Amazon Fire Stick

Every year, we American’s spend millions of dollars on cool tech gifts and gadgets to put under the Christmas tree. But, while a lot of popular tech gifts are expensive (iPhones, xBoxes, etc.), you don’t need to break the bank to buy a great gadget gift this year.

It not only delivers the full 4K video experience, but also easily integrates with the Alexa voice assistance and includes a handy remote control for your TV.

Lodge Grill Pan

OK, this is not exactly a tech gadget, since cooking with cast iron dates back to the 19th century, but it is still a fun upgrade for home chefs who haven’t cooked with it previously. Lodge makes a line of affordable cast iron skillets and other cooking paraphernalia to help get you cooking with cast iron.  You can find a standard grill pan for under $30 at various retailers.
