The Amazon Fire TV is incredibly intuitive to use. You'll be able to control it and any speakers or soundbar with an Alexa voice remote. Just say the movie you want to watch or ask about the weather and it does what you command.
$330 at Amazon

Want the power of Alexa linked directly to your 4K Ultra HD entertainment system? This Fire TV has an easy-to-navigate home screen that features all your favorite apps, cable or satellite info, video games and more. Have all your subscriptions — like Netflix, Prime Video and Hulu, just to name a few — all in one place and stream whenever and however you want. More than 22,000 reviewers have given it five stars.

"There really isn't anything bad to say about this TV," one five-star reviewer said. "Great picture, very easy to mount, and the setup was super easy. Since I already had Fire devices, it just transferred all the info to the new TV. The whole process with the update and such took less than 10 minutes. At this price, just great."

It's right there in the name: This bottle has a two-stage integrated filter straw, so wherever you go you'll have clean, healthy water to drink.
$52 at Amazon

This is no ordinary water bottle. It includes the popular Lifestraw water filter, which removes 99% of impurities from the H2O that moves through it. If you have any off-the-beaten-track travels in your future, this might just improve your adventure...or even save your life.

"I bought this to stay at a hotel and visit Michigan homes that had well water," reported one happy hydrator. "The water tasted great through this straw! I recommend it to anyone traveling and in need of a filter. On an airplane, do yourself a favor and blow into the straw before takeoff, so the water pressure doesn’t explode through on you. I didn’t have any trouble with leaks, and I live at altitude. My new favorite water bottle!"

This fitness tracker can monitor your heart rate and blood oxygen levels as well as track your sleeping patterns. It's compatible with iPhone and Android devices and has Alexa built-in.
$40 at Amazon

If you want to improve your physical well-being this year but don't want to shell out big bucks for a fitness tracker, this smartwatch has got your name on it. Made by fan-favorite Tozo, it'll track your distance and steps and provide heart rate and sleep analysis. Available in Black, Matter Black, Rose Gold and Space Gray.

"I was so impressed with an earlier model of the S2 that I decided to treat myself to this newer version for Christmas," reported a five-star fan. "I am not disappointed and will be purchasing another for my 86-year-old father-in-law, who will benefit tremendously from the health, oxygen, and sleep-monitoring features. The battery life is incredibly better than the Apple Watch, and I like the presentation of the Tozo health statistics in the iPhone App."

These USB-rechargeable hand warmers not only keep your paws toasty when it's cold outside, but they also perform as a power bank.

$23 at Amazon

These hand warmers are "Michigander-approved" (that's right — Michigan again!) by one of over 2,000 raving reviewers who knows a little something about staying warm: "Since we live in a place where the air hurts every square inch of our bodies, having these hand warmers on an excessively windy 23-degree day was the only comfort I could have on a Monday as I stood on the playground before school started."

This portable Bluetooth speaker features water-resistant technology...and, today, an irresistible discount.

$23 at Amazon

Thanks to magical Bluetooth, this little guy pumps out music up to 100 feet away from your device. With 10-plus watts of power, this thing is LOUD — so feel free to use it outside when the weather warms up. It's only 10 ounces, so it won't weigh down your tote. And it's splash-proof, too. More than137,000 five-star reviewers swear by its power and durability.

"I bought this speaker almost seven years ago," raved one fan. "I only thought to leave a review when my husband reminded me that this speaker is indestructible. I've dropped it in lakes, in the bath, and on concrete. The Bluetooth connectivity is fast and simple. Battery lasts a surprisingly long time, and the sound quality still holds up. It's great, buy it."

If you have Amazon Prime, you’ll get free shipping, of course. Not yet a member? No problem. You can sign up for your free 30-day trial here. (And by the way, those without Prime still get free shipping on orders of $25 or more.)
