Let’s face it, a lot of the
presents we give each other for the holidays are often
just plain junk. Whether it’s the influence
of amped-up commercials or the pressure of buying for a relative you haven’t talked
to in 12 months, some of us throw up our arms in frustration and end up gifting
a $5 pair of check-out lane earbuds or a
singing plastic fish.
But you can break this cycle
and make gifts count for you and your customers. We put together a list of cool
gadgets that are fun and easy to use, have multiple applications, and won’t
break a budget. They can be given separately or grouped as a “smart home
bundle.” And the best part is that they’ll save energy (and money), helping recipients
feel festive all year.
Gift #1: Smart Thermostat
thermostats make managing your home’s temperature easy. Many let you control them
remotely from a mobile device and offers optimal temperature settings based on
your schedule. Some, like the one pictured

Cool Gift #2: Smart
The beauty of this Simply
Conserve® Smart Socket
is that anything you plug into it becomes smart,
too. Use a mobile app to set timers to, for example, power up the holiday
lights, or turn on your inflatable yard decorations. You can also connect it to
Amazon Alexa or the Google Assistant for easy voice control.
Cool Gift #3: Smart
Control the Simply
Conserve A19 Smart Bulb
from anywhere with a mobile
device. You can change brightness or color to accommodate various activities,
whether reading or cooking, group two or three bulbs together in the app to set
up lighting schedules for entire rooms. Another perk, use this light bulb in
any room of your home and you can adjust the color to match the other bulbs in
the room, no need to worry about ordering the right brightness or color.
Cool Gift #4: Advanced
large TVs, multiple speakers, sound bars, DVD players, and video game consoles,
home entertainment systems are typically not super eco-friendly. But plug it
all into this
Conserve 7-Outlet Advanced Power Strip
and even the Lorax might approve. It uses advanced load-sensing
technology to cut off power to connected devices while they’re not in use,
drastically cutting down on wasted energy.
