    "Best camping/hiking gadget ever! If you're out in the wilderness frequently, you've got to have one of these. You can drink any water without fear of contamination or parasites. This thing is just a must have for anyone who spends a lot of time in the outdoors either camping or hiking. The filter lasts a good long while, too, so you won't find yourself changing it constantly."

    "LOOP World Adapter Plug is an adapter that will let you charge 3 devices. It has plugs for various different countries. This would be extremely handy if you are a frequent traveler. If you don't travel outside the country it doesn't do much for you. I'd say it only barely fits the topic."

    "If you haven't ventured into the Smart Home arena yet, might I suggest going with an Amazon Echo. First one out of the gate, and still the best in my opinion. At an affordable price point (under $50), you can be the envy of your friends when you can turn on lights, play just about any music, and have Amazon items delivered to your door, just by using your voice! I love my Echo and you will too. "

    "These locator keychains are an absolute lifesaver! They're great for your keys or your luggage! You could even put one in your kid's pocket and cheat at hide and seek! If you have a history of misplacing keys, these will help you out a ton! Just remember the locators don't have unlimited range. The price is right if you ever misplace things."
