It’s that time of the year again! Time to start holiday shopping, and we have many gifts perfect for all of your friends and family members. We have collected a list of our top products of the year to help you pick out the latest technology-driven gifts. Please see below our highlights across entertainment, fashion, food, health and wellness, and toys.
Many of these products have been used by the team here at Top Tier, so if you have any questions relating to a product or service, please do not hesitate to ask!
Technology has transformed the way we capture and consume entertainment. Roku is a budget-friendly set-top box streaming TV and media (including Amazon prime video, not available on the Apple TV) in 4k for ultra HD TVs. The Avegant Glyph is an immersive video headset that uses light field technology to create a mixed reality space for viewers as well as an immersive entertainment system for streaming and gaming. The Essential Phone was created by Andy Rubin, the founder of Android. The phone has accessories that can connect to the phone magnetically, including a 360 degree personal camera, keeping the phone cord-free.
Many companies have put an emphasis on the comfort and customization of our clothing and the consumer shopping experience. Allbirds uses New Zealand’s superfine merino wool to create comfortable and light shoes. If you already own a pair, check out Smallbirds for the kids. Boon + Gable created a new way to shop for clothes, sending a stylist to your home with many items for you to try on, get advice, and buy. Rep the Squad is a subscription-based club that allows fans to rent professional sports jerseys. The company has a selection of classic throwbacks, alternate jerseys, or simply the jersey of your favorite player.
Healthy foods have taken over as people are becoming aware of the impact that food has on their bodies and lifestyles. Impossible Foods created a burger made entirely from plants for people who love the taste of a real hamburger without the meat. According to Impossible, their burger uses 95% less land, 74% less water, and creates 87% less greenhouse gas emissions than ground beef from cows. Daily Harvest delivers pre-portioned cups of frozen superfoods for smoothies, soups, and more. Why frozen? Freezing fruits and vegetables within hours of being harvested retains nutrients and locks in freshness. Looking for a frozen treat in the dessert category? Check out Wim, a single serve frozen yogurt machine for the home.
We have seen several health and wellness products and companies pop up in the last year covering everything from exercise to personal care. Peloton is an exercise bike with indoor cycling classes with live and on-demand classes, allowing you to experience the energy of a live cycling class in the comfort of your own home. The Peloton leader boards help gamify the workouts and allow users to compete with friends. Founded by Warby Parker veterans, Harry’s sells well designed German engineered razors, shaving cream, and face wash online for a fair price. Care/of is a subscription package of daily vitamin packs personalized for your needs based on your lifestyle and personal health goals.
This year we have toys not only for your kids, but also your pets. BarkBox is a subscription service for dog toys, treats, and goodies delivered monthly. Each month is uniquely themed and comes with at least 2 toys, 2 all-natural bags of treats, and a chew. The BarkShop provides a store with many of the items typically provided in the monthly box for purchase a la carte. Tenka Labs takes LEGO-like toys into a new age using their Circuit Cubes. Circuit Cubes are electronic building blocks that add sound, motion, light, and sensors to LEGO-style bricks, vintage toys, or pool noodles to bring these toys to life. Shifu provides card kits that interact with a smartphone app to provide augmented reality based educational games for kids.
