For the Techie: Amazon Echo Dot

While Amazon tends to deliver great deals on all their Echo devices around the holidays, the Echo Dot is still our go-to gift option. This compact little voice assistant can tell you the weather, read the news, play music, and more, yet it’s still small enough to fit on your nightstand. It’s also a little less intimidating than other options for techie-wannabes who may be meeting Alexa for the first time.
