Still got a bit of gifting to do this season? If someone on your list seems to love tech and anything “smart,” one of these seven items may be a great gift for them this season.
Know someone who is always on the go? Get them a smart plug. The smart plug lets you schedule lights or other appliances that are plugged into the device to turn on automatically. This allows them to make sure they have their lights on or fan running before they arrive. It also helps them by monitoring power consumption in case they forget to turn something on or off.
One of my personal favorites, due to the 40-hour battery life, are Beats Solo 3 headphones. The headphones connect to Apple smartphones pretty easily, and if you purchase from Amazon less expensive than the Apple store. If you prefer to purchase in-store note that some stores, like Best Buy, will price match.
One of the best tech-savvy gifts is a portable charger. Just about everyone can use one, especially if they have a smartphone or tablet. This charger from Anker is a great affordable option to make sure your recipient's phone is always charged.
Help the traveler on your list avoid hefty baggage fees with this luggage scale. The scale has a digital-LCD display, so there is no confusion when weighing luggage. The scale also adds a tech savvy surprise—it doubles as a portable phone charger.
This case lets travelers take the perfect underwater photo. All you have to do is slip your phone into the bag and seal it to prevent any water from seeping through. The case is also a great deal, at only $7 on Amazon.
GoPros are pretty expensive but if you’re looking for an action camera to gift this year, check out the Polaroid Cube+. This camera allows travelers to share photos directly to their phone. Your phone can also be used as a viewfinder and shutter remote from up to 30 feet away. They also have a variety of accessories available to increase the usability of the camera.
The Tile Mate is an Amazon bestseller and happens to be one of our favorite items to gift this year. These tiles fit in just about anything and allow you to track them via Bluetooth. If a bag or wallet is lost while traveling, an alert will go out when another Tile user comes in contact with it. The network is pretty large, with over five million Tile devices sold.
