90 Useful Tech Gifts

From Solar-Powered Phone Chargers to Laptop-Inspired Mirrors

— November 15, 2013 — Tech
These tech gifts ensure more excitement than getting a pair of socks for Christmas. Because technology is a part of so many aspects of our lives now, this means that there is no shortage of novel gifts that the recipient will actually find helpful.

If you know someone who has an extensive home theatre system but is always juggling remotes, a universal remote control is a device that will make their lives a whole lot simpler and less cluttered. Or, there are tons of ways technology can come into the kitchen to simplify the cooking process.

Because these tech gifts are so diverse, they make great gifts for a wide range of ages. If you're still completely pressed for ideas, novel iPhone cases and accessories are a fairly fail-safe way to go for Apple users.
