Get a Grip: Gift Guide 2017

Good things come in small packages, right? Get a grip on this year’s holiday season with this list of our favorite handheld gifts.

Beats Solo3 Wireless

The perfect pair of city headphones

Once you go wireless, you’ll never go back. The Beats Solo3 Wireless headphones sound great, have a fantastic wireless connection, and the on-ear design is small and snug enough to wear commuting. Looking for tech details? Read why the editors at Wired rate them a 9/10.¬† For long flights and traveling move up to the bigger over-ear Beats Studio3 headphones with noise¬†cancellation.

Todd Snyder + Timex Reissue Collection

Military Watch

Inspired by 1970s military-spec watches and reinvented for everyday civilian wear, the latest collaboration between Todd Snyder and Timex is stylish and affordable. Available now for $138 from Todd Snyder.

Logitech Harmony Elite Remote Control

Get control of your TV

The most powerful universal remote on the market is also a snap to setup. Get control of your devices with this easy to use remote and app. We were surprised at just how easy this was to configure and how intuitive it was to control–including custom settings for our somewhat complicated turntable configuration.

Hydro Flask Stainless Steel Travel Tumbler

Drink with ease

It’s hard to say just how much we hate so many travel mugs–ones with lids you have to hold while drinking, ones that don’t stay hot, ones that spill. The Hydro Flask keeps your drinks hot/cold while not making you look ridiculous while holding it. It’s a well-made cup. Doesn’t get too much more simple than that. The 22oz is a perfect casual commuting size.

Other Ideas

Need more ideas? How about “Monograph” by Chris Ware, a beautiful autobiography of the artists’s comics and New Yorker covers. Have an outdoorsy friend? What about this fun (yet functional) $60 travel hammock? On a budget? What about a super long 10′ iPhone charging cable for under $10? Have that Instagram photographer friend? Get them one of these. Really, really don’t know what to get? What about this Slayer Pentagram Tankard?
