Here are some helpful suggestions for gifts to please even the most grizzled of gadget veterans. We might even make it free for you — for the Marvel superfan, we’re giving away this Iron Man messenger bag from Think Geek, which normally goes for $100.

They might have the smartwatch they want, but they might not have a watch that looks smart. TMBR makes some gorgeous watches that incorporate wood, leather, and stainless steel. They’re handcrafted, and you can order an engraving on the back of the case for a bit of personalization.

DxO One Digital Connected Camera


This is a pretty cool compromise between getting high-end picture quality and staying within budget. The DxO One is a mini 20.2 MP camera that becomes as customizable as a DSLR when plugged into an iPhone using a wireless connection or the Lightning connector on the camera. With a f/1.8 lens, it’s also well-suited to low-light conditions, and it has a microSD card slot so its pictures don’t take up all of the iPhone’s storage space.

Dyson 360 Eye Robot Vacuum


Dyson, of the super-charged, super-expensive vaccuums, finally got into the robot game a couple years back. The Dyson 360 Eye can create virtual maps of a room, then chart the path of least resistance, helping to save on energy costs over time. The robot smarts are combined with Dyson’s top-notch suction tech to create a killer robot vaccuum. Hopefully not literally.
