The WIRED Reviews team spends all year testing out the latest fleet of gadgets. We ride ebikes, break a sweat with workout headphones, and drink a lot of coffee to help you decide how to spend your money.
Every year, a handful of those gizmos stand out to us. They strike us as things that would make excellent gifts—not only because they’re particularly innovative or supremely well-designed (though those might be true). We choose them because there’s something about them that’s just delightful to use. And in another year that’s perhaps left us more frayed at the edges than we’d like, a joyful gift goes far. We hope our Wish List helps you find the perfect one.
