The Verge’s favorite gifts for 2023

[ad_1]

Lego Millennium Falcon

If I had unlimited money to buy a ridiculous and impractical gift, I would buy Lego’s 7,541-piece Millennium Falcon set. This is a hyper detailed model of one of the most famous vehicles in all of cinema. Plus, it would be cool to transport the completed ship and pretend to fly it. — Jay Peters, editor-in-chief
Price: $849.99+

Fujifilm GFX100 II camera

Okay, I know it’s an expensive camera, but it’s actually cheaper than the previous model. The GFX 100 II offers a new sensor and features like 4K video, as well as updated autofocus algorithms with better subject detection. But if you buy it, you’ll probably use it primarily for photography and you won’t be disappointed. In for money. — Vjeran Pavic, supervising producer
Price: $7,499+

Samsung The Wall 146-inch all-in-one

If I could afford to have entire walls of screens in my house, I absolutely would. Each screen brings me closer to the feeling of living on the USS Enterprise. My screens show me practical information like the weather and my calendar, or more user-friendly information like my favorite photos and works of art. This would be the next logical step. — Calliope Wright, junior editor
Price: $219,999

Thermomix TM6

The Thermomix TM6 is the ultimate gift for chefs. At its core, it’s a blender that cooks and stirs, but it can also steam your salmon, sauté your onions, chop vegetables, grate parmesan, whip your cream, and even knead your dough. As if that wasn’t enough, it’s also a kettle, a rice cooker, a sous vide machine and a kitchen scale! — Jennifer Pattison Tuohy, reviewer
Price: $1,499

Custom DualSense Wireless Controller

Not only can Battle Beaver’s custom PlayStation 5 controller be designed to your looks specifications, but its “smart” triggers and buttons provide instant feedback for lightning-fast responsiveness. The optional back buttons give you a slight advantage in competitive gaming, but unlike the unique DualSense Edge, Beaver’s crisp back buttons are integrated into the controller wherever you choose. — Antonio G. Di Benedetto, business writer
Price: $219

Forme Studio smart mirror

Why go to the gym when you can take it home? The Forme Studio smart mirror comes with dual front cameras, allowing you to participate in live personal training sessions without going out. You can even stream on-demand classes in 4K and enjoy personalized workouts. — Sheena Vasani, business editor
Price: $2,495

A game of thrones (Folio Society copy)

The Folio Society brings new magic to George RR Martin A song of ice and fire series, better known as Game Of Thrones. The novels include stunning illustrations and careful binding, although they come at a cost. A single volume costs $230, while the complete series costs $1,150. But that’s just the price of playing Game of Thrones. — Kaitlin Hatton, Senior Audience Manager
Price: $230

DreameBot L20 Ultra

If you’re looking for an almost completely hands-free cleaning experience, the Dreame L20 robot vacuum delivers. It can empty its bin, fill its own water tank and even remove and replace its cleaning pads. It’s also the only Robovac that cleans my baseboards! Other highlights include AI-powered obstacle avoidance, mopping detection, a camera, speaker, and mic for two-way audio. — Jennifer Pattison Tuohy, reviewer
Price: $1,149.99+

Vaonis Stellina Observation Station

Few things inspire more awe than looking at the stars. The Stellina lets you admire the cosmos without the expertise needed to use a traditional telescope. In fact, you don’t even need to be near the telescope. Images are sent wirelessly to your phone or tablet, allowing you to capture images of nebulae and galaxies from your back porch. — Sheena Vasani, business editor
Price: $3,999

Desk signed Frank Lloyd Wright Racine

I don’t have a chair nice enough to sit behind this desk. I don’t have any clothes that would make me feel like I belong behind that desk. I don’t have a house luxurious enough to justify this office. But if I had the chance, I’d love to feel like I was in the spare room of a 1960s supervillain lair. — Tristan Cooper, Social Media Manager
Price: $11,050

Expedition The best of Antarctica in depth (Ocean Endeavor)

