5 Gifts To Get Your Tech Lovin' Loved One

This year, it's time to level up on your gift giving - and these are the hottest things you can get to wow your loved one this year. 

Dropmix

Had never heard of Dropmix before today, but now I'm super keen to give it a go! @dropmixgame @Harmonix

First of all, I have to say, this game is so much fun. The premise is a controller that has 5 light up spots, and you play with 2 to 4 players, and each deck has different genres of music. You then add cards to the board to create supermixes. Some of the artists included in the packs range from Ed Sheeran, to Hall & Oats, to Disturbed, The Weekend, and even A Tribe Called Quest.

Considering the fact that you don't need a gaming system to play this (you just set up your phone/tablet for the screen), and it's got all the different genres, it can be fun for all types of groups of people to play.

Pick it up on Amazon.

 

Amazon Echo, Echo Dot

Enjoy interactive audio stories with Earplay for Alexa! Just say "Alexa, start Earplay." Find more Alexa skills at https://t.co/otgjSuiWJk.

Depending on what's your fancy, you could give the gift of Alexa this Christmas. Use it to control features on your TV or home devices, order products from Amazon, or request to listen to the radio by asking for the station.  Snag the device on Amazon for a different range of prices based on the Dot, the original Echo, or even a Wood Finished version.

 

Wireless Headphones

Beats Studio3 Wireless headphones look the same, but the inside got a big upgrade https://t.co/u3NFDjblvW

You can't go wrong with wireless headphones. And you don't have to necessarily get Air Pods to feel the free range. There's a whole slew of different brands on Amazon that you can pick up, with varying cost points. They connect through Bluetooth for the most part, and some even come with an Aux wire / port so you can still use them with the computer.

 

Nintendo Switch

WWE 2K18 on Twitter

It's happening! #WWE2K18 releases on #NintendoSwitch starting December 6! https://t.co/ZBye3xQZ9d

Prynt Pocket Printer

Your favorite wintertime memories can be printed in a flash with Prynt Pocket! ????

If you love the feel of tangible pictures, this Prynt Pocket Printer is super sick. You just plug your iPhone into the dock, and choose the photo you'd like to print out, and it prints it on the spot. Snag it for your Apple user off Amazon. Sadly, the Prynt only comes for iPhone products. But don't fret, you can always go the more frugal route, and pick up a Fujifilm Instax camera, which personally, I think I like the idea of that better, just because the photos are framed like Polaroids. You can order those on Amazon as well.

 

Happy Shopping!
