Tech gifts have a way of being forgiving. Provided your intended gift recipient isn’t entirely anti-technology, you’re bound to find something that is, at the very least, interesting. Something fun to try out that might also be a learning experience. Here are a few tech ideas for the tech-savvy or the tech-curious in your life.
The GoPro action camera has been around for quite some time now, and has become the standard for shooting action footage, and even home video for some people. Your gift recipient doesn’t have to own a snowboard to get the most out of this waterproof high-res camera, and it takes up almost no space in a purse or backpack.
Philips Prestige Beard Trimmer
This is a solid-looking piece of equipment, for making that beard shave all the more comfortable. No one likes a lightweight, snaggy beard trimmer. The Prestige has a metal comb built in, and checks your hair density at a rate of 125 times per second.
This is another in a long-line of screen-equipped exercise machines that help motivate with streaming workouts. It’s a rowing machine with a built-in view.
These ear buds are translucent and feature noise cancellation, and are a fun, nice-looking competitor to AirPods.
Adding a little bit of light and color to your space is very easy with Nanoleaf Lines, a series of light bars that you control with an app or with your voice. They can also be synced to change color with music.
The Ray-Ban Stories Wayfarer smart sunglasses can send photos to social media with their built-in camera, play music, and take video, as well. They’re a little pricy, but if you live for the Gram, these might just be for you, especially since they come in multiple sizes.
Sure, maybe this one is more for you, or somebody you know well enough to give a personal hair trimmer to. This body hair trimmer is waterproof and helps prevent skin getting nicked and hair getting b=pulled, and features adjustable guide combs for precision when doing personal grooming.
Lenovo Smart Clock 2
It’s not just a clock, as you probably already guessed. It’s also a wireless charging pad, so you can keep your phone and your giant-faced clock in one spot. The clock also can be synced up to podcasts and can set reminders, as well as operate as a sort of Siri alternative. It’s also compatible with Google Assistant enabled devices, which can be controlled right from the clock’s screen.
Tech can be for everyone, you just have to find the right gateway gift, namely: something very simple to use and understand. The best piece of tech for this purpose will meet a need and then make the used curious as to whether or not they might need or want some more tech in their life. Who knows? Maybe this is the gift that makes them a fun nerd.
