Even once you have all your primary gifts sorted, it’s always nice to pick up some additional stocking stuffers to keep the smiles coming this holiday season. With that in mind, we picked a bunch of great gadgets from Amazon that your loved ones will find both fun and actually useful. From a cool electronic wine opener to the extremely handy new Apple AirTags location finding devices, there’s a little something (literally) for everyone.
I love nightstand mode on the Apple Watch, and even with sleep tracking coming this fall, I still love a good stand for it. This Elago W3 stand looks like the original Macintosh computer, and the Apple Watch makes for a perfect screen. It’s a durable rubber material and weighted quite nicely, and the Apple Watch fits in snugly. — Jacob Krol, tech and electronics editor
The Slice is a simple but extremely useful game changer for opening packages and crafting projects. Its tiny little blade is safe to the touch but effortlessly glides through packaging tape, making opening boxes a seamless, hassle-free experience. It really comes in handy when you need to open a ton of boxes at once.
For the egg lovers out there, there’s no easier way to scramble, hard boil, soft boil or poach eggs than with this Dash egg cooker. It has an auto shutoff function, so your eggs will never overcook and you won’t have to babysit them if you’re short on time. Whether it’s for a quick breakfast or a protein-packed snack, cooking eggs has never been this over easy.
When it comes to sponge holders, always opt for a metal wire caddy over plastic and/or cubbyhole-style models. An open-air caddy will allow sponges to dry faster and more thoroughly when not in use, which will keep them from developing a mildew smell, and metal is less prone to develop mold growth on the caddy itself.
Seemingly every time we cook, there’s always the question of “Where should I actually place my lids and cooking utensils so they’re not in a giant, messy pile?” Simplify your life with this stand that conveniently holds your tools (or even a cookbook) to free up counter space and avoid unnecessary mess.
