Just make sure that your Santa has deep pockets because the price tag of the best noise-cancelling headphones in the world is pretty high.
Google Pixel Smartphone
Google has made a new smartphone. Unlike the company’s other devices, such as the Nexus 6 and Nexus 6P, the new smartphone is designed and manufactured entirely by Google. They call it Pixel. Its sleek design, high-end specifications, and even price make it compete directly with iPhone.
But unlike the latest iPhone, which has removed the 3.5mm audio jack in favor of a slightly thinner design, Google has gone the other way and packed the Pixel with unlimited cloud storage space, AI-powered personal assistant, and the highest rated smartphone camera, according to DxOMark.
Anker PowerCore 20100 Power Bank
Not everyone needs a new smartphone, but we all need a way how to charge our smartphone’s battery. The Anker PowerCore 20100 power bank has enough capacity to charge the iPhone 6 seven times, the Galaxy S6 five times, and the iPad Mini 4 twice. That’s because it implements Anker’s own PowerIQ and VoltageBoost technology as well as a range of safety mechanisms which make the charging process safe and help to extend the lifespan of your electronic devices.
CM Storm QuickFire Rapid Mechanical Keyboard
There’s a good reason why mechanical keyboards are all the rage right now. They deliver superior tactile feedback, making gaming more enjoyable and typing more accurate. The CM Storm QuickFire sports a compact design, giving your mouse more room to roam on your desk. The keyboard comes with Cherry MX switches, which are considered to be the best mechanical switches on the market. The blue version of the switch has a distinct clicky feel to it, the red is light and responsive, and the brown is a happy medium.

If you already don’t own an eBook reader, now is the perfect time to get one. Amazon has just released the latest version of their basic Kindle, making it thinner and lighter.
