Dustbuster’s proud history of easy cleaning continues. The latest version cleans small messes from multiple surfaces – pet hair on the couch, a sprinkle of crumbs on the carpet, bits of debris inside the car. The transparent container tells you when it’s full, so you can empty it and continue the cleaning quest. Amazon customer Frank, in a 5-star review titled “Best Handheld Vacuum Ever!”, wrote, “I’ll use this gem until it dies. I love it!”

OK, that’s a personal endorsement: I own these slippers and I really like them. Every year, as the temperatures drop, I frantically pull them out of the closet. I wear them at home, almost continuously, from November to April. They’re softer than a dream on the inside, but the rugged outsole is perfect for running to the mailbox or letting the dog out. Do you know someone who likes to keep their feet warm? They will thank you for this Christmas gift.

Speaking of comfort: a Barefoot Dreams bathrobe is the ultimate in luxury in hygge season. Made of lightweight, super soft polyester, the robe drapes the wearer in cuddly softness. It’s not cheap, but it’ll be worth it for the smiles when your loved one tastes the cozy softness. Pair it with the UGG slippers above and you won’t want to leave the house until spring.

Back up your photos with this compact, easy-to-use storage drive. The Qubii automatically backs up your photos every time you connect to charge your phone or iPad. It also remembers where it left off after each charge, so you don’t end up with duplicates of everything. Also add up to 2 terabytes of storage with a MicroSD card. Brick pictured is compatible with Apple; the Qubii Duo works with Android devices.

You don’t have to be a wine drinker to appreciate this handy picnic set. The insulated tote easily carries two bottles of wine or a few cans of beverage – an adjustable strap lets you throw it over your shoulder and go. The kit also includes napkins – handy for opening champagne – a corkscrew and two plastic wine glasses. There’s also a bottle cap so you can take home what you don’t drink. Very civilized!

Have you ever gotten cozy and comfy and thought, “I’m like a little burrito”? Share that feeling – for real – with a lucky person on your list. This circular blanket is printed with tasty charred spots, just like an edible tortilla, and is large enough to wrap around an adult. Children may end up being more of a taquito. Sure, it’s fun, but we’re trying to have fun this holiday season, aren’t we?

Shake up movie night with a new way to make microwave popcorn. The Micro-Pop cooks fluffy popcorn without wasting disposable popcorn bags – the heat-resistant borosilicate glass can be used again and again. The clever top doubles as a measuring cup and a container for melting butter. The Micro-Pop is also available in seven fun colors and all parts are dishwasher safe.

These stylish 3 liter backpacks are perfect for busy days, leisurely hikes or just for on the go when you have stuff to carry. Each bag is made from repurposed ripstop nylon and sewn together in unique combinations – no two bags are the same. The interior also features mesh compartments so your items are easy to spot at a glance. And if your recipient doesn’t like the fanny pack style, the adjustable strap allows the bag to be worn cross-body or over the shoulder.

Turn off your phone’s alarm clock forever and get back to basics – sort of – with this sleek new alarm clock. The clock slowly glows brighter and brighter, like the sunrise, as your wake-up time approaches. The alarm sound gets progressively louder over time, instead of waking you up with a start. (And of course, the clock also has a snooze button.) Side bonus: the alarm works as a bedside lamp before you fall asleep at night.
