Black Friday and Cyber Monday are over, but the holiday shopping season is still in full swing.

Here are three more gadgets I’ve been reviewing that I think would make nice gifts.

The prices listed here are manufacturers suggested retail pricing, and you may find them cheaper when you shop.

Laifen Swift High-Speed Hair Dryer

You probably can’t tell it, but I’m pretty bald.

I haven’t needed a hair dryer in many years, so when I was asked to review the Laifen Swift High-Speed Hair Dryer ($199.99, or Amazon) I was not too sure.


Luckily, I’m married to a woman with lovely hair, and she’s been testing it out for me.

The Swift looks a lot like the more expensive Dyson Hair Dryer. It has a long handle, very short, round head and the air intake is at the bottom of the handle.

Its slim size makes it easier to store and pack in a suitcase. It comes with one magnetic concentrator nozzle attachment. There are additional attachments available, including a diffuser and a different concentrator, as well as a carrying bag which is handy for travel.

Laifen says it can dry your hair 5.5x faster with zero heat damage. It's described as a negative ionic blow dryer, and it has an 110,000 RPM brushless motor.
