This list of gifts would make perfect stocking stuffers or gifts for guys and girls who love gadgets. Most of these are items that I’ve gifted in the past, own myself, or have on my wishlist, so they are all gadgets that I approve of (and have the reviews to back it up).
- Swiss+Tech UKCSB-1 Utili-Key 6-in-1 Keychain Multi-Tool
My husband loves this little multi-tool. It includes multiple screwdrivers, a bottle opener, straight blade knife, and serrated blade knife. It’s easy to clip on and off a key ring and is the same size/appearance as a key when folded (as a matter of fact, he accidentally took it through security at an airport and they didn’t catch it).
- Waterproof Case with Padding for the NOOKcolor eBook Reader from Barnes and Noble, Blue
This is on my wishlist so I can read at the beach or pool without worrying about ruining my Nook. They have a variety of colors and cases for other e-readers suggested on the page. This one is padded too, so my Nook will be a little safer.
- Dicapac Underwater Camera Case 6.3″ x 4.1″
I’ve used this on 2 trips to Hawaii that included snorkeling, snuba, and swimming in waterfalls, as well as playing in the pool and ocean. I’ve also taken it to Florida and used it locally for kayaking and such. I like how I canstill zoom in with my lens because of the zoom cap that screws on and I’ve taken excellent underwater photos (depends more on the water clarity). My Sony DSC-W350 14.1MP Digital Camera with 4x Wide Angle Zoom with Optical Steady Shot Image Stabilization and 2.7 inch LCD (Blue) is smaller than the bag, so a bigger camera would fit just fine. There are enough seals that I know it’ll be safe for me to submerge for long periods of time. I recommend testing it with just a paper towel inside a few times so you know if you’re sealing it correctly.
- Cocoon CPG10BK GRID-IT Organizer, 12 x 8 Inch
This picture doesn’t do this product justice. I looked it up after seeing it in a magazine. You can basically organize all sorts of things in this elastic grid so you don’t have to dig around in your purse, luggage, or laptop bag for the things that are hard to find in the bottom of a bag (cell phone, cords, pens, camera, gum) – literally anything small enough or that you want to keep organized. These are available in multiple sizes and colors and would be a good gift for nearly anyone assuming they ever leave their house and take things with them.
- 24in Photo Soft Box Light Tent – 4 Backdrops
This is a little more specialized, but if you know someone who likes to take photos of food, jewelry, or items (smaller than 2 foot), this foldup light tent is perfect for getting the soft, diffused lighting that photographers are looking for. If you need to add more light, you could use a cheap clip on light or table lamp from the sides or the top.
- Intermatic TN311 15 Amp Heavy Duty Grounded Timer
This could be considered a safety item, but it has many applications. If you’re away from your house for periods of time after dark or going on vacation, set the timer for a light to turn on and off at various intervals so it looks like someone is home. We use one so the dog isn’t in the dark for the last hour before we get home from work.
- Stanley 95-112B LED Tripod Flashlight Black
My husband loves this flashlight for when he’s working on projects in the dark and needs to have both hands free. This would also be great to keep in a car in case someone needs to change a flat tire in the dark.
- Bucket Boss 01056 56-Pocket Bucket Tool Organizer
While this is technically a tool organizer, you could use it for any type of supplies (crafts, knitting, painting). My husband keeps his regular tools organized in this so he can carry them from room to room and have everything he needs. The bucket isn’t included, but you can pick one up for a few dollars at a hardware store.
- iLuv SmashBox 3.5mm Aux Portable Speaker Case (Blue)
We use this speaker case to listen to music from our phones or mp3 players when we aren’t going to be near a plug and for going to the beach. Phones can zip up inside to stay protected and the speaker is surprisingly loud and clear.
- Anker® Astro Slim2 4500mAh Ultra-Slim Portable Charger External Battery Power Pack
An external battery (whether it’s a pack or a case) is a must for those times when you can’t conveniently charge your device. This one has extremely high ratings and works with a variety of devices including e-readers, mp3 players, and more. If you would prefer a case that slips over your phone, there are a variety available for different phones at a large variety of prices: Phone Battery Cases
