Kim’s essential tech picks: 15 gifts your family and friends will love

I like to give gifts that solve problems. Something that the person didn’t know they needed until they open the box and say, “Wow, now that’s terrific.”

And with so much stress this year, why not gift our loved one’s tech that can make their lives easier? Tap or click here to see some of Amazon’s early Black Friday deals on tech.
