This holiday season, MyITpros is doing all the shopping for you! Whether you’re technically savvy or not, we’ve got 12 awesome gadgets picked out that are sure to make you the gift-giving hit of the season!

What it is: The Spivo Stick

Chances are, anyone reading this has taken a selfie at least once in their life (if not at least once a day!). Selfie sticks have become all the rage, making it easier to capture the perfect picture – but not without limitations. Enter the Spivo Stick – a waterproof, dirt-proof, snow-proof and crash-proof rotating selfie stick that can swivel 180 degrees. With just the click of a button located on the base of the stick, you can switch between filming yourself and the scenery around you, and the reliable rotation ensures you don’t miss anything!

The Spivo Stick is compatible with your favorite cameras (including all smartphones and GoPros) thanks to a universal tripod screw, and it comes with a swivel mount and one GoPro tripod mount. However, if you want to use the Spivo with your smartphone, you’ll have to purchase the phone mount separately. 

What’s more, the Spivo Stick is lighter than most GoPro selfie sticks and comes in three fixed sizes: Shot on S-12”, Shot on M-18” and Shot on L-26”. The different options lend themselves to specific types of activities, and you can find out more about which is right for you by visiting the Spivo website.

How much it costs: $49.99 (without phone mount)

You can purchase the Spivo Stick direct from Spivo.com – all three sizes retail at the same price. For use with a smartphone, you’ll have to buy the phone mount for $19.99, making your total $69.98. There is also an optional flotation device that can be purchased for $19.99.

Who to buy it for: The selfie-taking amateur photographer in your life

Selfie-taking has become an art – as has amateur video-editing all that GoPro footage. The Spivo Stick helps capture that perfect 180-degree shot with less editing, and its lightweight, durable design means you can take it anywhere from the party down the road all the way to beautiful, remote vacation spots.
