Amazon’s Echo Show 15 is a 15.6-inch FHD smart display that features all the controls you’d normally expect from an Amazon smart hub, with a 5-megapixel camera, two 1.6-inch speakers, several widgets and Visual ID personalization.

    It can be mounted on a wall, making it a great hub for a family that wants to share a single Echo device, leave notes for each other, make common shopping lists, control other smart gadgets, and stay connected with each other.

  • AirTag

    Apple’s loonie-sized Bluetooth tracker, the AirTag, takes advantage of its vast 'Find My' network to locate whatever it's attached to. It would make a great gift for forgetful mums who can slide the AirTag into their purses or handbags.

    The tiny tracker features a built-in speaker that emits a noise when you sync it with your iPhone or when you try to locate it. It uses a standard CR2032 watch battery, so when the battery runs out (Apple says the battery is good for a year), you simply rotate its stainless steel back and add a new battery. Additionally, if you buy the AirTags from Apple directly, you can get an emoji, symbol or number on the white front of the tracker for absolutely free. You can buy the AirTag in a 4-pack or a 1-pack for $39 and $129, respectively.
