New Sonos Play:5

Yes, Sonos is back in our 2015 Holiday Gift Guide, and for good reason. That reason is the absolutely incredible redesigned Sonos PLAY:5. The Sonos PLAY:5 houses six high-quality digital amps individually paired with six speakers to deliver fantastic sound in any room, and it does it with clarity and no distortion. This means that every voice and instrument shines through in detail, even when turned up to the max. You really can’t go wrong with any Sonos products, but the Sonos PLAY:5 is the new kid on the block getting all the attention, which it deserves. As soon as I opened it up and started playing music through it, the quality and attention to detail was apparent. This is a real home run from Sonos, and would be the perfect gift for any music lover.

You can pick up the Sonos PLAY:5 now. It also goes nicely with the other Sonos components:

You can use a pair of Play:1, Play:3, or Play:5 units to create a wide stereo pair as well!

TiVo Bolt

TiVo has been around for a long time, and in an attempt to appeal to a wider audience, it’s released the TiVo Bolt - going from just DVR to Unified Entertainment System--and it's good enough to be included in our 2015 Holiday Gift Guide. The standout feature is SkipMode, which allows you to skip commercials when watching your favorite shows with the press of a single button. QuickMode is also cool, playing shows at 1.3x speed with pitch correction, so you can get through those binge-watching sessions even quicker. It’s 4K-compatible, and supports a bunch of streaming video services (although Amazon Prime Instant Video seems to be absent for some odd reason.) TiVo still sports the best DVR interface in the business, and the Bolt includes one year of TiVo service with purchase.

You can pick up the 500GB TiVo Bolt now (or if you need more space, grab the 1TB TiVo Bolt!)

Exploding Kittens

Here’s an inexpensive gift you can give to just about anyone while having it be a success, which is why we are including it in our 2015 Holiday Gift Guide. Exploding Kittens describes itself as a "game for people who are into kittens and explosions and laser beams and sometimes goats.” It’s a family-friendly party game for 2-5 players (or you can combine it with another deck for up to 9 players - and it has a NSFW edition as well!) If you’re still unsure of how well it might go over, just know that it is the most-backed project in Kickstarter history, and only costs $20.

You can pick up Exploding Kittens now (and don't forget Exploding Kittens NSFW version if that's more your thing!)

Apple TV

iOS devices like the iPhone, iPad, and iPod touch will be big holiday gifts this year, make no mistake about it. The Apple TV is actually a fantastic complement to Apple's handhelds, worthy of being featured in our 2015 Holiday Gift Guide. Having recently been completely revamped for the release of the fourth generation model, the new Apple TV is a nice little device in its own right. At the center of it all is the App Store, which now lets you download TV-optimized apps and games, all playable using the new Siri Remote, as well as favorites like Netflix, Hulu, YouTube, sports networks, and plenty of other entertainment options. The best part, though, is AirPlay. You can beam audio and video content right to the Apple TV with ease from your iOS device, or your Mac. You can also mirror the display of these devices as well, all wireless over your home network.

You can pick up the Apple TV for $149 for the 32GB model, or $199 for the 64GB version.
