BEATS POP COL­LEC­TION POWERBEATS3 go.mac­world.com/pwr3

If your par­ents love pop­u­lar mu­sic—from their era or from to­day—they’ll en­joy the sound qual­ity from these Powerbeats3 ear­phones. These ear­phones use Ap­ple’s W1 pro­ces­sor that al­lows for in­stant pair­ing with an iphone. If mom or dad is more into cans, take a look at the Beats Solo3. And I have to men­tion that we love Ap­ple’s Airpods—they will, too.

BELKIN VALET CHARGER go.mac­world.com/bvc

Your folks will love this por­ta­ble bat­tery be­cause it can charge their iphone and Ap­ple Watch at the same time. The Valet Charger is a 6,700 mah bat­tery, car­ry­ing enough juice to charge the Ap­ple Watch eight times, or a reg­u­lar-sized iphone three times. And it’s small enough to pocket or put in a purse, back­pack, or brief­case.

JOBY GRIPTIGHT PRO TELEPOD go.mac­world.com/jgt

This tele­scop­ing tri­pod can be used to hold an iphone steady while shoot­ing video, or it can have its legs ex­tended so it can stand on a flat sur­face. It also has a Blue­tooth re­mote con­trol so you can trig­ger the iphone’s cam­era shut­ter from a short dis­tance.

MEATER go.mac­world.com/meat

It’s sum­mer, and that usu­ally means that moms and dads all across this land are spend­ing time show­ing off their culi­nary skills over a hot grill. The Meater wire­less meat ther­mome­ter can help pops grill that steak, chicken, or pork loin to per­fec­tion. It works with an iphone at that helps mon­i­tor the tem­per­a­ture of the meat.

SANDISK IXPAND BASE go.mac­world.com/sib

Let’s get this out of the way: The ixpand Base is not a wire­less charger, even though it looks like one. It charges your iphone the old-fash­ioned way, through a Light­ning con­nec­tion. The de­vice also per­forms au­to­matic back­ups of an iphone’s pho­tos, videos, and con­tacts, handy if mom or dad is trav­el­ling or even for ev­ery­day use.

SYMA X5C go.mac­world.com/x5c

This drone is a lot more af­ford­able ($25) than other drones out there. And with its con­trol­ling dis­tance of 30 me­ters, a fly­ing time of about 7 min­utes, and a 720p video cam­era, you can eas­ily find drones that can do more. But if your folks have lit­tle or no ex­pe­ri­ence, this is a good way to start-and a good way to hook them in.
