Holiday Shopping Ideas for the Techie in Your Life

A lot of people feel a bit of anxiety when choosing gifts for the holiday season. The following list of holiday ideas for techies will make it easier for you to choose gifts for the tech enthusiasts in your life. Whether they love novelty items for the home or advanced technology for security, you will find something on this list.

Ember Mug 2 Keeps Beverages at the Perfect Temperature

A cup of coffee can lose its warmth rather quickly on a cold winter morning. Even indoors, coffee, tea and other hot drinks cool off fast. Once they reach a certain temperature, they became pretty much undrinkable.

The newest Ember Mug can keep hot beverages between 120 and 145 degrees F (50 top 62.5 degrees C) all day when placed on a charging coaster. Without the charger, it keeps drinks hot for up to 1.5 hours.

Want a fancier option? Ember also makes a metallic collection in stainless steel, copper, gold and rose gold.

You can also choose a travel version that keeps drinks hot for up to three hours and has a display that shows the beverage’s temperature.

Backslash Fit Smart Yoga Mat

The Backslash Fit smart yoga mat combines cutting-edge technology with yoga traditions. The mat comes with some unbelievable features, including:

  • A surface that actually improves grip when exposed to sweat.
  • Yoga routines that stream from the mat to smart speakers to guide your practice.
  • Self-rolling. That’s right. It rolls itself up at the end of each yoga session.

If you need holiday ideas for the techie who wants to get in better shape, this is your go-to option.

Clutch V2 Smartphone Charger

Smartphone batteries have become much more powerful over the last decade. At the same time, app developers have kept up with the advancements by making more sophisticated games, video streaming services and other applications that require more power.

Even with longer battery lives, there’s a good chance that people who use their smartphones throughout the day come close to losing power. When that happens, the Clutch Charger comes to the rescue.

Clutch stands out as one of the most useful holiday ideas for techies because anyone can carry it. The charger has the same size as a credit card, so it can slide into any wallet. It comes with an attached charging cable that’s compatible with any device.

The next time someone’s mobile device comes dangerously close to losing power, the Clutch solves that problem within minutes.

Dyson Lightcycle Task Light Simulates Natural Daylight

Leave it to Dyson to find a way to reinvent lighting. The Dyson Lightcycle is the most advanced lamp that you can buy for home use. It has an unbelievable number of features, including:

  • Three-Axis Glide motion that puts the light precisely where you need it.
  • An energy-saving motion sensor that turns the light on when you approach and turns off after five minutes of inactivity.
  • A blue light regulator that filters out the lightwaves that can make it difficult for your body to prepare for sleep.
  • Automatically adjustable lighting conditions to prevent eye strain.

Granted, the Lightcycle comes at a high price (about $600), so it’s not something you would buy for an acquaintance. However, you might make that investment for a close friend or family member who would benefit from better lighting conditions. Plus, Dyson promises that the light will last 60 years. That's six decades of easy use without so much as replacing a bulb.

LandAirSea 54 GPS Location Sharing and Tracking System

Tech enthusiasts often accumulate innovative gadgets that cost quite a bit of money. Maybe they buy the newest long-range electric vehicles or even watersport devices like Flyboards, Hoverboards and water jetpacks.

These and similar items are very fun to own. Their high values also make them common targets of theft.

This holiday season, you can help the techie in your life protect their cherished vehicles and gadget by giving them a GPS tracking device like the LandAirSea 54. The LandAirSea 54 location sharing and tracking system has an internal magnet that makes it easy to hide on any metal surface. Its small size (0.945 inches tall by 2.275 inches wide) also makes it a stealthy option that potential thieves will not spot until it's too late. This waterproof, dustproof GPS tracker has a battery life up to six months long on “low power mode.”

The devices accompanying software lets your gift recipient create geofence alerts. If someone tries to take the GPS tracker outside of a defined perimeter, the owner will get an alert via text or email.

The LandAirSea 54 is the perfect holiday idea for techies who already seem to have everything they could possibly want.
