Dyson debuted its latest and greatest personal fan, the Pure Cool Me, which captures 99.97% of allergens and pollutants and allows for an adjustable-to-your-exact-liking airflow.


Promising review: “Used this in my bedroom, really helps with those midnight hot flashes. Comforting sound, lulls you to sleep. This fan can really ‘blow you away’ or gently cool you. Love it.” —Firegirl

Get it from Amazon for $294.99.


The Fart Launcher 3000 — the opposite of a Dyson air purifier, you might say — proved that bathroom humor is alive and well among the youths by becoming the Hot Novelty Gift of 2019.


It comes with one fart cartridge which launches 100+ farts up to 10 feet away.

Promising review: “Do you have kids? Do they think butts and farts are the most amazingly hilarious things in the world? Then look no further — this is the gift for them. They fart. In many ways. It’s funny. They will laugh. You will become annoyed. They will laugh more. Every child’s dream.” —kimbodian13

Quip added a sleek and refillable floss dispenser to its collection of millennial-favorite dental products.


Get it from Quip for $20 (available in four metal colorways)


Amazon’s Fire TV Cube had an impressive glow up, adding speed and compatibility with all the key streaming services.


Promising review: “I’m a tech freak and love to try new technology. I pre-ordered this back in late September just to try it out since it has more storage, faster processor, and more memory than the Firestick 4K. I mainly bought this just to see how well Kodi would run on it and I must say. It runs really smooth! I did not experience any lag or buffer problems at all. All apps I tested (Netflix, Amazon Prime movies, youtube, etc) ran great! In fact, I think it even runs better than the Nvidia Shield and it’s almost half the cost!” —Kao

Get it from Amazon for $119.99.


A24 turned three of its critically-acclaimed films into stunning hardcover coffee-table books.


Lelo introduced a “whole new sensation” with the Sona 2 Cruise, which uses SenSonic technology for more intense stimulation.

Get it from Food52 for $25.


Chef’s Table star Ivan Orkin released an accessible and surprisingly funny cookbook of Japanese dishes that topped several year-end lists.


Promising review: “I highly recommend this cookbook to anyone looking for an accessible, thoughtful, fun entryway to cooking Japanese at home, without an intimidation factor. That doesn’t mean the recipes are necessarily easy. But the exploration looks like great fun while learning! The authors share what they love about the cuisine, and the country, and it is infectious.” —RepoMan

Get it from Amazon for $17.49 or from a local bookseller through Indiebound.


Hello Oral Care, the reader-favorite brand known for its activated charcoal products, added hemp seed oil to its toothpaste for an incredible moisturizing effect.


Includes: two activated charcoal and hemp 4oz toothpastes and 1 activated charcoal black toothbrush

Promising review: “I cannot live without this stuff! This truly is the only thing I am willing to use for myself, my children, and my husband. High quality and all natural.” —ThreeNme

Get it from Amazon for $19.97


Bose dropped a pair of audio sunglasses that, in a major twist, are not embarrassing!


Promising review: “What I wanted was a pair of sunglasses that wouldn’t cut off my situational awareness by blocking out sound. Tried “bone conduction” sunglasses which were terrible. These actually work with great sound. Amazing.” —John Becknell

Get them from Amazon for $199 (available in three styles).


Tommy John, the underwear empire known for its premium, wedgie-resistant materials, debuted a line of “second-skin” bras.

Get it from Tommy John for $48 (available in XS-L and in four colors).


The GoPro 8 took the reigns as the best GoPro on the market with updates to its design, app functionality, and livestreaming quality.


Promising review: “I skipped Hero 7 because I got Hero 6 right before the 7 came out. Anyways, HUGE upgrade in stabilization from my Hero 6. Also, audio is much better. This is the best GoPro in terms of stabilization. If you need gimbal performance without an actual gimbal I think this is the way to go — plus it fits in my pocket so I take it everywhere and make videos anywhere I want.” —Max Lee

Get it from Amazon for $395.


Amazon made a compelling case for Alexa with the latest Echo Show 5, a five-inch smart display with improved voice-activated features.


Promising review: “I have been using Alexa devices for some years now and thought it was time to update. So I sold my Echo Spot and Echo Show 1st Gen on eBay and bought two of these little beauties. I use them to talk to family, stream SirriusXM, manage by home lighting (Phillips Hue) and a host of other things (time, weather, flight departure and arrival details etc). I think these are the perfect size. Better sharp than the Spot for video chat and better size than the Show for placement in the home (not too obvious – digital clock size). They took minutes to setup and I’m very happy with them.” —Rob Sunny Las Vegas

Get it from Amazon for $59.99.


Everlane introduced a line of “ReCashmere” — premium Italian yarn that’s been recycled for 50% less impact — for an affordable and eco-friendly wardrobe staple.


Get it from Everlane for $95 (available in XXS-XL and in eight colors).

Dyson entered the future with its handheld portable stick vacuum, a splurge-worthy cleaning solution with two times the suction power of any cordless vacuum.


Promising review: “This one is by far the absolute best and most convenient Dyson.” —Kindle Customers

Get it from Amazon for $649.


Kevin Wilson released an incredibly original piece of fiction, Nothing To See Here —written in 10 days no, less!! — about twins that catch fire (and more broadly, friendship and class).



The latest budget-friendly Kindle became the first under $100 to include a front-facing light for night reading — a feature which has historically been reserved for its more expensive counterparts.


Promising review: “The improvements to the basic Kindle are great! I’ve been reading on mine the past several days and I’m extremely impressed. The lighting is the brightest, whitest and most even I’ve seen. It’s comfortable to hold, easy to read, and just as responsive as my Oasis and my husband’s Paperwhite. Highly recommend!” —Lynn

Get it from Amazon for $89.99.


Dusen Dusen and Areaware helped contribute to the boom of adult puzzles in 2019 with a very hip arc-patterned creation.


Echo Dot added a handy clock to its third-generation model, which packs quite an audio punch in a small package.


Promising review: “The ones with the clocks are awesome for the nightstand. They are nice and bright during the daylight and automatically dim in the evening. You can turn the auto-dimming off if you want it bright at night and just set a manual light level. I like it just as it is. The light is bright enough to read it at night but so dim that it’s not lighting up my room. I actually use Alexa during the night to ask her the time because then I do not have to put my glasses on. Bottom line is that the Echo Dot with or without the clock is not only a fun toy but a useful tool. I think in years to come this sort of thing will be in everyone’s home.” —Becky Brooks

Get it from Amazon for $44.99.


Jabra’s 75ts improved upon its already-superb wireless earbuds by increasing battery life by 50 percent and charging via USB-C.


Promising review: “I own the 65Ts, and bought these since they were said to be smaller and a better fit. I would agree on both counts, as sometimes the larger 65t would catch or move when I scrunched up in the gym. The smaller protrusion thing is very much appreciated. Sound quality is good, and clear. The smaller case with magnets and USB-C? SO GOOD!” —G

Get it from Amazon for $179.99.

And we’d be remiss not to mention Tasty’s very own five-part seasoning kit in collaboration with McCormick — spice up your 2020!


Promising review: “I have used these to replace 90% of what I used to use. They are seriously that good. Super fresh and delightfully mixed! You will not regret having these in reach when you next cook. Seriously. I have made spaghetti sauce, alfredo, and shepherd’s pie using mostly just these jars.” —mila

Get it from Amazon for $23.89.
