The CR 2016 Holiday Gift Guide includes top-rated picks for everyone on your list, from tweens and teens, to foodies and coffee connoisseurs, to gadget geeks and tech gurus, and everyone in between — and it’s free! Just log in with your library card number and PIN to access it from any personal device.

Here’s a small sampling from this year’s gift guide. Be sure to check out the extensive guide, which includes product reviews, ratings, price deals, and model comparisons.

For Tweens & Teens

This might be the most rad (or epic or whatever the kids are saying these days) gift for this age set: 1MORE sleek earbuds with nine earpieces for a comfortable fit. They might also really dig these: FujiFilm waterproof camera and Braven portable speaker system.

For the Family Chef

CR’s no. 1 pick is the Panasonic FlashXpress toaster oven. Boring, you say? Maybe. But it features quartz and ceramic elements that deliver infrared heat instantly. And that means the good kind of fast food!

Some other useful cooking tools that made the list include the Oregon Scientific leave-in digital thermometer and a Cuisinart hand mixer.

For the Gadget Geek

CR offers a range of gift picks for gizmo geeks, from a Brother inkjet printer that’s great for printing photos, to a home Wi-Fi system, to smartwatches from Samsung and Apple.

For Foodies & Coffeeholics

Meals delivered to your doorstep? Yes, please! CR rated five (colorful) national meal kit services from Blue Apron, Green Chef, HelloFresh, Plated and Purple Carrot. Log in for complete reviews and ratings, as well as other edible gift goodies!

Maybe you know someone on a perpetual quest for coffee nirvana. The CR list includes several coffee makers, including a stovetop espresso maker, pour-over brewer, steam brewer, French press, and more, plus a few good coffee blends.

Check out the complete 2016 Holiday Gift Guide, and finish your gift list. Then go and enjoy the holiday season!
