10. Echo Dot
The Echo Dot is a smart speaker, made by Amazon, that allows the user to utilize voice commands for everything from ordering food to playing music. These devices can also be used in conjunction with other smart devices and some home security systems.
9. Google Home
Google home is an integrated home system from Google. It is similar to the Echo Dot, but is powered by Google and provides even more services. It can be used to do little things such as controlling the lights and temperature. The best part is that these systems usually run under $200 for baseline models.
8. Charging Phone Case
These days, there are a number of companies offering cell phone cases that keep your phone charged while also protecting it.
I know what you’re thinking: i have a smartphone, I have a laptop, why do I need a tablet? Tablets are very convenient and a great for the dive into digital media. Make sure to get them a stylus pen and relevant software to go with the tablet to really tie the gift together into something personal.
6. Home Sound System
Long gone are the 8-piece sound systems of old. Modern sounds systems look like nothing more than a solitary speaker but pack an audio punch sure to be appreciated by the music lover.
5. Wireless Earbuds/Headphones
For the athlete always in the gym or the busy person on the go, these earbuds are endlessly useful. The wireless benefit also avoids the annoying tangle of headphone cords!
4. Pocket Protector
Not to be confused with the old-school pocket protectors that keep pens from leaking on your shirt (also very useful), these actually protect your devices from remote hackers, as well as environmental dangers such as water or heat.
3. Smart Light Bulbs
Control light color, brightness, and hue via your smart phone with smart light bulbs! These little magic glass balls are instant mood enhancers. By employing chromotherapy, these lightbulbs offer relaxation or energizing benefits depending on the color selection. An enchanting gift for your loved ones who tend to be more holistic.
2. E- Reader
Don’t knock it until you try it! Modern e-readers offer amazing capabilities like music capabilities and “paper light” mode. This mode makes the e-reader easy on the eyes by emitting a soft, natural lighting. Stay up reading at night without bothersome lamp light or traditional screen lighting that will make you stay up all night.
Smartwatches are becoming popular and it’s easy to see why. They allow the user to control all of their smart devices right from the wrist.
