Multi-Use, Gadget HoverBar for iPad, iPad Pro (9.7″), iPad Air (1/2), iPad Mini (1/2/3)/iPad (2/3/4), with Adjustable Arm and Versatile Clamp.
By: Twelve South

Editor's Note

We have one of these…and it’s a lifesaver…hands down. It’s a simple product and concept really. This is an adjustable arm with a customizable (i.e., scalable) clasp on one end and a thick clamp on the other. The clasp can be fitted to hold and position virtually any tablet (iPads, Android Tablets, Kindles, etc.), while the clamp can be attached to the side of a desk, the neck of a computer or shelf. It’s useful for both office and home work environments and is a great alternative to that book you’re probably using to prop up your phone or tablet. We see you. Overall, it’s one the great, solid gift ideas for techies of this collection and works well as that practical gift / gadget for the techie that has everything.

iBridge 3, External Mobile Memory for iOS 64GB.
By: Leef

Editor's Note

Another irreducibly useful gadget gift for techies — this slim, lightweight gadget functions as an on-the-go external memory unit for phones that allows you to quickly move and share photos, movies, and documents off your iPhone or iPad to free up space at virtually any moment you need. It also enables you to automatically backup content and contacts so you never lose your essential data. On one end of the gadget is a male micro-USB connector (that plugs into your mobile device), while tucked away inside the main section of the unit is a standard USB that can be easily plugged into a laptop for quick storage and backup. It’s super light — at only .5 ounces — and seamlessly wraps behind your phone, not adding any cumbersome, third-party technology. In our opinion, this awesome gadget fits into the category of ‘that thing you didn’t know existed, but wish you had’. When it comes to the best gift ideas for techies — especially those techies that have everything — we’re willing to bet they don’t have something like this.

Tile Mate & Slim Combo Pack, Key/Wallet/Item Finder, 4-pack with 2 Tile Slim and 2 Tile Mate Bluetooth Trackers.
By: Tile

Editor's Note

Tile is a pretty new startup in the everyday carry tech / gadgets and productivity space. In brief, Tile is a lightweight and portable item finder that can be attached to anything from a pair of keys, a wallet, a backpack, bike, etc. After it’s affixed to your accessory, you set it up and connect it with your smart phone and Bluetooth technology does the rest. There’s a bunch of other cool features once you download their app and connect it with your phone — everything from a community ‘lost and found’ to integrated map. Our logic in selecting this product: techies have tech and tech oftentimes gets lost. This product is a solution to that problem. In the realm of the best gift ideas for techies, we give this gadget high marks.

Ivy Smarter Kit: Apple HomeKit Enabled Smart LED Lighting Kit, in Black.
By: Nanoleaf

Editor's Note

This futuristic light bulb — that looks like it’s part of some kind of technology in Batman’s Batcave — is perhaps the most hi-tech home light bulb on the market. Here’s why. Virtually the entire product is customizable: everything down to the shape and operational commands can be tailored to what you want. The bulb itself plugs in like a regular bulb, using highly energy efficient LEDs, but is distinct in the way it can be integrated with your smart phone. Once you connect it to their app, you can assign each bulb a set of commands that control brightness levels, moods and more. There’s super helpful video that explains what this gadget can do if you want to click through and learn more. Overall, it’s one of those stellar gift ideas for techies that like to deck out their home.

SoundCore Mini Bluetooth Speakers 5W with 15-Hour Playtime, Super-portable with 66-Foot Bluetooth Range, FM Radio, Enhanced Bass and Micro USB Charging Cable, in Black.
By: Anker

Editor's Note

In our opinion, this mini Bluetooth speaker by Anker is a perfect gift if you’re shopping on a budget. It’s super portable and gives you all the functionality you’d see in a more expensive, brand-name Bluetooth speaker, but at half the price. Everyone can find good use of a speaker, so we think it categorizes as one of those solid gift ideas for techies.
