If you’re playing it safe this holiday season and have already decided to skip the trips to ensure your relatives stay healthy, you’re probably feeling disappointed by missing out on family gatherings. While nothing can replace in-person connection, the Echo Show is a smart way to stay connected while keeping your distance.

See Your Family without the Trip

While you might not be able to see your family in person this year, you can still have conversations over Thanksgiving dinner with the Echo Show. The clear and bright video screen allows you to make hands-free calls to anyone with the Alexa app.

Cook Your Holiday Meals

You can still keep up with some traditions this year by cooking your favorite holiday meals without the holiday trip. Alexa will guide you through step-by-step recipes from Food Network Kitchen so you can baste the perfect turkey, mash more potatoes, and still save time for pie.

The Perfect Gift for Grandma

The Echo Show has a user-friendly interface that makes it easy for anyone to quickly pick up. Combined with the video calling feature, this Alexa-enabled device can also stream TV shows, movies, audiobooks, radio, and podcasts while controlling other smart home devices. Load an Echo Show up with family photos and send it to your grandparents for the perfect holiday gift.
