Learn what's trending across POPSUGAR. Happy December, geeks! Have you noticed a theme around here recently? Ah, yes, the holidays are upon us, and the Geek team is invested in finding you the best tech and pop culture finds for everyone on your shopping list. For this month's Must Haves, though, we're sharing with you what we hope ends up under our Christmas trees this year. From The Hobbit mania to cozy gaming housewares — Santa, are you listening? The Bikepod Recording every ride may just be the best motivation to keep my bike in use despite Winter's chill. The Bikepod from Photojojo ($25) works with most smartphone-sized phones to act as a tripod, which is ready for action, atop a set of bicycle handlebars. It's made of metal and cork to absorb all the bumps and dips of the open road while keeping your phone safe and, for cycling purists, the handlebars scratch-free. — Kelly Schwarze, associate editor Bikepod from Photojojo $25 from photojojo.com Buy Now The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey Lego set Is there anything more exciting than the Dec. 14 release of The Hobbit? No, probably not. Director Peter Jackson has upped the ante with his Lord of the Rings prequel trilogy, shooting the new movie at 48 frames per second instead of the traditional 24 for an even more fantastical, epic 3D viewing experience. Lego has a complete collection commemorating the film, but we're most excited about the Unexpected Gathering ($70) set based on the chilling trailer. — Nicole Nguyen, editorial assistant collection commemorating the film, but we're most excited about the $70 from thehobbit.lego.com Buy Now Unexpected Gathering $70 from shop.lego.com Buy Now Scandinavian Invaders Space Invaders meets chic Scandinavian design in one cozy pillow ($20). That it has a touch of seasonal colors is a perfect bonus right now, even though it'll be taking residence on my couch long after the holidays have passed! — KS one cozy pillow $20 from society6.com Buy Now The 2012 iMac When the new superslim iMac was unveiled in October, I couldn't believe my eyes. The edge of the LCD display you're looking at is five (!!) millimeters thick. There are 21.5-inch (starting at $1,299) or 27-inch (starting at $1,799) models shipping now with 8GB of memory, quad-core Intel Core i5, and 1TB of hard drive, plus a variety of graphic cards and processor options depending on your needs. In other words, it's at the top of my wish list this year. — NN Evoke Mio Radio by Orla Kiely Home stereos and speakers have evolved into tiny sleek things, but sometimes I want just a touch of nostalgia with my tunes and perhaps even, yes, a pattern! The Evoke Mio Radio by Orla Kiely ($242) has basic iPhone/MP3 hookups so you can listen to whatever you want, but see those shiny little dials? Those let you tune in to radio stations the old-fashioned way or through digital presets. Plus, the handle makes it portable enough to actually take anywhere. — KS Evoke Mio Radio by Orla Kiely $242 from orlakiely.com Buy Now Basis From Nike+ Fuelband to Jawbone Up, there are plenty of small motion-based gadgets available, but the latest device uses technology that measures more data than ever. Like its competitors, Basis ($199) has a three-axis accelerometer that detects steps. But unlike other health bands, it includes sensors that measure optical blood flow, perspiration, and skin temperature. The band's software finds opportunities to insert healthy habits gradually over time, stressing consistency with steady and systematic "take-charge actions." — NN Basis $199 from get.mybasis.com Buy Now Share this post Tech ShoppingEditor's PickMust HavesGeek Gear Get Inspired With Our Living Newsletter You're subscribed!
