Must-Have Devices and Tech Accessories for Kids and Family


Brighten up the holiday for the whole family this season! Verizon makes it easy to stay connected, start the New Year off in style and stuff stockings the right way. Check out our top tech must-haves tech gifts for kids and family:

For Him:

Google Home Hub – For the guy that has everything, this takes it to the next level. Now questions come with visual answers. Play YouTube videos on its 7 inch touchscreen, see a rundown of the day, and keep track of all those holiday gatherings. Plus when it’s time to entertain, you can easily set the mood by playing songs from a number of popular music services – including Spotify.

Google Pixel 3XL – ‘Tis the season for family photos – whether it’s a reaction from that must have gift, or just a group shot – and no smartphone takes better pics than the Pixel 3/3XL! Top Shot makes sure everyone is always looking good, and portrait mode will make people think you hired a photographer! And with built in Google Lens, finding deals is easier than ever. Just point your phone at a product, and see the results!

OtterBox Defender Series Case (available for iPhone, Samsung, Pixel) – This rugged case will protect your device against drops, bumps and dust.

JBL Everest 310GA Wireless headphones with Google Assistant – Listen to your favorite songs for up to 20 hours at a time, now with Google Assistant.

Pixel 3 Fabric Case – Protect your new investment in style. This lightweight and thin case provides plenty of grip and protection, plus it looks nice!

For Her:

Palm – We could all use extra space, especially during the holidays. So whether it’s a holiday party or a family gathering, take the Palm instead. This companion to your smartphone uses the same number as your primary phone but in a much smaller package. Paired with the Kate Spade clutch (coming soon), you can leave your purse at home and have everything you need on your wrist!

Fitbit Versa in Peach – The perfect fitness companion for recording workouts, heart rate zones, sleep patterns and more.

Kate Spade NY Gift Set: Stability Ring & Protective Hardshell Case for iPhone – Combine high fashion and everyday convenience with this phone case by Kate Spade.

Lifeprint 2×3 Photo and Video Printer for Android and iOS – Print your favorite photos right from your phone with this Bluetooth enabled printer.

Pixel 3 in not pink – We all demand more out of our phones than ever before, and Pixel 3 can handle anything you throw at it. From questions to the Google Assistant, to pictures of holiday displays (throw your Pixel 3 in night sight and prepare to be amazed as your low light photos pop to life) this is a perfect primary driver. And it’s also the perfect size. Not to mention its not pink color which looks like your cheeks after coming in from the cold!

High-tech holiday cooking
Want the best of the holidays with the least amount of hassle? Let Verizon tech take you to tinsel town and wow your family. Verizon’s Heidi Flato will share how it’s done.

Did someone say dessert? Check out your Google Home Hub with Voice Assistant to start making your time in the kitchen easier. Say: “Hey Google, let’s make chocolate chip cookies” for step-by-step baking instructions. Hands covered in cookie dough? No problem. Simply ask your Google Assistant for a little help to set a timer, or multiple concurrent timers, without touching a thing. You can also ask for conversions like: “Hey Google, how many teaspoons are in a tablespoon?”

What if you’re out of recipe staples like flour and chocolate chips? Just go ahead and say it to make an order for to-the-door delivery. With Google Express you can order delivery for household essentials from your favorite stores. Tell your Assistant: “OK Google, buy me some flour and chocolate chips.”

Knock knock, who’s there? Have the chocolate chips arrived? With the Nest Hello doorbell, the Assistant will alert you when someone rings the doorbell and give you the option to view the live stream right from your phone, TV or tablet.

You can also count on your Samsung Galaxy Tab S4 for a great visual display in the kitchen. If the kiddos get bored after licking the cookie dough spoon, they can try on the tablet’s S Pen. Pick from a selection of pen and brush types and they can create your next holiday work of art to share with grandma and grandpa.

And if you want Food Network worthy photos, try on the Google Pixel 3 XL. Get everyone in the picture with wide-angle selfies. Snap portraits like a pro with Portrait Mode. Capture smiles, not blinks, for a great photo every time with Top Shot – in case you missed the best dunk shot ever. And save all your favorite moments with free, unlimited photo storage.

And when it’s time to snuggle up and catch your favorite holiday movies, Set timers on apps and turn off visual notifications. Use the wind down mode to dim the screen and get ready for a good night’s sleep.
