It’s crunch time! Christmas is days away. If you have a technology fan on your list but still aren’t sure what to get them here are a few ideas that should be fairly easy to pick up.
Chromecast: I’ve written about this before. It doesn’t matter if your tech fan has an iPhone or an Android, Mac or PC, a Chromecast makes a great gift. You should be able to pick one up at any of the big box retailers. As an added bonus, there are deals on these right now that include credit to the Google Play Store.
Bluetooth Speaker: I got one of these for Christmas last year and love it! It’s been used nearly every day. You can find them in all price ranges from $15 – $150 dollars. These also work with both iDevices and Android.
Power Inverter: You plug this into the cigarette lighter in your vehicle and then you can plug your regular power cords into it. Phones, tablets, laptops, portable DVD players… you can power them all on the go! Once you’ve had one of these you’ll wonder how you got along without it.
Stylus for touch screens: This is another one of those things you might not buy for yourself but really appreciate having once you own one.
Google Play Gift Card: The Android fan on your list is sure to appreciate this. They could use it to buy apps, movies, music, and more. Pick them up at Target, Wal-Mart, Best Buy… they even have them at our local grocery store.
iTunes Gift card: The iPhone/iPad lover on you list can always use this! It’s the iTune equivalent of the Google Play Gift card. You can find them at most big box retailers.
Otterbox Phone Case: These are my favorite phone cases. They are rugged and offer maximum protection. Even if your tech fan doesn’t use it all the time, there are bound to be times when their phone could use extra protection. But if you’re more of a fan of more creative and personalised phone cases, doing a quick search into personalised phone cases (or Personalisierte Handyhülle for my German readers) and hopefully you’ll be able to find what you are looking for. All phones need at least some form of protection.
Those are just a few tech gifts you should be able to pick up fairly quickly and for less than $50.
