This Christmas, give the gift of connectivity that really connects! Whether you’re shopping for your grandparents who barely know what WiFi is, for your sister-in-law’s family of 6 who needs serious screen time management, or for your newly married friends who just bought their first house, the eero Home WiFi System is THE gift to give this year.
These sleek, compact, white boxes replace your old clunky, eyesore router and, strategically placed throughout your home, give you not only flawless WiFi connectivity, but the ability to do way more than your old sidekick router ever could.
All the set up is done exclusively through your smartphone, and once you plug a eero into your modem, the app takes over, even helping you decide where to place the other eeros! Monitor which devices in your home are connected at any given time, set guidelines on your kid’s iPad usage, pause the Internet (you know sometimes you want to!), name your network and password whatever pleases your fancy, create a guest network for your friends with one push of a button, and that just scratches the surface of what the eero system can do.
This could easily be the most functional and practical, dare we even say fun, Christmas gift under the tree this year.
- Replaces your wireless router and WiFi range extender
- A 3-pack covers a typical size 2,000-4,000 sq. ft. home – simply buy another eero for a bigger home, or buy a single eero for a smaller home!
- Setup and manage your network all from eero’s app – iPhone or Android
- Protected with state-of-the-art WPA2 encryption
- Easily allow friends to join your network via a simple text
- Family Profiles help monitor and control screen time for the family
- Automatic software updates
- Compatible with Ethernet wiring

Perfect gift for any home that wants to seamlessly be connected.
The brilliant and technology-changing idea of eero came from years of WiFi frustration. You know how it is… dead zones, buffering, ugly black router boxes, and complicated network names and passwords. A few guys, Amos, Nick, and Nate, decided to change the way the world does WiFi, by making it more streamlined, attractive, convenient, and ever evolving. eero was their solution, and now, this San Francisco based team of 70 people makes sure that WiFi is no longer a stressful thought for consumers, and delivers a system that replaces the typical router and all the frustrations that come with it.

Truly, we can hardly think of a better gift than a gorgeous and handmade piece of furniture. When things are handcrafted and made with love, care, and attention to detail, it puts more significance into the process of gifting. When you support small businesses, you are directly supporting someone’s family – and that is something that we can always stand behind here at Daily Mom. Etsy has made this process so much easier over the years. They offer a huge selection of different small business shops in one place, allowing you to search for exactly what it is you are looking for. This holiday season after much searching we stumbled onto one of our newest favorite shops, Stockton Heritage. Not only do they offer a gorgeous selection of live edge wood furniture, but they also have the ability to custom make just about anything your heart desires.

It is something that will be used and treasured in a household throughout the year. Any interior design junkie would do flips over a gift this gorgeous and exciting.
The selection Stockton Heritage offers is vast and eye catching! However, we were able to settle on our two favorite pieces this season. The first one is a Live Edge Spalted Maple Coffee Table. This exquisite table features gold hairpin legs (though you can have them done in any color) and is handcrafted from a Kiln-dried Minnesota Spalted Maple Live Edge slab before being mounted on the industrial steel hairpin legs. Like all their pieces, this one is hand finished with 5 coats of polyurethane to create a smooth and durable sheen.
In addition to the coffee table, we also love their Entryway Benches! They help finish and create the perfect look in your foyer, and double as a simple and comfortable place to sit and take your shoes off after a long day. This bench is created with tons of attention to detail from a beautiful live edge cherry slab. The legs are industrial flat steel to ensure durability and longevity. The piece is hand finished for a natural yet durable sheen. These are pieces that will live on in your home for years to come and delight anyone who finds them underneath the Christmas tree.
