AeroPress coffee and espresso machine
31.95 USD by Amazon
For the production of micro-filtered coffee with an extraordinarily rich aroma. Carrying bag for the journey included.
Sometimes the best technology is the low-tech technology, and few things prove the point, like the AeroPress coffee maker. I got one of these things as a present and it was like giving a wine or Pepsi or something to a man who only knew water. I had spent so many years drinking coffee from a lousy Mr. Coffee brewer and later from a K-cup dispenser that I forgot what coffee should taste like. Holy crap, this thing makes good coffee!
The kit consists of a piston, seal, chamber, and filter cover, and it is shipped with 350 paper filters, a funnel, a stirrer, and a shovel, but should not be intimidated. This thing is easy to learn and clean while fun to use and master. Just put some coffee in the chamber, add hot water, put in the flask, wait a bit and push the flask down until you hear a satisfying hiss. In two minutes, you'll have the tastiest cup of coffee you've ever had. Oh yes, the plastic is BPA-free, so do not worry. – TC Luoma

$ 73.89 from Amazon
Wireless. 18 hours of power with one battery charge. Memory Foam headband and earcups. Military grade P2i nano-coating protects against sweat.
Some people simply can not hold their earphones in place and prefer earphones for the gym. These budget-friendly "cans" were also recommended by our Instagram followers. Fans like the convenient on-ear controls that allow you to skip tracks, adjust the volume, and pause the music when these talkative people break your damn workout. – Chris Shugart

Instant Pot DUO60, 6 Quart
$ 74.96 from Amazon
6 in 1 Pressure Cooker, Slow cooker, rice cooker, roast, steam and heat.
Any good nutritional trainer will tell you that the key to diet compliance is the preparation of meals. Sure, you need to eat the right foods, but these foods need to be ready before you get hungry, hungry, and seduced by a bowl of sugar-frozen Wheaty Cucks.
Enter the instant pot. With the easy-to-use pressure cooker function, this appliance can conjure up mountains of meat and vegetables in just a few minutes. We're talking about a whole chicken in about 24 minutes, a dozen boiled eggs in 5 minutes, baked potatoes in 12 minutes, and oats in 10 minutes (plus the time it takes to build pressure, which is pretty fast). For most foods you can set and forget it. The instant pot takes care of cooking without your meat.
Oh yes, he's also a slow cooker, a yogurt maker and a rice steamer. I think it also does Shiatsu massage, but I have not pressed this button yet. – Chris Shugart

Wireless / Wired Avantree Bluetooth Headset
$ 39.99 from Amazon
Super lightweight over-the-ear Headphones with wireless connection Bluetooth and cable connections.
Music makes sports or just about any activity more bearable, and good headphones can play an important role, especially if earphones do not fit in your ear holes. This set sits lightly on the head and ears, so you do not feel like you're wearing a helmet. The Bluetooth wireless connection allows you to play, pause, or skip songs using the buttons on the headset without having to mess with your phone.
I also wear them whenever I work in the garden, also known as NEPA, though 90 decibels are technically identical to Metallica B. 90 decibels from a lawnmower that may not fulfill the purpose of "ear protection". – Chris Colucci
