One of Google's newest products is the Google Home Hub. The Hub is similar to the previous Google Assistant speakers, but it's been reinvented to feature an interactive screen.

Let's be real. This is gonna be a massive help in the kitchen.

When it comes to keeping track of your belongings, your techie in mind may be extremely forgetful. If that's the case, then the tile mate is a great gift that won't break your budget. They come in different sizes and qualities based on which items you're trying to keep track of. There's the tile mate, slim, and pro. The slim is tailored for wallets, laptops, tablets, and notebooks. The pro is just an upgraded version of the regular mate, but with a louder speaker and longer range.

Tech lovers and average joes alike, everyone needs a Nintendo Switch. It'll cost around $299 this year, but it's worth every cent. It's essentially the love baby of the Wii and the DS. It allows you to play on the bus, in the living room, or wherever you may find yourself. It's the first Nintendo console to be considered both a family console and a personal console.

4. Google Home or Google Home Mini - $29.99 - $129

The differences between the two Google Homes are mostly just size, sound quality, and of course, price. The Google Home is more suitable for a large space like the kitchen or living room, while the smaller Google Home Mini works well in the bedroom. However, both are extremely useful no matter where they're used. They're able to make calendar events for you, play music, and anything else the Google Assistant is able to do.

5. Cord Taco - $16

I doubt I'm the first person to get annoyed with a jumbled up pair of headphones or phone charger. As funny as the name is, the Cord Taco is an incredibly affordable and useful tech-related gift that solves an issue we all come to face every day.

6. Nintendo Switch Accessories - $10 - $80

Where To Find The Best Coffee Drinks In America, According To A Survey

Here's the coffee shop where you should get your morning brew.


Coffee, for billions of people, is one of the only things that can get us out of bed (after hitting snooze a time or two), especially in 2020. Because, if we're being honest, is there anything that beats a quality cup of coffee on those mornings when all we wanted to do is roll over and go back to sleep? The answer is no. And if you're headed to a coffee shop to pick up your caffeinated beverage, you don't want to sleep on the best coffee drinks in America.

According to LiveShopper Sassie's Coffee Project survey, when it comes to chain coffee shops, there are definitely preferred spots you'll want to hit up for your go-to order — whether you order the classic, frozen, or flavored coffee, an espresso, tea, or other. To figure out the hot spots, 1,000 coffee drinkers across the United States took to LiveShopper's mobile app, PrestoShopper, to answer various questions about their coffee drinking habits and preferences. In return, these survey respondents got money back for their coffee — something any user who downloads the app can do as well (yes, even you).

The Best Bagel Recipes For Every Personality Type, In Case You Need Another Excuse To Eat Carbs

I'll approve of pasta for breakfast any day, but this is more socially acceptable.


I've had times in my life at which I've told myself I need to cut out carbs. Those moments last about a minute or two before I start daydreaming about rice and pasta.

Bagels hold a special place in my heart — for many of my college friends and me, a bagel sandwich was the go-to breakfast after a long night of drinking. Years later, I still love to indulge in the occasional carb-filled breakfast. As much as I love putting in an UberEats order from bed, nothing beats the feeling of pulling some fresh-baked bread or pastries out of the oven.

How Much Of A Coffee Snob You Are, Based On Where You Live

Your state may determine how picky you are about your coffee.


When it comes to coffee, everyone has different criteria for what goes into their "perfect cup." Some caffeine lovers, though, are extra particular when it comes to their beloved beverage.
