the wildly popular gaming console in time for the holidays. It’s sold out almost everywhere but the Playstation 5 gaming bundle—which includes the console and assorted other accessories—is available at Walmart.
