GADGETS. Gadgets… Gadgets? What are we considering gadgets these days? Well, really, it’s all those little tech things that make your life better. So really, it could be pretty much anything.

BEST CLOSET GADGET ON AMAZON
Samsung AirDresser 5
Now 26% Off
Like what people in the 1970s thought the future would be, Samsung’s AirDresser dry cleans your clothes for you. It’s a great gadget for anyone with a high-maintenance wardrobe, and there’s three-hanger version that’s a bit more affordable.
BEST AIR PURIFIER ON AMAZON
Dupray Bloom Air Purifier
We’re massive fans of this air purifier slash planter, because most other air purifiers look way too space age. This one is nondescript, powerful, and generally amazing.
BEST SMART HOME GADGET
Amazon Smart Plug
A smart plug turns any electronic smart. The most obvious use here is for lighting: Plug all your lamps into smart plugs, and you can turn on the lights from anywhere. But if you want to get creative, you can use it with your garage door, countertop appliances, and anything else you want to control via phone or voice.
BEST LED GADGET
Philips Hue Gradient Signe Lamp
Ok, no adult should own LED string lights. Let’s cut that out right now. If you have a burning desire for colorful LED lights in your home, this light bar is a tasteful way to do it. Set it up in a corner, facing the wall, and it’ll give the room a soft glow in whatever shade of white or colorful light you want.
BEST DENTAL HYGIENE GADGET
Oral-B Pro 1000

Simple, smart, and incredibly effective. This is the best electric toothbrush out there, and it only costs $70 on Amazon
BEST WATER FLOSSER ON AMAZON
Philips Sonicare Power Flosser 3000
We’re on a little dental hygiene kick over here. This water flosser is phenomenal. It’s easy to use, effective, it’s the answer for anyone who finds it difficult to stay consistent on flossing.
BEST PORTABLE CHARGER
Mregb Solar Charging Power Bank
Now 35% Off
For those long days out when you really rather not ask a bartender or a barista if they have a charger. Plus, since it’s solar-charging, it’s technically got unlimited power to give.
BEST EARBUDS ON AMAZON
Apple AirPods Pro, Lightning Charging
Literally everyone has a pair. It’s time for you to join the ranks.
BEST COOKING GADGET
Nothing changes the way you cook meat like a smart thermometer. No more guesswork. No more opening doors and losing all your heat. Pop this thing in the thickest part, and get meat as well as ambient temperatures straight to your device.
BEST WELLNESS GADGET
A headache-killing, stress reducing temple and sinus massager. Since getting one, there’s rarely been a night where I don’t use it to wind down from a day of staring at screens.
BEST RECOVERY GADGET ON AMAZON
Hypervolt Go 2
A cute, quiet, and affordable massage gun. Now muscle massages aren’t only for extreme athletes and the one percent.
BEST FITNESS GADGET
ArborLeaf Smart Jump Rope
Very few things are as good for your overall health as jumping rope, but it’s never really been optimized for the smart measurement world. This jump rope does that, with all the stats and recommendations you could ever wish for.
BEST BLUETOOTH SPEAKER
Marshall Acton III
A bluetooth speaker that actually looks cool. It’s rare, but it’s the perfect addition to your living or bedroom.
BEST LAPTOP ON AMAZON
Apple 2023 MacBook Air, M2 Chip
Now 12% Off
The laptop the world has been crying out for. Apple finally made a lightweight MacBook Air with a big 15-inch screen with the superstar M2 chip running the whole thing.
BEST KITCHEN GADGET
Ember Temperature Control Mug
Now 14% Off
No more microwaving your morning coffee. No more chugging it before it’s ice cold. This smart mug will keep it at the exact temperature you need.
BEST SLEEP GADGET
Yeah, we love the Loftie Clock, but the new Loftie Lamp is a seriously good product even when used on its own. First, it’s a great bedside light, offering everything from a dim reading light to a bright light-up-the-room deal.
But, it’s the sunrise function that really makes this thing. Wake up as nature intended with a gentle mock sunrise.
BEST NOISE CANCELLING HEADPHONES
I could sit here all day and talk about noise-cancelling headphones, but these from Sony are my favorite that you can get on Amazon. The noise-cancelling is perfect, and the headphones themselves are comfortable enough for everyday wear and long flights.
To add to that, they’re about $200 cheaper than the AirPods Max that everyone under the age of 30 seems to own. The quality is about the same, so get these and save a few bucks.
BEST NON-NOISE CANCELLING HEADPHONES
Adidas RPT-02 SOL
If noise cancelling isn’t your thing, I’m a huge fan of Adidas headphones. That’s right, the sportswear giant weirdly warded into the audio world and ended up making my favorite headphones on the market.
The RPT-02 SOL uses Powerfoyle technology on the headband. Essentially, these things charge on any type of light—sunlight, office light, light bulbs at home. I wasn’t convinced at first, but the light-charging is so good that I literally never plug these things in.
BEST VACUUM ON AMAZON
The best value Dyson vacuum is an even better value when you get it next-day shipped to your door with Prime.
BEST VACUUM UPGRADE ON AMAZON
Dyson V15 Detect
Now 21% Off

BEST WORK GADGET
Moleskine Smart Writing Set
Everyone has seen this notebook, and the question always comes up: Is it really worth it? Yes, yes, a thousand times yes it’s worth the price.
BEST OUTDOORS GADGET ON AMAZON
Moleskine Smart Writing Set
Now 33% Off
Not techy, per se, but the LifeStraw is one of the most life changing gadgets out there. Few other water filters do as much as this little guy—like, you can use it drink out of stagnant puddle. It’s really quite incredible.
