As we draw ever closer to Black Friday, Cyber Monday, and all the shopping days in between, you’ll have no shortage of cheap, flashy, internet-connected gadgets to choose from for holiday gifts. But in the frenzy, don’t forget that the widgets you buy will live at recipients’ houses—or on their wrists—for months or years to come.
