We kicked off this year’s holiday gift guides with our list of must-have family games because, well, we love games and think they provide incredible opportunities for family bonding. But we recognize that life isn’t just about games. We embrace all forms of technology in our lives, snuggle up in bathrobes when we’re sitting around the house, get online (gasp) to play games like Overwatch and consistently keep items on hand for replicating coffee house drinks at home. This list includes a few of those things that we felt deserved a spotlight for holiday shopping. As in previous guides, keep an eye out for our SahmReviews logo and click through to find out more about about the item it is next to.

  1. Wow – so many good things to choose from! The Advent Calendar looks fun. The speakers would be a great addition to the game room. My phone is constantly running out of juice so I would have use for the power bank….shall I go on?

  2. Bamboo Bathrobe! I’m all for things made out of bamboo, and I think we should grow much more and harvest it to replace some wood products. I know it’s an invasive in places, it should be grown where it’s native. 🙂

  3. Awesome gift ideas. I especially like the Indoor/Outdoor Dual Bluetooth Speakers since a lot of my friends like music and we stream shows together sometimes so they’d be great!

  4. Since we’ve made it through the holidays and my resolution for the New Year is to get and stay organized, I really like the Ribbed Baskets! Very pretty colors!
