It can be as fantastic or functional as the want! Youtube has infinite videos showing them all the different cool things they can do with this new art tech.
Super Charge It All
Having it all can sometimes be a pain. Everything has a different charger, and how do you charge everything without an extension cord or spreading your stuff out all over the house? Enter the 4 in 1 charging dock. Mag Chargers for everything! The watch, 2 phones, headphones!
The Gift Of Power
This Anker charging block charges everything – including your laptop – at a size that is barely noticeable, which means more power and more space! Maybe not the main gift, but a good stocking stuffer.
The Billion Dollar Art Gallery
This is the Billion Dollar Art Gallery! A device that plugs into your TV and displays the 500 most iconic paintings in the world. How cool is that?! Three months ago my wife and I made the decision to rearrange our living room where the TV wasn’t the main focus of the room. This is a perfect gift for just that! You can play a video gallery or choose a single image.
The Beanie We Have All Been Looking For
My wife and I are avid snowboarders. No more losing the earbuds on the slope with this beanie’s built-in bluetooth headphones. This is solid gift, not just for winter sports people, but also for anyone who works outside.
An HD Drone Without Ungodly Price Tag
Finally, a drone that doesn’t cost an arm and leg. Now this isn’t going to get you any jobs in Hollywood, but it certainly is more drone than most need. If someone in your life has been begging for their first drone and you just can’t justify the price? This is the answer. With a remote that connects to any phone they have the ability to fly more accurate and farther!
64,000 Five Star Reviews Says You’ll Love These Buds
I get it. I’m the same way. If it’s not Apple, Beats, or Bose, I typically look past them. Huge mistake with these Ear Buds by Tozo! Instead of paying literally hundreds of dollars for other headphones these little power houses come in under $40. The bass is deep without being muffled, great mid tones, and the treble doesn’t squeak or have that awful cheap sound! And at $40, if you lose one, like we all do, it’s not as big a deal because they are easily replaceable.
A FlashLight They Don’t Have To Hold In Their Mouth
We have all done it. You can’t see but you need your hands. So, what do we do? We put the flashlight in our mouths so we can hopefully get done fast whatever we have to do. With these flashlight gloves thats a thing of the past. Give these to that person in your house that insists on fixing it themselves. We won’t mention names.
Real Life Space Jam Ball
The original Space Jam with Michael Jordon was my favorite movie when it first came out. It had everything – great villains, classic cartoon characters, Michael Jordon, and that really cool glowing ball that was supposed to be holding all the talent of all the best basketball players! This LED lit basketball looks just like it, but it also has function.
Pain Free Living, What Better Gift Is There Than That
I have a vibrating massage ball that I paid over $120 for. The Hyper Ice and Theragun brands are way up there in price as well. This little massage ball on Amazon is a fraction of the price and does the exact same thing. This thing has saved my hips and low back countless times! Perfect gift for athletes or recreational exercisers.
My wife is a massage therapist. She does a lot of different therapies and told me she uses this massage gun before every massage. It loosens and relaxes tight muscles, and increases blood flow, allowing her to go straight to therapy. Normally the first half of the massage is spent getting the body prepped to go into deep tissue. From personal experience, doing this before a massage also makes deep tissue far less painful. It also helps relieve neck and shoulder tension. Who wouldn’t like that?
Your Private Theatre Everywhere
Screen magnifiers are really cool. It’s a speaker with a huge 12 inch magnifying glass. Letting them turn their phone into their own little private theatre. It also works with handheld gaming systems like the Nintendo Switch! Making it the perfect travel set up for your little gamer. Everything folds up and packs tightly. So instead of buying a phone, tablet, and laptop for thousands of dollars, you can get them this screen magnifier speaker combo for well under $40!
Phone camera tech has gotten crazy good lately, but, they still get blurry when you zoom in close. They never really come out the way you see them with your eyes. With this telescope lens for phones they can capture all those shots! Perfect gift for aspiring photographers, or that person in your life who just loves taking photos with their phone.
The TV Killer
Most people have some streaming stick or device of some sort. I’ve tried them all. My favorite is this Roku Stick. I have a “smart” tv, but the software sometimes freezes up or it’s just confusing because they try to put everything on the same screen at once. With the Roku, you can have all your streaming subscriptions, include Apple tv+, Netflix, Disney, Hulu, Prime, and many others all in the same place. The remote is universal and works with all TVs whether they are smart or not, and comes with popular streaming service buttons right on the remote for effortless access. I gave one of these to my parents last year for Christmas and 2 weeks later they cancelled their expensive TV service.
Easy Button For DIY Family Photoshoots
The most frustrating thing about DIY family photo shoots is getting everyone in the photo or rushing to beat the timer (just to see the photo didn’t come out right). This super cheap button connects to all smart phones and takes video or photos with the push of a button. Now you won’t have to ask random strangers to take a photo.
This sleep mask will make who ever you give it to feel like royalty. My wife got me into sleep masks. I felt like it was a little bogie but after using it once and finally being able to sleep for more than 6 hours at time I was hooked. This particular one is my favorite. I like the guided sleep meditations, and they have built in headphones for side sleepers.
A Mug Lovers Best Friend
Finally someone who gets it. This mug warmer comes with a cup but you can use your own mug! It’s awesome! I have so many mugs that make me laugh in the morning. Most not appropriate to repeat here. But, finally being able to have a tech gadget that works with MY mugs? Perfect coffee mug lover gift.
There is a power bank for everything nowadays. The problem is when you forget to charge the charger! I think I have enough juice before I leave the house and halfway through a charge the power bank dies. This Solar Power Bank is the answer. They can both charge it and use direct sunlight with the built solar panel to have all day power, pun intended.
Secret Agent Tracking Unleashed
Tile makes really great trackers without the hefty price tag. From keys, luggage, backpacks, and purses, you’ll want a tracker on all of your important items in case you misplace them! This would make a thoughtful gift as a stocking stuffer this holiday season.
So, not your first thought when pondering what gift to get right? Can I just say how awesome the Toilight is!? Ever get up in the middle of the night, or early morning, and need to go to the bathroom, but don’t want to turn on the light? You know if you do you’ll blind yourself with the lights and will never get back to sleep. It’s just a gift that will have to come with a little explanation, and maybe a gift card.
Whether you’re spending time with friends and family in the ocean, river, lake, or pool, this wireless bluetooth speaker will up the vibe every time. Great sound output and you’ll never have to worry about it getting water-logged. Score!
With a wifi extender you’ll get powerful wifi no matter where you are in the house. Whether it’s playing games online or video streaming outside in the yard. This wifi extender is a practical gift that all will appreciate! The excitement just wont come until they get on their tablets at the far end of the house.
