Top gadgets for the ‘techie’ men in your life this holiday season 

It’s no secret that shopping for technology lovers can be tough. So if you’re feeling stumped in the gift department, know you’re not alone.

But with under a week to go until Christmas, even last-minute shoppers are running short on time. And rather than aimlessly wandering the aisles of Best Buy without a single gift idea in mind, why not sit back, relax, and allow us to provide you with some top-notch gifting inspiration?

Do you have a sheet of paper, a pen, and a cup of hot cocoa? Good, then you’re ready.

Read on to learn exactly what to get the techie in your life this holiday season.

The Apple Watch 5 series 

Released back in September, this is one of the most impressive watches on the market right now. Apple has truly outdone itself with the Series 5 Apple Watch.

Unlike earlier Apple Watches, the series 5 allows users to see the time and your complications all at once, without even raising your wrist. The OLED always-on screen feature sets this watch apart from other popular smartwatches.

The series 5 base model retails for $399. However, there are stainless steel and titanium options that go for $699 and $799, respectively.

Sony WH1000XM3 noise-cancelling headphones

If the man you’re shopping for enjoys music, Sony’s Noise Cancelling Headphones WH1000XM3 are another great gifting option this season. At $278, they may seem a bit pricey, but you’ll definitely get a lot of bang for your buck with this purchase. Between the digital noise-cancelling feature, voice assistance, quick attention mode, smart listening capabilities and more, you’ll be hard-pressed to find a better set of headphones for the techie in your life this Christmas.

Apple iPad Pro

If you don’t think your man would enjoy a new Apple Watch or Sony Noise Cancelling headphones, the Apple iPad Pro could be a great alternative. With its 11-inch edge-to-edge Liquid Retina display, there’s truly no sleeker tablet out there right now.

And think of all the possibilities for streaming! If the giftee you have in mind is constantly streaming Netflix, Hulu, or HBONow on the go, this would be the perfect gift.

Cost: $799

Potensic T18 GPS Drone

Last but not least, the Potensic T18 GPS Drone could be just what the techie in your life wants to see under the tree this year.

This is one of the most popular drones out there now and has an impressive 4.5-star rating. It’s most notable features include the 1080P HD camera, GPS positioning, headless mode, 10 min flying time, and 300m control distance.

The best part? It’s only $129.99 on Amazon.

Now that you have the scoop on the best techie gifts of Christmas 2019, it’s time to wrap up that last-minute shopping. Looking for gift ideas for the other men on your list? Check out this Holiday Gift Generator for even more inspiration.
