Tech Gift Guide : Modern Gifts for All Ages
Still looking for that perfect gift for someone on your list? Here’s my list of modern tech gifts that will surprise and delight family and friends of all ages.
The Lovebox $99 (As seen on Goop): The French know a thing or two about love so it’s no surprise that this French-made modern day love messenger is a wonderful way to share notes with your friends and family! The Lovebox is a wooden box that syncs to your smartphone to send love notes back and forth via a (free) mobile app. The heart dial on the outside starts to spin to notify you of a new message. Open the lid to read the message on the Lovebox screen. Once read, spin the heart to notify the sender that the message was read. In return, the sender will receive a stream of hearts displayed on their smartphone screen. For my kids, the Lovebox will be a fun way to experience “surprise” notes from our out of town grandparents or when my husband is traveling for work. Plus, when it’s not in use, the pretty design and cute heart shape make it an appealing addition to your home decor. *
The Beauty Bank $30: This is the ideal accessory for your girlfriend who is always on the go. The Beauty Bank is an illuminating compact mirror that is also a portable charger for your Apple or Android phone. Phone charger – check! Book light – check! Pocket mirror to save your friend from walking around with lunch crumbs in her smile – check! It also comes in a variety of finishes and metal hues.
Amazon Echo $69 (regular price $99): The Amazon Echo, also known as “Alexa,” is the perfect gift for anyone of your list! You can use “Alexa” to do pretty much everything, which is how we use the Echo in our house (from closing the garage door to turning off lights) or simply use “Alexa” as an on-call music box. I also rely on “Alexa” to report the daily weather, tell us a joke or to play a family game of jeopardy.
Vtech Kidizoom Camera Pix $39: The durable design and easy to use features makes this a great first camera for a little one. The photos and videos my son takes on this camera are truly priceless! Available in blue and pink.
Samsung The Frame TV $1935: Can we say group gift? Or maybe a Christmas, birthday and anniversary gift combined for the next few years? I’m not one to care about TVs, but this is a beautiful television that looks like a lovely framed piece of art on the wall when not in use.
Photo Calendar with Brass Easel $55: This monthly photo calendar displayed on a brass easel is modern and elegant plus can be personalized with all those memorable photos on your phone. All of the customizable items from Artifact Uprising are sleek and minimal in design. A beautiful gift to create and share using treasured snapshots.
