This trampoline assembles quite nicely. The only thing you need to watch are the holes the poles connect to. Since they’re all on and over each other it’s easy to get it wrong. Make sure to look at the detailed directions, I learned the hard way that I had to flip a few of the places around.

KitchenAid KFC3516QHSD 100 Year Limited Edition Queen of Hearts Food Chopper

Check Price on Amazon

Remember all the fun you had as a kid playing with play dough? I’m not sure why but for some reason it’s just really fun. Maybe it’s the act of mixing water with flour to stir all the lumps out. I really don’t know why. But the point is, that your kids will love the KitchenAid Food Chopper, because basically it’s just a play dough machine.

That’s not a totally inaccurate description. The mixer comes with a 3.5 cup food chopper bowl and a double beater that chops up food (or play dough) that’s placed inside. Your kid can put in stuff like vegetables and then push the gate button toward the top of the bowl to chop the food and then push it down the bowl to mix it. And then he can turn it into a pretend drink-shake by adding some water. Or maybe add some imaginary ice cream to make an extra creamy shake.

The Kindle Paperwhite is a great option for those looking for a new e-reader and feel it wouldn’t make sense to invest in one of the more expensive, yet less impressive, devices on the market right now.

The Paperwhite is strengthened glass. This might make some feel a little less safe using an e-reader, but the Kindle Paperwhite is lightweight as well as tactile and has the ability to feel like a regular book. The texture makes it easy to hold and carry around for readers who often find themselves reading on the go and for long periods of time.

Our rating: 8 / 10

Xbox One S 1TB All-Digital Edition Console

Check Price on Amazon

The Xbox one system is one of the more premium options in the console market due to its numerous features, wide variety of games, and large selection of apps. Equipped with a 500GB hard drive, gamers will have plenty of space to install multiple titles and media files. The Xbox One S also features 4K Ultra Blu-ray playback and can upscale content to 4K so you can take full advantage of your new 4K TV.

A key feature of this Xbox One model is its lack of a disc drive. Gamers will be able to digitally download games through release, and users can also purchase titles through the Xbox Game Pass program, enabling you to play over 100+ games for a relatively low monthly cost.

However, because you don’t have a disc drive, there’s no Blu-Ray player, which is a bummer for movie buffs. Another trade-off is that (currently) you can’t play online with gamers who own the original Xbox One.

While a conventional oven may not be the most economical appliance in your kitchen, some recipes call for that crispy, seared effect you can only achieve with a toaster oven. Plus, unlike a stove or regular oven, this kitchen appliance is energy efficient.

This toaster oven will fit a 9-by-13-inch baking dish. Best of all, it features an adjustable control panel, a blue backlit LCD display and auto shut-off capability that saves you from a power failure or your kitchen’s steaming oven. It has a cool-touch exterior that makes it easy to use and with a countdown timer, you will never over-burn your dinner again.

If you’re on the lookout for a present for your kids this Christmas, then you might want to consider this wonderful microscope from AmScope.

Although it’s called a kids microscope, that doesn’t mean you can’t use it as an adult. It’s a great learning tool for kids as they explore the microscopic world for the very first time. With 52 magnification levels to choose from, it even can be used for other stuff like inspecting small parts.

If you want to clean out the microscope, you’ll find that it comes with a handy dust-collector that you can simply connect to the slide port to suck up the dust.

Amazon’s Fire tablet 10 HD sports a vivid HD display, two Dolby Atmos speakers, Alexa voice assistant, Bluetooth, up to 10 hours of battery life, and 32 GB internal memory.

It provides loads of all-around functionality and great video content, but it’s a no-frills experience as a tablet, like most Amazon Fire models. If you’re a Prime member you’ll have access to a free selection of e-books, magazines, and television shows with the addition of more titles being added every month. You can also access Amazon Music, Prime Video, and much more.

Pros:

  • Great Sound
  • Lightweight Earbuds
  • Long Battery Life
  • Comfortable
  • Compatibility with other Apple devices

When you are buying new headphones, there are a few key features to consider. Personally, I would go for noise canceling headphones as I prefer a quiet environment when I listen to music. Do you take public transportation a lot? If so, you may want to buy a wireless headphone to allow you to listen to music while commuting.

A good thing to look for is a cord that is not too thick, just in case you want to go running, you won’t want to be tripping over a cord while you’re running. There are also plenty of cases out there specifically for earphones and headphones that enhance the audio quality and protect the headphones from damage. Good battery life and sound quality are also often deciding factors when it comes to choosing new headphones.

If you’re shopping for other women in your life, the Revlon One-Step Hair Dryer And Volumizer Hot Air Brush could be the perfect gift for them.

I’ve heard it called the best CHI alternative on the market. It’s a fantastic product that has all the features of a high-quality hair dryer and hair brush in one.

It has two heat settings that you can choose from: high and low (the low heat setting is for styling). There is also a concentrator attachment on the end of the hair dryer that helps to keep it from blowing out the side of your hair (something that I’ve had an issue with).

Pros:

  • Super popular
  • Addictive and fun
  • Kids love it
  • Addition of joy-cons is great

Not only that, but you can play a game anywhere and anytime, it is a very powerful tool for that. The possibilities hitting the button and waiting as the game loader screen waits to load off of the Limited Edition Nintendo Switch Cartridge, is the best feeling you get when you purchase it.

Hydro Flask Standard Mouth Water Bottle

Check Price on Amazon

Pros:

  • Durable water bottles
  • Keep drinks cool in summer and hot in winter

Cons:

  • Not the most aesthetically pleasing design
  • The contour shape can be uncomfortable for some people

The Hydro Flask brand of water bottles are a fan favorite and an Amazon best-seller. If you like the standard mouth design of the Hydro Flask, then you might want to consider the 24 oz Hydro Flask with a flex cap, which I highly recommend.

This Hydro Flask model has a built-in protective spout extension and a secure twist-lid that has a signature Hydro Flask seal.

Requiring no pressing or pushing to open, this cap is easy to use, unlike some other brands that use push-button style caps. The best part is that the flex cap has a locking ring to prevent accidents when taking off the lid.

It combines smart home tech with a traditional-looking speaker for a great overall package. Most importantly, though, you get Alexa for a fraction of the price, which makes the Echo Plus a great option overall.
