Welcome to the Hollywood.com 2017 Gift Guide! ‘Tis the season of giving and there’s no better way to show your loved ones how much you care about them than by surprising them with thoughtful presents. Just in case you’re having trouble coming up with gift ideas, here are a few items to help inspire you for the holiday season!
The Echo Dot is a hands-free, voice-controlled device that can perform almost any task that is asked of it and can make life infinitely easier. Use it to play music, make calls, send and receive messages, set alarms, read the news, look up information, and much more. Compatible with a variety of other devices, the Echo Dot can also be used to control lights, fans, TVs, switches, thermostats, garage doors, sprinklers, and locks without ever lifting a finger.
Give the gift of quality Wifi coverage with the Google Wifi System. Compatible with most major internet providers such as Comcast, Time Warner, and Verizon Fios, the Google Wifi System keeps your connection fast with Network Assist Advanced software by always selecting the clearest channel and fastest band for your devices. This particular set comes with three Wifi points, enough to cover homes up to 4,500 sq. ft. A simple app can help set up whomever you gift this to so they can enjoy their holidays without any network trouble.
The Flitt is a fun and easy way to fly a drone AND capture selfie photos/videos at the same time! This little yet well-designed selfie drone contains a 720P HD camera and flies with your iPhone or Android device using their nifty app in the respective app store. You can fly indoors or outdoors, but be careful about wind as it’s only a few ounces and can be overpowered with a small breeze. Get yourself an extra battery (or two) as the estimated flight time is around 7 minutes. That is long enough to get everyone together, fly for a bit, then snap some group pictures and/or video. This holiday season give the gift to someone else or yourself and make a scene wherever you go flying your drone and taking cool shots! Just be sure to check local laws on where you’re allowed to fly and other regulations.
Apple iPhone X
The iPhone X was announced to major fanfare back in September. It became available on November 3rd (later than the duo of iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus), but now wait times are way down as Apple often likes to over-deliver on timing expectations, it seems. While the build-up for this year’s flagship and 10th anniversary edition of iPhone was off the charts, the device does actually manage to deliver on that level of hoopla. Just expect to see it, love it, then forget about it because the beauty truly disappears in everyday use and gets out of the way as you are so much more immersed in whatever you’re doing with your iPhone than any model prior. It’s, in our opinion, quite simply the very best phone on the market today, and ever made.
