Here in the US, holiday shopping season officially kicks off on Black Friday, the day after Thanksgiving, but at Engadget we're getting started early. Three weeks early, to be precise. Today we're launching our 2016 holiday gift guide -- our biggest and most ambitious yet. This year you'll find 120 picks across 10 categories, up from 84 last year. You'll also find 100 percent more video, with a quick few-minute stop-motion vid and highlight reel accompanying all of our recommendations.
As ever, we built our guide around shopping for specific people. You won't find a "media streamer" section here, for instance, but rather, carefully selected sets of presents for the various types in your life -- everyone from gamers to workaholics to wanna-be Martha Stewarts. (Lots of cooking gadgets for them.) And, with many of our picks coming in under $50, you won't have to break your gift budget either. Have a look at our full guide here, and stay tuned over the coming weeks as we put the spotlight on our favorite picks in each category.
