6 of the Best Websites for Tech Gifts
Clever gadgets that are designed to make your life easier really are gifts that keep on giving. But who has the time (or um, the upper body strength) to lug the latest must-have device around town? Here, six stellar websites to get the perfect tech gift for every person on your holiday list delivered right to your door.
Looking for a tech gift but not sure exactly what you’re after? Try ThinkGeek as your first port of call. Offering a wide selection of innovative gifts ranging from toys and clothing to games and accessories, this one-stop shop is chock-full of geekie delights. Star Wars USB charger, anyone?
Let your geek flag fly at this tech news blog’s shopping site that features great deals on cool gadgets, software and online courses for the whole family. Think: an app-building course for your younger sibling, a barbecue smoker box for dad and a bluetooth shower speaker for you. Easy peasy.
Filled with nifty accessories and chic design pieces, this curated site selects the coolest work, outdoor, home and fashion buys geared toward the men in your life. But don’t worry: The products are stylish enough that you won’t mind having them around, like this walnut alarm clock or this tech hoodie.
We love finding out about the latest must-have tech products, but too often they come with a pretty steep price tag. DealExtreme offers great gadgets and cool accessories for lower prices (and free shipping on most items), including a special section that features hundreds of items for under $5. Handy product reviews and forums will make sure you’re getting a good deal (like a wireless charging pad for $3).
You already turn to the retail giant for everything from toilet paper to Tempranillo, so it only makes sense that you check it out for its huge array of tech goods. Looking for a Roomba for your friend who just got a dog? How about noise-canceling headphones for your work colleague or a key finder for mom? Yep, Amazon has it all and at unbeatable prices with super-speedy delivery options for those last-minute gifts.
But the one thing you’ll have a hard time finding on Amazon? Its rival smart speaker and assistant system, Google Home, which gives you the ability to get answers, play music, organize your day and control your smart home. Order this genius device up at Best Buy instead and then enjoy the thank-yous you’ll get all year long. (And there’s also a great range of entertainment and home gadgets available for order, too.)
