Even for those who use a phone to shoot videos, an action camera is a great gift. Action camcorders can go where a phone cannot go. You can strap them to a helmet, for example, when you’re biking or skiing and get live action shots of your outdoor sports. Consumer Reports recommends the $300 GoPro Hero3.

For movie lovers who want great sound in their living room, testers have the perfect solution: a sound bar. Flat screens don’t always have the best sound; they’re too flat to fit the speakers inside. So the external speaker will give you much better sound for your television. Consumer Reports recommends the Sonos Playbar for $700.

Wireless speakers are a great way to listen to the music on your devices. Consumer Reports recommends the TDK Life on Record, for $150. And for people who want to stream media onto their TV, the Google Chromecast is a flash-drive-sized device. You just plug it into your TV’s HDMI port and you can stream video straight to your TV. And best of all, the Google Chromecast is just $35!

For the little one on your list, the $52 Cloud B Twilight Turtle Tunes T3 turtle is a fun toy and also serves as a night-light as your child drifts off to dreamland.


Complete Ratings and recommendations on all kinds of products, including appliances, cars & trucks, and electronic gear, are available on Consumer Reports’ website.
