If you’re ever unsure of a gift to get someone for the holidays, you can’t go wrong with a tech gift. Technology is something we all use every single day, so it makes sense that it provides us with some of the coolest and most useful gifts. 

Beyond the physical gift itself, you can give them actual experiences and also make their lives a whole lot easier. From a virtual reality headset that creates experiences and builds community to a self-cleaning water bottle that saves time on scrubbing and sanitizing, there’s a tech gift out there for everyone. 

There are even gifts for the most amateur of tech users, like bluetooth trackers for the most forgetful person you know, or a power bank that literally only requires they plug their device in to charge.
