This is it, everybody. Our final George Talks Tech holiday episode of 2021. We hope you had some fun and learned a little something about how to pick the right gift.

For a true social butterfly — the kind of extrovert who knows life is all about sharing moments with friends and family whether it's a get-together, dinner party or pizza party — I’m going with the JBL Xtreme3 Portable Bluetooth Speaker. You can dance and carol the night away with up to 15 hours of playtime. Plus, you can fill up even the Palace of Versaille (hint, hint) by syncing it up with compatible PartyBoost speakers. And if so inclined, you can even take the gathering poolside with that IP67 waterproof rating.

Check out the video above to see which famous historical figure popped in our final push George Talks Tech Holiday Your Way Historical Figure Randomizer (Confused? Watch episode 1).

If you want your own George this holiday season — either to find the perfect gift to add to your list or for that hard-to-buy-for someone — take our #HolidayYourWay Quiz. It’s only five questions and it’ll probably take you less time than scooting down a chimney. Plus, it’s way cleaner.

Happy holidays!
