Holiday Gift Guide: Technology


Don’t we all love tech gifts? I feel like they’re usually the most fun—and what we spend our entire Christmas morning playing around with and setting up! Below are several ideas for the tech-lover in your life, all under $200…

Misfit Shine, $99
For the tech- and fitness-loving person, it’s all about the wearables. My personal favorite is the Misfit Shine, which is a lot more stylish than the other fitness trackers out there, making it more likely to be worn during the day rather than just during a workout. Looking for a lower price point? They have a new plastic version that’s only $50 called the Flash.

Kindle Voyage, $199+
The latest addition to the Kindle family, this is perfect for the reader in your life. The ultra-thin and lightweight device has all kinds of new features that make e-reading easier and more enjoyable than ever. Though I love my Paperwhite, I admit I wouldn’t hate getting this from Santa.

Triple C for J.Crew Slim Universal Charger, $39.50
Gives a little extra life to iPhones—about a half charge—for when you’re on the go.

LSTN Headphones, $150
Not only are these headphones gender-neutral and really stunning, for each pair sold, LSTN helps restore hearing to a person in need through the Starkey Hearing Foundation. Win-win. Looking for a more delicate/more feminine pair? Try the Frends Layla Headphones (also $150).

Triple C for J.Crew Bluetooth Speaker, $75
A beautiful way to take tunes with you wherever you go.

Fujifilm INSTAX Instant Smartphone Printer, $199
Lets you print photos from a smartphone or tablet in an instant.

4-In-1 Lens iPhone Protective Case, $99
A great gift for the iPhone photographer in your life.

CASH Smartwatch, $139.99
It’s a smartwatch…for your finances. It’s always with you, so it can capture expenses on the fly and then automatically update a budget. Each CASH SmartWatch comes with 3 fashionable watch straps: Classy Gray Stingray, Casual White Faux Croc and Sporty Black Silicone, a stylus, charger and USB cable.

Snooze Dock for iPhone, $34.99
A minimal, solid wood stand that creates a bedside charging station for an iPhone and cable. It basically lets you hit snooze the old school way—by smacking the top of the alarm clock!

Roku 3, $84.99
The Roku 3 is the easiest way to stream TV and movies. We personally have one and are totally obsessed—so much so, we ditched cable completely. My favorite feature is the built-in headphone jack, which lets you listen privately without disturbing anyone in the room (in my situation…a sleeping baby!).
