Gift giving used to be so simple. A pair of socks for Dad, perfume for Mom. But this is 2022, and people of every generation are tuning into the lifestyle benefits of high technology.

No longer the sole domain of geeks and nerds, cool tech toys are showing up everywhere to help make our life easier. Here are our picks for the top gifts of 2022.

Verefa V60 Pro Robot Vacuum

This amazing self-emptying Robot Vacuum is giving homeowners their lives back. It’s a powerful automated assistant that vacuums all floor types including carpet, with the most powerful suction for low- to mid-pile carpets.

The V60 Pro is especially great with pet hair. It’s funny, because these robot vacuums quickly get treated like a part of the family, people even give names to their “pet” robot vacuum.

The V60 completely takes care of vacuuming, finding its way around your floor, detecting, and avoiding obstacles, handling carpets, pet hair and slopes like a champion, and taking itself back to base for a recharge when needed. All you need to do is empty the disposable dust bag once every two months or so. Simple and clean.

Yarbo Mower, Leaf Blower and Snowplow

If you think a robot vacuum is cool, you should see a Yarbo in action. Yarbo made the world’s first multi-purpose yard robot, an all-terrain autonomous robot with different attachments for lawn mowing, leaf blowing and plowing snow.

Yarbo uses sophisticated technology to automatically detect and avoid obstacles, so you don’t need to mow the lawn before Yarbo mows the lawn! It can find its own way around your yard, including around objects, and up slopes (up to 68 degrees).

Vankyo Leisure 495W LED Projector

Moving back indoors, we have the Vankyo Leisure 495W projector. I say “indoors” but there’s no reason you couldn’t project this onto an outside wall, the light is very powerful. (As long as the neighbors are okay with it!) The 495W can mount on the ceiling or a tripod, or simply sit on a table. The 1080P picture is clear and sharp, and – surprisingly for a projector – the built-in speaker provides theater-quality clear, loud sound in pure Dolby.

Angry Miao R3 Cyberboard

We all work on a computer every day, so why not make it fun? Angry Miao has created the high-end R3 Cyberboard, a mechanical keyboard that feels great and looks greater, with a funky programmable LCD screen.

If you’re Gen X or older, you’ll remember the way sci-fi used to imagine our computerized future – big banks of flashing lights. They had no way of knowing how small our tech would become, but treasures like the Cyberboard let us feel that geeky glow that comes from using physical keys and seeing bright nerdy lights.

The R3 is inspired by film director Wes Anderson, known for his colorful palettes and arresting art direction.

Don’t give socks this year. Let 2022 be the year you introduce friends and family to the best, whether it’s a robot vacuum or a keyboard that will evoke retro memories. It’s time to shop the best and create new memories with the ones we love!
