BEST TECH THAT WON’T BREAK THE BANK

PhoneSoap 3 ($59.95) Not to freak you out, but re­cent stud­ies have dis­cov­ered that most cell­phones are cov­ered with ten times more bac­te­ria than the av­er­age toi­let seat; in­clud­ing path­o­genic or­gan­isms like E. coli, Strep­to­coc­cus, and even MRSA. Now your iPhone and Ap­ple Watch can charge while get­ting rid of 99.9 per­cent of these mi­croor­gan­isms with the san­i­tiz­ing power of UV light. Med­i­cal pro­fes­sion­als, care­givers, and any­one con­cerned about re­duc­ing the risk of dis­ease trans­mis­sion in day-to-day life will love this prod­uct.

DrinKup Wa­ter Bot­tle ($69) A sturdy stain­less-steel wa­ter bot­tle is a gift that elim­i­nates the ex­pense and waste of buy­ing count­less plas­tic wa­ter bot­tles. This smart bot­tle's LED lid and ded­i­cated iPhone app dis­plays your hy­dra­tion level and re­minds you to keep sip­ping to stay on track, while also read­ing the tem­per­a­ture of the drink in­side. Our editor in chief Donna has been test­ing this beau­ti­fully built 17-ounce ves­sel for months and has no­ticed an in­creased aware­ness and im­prove­ment of her hy­dra­tion lev­els.

Rerii Por­ta­ble AM/FM Ra­dio & Blue­tooth Speaker ($59.99) Made of hand-carved wal­nut and fea­tur­ing a warm, yel­low glow on the AM/FM dial, this speaker looks like a well-pre­served an­tique from the 1930s. In ad­di­tion to the charm­ing aes­thetic, the Rerii of­fers easy con­nec­tiv­ity and im­pres­sively clear, loud sound. The one quirk is that if you don't un­pair when you're fin­ished lis­ten­ing, no other de­vices can con­nect, even if you've left the premises.

Tile Blue­tooth Tracker Pro Series (1 pack $25)

We all know at least one per­son who is con­tin­u­ally mis­plac­ing their keys, back­pack, or wal­let. Now, all they'll need to do is set up the Tile app on their iPhone and at­tach a 1.5-inch square Tile Sport or Tile Style to their most com­monly lost things. If that item is lost, the app can trig­ger an alarm. What if it's a phone that's lost? Just dou­ble tap any Tile that's con­nected to the miss­ing phone, and it will ring, even if it's on silent. This rugged, durable, wa­ter­proof present is so handy you might want to gift a few to your­self!

Moshi Dig­its Touch­screen

Gloves ($29.95) Tak­ing your gloves off every time you need to use your phone just adds to the strug­gle that is win­ter. Moshi solves this prob­lem with its thick, cozy touch­screen gloves; they keep your hands toasty warm while al­low­ing all ten dig­its to in­ter­act ac­cu­rately with your touch­screen. As an added bonus, the palms are cov­ered with a tex­tured grip to keep your iPhone from slip­ping from your hands. These tend to run small; or­der the L/XL size un­less the per­son you're buy­ing for is ex­tremely pe­tite!
