With Black Friday deals just around the corner, it’s time to start working on your holiday shopping list! If you have a tech-lover on your nice list, we have gift ideas ranging from the fun and humorous to super useful technology, all of which will fit perfectly under the tree:
1. iROBOT Vacuum. You push a button and a robot cleans your house. It’s like Back to the Future, only better.
2. Brookstone HDMI Pocket Projector. Connect it to your smartphone, game console, etc. for a big-screen view of any film.
3. Apple Watch. Can you even call yourself a tech lover if you haven’t hopped aboard the latest Apple craze?
4. ‘Here’ Earbuds. The age of wireless listening has arrived!
5. Keyboard Coasters. We all know that one person who would proudly serve drinks on these.
7. Amazon Fire TV. Their sales pitch says it all: “Amazon Fire TV is a tiny box that connects your HDTV to a world of online entertainment.” – Jesse C.
8. Nest Thermostat. Your home’s temperature has never been more comfortable. – Jesse C.
9. WeMo Lights. All the brightness at a fraction of the energy consumption and heat production. – Jesse C.
10. Sonos Wireless Speakers. This is the perfect gift for anyone who loves crystal-clear sound quality and simple music streaming. – Jesse C.
11. “Coffee First, Then Linux” mug. Perfect for an employee or client holiday gift, this creative mug will make any tech lover chuckle. – Jeff B.
12. “Run CMD” T-shirt. If you don’t quite understand this, then get it for the techie in your life who does. – Jeff B.
13. Mini USB Powered Fridge. What’s better than a tabletop mini-fridge? A tabletop mini-fridge that is oh-so-conveniently powered by a USB. – Jeff B.
14. Star Wars Accordion Sunshade. Because riding in the Millenium Falcon is unfortunately out of the question, you can at least feel like you are with this rad sunshade. – Bryan R.
15. Radiometer. It may say “for ages 8 and up,” but we won’t judge you if you’re a “little” older than that and still think a radiometer is cool. – Bryan R.
16. Raspberry Pi 3 Model B Motherboard. And last but not least, this motherboard is the mother of all gifts. – Bryan R.
We hope this techie-inspired gift guide helps with your holiday shopping endeavors. And if all else fails, maybe buy one (or a few) of these gifts for yourself!
