Christmas is right around the corner. Tech gadgets are always a crowd pleaser, and 2017 has introduced us to all kinds of cool smartphones, tablets, and accessories. While everyone knows about the iPhone X or newest gaming console, they aren't always the perfect gift for everyone. Whether you are looking for a gift for dad, mom, or the office Christmas party, here are some gift ideas that will fit anyone's budget.
Christmas Party (Under $50)
Here are few gifts to please any technology lover in your office. Amazon's 2nd generation Echo Dot is a versatile, voice-controlled device with a small built-in speaker. It is able to pair with any Bluetooth or legacy speaker to make you nonsmart speaker smart! Being Alexa enabled it allows for a number of task like playing music, ordering food, or controlling your smart home.
Have someone in your office that is obsessed with a neat and tidy workspace, check out the Bluelounge CableBox. This box is well built for cable management to help organize the cords sprouting from your desk. It sports a pop-up cover makes it simple to adjust things if needed, and rubber strips on the box’s bottom help keep it in place.
Lastly, a good gift for our mobile professionals is the Anker PowerCore. Equipped with a high capacity external battery with two high-speed-charging USB ports that are all contained in a portable charger smaller than a wallet. This will help keep all your devices powered up while working on the go without weighing you down.
Stocking Stuffers ($50-100)
If we are looking for family gifts or something to fill a friend's stocking, these next gifts should fit the bill. Nomad makes an excellent wallet that doubles as an external battery bank for your smartphone. Their Slim Leather Charging Wallet is a great minimalist external battery solution for those always on the go.
Being 2017 there are a lot of smart home devices coming out to enhance how we interact with our utilities and home appliances. For those looking to get started on outfitting their home, a good gift would be the Phillips Hue White Ambiance Starter Kit. This kit lets you create various lighting environments to suit your needs in your home from virtually anywhere. Another good starter gift would be the ConnectSense Smart Outlet - Wi-Fi Dual Smart Plug. This helps turn old appliances into smart home devices. The outlet gives you greater command over your environment by allowing you to control and monitor your everyday plug-in devices.
