With the holidays right around the corner, we at BIGfish wanted to share what’s on our own holiday wish list and recommend unique gifts for everyone in your family!
For the techie: Ring Video Doorbell ($199)
If you know a homeowner who’s always on the go or who simply wants to add a layer of protection to their home, this will make the perfect gift! The Ring Video Doorbell, a product from BIGfish client Ring, is a Wi-Fi-connected video doorbell with two-way audio and one-way video that enables you to monitor and protect your home, whether you’re home or away. With Ring’s motion sensing technology, you’re alerted when there’s movement on your property or when someone presses the doorbell. Most burglars knock or ring the doorbell to make sure no one is home before breaking in; with Ring, you can deter potential burglars by giving them the impression you’re home even when you’re not. Pro tip: if you do a lot of your holiday shopping online, gift a Ring Video Doorbell to yourself so you can keep an eye on those deliveries and protect them from porch pirates. With more than 15 billion pieces of holiday mail and packages delivered in 2015 and almost 97,000 complaints about stolen mail submitted to USPS in 2015, protecting your packages is even more important. With Ring you can tell the delivery person to drop the package at the side door (then keep an eye on them with theRing Stick Up Cam) and prevent the packages from being stolen from your doorstep by telling thieves to scram.
For the fitness guru: Fitbit Charge 2 ($149.95)
Whether you’re buying for a fitness guru or someone who needs motivation to work off all the pumpkin pie they ate this Thanksgiving, Fitbit’s new Charge 2 makes a great gift. It comes in three sizes, six fashionable colors and features a large touchscreen display. This new Fitbit offers everything you need to live a healthier life. New features include the ability to record daily workouts, set fitness goals and track sleeping habits, plus, users receive notifications about incoming calls, texts, calendar events and more.
For the wanderlust: Create your Own Trip to Iceland (Starting at $595* per person)
Looking for the perfect gift for the wanderlust person on your list? Look no further than to Icelandair’s build-your-own-trip package. We may be biased because Iceland Naturally is a BIGfish client, but many travel experts call Iceland a must-see destination. So, give a loved one the chance to see the country’s unparalleled beauty for themselves! This Iceland travel package allows individuals to explore the country at their own leisure with the option to tailor accommodations and excursions to their own liking, making it one of the most flexible and affordable ways to see the country of fire and ice!
For the college student: MacBook Pro (13-inch starting at $1,499)
The MacBook Pro is the perfect gift for any college student! The latest edition launched in October and has been redesigned with more features including 10 hours of battery life, 25% more color and a 67% brighter screen than previous model. The new MacBook Pro comes in space gray and silver and is the thinnest and lightest MacBook yet! But there’s even more: this addition includes a touch bar for quick access to tools right at the user’s fingertips, meaning increased productivity. Pro tip: Let Apple employees know you’re purchasing the MacBook for your college student, and they will provide you with a student discount.
For the teen: Beats Solo 3 Wireless Headphones ($299.95)
Shopping for the teen on your list is always tough! Do yourself a favor and skip the gift card this year – instead, surprise them with Beats Headphones. Although these wireless headphones come at a steep price, they will take them through college and beyond. Available in eight colors and clocking in at up to 40 hours of battery life, these headphones are perfect for everyday use, whether they’re rocking out on the bus ride home from school or at the gym.

Let dad unwind and catch up on his favorite shows or get mom hooked on a new one by selecting from one of three Netflix packages. Note: all packages include the first month free and allow access from a television, computer or smartphone!
For the family pet:Petnet SmartFeeder ($149)
We can’t forget the four-legged members of the family! BIGfish client Petnet offers a SmartFeeder, which serves as an automatic, connected pet feeder that enables pet parents to create a customized feeding schedule for their dog or cat. Taking into account your pet’s age, weight, breed and activity level, the SmartFeeder ensures your pet is staying healthy and happy all year long.
