If you’re not a tech person, it can be hard to keep up with the hottest new gadgets. (It’s hard even when you are a tech person, but I do my best.)
While popular options like Apple Gift Cards are never going to sell out, plenty of the other items will — especially when you consider the supply-chain issues driving people to shop earlier this year, and not to mention being on a small island with sometimes slow arrival times.
I’ve assembled the following list of gifts that we feel will be hot this year.
The nearly invisible home gym – The Mirror
When it’s off, it’s a mirror. When it’s on, it’s the world’s first interactive smart gym with you at the center.
From small-spaced dwellers to tech junkies, the Mirror workout device is a sleek and engaging way to get that heart rate going. From streaming live and on-demand workout classes to connecting to your Apple Watch to gather your exercise stats, this obstructive but mighty piece of technology is a gift that keeps on giving.
August Wi-Fi Smart Lock
August Smart Lock fits on the inside of your door, making your regular deadbolt smarter, more secure and way more convenient from the simplicity of an app!
Keep your keys just in case (but you won’t need them).

Advanced All-In-One Virtual Reality Headset – Oculus Quest 2
Think Quest 2 is just for gaming? You’d be mistaken. Quest 2 makes it possible to sit front row at a live concert, burn calories atop a glacier, hang out with friends all over the world, work, watch a movie and yes, even play a game.

A Water Bottle that GLOWS when to drink water!
There’s a fitness tracking device for nearly every need, so why wouldn’t there be one for hydration levels? And besides, who doesn’t need a little reminder every once and a hile about taking a sip of H2O? This bottle GLOWS when it’s time to drink more water, at specific intervals.
Think of this as the easiest way to up your quality of life.

A Voice-Activated Trash Can
There’s no risk of reaching into a messy trash can when you can lift the lid with your voice. Say “open can” or wave your hand over the top of this one and the lifts softly and smoothly. It also includes a liner pocket that dispenses liners one-by-one from inside the can.
The skylight Calendar
This sleek digital calendar/photo frame lets you and your family sync all of your calendars in one convenient place, plus manage grocery lists, to-dos, and all of the essentials to keep your household running smoothly.
The toothbrush for those who demand superior care
Optimize your oral care with the Philips Sonicare DiamondClean Smart 9500. The device syncs with your phone to give you a better look at where you need to be a little more thorough-or use a lighter touch.
With multiple cleaning settings (including one for your tongue), this toothbrush truly does it all.
