There are some people who will naturally unwrap a present and sigh at the sight of clothing, no matter how many Gucci logo embellishments. And while you may not be able to plug these folks into the steezy source, you can spark a grateful smile with some shiny new gadgets to play around with.
From smart devices to cutting-edge drones, below are the gifts that’ll both bring grandad into the 21st century and connect even the most technologically-advanced millennial.
AIAIAI TMA 2 Modular Wireless Headphones
AIAIAI’s TMA-2 came out on top when we pitted them against the industry-leading wireless headphones at Highsnobiety HQ. Personal audio quality doesn’t get much better than this.
AIAIAI C11 Cable
And for those days when you’re looking to plug-in, AIAIAI’s brand new neon yellow cables are the dopest way to do it.
We all know someone who needs this. Attach the tile sport to your keys or stick it in your wallet and ring it from anywhere within a 200 ft range to streamline your mornings.
Plusus Life Link Lightning Cable
Forget about gimmick power banks, this is the world’s thinnest USB charge cable (about the width of two credit cards), for easy on-the-go iPhone and iPad charging.
Take this year’s holiday photos from above. Concede to the robots and gift this easy-to-use EACHINE drone, which takes high-quality video and stills from angles no human can replicate.
HHV x Carhartt WIP x UDG Sling Bag
This is the perfect gift for the DJ on your shopping list. The collaborative bag is dubbed the “limousine” of record trolleys, boasting ample space for vinyl and additional equipment and a 9-LED aluminium flashlight for when they’re behind the decks in the club.
Cavalier Maverick Speaker
Smart speakers are becoming an essential, but they generally look pretty ugly up on your countertop. Cavalier’s Maverick does away with that, using premium leather and other quality materials to create an aesthetically beautiful speaker complete with great audio quality and built-in Amazon Alexa tech.
Oculus Go Standalone Virtual Reality Headset
For the most future-forward techies on your list, this Oculus VR headset is one of the coolest out there right now. Warning: Comes with risk of disengagement from all holiday activities.
Leica Sofort Instant Camera
What happens when you merge the technical prowess of Leica with instant gratification? The perfect gift for any point-and-shoot photographer.
Native Instruments Traktor Kontrol S2
Buying for a budding DJ? Gift them this Native Instruments turntable for bass-heavy breakdowns and steppy synth renditions of all your favorite holiday anthems.
