If you have someone in your life that is a tech fantic, then chances are for any special celebration such as birthday or Christmas, you’re going to want to buy them a techie gift. It can be a little intimidating looking for tech gifts, because it can be hard to know exactly what they’d like, especially if you’re not up to date with technology yourself. But there are some almost fool-proof tech gift ideas that almost anyone will love. Keep reading for my top 4 thoughtful tech related gifts:
1. Smart Watch
I have an Apple Watch, because I use Apple products across the board, and wow do I love it. There’s so many great features, including the ability to monitor many health stats such as your overall steps for the day, your heart rate and it even checks to see if there are any irregularities with your heart rate. If the person you’re shopping for doesn’t have a smart watch, then it can be worth investing in one for them. I suggest buying the same brand smart watch as whatever phone type they have, that way they’ll work seamlessly together. They’ll be able to use their smart watch to receive notifications and phone calls. You can learn more about all the features of the smartwatches by checking out their respective websites.
2. A Drone
For a long time drones were very expensive and inaccessible, but now you might be surprised to see their prices. You can get small hobby drones with a camera for a few hundred dollars, making it a very fun and relatively affordable gift depending on your budget. There are so many different options available on the market, and the price points vary considerably depending on the image quality and specs. One of the most popular options is the DJI Mavic 3, which offers professional image quality and video footage. It’s one of the best semi pro options available and you can click here to learn more about it.
3. Milk Frother
If your budget is more modest, but you still want to surprise that tech lover with something they’ll enjoy, why not buy them a milk frother? It’s a small machine that can heat and froth milk in one simple step, allowing you to enjoy home made barista style coffee or cafe style drinks. If the person you’re shopping for doesn’t drink coffee, don’t worry! You can make a delicious hot chocolate, chai latte, or even a yummy hot tea. My favorite type of milk frother is one that heats and froths in one, but you can also buy a more simple frother if you’re working with a smaller budget.
4. Wireless Headphones
I use my wireless headphones everyday and consider them to be one of the best purchases I’ve ever made. If the person you’re shopping for doesn’t have their own pair, then there’s a good chance they’d love to be gifted some. The first question you need to ask yourself is do you think they need noise canceling, or will standard bluetooth headphones be sufficient? In general noise canceling headphones are considerably more expensive as more technology is involved, but it’s worth the cost. Then you’ll want to decide whether you want the bigger Bose style headphones, or maybe something smaller like the Apple in ear Airpods. Check out the varying websites to learn more about the great wireless headphone options available.
Buying a tech gift doesn’t have to be hard, especially if you choose one of these great options. Happy shopping!
