Between work, travel engagements, holiday party planning and seemingly endless gift shopping, this year’s holidays have been nothing short of a whirlwind. While our team is gearing up to indulge in the luxury of a few lazy mornings over the holiday break, we couldn’t sign off without giving our readers one final surprise for the season. We’ve partnered with AT&T’s #HappyHappening campaign for an amazing tech giveaway: the perfect opportunity to win an extra special gift for someone in your life—or for yourself! We did some in-depth perusing of AT&T’s holiday gift guide and selected three of the tech gadgets we’re most excited about this year. Choose one of your favorites for a chance to win below!
THE GIFTS WE’RE GIVING AWAY:
1. For the Sound Stylist: UE BOOM 2 Wireless Bluetooth Speaker
This was the gift we gave ourselves this year, since we can’t go more than five minutes without having music playing in the office while we work. The extra special part about this particular bluetooth speaker ($199) is that you can take it anywhere—and we mean anywhere. It can get wet, snowy, muddy, accidentally doused in coffee/wine (has that only ever happened to us?) or just generally tossed around without any harm done—a huge relief since we’re constantly schlepping things to various locations for photoshoots.
2. For the Adventurer: Samsung Gear VR
If there’s an adventurer in your life that just can’t sit still (or maybe that’s you!) then look no further than these Samsung Virtual Reality Goggles ($99). They basically allow you to transport yourself to any scenario: outer space, underwater, an exotic, faraway locale…all without actually using your vacation days or putting a dent in your bank account. It’s also an amazing way to experience sold-out concerts or your favorite Netflix TV shows and movies—and the best part is that all you need to make it work is your Samsung phone. No wires or complicated setup required! Personally, we like to keep one at our desks for a little mini-break during the day. Who wouldn’t want to virtually transport themselves to Tahiti when Chibera is outside their door?
3. For the Fun One in the Family: Parrot Mambo Mini Drone
When we started reading about the Parrot Mambo Mini Drone ($99), our ears immediately perked up. Our team has seen drones used on various photoshoots and special occasions, and there’s something about it that just brings out the little kid in us again. This one is designed purely for fun and is super easy to use, so you don’t have to live in fear of getting it stuck in a tree or causing some type of major collision. Our favorite functionality is the Transporter claw, which you can use to deliver surprises or notes to your friends, family, or colleagues in an unexpected and playful way. Basically, it makes us feel like we have our very own Hedwig, so you can see why we’re a little obsessed.
