The holiday season is not far away…it’s time to consider ideas for The Best products for unique gifts that will make family and friends remember you with a smile all year long.
The Hammacher Schlemmer Institute is a non-profit consumer advocacy organization created in 1983 to research, test, and rate consumer products objectively, determining the items that are truly superior in each category. Each of the products below was vetted through rigorous testing, giving us confidence to designate them The Best of their type.
This emergency radio earned The Best rating from the Hammacher Schlemmer Institute because it had the longest playback time and clearest reception. In addition to being the only tested model that allowed users to set multiple weather alert types across multiple counties and states, the Best Emergency Radio ran for five hours after a full charge, far superior to other radios. The Best model also charges an iPhone from zero to 88% of its full capacity. This radio’s superior features include an integrated LED flashlight, water-resistant construction, USB port and a built-in solar panel for supplemental power.
These wireless TV headphones earned The Best rating from the Hammacher Schlemmer Institute because they had unmatched sound quality and superior range. The Best model received clear, crisp stereo sound up to 165′ away from its radio-frequency transmitter. These headphones also automatically adjust the volume of dialogue to ensure words are heard over a film’s score or sound effects.
This electric wine opener earned The Best rating from the Hammacher Schlemmer Institute because of its perfect worm insertion and rapid, effortless cork removal. A wine industry expert lauded The Best model for requiring “no effort at all.” The expert praised The Best model’s screw insertion as “flawless” on traditional and synthetic corks and its cork removal performance was “exemplary,” while other openers stuck to the lip of the bottle.
In coming days, we’ll tell you about more unique gift ideas identified as The Best by the Hammacher Schlemmer Institute.
