Millennials are a generation that grew up in the age of fast technical development. Things like the internet, tablets, iPhones and many tech gadgets are what they are used to using since they first were able to hold something in their hands. They’d be great as tech gifts.
With the holidays approaching (and the shopping stress that follows), you don’t at least have to get a headache thinking what to buy a millennial. Choose any of the great tech gifts below and you won’t be wrong.
1. An item finder
The ringing keychain is its forerunner. This is a modern version of it that you can connect to your phone and ring it when you can’t find your keys. But the cool thing with the item finder is that it can work both ways, meaning you can also use it to find your phone if you misplaced it. It will ring even if it has been set on silent!
2. Volta charging cable
With all those technical gadgets we have, it’s a nightmare to keep track of different cables we need to charge them. Sometimes it’s a real mess when you’re trying to pinpoint which cable you actually need.
Luckily, the Volta Charging Cable is a real game changer. It consists of the Volta, which is a small tip that you plug into the electronic device you need to charge. Next, the Volta enables the Volta Charging Cable to connect magnetically! The great thing about this gadget is that this cable is able to connect to any Volta magnetic tip that’s plug into any device. In other words, even though there are different mobile phones in one household, like iOS phones and Androids, the tip fits any of them, meaning you can charge all the devices using the same cable. The millennials will simply love it!
3. Wonder clutch
In case the millennial to whom you want to buy a gift is a girl, this is something that she will instantly fall in love with. Every girl loves getting a purse, but if that purse has a double purpose, even better. More precisely, the wonder clutch is also a wireless speaker, meaning she can listen to music wherever she is.
4. A new smartphone
This could be a slippery slope for some people, but if you know the person well, then you can be quite sure what type of smartphone they would like. We all know that throughout the most of the day we are all dependable on our smartphones, so just think how much you would cheer up your millennial friend or family member if you bought them a new smartphone with cool features. The good thing when buying a smartphone for someone you know well is that you won’t have to do it on your own. Companies like Personal Digital offer assistance when people are choosing mobile phones for others, helping them narrow down the choice according to features every individual smartphone has.
5. Beam Authentic
In case your millennial loves fashion, this would be a perfect gift for them. It is a programmable button that you can pin on your clothes or use the magnet on the back to simply attach it onto your clothes. The button is connected with an app that allows the user to take, upload and also share pictures on the front screen of the button.
In other words, the Beam Authentic is a gift that a millennial can wear and make it as unique as they want to. Of course, the pictures are limited to the front of the button. The user can have several hours to use the button, as it needs to be recharged at some point.
6. A Smartwatch or a jewelry piece
Almost any accessory we wear today can be “smart”. Whether it’s a watch, a bracelet, a necklace or a fitness-aid, they all can be very useful to a millennial that enjoys being online and informed all the time. Depending on the type of person you’re buying it for and their needs, you only need to choose what type of smart accessory it should be.
The truth is that you can’t go wrong with a tech gift when you’re buying something to a millennial. You only need to come up with the tech gift that would be most useful for them at this moment, but also fun. That’s what gifts are for, right?