If you have money, you could take your loved ones to a pretty island with crystal clear waters. But why go where everyone has already been? Except for some scientists, Antarctica is the only place in the world uninhabited by humans, which means it’s full of mysteries just waiting to be discovered. In my book, that makes things a lot more exciting. — Sheena Vasani, business editor
Price: $10,650

Akari light sculptures

Isamu Noguchi’s Akari Light Sculptures are timeless lamps handcrafted from bamboo and mulberry paper. These are design classics that exude a sense of calm joy and don’t seem overexposed. Some look like small televisions, while others resemble friendly aliens, the moon, or walking columns of stone. This one looks like Totoro. They are available in a wide range of floor, ceiling and table designs. I really want one. — Nathan Edwards, Reviews Editor
Price: $1,800

Analog pocket

There are, of course, plenty of ways to play old Game Boy games on modern hardware. But few are as charming or authentic as the Analogue Pocket, which combines a beautiful modern screen with the classic Game Boy form factor and plays the original Game Boy, Game Boy Color, and Game Boy Advance cartridges. No wonder the handheld immediately sells out as soon as it becomes available. — Jon Porter, senior reporter
Price: $220

Maeving RM1

I always wanted a “real” motorcycle. The electric Maeving RM1 certainly isn’t that, but I can’t deny the beautiful appeal of the British city bike. It’s built with high-quality materials and reaches a wind speed of 45 mph, making it perfect for getting around town or anywhere within a 40-mile radius. Now who has six thousand dollars to spare and knows the right importer? — Brandon Widder, Business Editor
Price: ~$6,056

Sennheiser Ambeo Plus soundbar

Sennheiser’s high-end soundbar is the very definition of a luxury purchase. It offers 13 state-of-the-art speakers, 400W of amplifier power and highly advanced 3D audio processing, giving it an unrivaled level of clarity. I have no plans to build a real home theater system just to watch old seasons of Justifiedbut maybe with the Ambeo Plus I wouldn’t have to. — Brandon Widder, Business Editor
Price: $1,199.95+

HÅG Capisco Chair

Of all the press samples I’ve tried over the years, the HÅG Capisco chair is the one I’ve been most hesitant to return. This stylish, adjustable office chair is undeniably unique and surprisingly ergonomic given its saddle-inspired construction, which also allows you to use it in several comfortable positions. You just have to ask The edgeJay Peters, who uses one daily. — Brandon Widder, Business Editor
Price: $1,088

Le Creuset Ultimate 157-Piece Cookware Set

A 157-piece Le Creuset kitchen set arriving at your home on a pallet may seem like the most extra thing ever, but if you have the money to spend, who cares? The set includes every kitchen item you can think of, including Dutch ovens, pots and pans, mugs, dinnerware, French press, utensils, and even cookbooks. — Sheena Vasani, business editor
Price: $4,499.99

Volkswagen ID Buzz (with Ququq BusBox-4)

The Volkswagen ID Buzz is a minivan like no other, especially when equipped with the Ququq BusBox-4. The compact box allows you to transform the retro-looking electric vehicle into a camper van with a comfortable folding bed and a kitchen including a refrigerator, a two-burner gas stove and a table. In other words, it’s essentially a home on wheels, which makes it perfect for digital nomads. — Sheena Vasani, business editor
Price: $3,442+

Warner Bros. 100th Anniversary Studio Collection

For movie buffs, the Warner Brothers 100th Anniversary Studio Collection is a dream gift, which includes 30 of the studio’s most iconic films from the last century. This means you can binge on beloved classics like East of Eden And 2001: A Space Odysseyas well as modern hits like The matrix, The shinyAnd Elvis (and all in 4K too). — Sheena Vasani, business editor
Price: $329.19+

Packster2 70

If money were no object, most people would start looking at luxury sports cars – but not me. Give me a premium electric cargo bike with radical styling, great range, and exceptional power output. Give me the Packster2 70, which can also carry my two kids while having a slim enough profile to split the lanes of all the oversized SUVs stuck in traffic. — Andrew Hawkins, Transportation Editor
