Holiday Gift Guide for Adults 2017


HP Amp 100 Printer

Having accessibility to a printer is a necessity in my household. I am printing something daily. I print my college assignments, the kids’ home school worksheets, resources for my blog, chore and grocery lists, and even photos of the grand kids. HP is a brand my whole family trusts. It’s dependable, cost-efficient, and easy enough for my kids to use on their own. We currently have two HP laptops, the HP Envy 7640 Printer, and now the new HP AMP 100 printer. This would be the perfect gift for your college student. You can purchase this printer at


HP Instant Ink Program

You can’t have a printer without having ink. I recommend you enroll in the HP Instant Ink program. This convenient program will automatically re-order ink for you when your printer is getting close to running out. So you will never need to worry about running out of ink again or running to the office supply store! You can upgrade, downgrade or cancel your enrollment at any time.

The PogoCamHD is sure to please travelers this holiday season. PogoCam is a mini but mighty camera that attaches magnetically to the glasses you already own so you can keep your signature style. Unlike other camera gear and wearable glasses available these days, this is the world’s smallest and lightest camera, attachable to virtually all glasses. Unlike existing similar offerings, this won’t make users look geeky nor raise privacy concerns because it is easily removable. The small and light camera won’t get in your way as you record memories — so you can still stay in the moment. Images are easy to transfer and can be shared across all social sites. PogoCam is smaller than a tube of lip balm and holds 100 photos or six 30-second videos before transferring to the smart case. Purchase online at
