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

mophie Juice Pack

mophie “Juice Pack” for the HTC One 
Considering the texting, emailing, Instagramming, Facebooking, Tumblr viewing, picture taking, moviemaking, and tweeting with which our culture is currently obsessed, the life of a smartphone battery isn’t always an easy (or long) one. Exhibit A: The friend whose phone always powers down in the middle of an actual call to make plans. The solution? A portable power pack that charges his phone with the flick of a switch, so you can live out those fun plans together and not have to watch them unfold online.
