I’m on record as saying digital photo frames make the perfect gift. Why keep precious memories squirreled away inside phones or albums when they can be seen and enjoyed all the time?

Recently I rounded up the best photo frames you can buy, and there’s one in particular — Aura — that merits a closer look right now, because it’s on sale. In fact, there’s a deal on nearly every frame in the Aura lineup, starting at just $159. 

Starting at $159

In a nutshell, you can get the Aura Carver Luxe HD for $159 (save $20), the Mason for $179 (save $20) or the Mason Luxe for $219 (save $30).

There are only subtle differences between the three (screen size, resolution, etc.), but I suspect most users would be perfectly happy with the Carver.

That said, the secret sauce in all Aura frames is pre-configuration: If you’re buying one to give as a gift, you can preload it with photos that will appear automatically once it gets connected to a Wi-Fi network. And speaking of that, you can also configure the frame to make that connection — great if you’re sending it to someone who’s not especially tech-savvy.

Just one catch: If you’re planning to have it shipped directly to the recipient, you can only preload photos; the Wi-Fi setup option isn’t available. You need to take possession of the frame yourself first in order to do the Wi-Fi setup. (Thankfully, there’s no need to open the box.)

Find out more on Aura’s frame-gifting page. 

Friends and family members can contribute photos as well by way of Aura’s app or a dedicated photo-frame e-mail address. Those options, along with a brighter, more photo-friendly screen, make something like this far preferable to, say, an Amazon Echo Show.

Aura’s sale is expected to last well into December.

Starting at $159
