Kid Puzzle Dinner Tray

We've all been told not to play without food as youngsters, but no one ever said anything about the plates and cutlery, did they (maybe I wasn't paying attention)? Whatever the case, this plastic dinner set is meant to teach the little ones some very basic geometry while simultaneously getting them to keep their table setting organized, so we're featuring it in our 2013 Holiday Gift Guide. The rubber padding on the bottom keeps everything in place nicely, minimizing spillage.

You can pick up the Kid Puzzle Dinner Tray now from Amazon for $49.99.

Both devices will support the China Mobile TD-LTE and TD-SCDMA cellular networks. Interested customers can pre-register for a device beginning December 25th.

Georg Jensen Arne Jacobsen 5-piece Steel Cutlery Set

If this matte stainless flatware looks familiar, that's probably because it's what Dave used when chowing down in 2001: A Space Odyssey. That makes it good enough to appear in our 2013 Holiday Gift Guide. It was already a classic by the time that film dropped in 1968. Designed by Arne Jacobsen in 1957, the Georg Jensen set typifies the Danish architect's smooth space-age aesthetic. Now you can get a set of your very own.

You can pick up the Georg Jensen Arne Jacobsen 5-piece Steel Cutlery Set now from Amazon for $95.

Sonos Playbar

Sonos has earned two spots in our 2013 Holiday Gift Guide, because the Playbar is just so fantastic. Soundbars are typically designed to replace your HDTV's anemic speakers. The Sonos Playbar does that, but but also has a much cooler additional function: It integrates with all the rest of the Sonos multiroom audio system lineup (some of which has already appeared in our Holiday Gift Guide!), streaming music from your Mac, PC, smartphone, and subscription online services. Pair it up with a Sonos SUB and a couple of Play:1 units and you've got a bonafide wireless surround sound system.

You can pick up the Sonos Playbar now from Amazon for $699, and they'll even throw in a free Sonos BRIDGE accessory as well.

Xbox One

Don't let the looks of the Microsoft Xbox One, the next entry in our 2013 Holiday Gift Guide fool you--it may like more like a modern DVR than traditional game console, but that's by design. It's packing an 8-core processor and upgraded Kinect sensor which makes it more than just a game console--it's also your living room's entertainment hub. They're hard to find, but if you look hard enough, you can get one. Look even harder, and you can get one of the elusive white Xbox One "I Made This" models!

You can pick up the Microsoft Xbox One now from Amazon for $499--but hurry, they'll likely sell out before the end of the day.
