Aukey 30000mAh Quick Charge 3.0 power bank
You can never have too much battery power to make it through the day. Phone batteries have become much better over the years, but there are likely still times that people could use some more power, and this is a perfect solution to that. Avoid having your friends and family stuck sitting next to a wall, and let them charge from anywhere.
This portable power pack from Aukey has a 30,000mAh capacity and offers a Quick Charge 3.0 output, so you can charge quickly while on the go. Thanks to its huge capacity you should be able to charge your phones and tablets up to 10 times per charge of the pack. It has two USB outputs and charges through Micro-USB or Lightning.

Moto G5 Plus
If you've got a friend or family member that's constantly complaining about their old smartphone and you want to get them an upgrade, there is still time. Better still, you can buy them a slick new phone that's unlocked and set to impress. Want to be the one gift that stands out above the rest? The Moto G5 Plus is the best phone you can buy for under $200.
For that money, you get a really good phone that delivers all-day battery life and a mostly stock Android experience and a decent camera. The build quality is great for the price and despite the Plus in the name, the Moto G5 Plus is much easier to use one-handed with a 5.2-inch IPS LCD screen. Since it's a Motorola, it features convenient features like a double-twist-to-open-camera gesture, so you can capture any moment with a quick flick of the wrist.
Amazon is selling a Prime Exclusive Moto G Plus that includes lock screen offers and ads for just $199 for the 64GB variant with 4GB of RAM.
The Moto G5 Plus is available for one-day shipping as part of this Prime Exclusive deal.
Amazon Echo (2nd Generation)
Amazon was the first company to come out with an AI-powered smart speaker, and in many ways, they still own the space with its line of Echo speakers.
The second generation of the base speaker introduced some distinct design improvements — the new Echo speaker is shorter and designed to be displayed, without compromising on features or sound quality. It's the perfect introduction to Alexa, or will seamlessly connect to any other Amazon Echo speakers your friend or family member might already own. Priced at $99, this is an excellent gift option for any tech lover on your list. Check out our full review of the Amazon Echo and Echo Plus.
The Amazon Echo is available with one-day shipping for U.S. customers with an Amazon Prime subscription.
Fitbit Charge 2
After Christmas comes New Year's, which typically leads to resolutions to get more active. One popular way to work towards your health goals is with a Fitbit on your wrist, and there's no better option than the Fitbit Charge 2.
The Charge 2 is a sleek and functional fitness tracker that not only tracks every step you take during your day, but also offers PurePulse continuous heart rate monitoring which helps to better estimate calorie burned. The Fitbit Charge 2 is the best tracker because it's not too bulky and doesn't try to do too much — you actually appreciate wearing it throughout the day because with call, text, and calendar notifications displayed on the OLED screen.
Available for $129 on Amazon, this is a great gift option for someone who already owns a Fitbit that's been beaten to hell because they wear it all the time. Otherwise, you'll want to make sure a Fitbit is on someone's list because gifted fitness trackers are all too often destined for junk drawers after a few months of use.
The Fitbit Charge 2 is available with one-day shipping for U.S. customers with an Amazon Prime subscription.
Anker Soundcore 2
The Anker Soundcore 2 is a fantastic portable Bluetooth speaker that's easy to use, sounds great, and offers an incredible battery life that you'd expect from a company that built its brand on battery packs.
The Soundcore 2 is a surprisingly powerful speaker given its compact size. Anker claims a 24-hour battery life for this speaker, which I confirmed in my reveiw. It's waterproof and loud, making it a great speaker for camping trips or in the bathroom for shower singers.
Speakers make for great gifts, and there are a ton bunch of great options out there including the UE Boom 2 ($132) and Sonos Play:1 ($149), but you just can't beat the value of the Soundcore 2. At just $40, you can one for your best friend, one for your parents, and get one for yourself. Totally recommended as an impulse buy.
The Anker SoundCore 2 is available with one-day shipping for U.S. customers with an Amazon Prime subscription.

It's universally compatible with all USB-powered devices, so it doesn't matter if you're buying someone with an iPhone (they will need to supply their own cable). Get this for practically anyone on your list for just $15.
The Aukey Quick Charge 3.0 Car Charger is available with one-day shipping for U.S. customers with an Amazon Prime subscription.
