10 Perfectly Geeky Gift Ideas For The Tech Head In Your Life
If you have that certain someone in your life who is a tech-head then they are going to love these perfect geeky tech-head gifts! Every holiday season, I always have at least two techie gifts on my wishlist and thought I’d share some of my favorites with you.
Ok, so let’s start with this one.
1 – Nerdwax – Yep, there’s finally a solution to keep your glasses from slipping off of your nose! Nerdwax works by creating a tacky layer of friction between your glasses and your skin, so as longs as your glasses touch your face and are properly fitted then nerdwax will help keep them in place!
I love this idea. My glasses, as well as everyone I know who wears them, are constantly slipping and sliding and falling off of our faces. It’s so frustrating. This is the perfect solution! No more slipping and sliding – buh bye!
2 – Logitech MX Master Wireless Mouse: When it comes to wireless mice, I must have the latest technology. We all spend endless hours on the computer, why not make it the most comfortable and exciting way to navigate? This mouse is insanely delicious!
DUAL CONNECTIVITY AND EASY-SWITCH TECHNOLOGY – Connect this performance mouse via the included Logitech Unifying Receiver or Bluetooth® Smart wireless technology. Thanks to Logitech Easy-Switch™ technology pair up to three devices and easily switch between them with the touch of a button.
3 – Tile Mate – Key Finder. Phone Finder. Anything Finder. Now, this is right up anyone’s alley. Do you have a scatter brain friend or family member who’s always misplacing something? Or maybe it’s you! I know this is on my wishlist this year.
- The world’s best-selling Bluetooth tracker just got 25% smaller. Tile Mate easily loops onto key chains or attaches to anything you don’t want to lose so you can find it fast.
- Ring your things. Use your smartphone to make your Tile Mate ring when it’s nearby but out of sight.
- Find your phone. Can’t find your phone? Simply double press the button on your Tile Mate to make your phone ring – even on silent!
- See where you had it last. The easy-to-use, free Tile app remembers the last time and place it saw your Tile, so if you left it somewhere, you’ll always know where to look.
- Ask others to help. Your Tile isn’t where you left it? You can anonymously enlist help in the Tile community. With over 5 million Tile devices sold, it is the world’s largest lost and found network.
4 – Uber Gift Card ($25+) I know so many people who take Uber daily. This gift would be so appreciated and loved. What a great idea. Gift cards are sold in retail chains such as Walmart, Target, and CVS.
5 – GoPro HERO5 Session – I can’t tell you how much we love ours. While I don’t have this exact model, I love using ours as a dashcam.
There’s nothing like it. The GoPro HERO5 Session’s features voice controls which make it simply easy to use and so much more helpful. This model shoots in 4K and is waterproof even without a case.
- Stunning 4K video and 10MP photos in Single, Burst and Time Lapse modes.
- Durable by design, HERO5 Session is waterproof to 33ft (10m) without a housing.
- Additional GoPro HERO5 Session Features + Benefits below on item page.
- A single press of the Shutter button powers the camera on and starts recording automatically.
6 – The Plume is a router replacement that promises to boost Internet access throughout your home and look stunning while doing it.
One Plume puck goes into a modem and the rest plug into outlets, distributing Wi-Fi. The hexagonal discs are attractive and come in champagne, silver, and onyx. Plume isn’t a killer router. It’s a router-killer.
Today’s routers are the main cause of WiFi frustration—they only work (sometimes) when placed in the perfect spot (as if there is such a thing).
They aren’t equipped to handle the needs of a busy home filled with WiFi-hungry devices and ever-increasing interference.
Plume puts the router in the cloud, adapting in real-time to the devices and habits in your home.
Your connection should be fast, reliable and everywhere you need it, all the time – period. Plume is WiFi with brain power.
8 – Wall Outlet Space Heater – Now that’s it’s getting a bit chilly out this is the perfect gift for anyone who needs to take the nippy winter chill out of the air. I love how it easily plugs into any outlet! This is the compact space heater that plugs in flush with a wall outlet and heats rooms up to 250′ sq. Prongs built into the back of the heater plug directly into a three-prong outlet, freeing up floor space and eliminating the need to run cables.
The 400-watt heater has a digital thermostat that allows users to easily select a precise temperature between 60 F and 90 F, not merely high or low heat settings like lesser models. A timer can be set to turn the heater on automatically, ensuring a room or office is warm before you enter, and an automatic cut-off prevents overheating.
I hope you were inspired by these awesome tech gifts. I know I always struggle trying to decide what to get folks for the holidays. Be sure to check out my other holiday wishlists too!
