The holiday party is as much a part of the season as shopping, caroling, and yelling at family members for taking too many rolls at dinner. Between the ugly sweaters, the drums of eggnog, and the over-served guests, a holiday party can be pretty stressful when you don’t have the right tools of the trade. Fortunately, TechCo is here to assuage your fears with a gift guide that will turn your holiday party in a raucous occasion.

From levitating beer glasses to glowing speakers, this guide will provide you with everything you need to make sure your guests go home happy. Even Santa will want to get in on the action! Check out these five products below and kick your holiday party into the next gear.

Sonos PLAY: 1 Smart Wireless Speaker

Nothing turns a get-together into a party faster than a good set of speakers, and the Sonos PLAY is the way to go. Because Sonos is considered the only wireless speaker of its size to deliver clear HiFi sound, you know you’ll be hearing every bass line, every melodic strum, and most importantly every single high note.

You’ll be able to stream your entire music library, along with popular music services and internet radio. You can start with one for plenty of sound, and add more over time to fill your home with music. Plus with simple to setup, you can control from anywhere with your smartphone, tablet or laptop.

Levitating X Beer Cup

Tired of performing magic tricks at your party to impress your guests? Well have no fear, the levitating beer glass is here! You’ll be able to enjoy the shock and awe on your guests faces when they notice that your drink never hit the table top.

While you might think this kind of thing is pretty precarious at best and downright dangerous at worst, there’s nothing to worry about. The cup in question is made of shatter-proof faux glass and the chrome magnetic base is solid to the core. Plus, it’s wireless (with a simple charger) so you won’t have to worry about getting zapped if you do spill your drink.

Levitating X Cocktail Cup

Not everyone at your party is going to be as big a fan of beer as you are. Fortunately, we’ve covered all the bases here with a cocktail cup that will make the whiskey fans, the eggnog nuts, and the vodka vandals at your party jump for joy.

Just like the Levitating X Beer Cup, the Cocktail Cup is made of shatter-proof faux-glass and comes with the wireless magnetic chrome base. It’s the best way to make sure everyone at your party feels as welcomed as possible.

Glowbar Speaker

If you really want to turn your party into the talk of the town, the Glowbar Speaker will remind your guests that this year’s event is more nightclub than family get together. The built-in LED screen illuminates with different colored bars that sync with the music.

The Glowbar Speaker has full on board controls let you change the track or volume, along with a12 Watt sound output that will fill any home in your house. You can have the party going all night, as the built-in lithium ion battery allows 3 hours of continuous playtime.

SUB® Home Beer Draft System

If you’re planning on having a lot of beer fans at your party, there’s no better way to show holiday spirit than with a rotating collection of crafts beers in the SUB® Home Beer Draft System. Developed by KRUPS®, the SUB® fits on any countertop, and keeps your craft beer fresh, cold, and carbonated from the first pour to the last.

The SUB® works with two 67 oz. mini kegs called TORPs, and keeps them fresh and ready to drink for 2-3 weeks after delivery. Plus it allows access to an ever-changing rotation from more than 20 microbreweries.
