In the spirit of the holidays, all of us at SparkCognition like to wrap up the year by reflecting on our successes and looking forward to things we want to achieve in the coming year. We also like to think about things we just… want. That’s why this year we decided to ask some of our own to share what’s on their wish list, and as you might imagine, it was full of gadgets, trips, and of course, the newest video game.
Whether shopping for the techie in your life or just looking for personal inspiration, check out some of the items our employees on the nice list are asking for:

Whether it’s the perfect espresso, the latest smartwatch, or a ride down Splash Mountain, it’s important not to get hung up on the material things.
