10 Top Tech Gifts for 2014

Hot gadgets that the techies in your life will actually appreciate.


Every family, workplace, or friendship has one of these people.

You can’t buy him ties, because he doesn’t like ties. Gift cards are too impersonal for her. Movies, books, and video games are out, because they prefer to download them in their own time. A watch? Come on – everyone just checks the time on their phone these days. Come Christmas day, the only thing that can bring a smile to their face is sleek, encased in plastic, and smells of silicon microchips.

SLIDESHOW: The 10 Best Tech Gifts of 2014

I’m talking, of course, about the techies.

The answer seems simple: Buy them something techie. But in a market sector filled with failed startups, Kickstarter wannabes, and blatant cash-ins, it’s hard to know if the hot gadget you’re eyeing will be genuinely useful and appreciated or the modern-day equivalent of a Betamax player. Sloshing through this swamp of useless guff seems nigh-on impossible.

Unless, of course, someone were to collate what were (in their opinion) some of the hottest technological gifts of the year, perhaps neatly arranged by price, spanning a wide range of technological sub-categories, with handy links to purchase the products in question.

That would be awesome, wouldn’t it? If only someone would take the initiative.
