Tech gifts are among some of the hottest gift ideas these days, and it’s no wonder because there are some seriously awesome products on the market! In fact, I had the pleasure of attending a Lunch & Learn event in Chicago a couple of weeks ago and saw some of the latest and greatest products on the market first hand, and I even got to take a few items home with me! Below you will find some of the coolest tech gift ideas for everyone on your list.
Coolest tech gift ideas this holiday season
Below is a list of items that we were able to check out and get our hands on during the event.
- Speck – Speck shared a few different items including the GrabTab ($9.95), Presidio Pro and Presidio Stay Clear ($39.95-$44.95) cases for iPhone

We also enjoyed a delicious lunch with a presentation, in which we learned some fun facts. For instance, did you know that the top 5 tech holiday wish list items include:
- Smartphone and Tablet (tied)
- Desktop and Any Type of Camera (tied)
However, just over 20 years ago in 1994, things were a bit different! The top 5 tech holiday wish list items then were:
- Cordless Phone
- Portable Stereo
- CD Player
- Color TV
- Video Game System (Gen 1)
It was quite interesting to look back on the hot wish list items from then and now. In reality, not much has changed though, our technology has just tremendously advanced over the course of 24 years! I often ask myself, ‘What would we do without technology?” and I honestly don;t know. It’s our way to connect with the world and provides so much entertainment, that I just couldn’t imagine a world where technology did not exist. Could you?
