Shield your eyes and your privacy with Ocushield's Blue Light Screen Filters & Protectors. Expertly blocking harmful blue light and blacking out screens from side views, they offer a double layer of protection for the tech enthusiast. A thoughtful gift for the digital age.
EarPods with USB-C are an inexpensive way to give a piece of Apple this year, that's more interesting than the expensive polishing cloth. They're great stocking stuffers, or just as a second pair of 'buds for the gym.
Everyone had a Rubik's Cube growing up, so tie into that nostalgia while you're picking out gifts this year and get this great speed cube from Moyu. It's made with magnets for a smoother solve than traditional cubes, and will get their brains working overtime.
Everyone can do with another spare charger, especially if that charger allows them to wirelessly charge without having to fumble with cable plugs. This stylish charger from Anker is both affordable and able to charge Galaxy devices at 10W and all other at 5W.
Everyone with an iPhone could do with an extra charger, especially if they've recently upgraded to the USB-C iPhone 15 series. This MagSafe-compatible charger is perfect for fuss-free charging, and comes in multiple colors.
Everyone can do with a precision set of screwdrivers, and this iFixit kit is one of the best. It's got the most common tips needed for small electronics, and even a SIM card ejector that's part of the screwdriver handle so you won't lose it.
Remember when large capacity MicroSD cards where prohibitively expensive? We can, which is why we're amazed that you can get a two pack of 128GB MicroSD cards to stuff in someone's stocking this holiday at this price.
If you can’t decide what to get them, the safe option is always to get a gift card. That could be for their favorite gaming console to get a new game, or a general-purpose one from Amazon or another big retailer.
Just remember a couple of things. First, modern games start at $70, so if you intend it to be instead of a game, that’s the monetary value you should aim for.
And you might want to jazz up the gift, like inside this gift card snowglobe (don’t worry the card won’t touch the liquid inside).
Those are our top gifting picks for this holiday season, and we’re continuously updating our selection with new items as we come across them.
