It’s hard shopping for people who are into technology trends. You know their going to look at the hot chocolate gift set and grimly smile with a dry, “thanks”. That is when you feel like you’ve wasted money and what’s the point of even shopping for friends and loved ones? The giving spirit of the Holiday season; that is the purpose. But who wants to give crappy old fashioned gifts? Here is a list of tech savvy gifts that are on the top of my wish list.
Tech Gift Ideas For Tech Savvy People

Westinghouse/Novi Wireless has an intercom system that makes it easier to call for family members throughout the house. It’s expandable up to 4 units making it convenient to put in the kid’s rooms and major areas. The unit is also good for checking in on baby.

Accessories to other products
This strategy is an undiscovered masterpiece. Purchasing expensive tech loving products are just the barebones in the process. The accessories to these products are not included but are worth the purchase. You are certain that your best friend is receiving a Zune for Christmas, why not purchase a travel kit for her daily commute that includes a travel case, ac adapter, ear plugs and more. Know someone getting a Nintendo Wii or Playstation 3? Go ahead and buy a game or extra controllers. You will be pleasantly surprised at how happy your techie will be to unwrap latest and fastest computer router that allows them to play online at top speed!
Unlike traditional socks, shirts and underwear for the Holidays, trendy techie gifts sell like hot cakes so get out, surf and make your purchases before you’re stuck giving the hot coca set. Good luck!
