Trends are pointing to gifts that improve life around the home. The world of connected devices at home are dropping in price and getting easier to use. When shopping for someone special, adding on to their favorite existing tech can be a winner.

For example, I have an Amazon Echo Plus. A perfect gift for me could be two ways to expand my love of Alexa coming through the smart speaker. Amazon Sub is an affordable wireless subwoofer that boost the audio by adding more robust bass.

Another idea, Echo battery base lets me take the Echo outside around the house while it’s in range of our WiFi. It’s one of the easiest ways to add music to an Al fresco dining experience.
