The fourth episode of Gizmodo’s podcast Gadgettes just dropped, and this week, we’re getting ready for the holidays. Your hosts, Gizmodo reporter Florence Ion and senior editor Caitlin McGarry, womansplain the latest gadgets we’re testing and reviewing. Usually, we interview our fellow Gizmodo reporters about the week’s biggest tech news. But this week, we’re walking you through what to buy and what not to bother with as you’re scoping out gifts this shopping season.

Caitlin and Flo’s gadget picks range from our favorite headphones and earbuds that we’ve reviewed and stress-tested to the smartwatches we’re wearing. We’ll go through how to make gift-giving feel extra special by encouraging you to take the extra step. For instance, why not consider bundling a subscription service along with that wearable in the box? We’ve included a complete list of all the products mentioned in the podcast if you scroll down.

We know it’s been a challenging year—sorry, a few years. But if you’re out there shopping for someone you love, maybe one of these gadgets will give them a little joy. Check out the podcast below, and then peruse our list of must-haves.

The Best Gifts for the Music Lover in Your Life

If you’re looking for something for the fitness buff who sweats so much their earbuds won’t stay in, the Beats Fit Pro ($200) are an excellent choice, and they come in a variety of colors. So do the Samsung Galaxy Buds 2 ($150), which are so comfortable that Flo falls asleep every night with one in her ear. You might even consider an aftermarket case to dress it up and cover it from the elements.
