When it comes to shopping for tech gifts, in some ways, this holiday season might be the most difficult season ever! That is because with a plethora of smartphones, tablets, laptops and other devices having been released in 2012, the sheer amount of gadgets to choose from is exceptionally overwhelming this year.
With that said, there are some hot technology trends that are worth considering when you go shopping for the woman in your life this year. These gadgets are sure to inspire her and even impress her by thinking outside of the box.
Health & Fitness Pedometers
The fitness gadget category has really exploded this year. Gadgets like FitBit’s One and Striiv’s Play don’t just help track your exercise and fitness routine, but they help encourage a healthier lifestyle. Whether the gift-receiver in your life is a fitness buff or just someone who likes to walk a lot, these devices, which cost under $100 are a great way to inspire them to be more active.
2012 has been a great year for accessories. More so than ever before, your smartphone and tablet is lending itself to becoming a fashion piece. Whether it’s the glitter-coated Case-Mate Glam case, or Speck’s sportier Burton Fabshell case for iPhone 5, Best Buy has a slew of cases for every type of personality. Best of all, a smartphone case always makes a great stocking stuffer.
Similarly to cases, headphones are too becoming a fashion statement. Philips Citiscape collection includes some great sounding over the ear headphones that won’t break the bank. While pricier headphones, like Monster’s Inspiration headphones are straight off the cat-walk with their interchangeable headbands. Meanwhile, a pair of in-ears always make great stocking stuffers too.
Portable Bluetooth audio systems are not just for geeks anymore. These small wireless systems have come a long way and can really sound great, despite being purse friendly. The Beats by Dr. Dre Pill, and Jabra Solemate are two such portable speakers that offer powerful sound without taking up much space on your desk.
Ultimately, the key to getting her a great gift this holiday season is to find one that will inspire them throughout the year. And these four trends are sure to be hits.
