iHome Control Smart Plug
An electrical plug may isn’t the most exciting thing to unwrap as a holiday gift, but the iHome Control Smart Plug should still get anyone amped. Use this to turn anything you can plug in into a smart device — perfect for floor lamps, fans, space heaters, or other things people tend to forget to turn off (or want to start running before they get home). Setup is simple enough you won’t need to play tech support, even if you’re giving it to someone not so tech savvy.

Amazon Echo Dot
Know someone who might benefit from a little Alexa in their life? The Dot is the Echo in a smaller package, which makes it great for the bedroom (think: smart alarm clock). It’ll also tie to any sound system either via Bluetooth or 3.5 mm audio cable.
Google Home Mini
The Google Home has a couple of things going for it over Amazon’s Alexa — for one, it’s better at answering random questions like “Who’s won the most daytime Emmy awards?” (Ellen DeGeneres with 29), but if you’ve given your life over to Gmail and Google Docs, it’s a surprisingly agile home companion. This is just like the Google Home smart speaker, but mini! How adorable.
