Remember the holidays when you were younger? Taking laps around the toy store in wide-eyed wonder and mentally assembling your wish list? There were more games, wind-up gadgets, and remote-control gizmos than one kid could ever hope for. Well, Brookstone is kind of like that for grown-ups, thanks to its travel-sized appliances, tech accessories, and other goodies that aim to make everyday life a lot easier, comfier, and more fun. Here, three Rue associates share what they’d love to unwrap this year.

Brookstone Wish List

The Star Cruiser Remote-Control Indoor Helicopter
“Because there’s no better way to drive my coworkers nuts than having a remote-control helicopter buzzing around them.”
– Arash H., Senior Mobile Product Manager

The Steam Bug Travel Steam Iron
“I’ve always loved anything miniature, and this tiny little iron is the cutest possible travel item to keep all of my stuff wrinkle-free.”
– Emma L., Assistant Stylist

Bar10Der 10-in-1 Bartending Tool
“I can consider myself a professional mixologist once I add this to my collection, right? Bring on the bar cart.”
– Kelly H., Social Media Writer

Our Brookstone Boutique opens Monday, December 16, at 11AM ET.

Cullen Derby Cashmere 1/4-Zip Pullover
Maybe he loves the great outdoors, or just prefers a hoodie and jeans to any other outfit. Whatever the case, he’s the kind of guy who doesn’t always go for style – so it’s up to you to lead the way. Start him off with a comfy cashmere pullover great for layering (especially under a bulky jacket). Once he’s in love with it, there’s only one challenge left: convincing him it does, in fact, need to visit the dry cleaner every now and then.

Knife Block Gift Pick

 

Everedge by Henckels 16-Piece Knife Block Set
There’s an unspoken rule among chefs: If you do the cooking, someone else does the cleaning. This, however, can turn you into a full-time cook if your roommate (or, ahem, your significant other) is totally content washing every dish and cutting board in the kitchen each night. The best way to convince them to put down the sponge and pick up a sauté pan? A set of shiny new knives that dice a tomato and mince garlic like it’s nobody’s business. Just make sure you have a convincing and motivational speech to go along with it.

Our A Gazillion Gifts Boutique is now open.

Goof-Proof Gifting Reason #1: Free returns. For everyone on your gift list. Learn more.
