Holiday shopping is in full swing and finding the perfect gift can always be a challenge. Tech holiday gifts are always popular and there are a wide variety of products and price ranges to meet all needs. I compiled some of the top holiday technology gifts to make your shopping a little easier.
Top tech holiday gifts
Ok, there are countless tech gadgets you can buy for loved ones. You can get fun little presents to use as stocking stuffers all the way up to gaming consoles and drones. So how do you choose the perfect gift? I researched what some of the hottest gadgets are right now and broke them out by price and age. This list is a great way to get you started on your holiday shopping adventures.
We all love getting fun things in our stockings. I mean socks, nail polish, lip gloss, and candy are all great but who doesn’t love a nice tech gadget thrown in? Here are a few to add to your stockings.
Portable Battery Charger
We are always having to charge our phones and other devices. When you are on the go it is convenient to have a small, lightweight charger to take with you. There are slim ones that can fit in a pocket to slightly bigger ones that can charge multiple devices at once.
There are many different good brands. One I have used and had good luck with is Anker. Since we are talking about stocking stuffers, smaller size and a lower price were key. My choice:
Anker Power Core+ mini lipstick-sized portable charger $15.99 on Amazon.
Key features: High-speed charging, ultra-compact, adds one full charge to most phones, comes with a warranty.
Lego DC Comics Superman alarm clock
This is so cute that I want one! I am sure kids would love at least one of the DC superheroes. It also comes in Star Wars and other characters. Darth Vadar is cool.
Lego DC Comics Super Heros Superman mini figure light-up alarm clock $19.19 on Amazon.
Key features: Digital LCD alarm clock, 9.5 inches tall, moveable arms and legs, alarm and snooze functions. 2 AAA batteries. Ages 6+.
JBL Go Portable Wireless speaker
A good Bluetooth speaker for when you don’t want to use headphones. It is compatible with iOS and Android devices.
JBL Go Portable Wireless speaker $36 on Amazon.
Key features: Built-in strap hook and carrying strap, charge at any USB port, connects to most devices via headphone output.
Tribe DC Comics Wonder Woman USB and key ring
Who wouldn’t want to carry Wonder Woman around with them to class or work? This USB drive is also a key ring. If Wonder Woman is not your favorite they have other DC, Marvel and Star Wars characters.
DC Comics Wonder Woman USB 16 GB $7.49 on Amazon.
Key Features: Officially licensed 16GB to store your files/photos, comes with cap.
Kids Tech Holiday gifts
There are so many fun tech gadgets for kids. I picked out a few that were top on different sites. Of course you know if it is a hot item it sells out fast.
Fingerlings Interactive Baby Monkey
This is definitely one of the items to get this holiday season. They come in different colors with different names and are interactive pets.
Fingerlings Interactive Baby Monkey – Finn $14.99 at Target.

Key Features: Complete Droid Kit includes all electronic blocks, Droid parts, 9V battery, and free app.
KD Interactive Aura Drone with Glove Controller
Flying a drone just got easier with Aura because you are the controller. This is very cool as the Gesturebotics glove that you wear is what controls the drone using hand commands.
KD Interactive Aura Drone with Glove Controller $93 with a 15% coupon on Amazon.
Key features: Fly forward and backward, left and right, change altitude and even perform tricks like a sideways flip, all with a simple wave of the hand. Includes Auto Takeoff, Auto Hover, and Auto Landing.

Adult Tech Holiday gifts
As you can imagine, gaming is big in tech gifts this season. I picked out a few gifts that were top sellers on various sites.
This is definitely one of the hot items to get this holiday season. This is the red and blue version but it also comes in grey. It was full price on both Amazon and Target. Maybe it will go on sale after Christmas.

Tech Gifts Galore
I hope that will give you some ideas on your technology gifts this year. I did not include TVs, laptops and things like that as there are thousands to choose from and all are based on your personal likes. My suggestion if you are looking for those items is to go to Amazon or your favorite store’s site and search on best sellers in those categories. That will help you see which ones are popular and have higher ratings.
There are a few things I didn’t add in since they had a more limited audience, but are worth a mention. If you are an Apple user then the Apple airpods wireless earphones are a hot item this year at about $160 at Target. Another one I keep hearing about is the Bibo barmaid mixed drink maker. It goes for $179.99 on Amazon and is popular.
Hope you find some unique tech holiday gifts for all the members of your family. Good luck!
