Great Gifts for the Google lover in your life

I admit it, I’m completely addicted to Google devices.  My home is the quintessential Google Ecosystem, and it all works so well together and makes my life easier and more entertaining as a result.  So when I think about gifts that can make the lives of my loved ones easier, better and more fun, I think of Google.  With devices that simplify and enhance day to day life at home and away, in a range of price points, Google has it all for holiday giving.


For the entertainer in your life

Is there someone in your life who is always hosting everyone, around the holidays and all year round?  A consummate entertainer needs a great soundtrack for every party, from the prep to last person standing.  Give the gift of great music with the Nest Audio.  The Nest Audio is a smart speaker that delivers full, clear and natural sound.  A single Nest Audio device can fill a room with music for a party, or read out instructions for prepping the perfect meal for guests, or reminding folks when it’s time to move onto the next party, using the various Google connected programs and sound forward construction.  Available in multiple colours, the Nest Audio designed to fit beautifully into your home, crafted from post consumer recycled plastic and blending in while standing out.  I’m particularly obsessed with the Sand colour myself.

MSRP: $129.99

Is there someone you love who always has their phone out, capturing every meal, every moment and every memory for posterity?
