9 Last Minute Tech Gift Ideas That Are Sure To Please:
For the person who doesn’t like loud TVs…
Get them a TV-B-Gone.
With a TV-B-Gone you can switch off those annoyingly loud TV’s when you’re out in public areas such as restaurants, airports, bars, etc. It’s essentially a universal remote that uses pulses of invisible light to control the on and off button of almost any TV. Unfortunately it doesn’t give you control over the channels being viewed on the TV (I’m sorry to all the people out there who thought this was the answer to your remote controlling spouse) but it does give you ‘on’ or ‘off’ power. If your wife is tired of having to hound your teenager to turn off the TV and come for dinner, then this is the perfect gift for her! It’s small and compact and comes with a built in key ring so you can store it in your pocket or on your keychain for quick, stealthy access.
For the person who constantly forgets where they put their keys…
Get them a Tile Key Finder and App.
Never loose your keys, wallet, purse or anything ever again with the Tile Key Finder and App. The Tile is a tiny Bluetooth tracker that can be attached to your keychain, put in your wallet, or fixed to any item that you need to keep track of. With it’s handy and easy-to-use app you can find everyday items in seconds by checking it’s last known location or by triggering the Tile to ring loudly through the app. The Tile itself also has a manual button that triggers the app on your phone to ring so if you’ve misplaced it so you can locate it easily. It works both ways! Pretty handy if you ask us!
For the curious person…
Get them a USB Microscope.
Curiosity runs wild with this digital USB Microscope allowing users to view items at 250x magnification. The microscope uses a webcam chipset and sensor supported by any operating system and has an LED halo light with brightness adjustment control to help see magnified items more clearly.
For the person who always likes to be prepared…
Get them the Antigravity Micro-Start XP-1.
The Antigravity Micro-Start XP-1 is a briefcase-sized portable jump starter and personal power supply with enough power to jump start all motorcycles, power-sport vehicles and even V8 trucks. It comes with built in USB outputs to charge laptops, cell phones, tablets and more. With just one charge, this little power supply will juice up your cell phone multiple times and give your laptop at least another 2.5 hours of battery life. It also has a built-in high-power LED flashlight making it perfect for any vehicle emergency or even camping trips.
For the person who loves to cook…
While crock-pots are known for being set and then left, the Belkin WeMo Crock-Pot keeps you connected to your delicious entree all day long. Keep track of your cooking wherever you go on your smartphone with a simple app that allows you to monitor and adjust cooking temperatures, set timers, and turn on and off the cooker on the fly. With this product, you’ll never have overdone slow cooked items again!
For the person with a green thumb…
Get them a Miracle-Gro AeroGarden.
The Miracle-Gro AeroGarden is an aeroponics garden that lets you grow herbs, vegetables, and other leafy greens completely indoors, all year round. The system is mostly automated and is soil-free allowing you to grow plants 5 times faster than you would with soil. So just add some water and nutrients, and watch your garden grow!
For the person who values top-knotch home security…
Get them the Ring Video Doorbell System.
The Ring Video Doorbell is a WiFi connected doorbell that allows you to answer the door from anywhere with your smartphone. It features an HD camera with night vision providing a clear view from your front door day or night, two-way talk capabilities, motion detection and cloud video recording. Check up on your home while on vacation, at work or anywhere else for that matter.
For the person who still likes to put pen to paper…
Get them a LiveScribe SmartPen.
The LiveScribe SmartPen writes like a normal ballpoint pen but the built in camera and Bluetooth technology digitizes whatever you draw and sends everything to your smartphone or tablet. Pretty smart for an average looking pen!
For the person who likes to make a fashion statement…
Get them a Ringly.
A Ringly is a piece of wearable technology designed to be worn on your hand in the discrete form of a ring. While it may not look like much to the ordinary eye, this fashion statement uses Bluetooth technology to send your hand gentle vibrations when your phone transmits a programmed notification. It essentially acts as a filtering system to only disrupt you to the notifications you want to receive, which is perfect for those who want to disconnect from their phone but still need to be reached for just in case purposes.
If these ideas don’t get you excited, consider planning a small trip or getting passes to an activity for your loved one. No matter what you end up getting your friends and family for Christmas this year, remember that it’s the thought that counts. Don’t stress yourself out trying to find the “perfect” present. At the end of the day the holidays are truly about spending time with loved ones and time together is really the best present of all!
