2017 was an exciting year for new releases of technology. Many new products were released this year that range in prices. Check out some tech gift ideas below, from stocking stuffers and fun small gifts, to bigger gifts. Whether looking to spend $10, or splurge with $300, there is a great gadget to purchase as a gift.

Stocking Stuffers

Popsockets – $10-$15

Popsockets are phone accessories that can be used as phone grip or stand. They come in a wide variety of colors and patterns and start at just $10. There is even an option to create a custom popsocket.

Bop H2O Speaker – $21.99

This bluetooth speaker is small, but powerful and water resistant. That means you can listen to music with the speaker in the shower, or on a raft in a pool. The charge lasts a long time and is a great gift for anyone.

Willing to splurge a little?

Amazon Echo Dot – $49.99

The Echo Dot is easy to use and is extremely helpful – from playing music to looking up a synonym for a word. The Echo Dot is a small household piece of technology that is beneficial to the entire family.  

Fitbit Zip – $59.95

The Fitbit Zip easily fits in a pocket and tracks steps, distance and burned calories. The device also has a tap display and a long battery life.

The Main Gift

urBeats3 Earbuds – $99.95

These earbuds by Apple Beats have great sound and can be ordered with a standard headphone plug-in or a lightning connector. That means, with an iPhone 7 or later, there is no need to deal with those pesky dongles.

Apple TV – $149.00

This is a gift for the whole family! Enjoy watching your TV, Netflix, Hulu and other apps all in one place. There is also an app store where games and other fun apps can be downloaded. The price may seem daunting, but the product will be used a lot.

GoPro Hero Session – $149.00

The Session is a simplified and less expensive version of the standard GoPro camera. This is a great gift for any adventurous person who loves to spend time outdoors and make videos.

Hopefully this list is a helpful aid for Christmas shopping for friends and family! Happy Holidays!
