It’s been a while since I last came up with a Top 5 list for gadgets to give at Christmas, but Mark Starling at First News 570 challenged me last week with selecting a single “it” gift to give for this Christmas. Well, it’s 4 days until Christmas, and today I’m sharing with you 5 last minute gadget gifts you can run out and pick up today.
Right now, you can head out to your local Home Depot and pick up the Philips Hue. Hue is a lighting kit that is app and remote controlled. Using Hue, you can dim and brighten your lights, change the ‘hue’, and color depth up to 16.7 million colors with the flick of your thumb on your Android or iOS device. The lighting system includes bulbs that pair with a controller or stand alone single light units adjustable with a small remote. I bought Hue for one of my cousins a few years ago and its easy to be mesmerized by the light. Pair Hue with the Amazon Dot and you have the perfect setup for getting your favorite elf in the mood this Christmas Eve. The starter kit is relatively inexpensive at $179 and can be picked up at Home Depot or other supply stores.
