The Techie’s Ultimate Holiday Gift Guide 2014

Instead of repeating last year, and waiting until Christmas Eve to knock out your gift list, check out our holiday gift guide! You still have time to order online and get in time for the holidays.

Tocky Runaway Alarm Clock with Mp3 Player: (Amazon) $49.98. This cute little alarm will jump around your bedroom in the morning, forcing you to get up and turn it off. It comes in a few fun colors like teal, orange and pearly white.

Cyanics Sauna Boy Portable Mini Office Bedroom Humidifier: (Amazon) $8. This mini humidifier is USB powered, and is compact enough to take with you to work or to put next to your bed at night. Humidifiers are perfect for keeping your skin and sinuses hydrated, but they also keep your throat from drying out, which helps combat snoring. This one even has a cute little face painted on it.

Apple TV: ( $99. This is still the gold standard of Christmas gifts. You basically can’t go wrong with giving this media streamer as a present. As Apple products almost never go on sale, you can expect a flat rate of about $99 across the board. This streaming box allows you access to Netflix, Hulu and numerous other apps. This makes most sense for folks that are already Apple users, as it also allows you access to your iTunes account, and all the music and apps that you already have stored.

Crosley X UO Cruiser Briefcase Portable Vinyl Record Player: ( $98. This tiny record player comes in a bunch of vintage-inspired colors that come in a compact little briefcase. This is perfect for you if your living area is compact; at only 17” wide it’s small enough to fit in a cramped space. The record player plays all types of LPs: 33 1/3, 45’s, and 78’s. Priced under a hundred dollars, this is a steal.

Bodum Brazil 8-Cup French Press Coffee Maker, 34-Ounce: (Amazon) $21.99. Most techies love coffee. This is a gift that works great at home or in the office. A French press brews up a much stronger cup of coffee than the regular drip, which is perfect for killing off any mid-day sleepiness.

Fitbit Zip Wireless Activity Tracker: ( $59.95. This cool little gadget is new in the world of “wearable technology” and is an awesome gift for anyone on your list who is trying to get their health in-check. This counts calories, steps and activity levels throughout the day. Download the free app and track a friend’s progress, or compete against them. On top of all that, it’s small enough to clip anywhere.

We here at CableWholesale have a couple of cool options as well, watch for our “Gifts for your Geek” email next week:

Bluetooth 4.0 Portable Vibrating Induction Speaker: ( $61.61.This induction speaker is cool because it turns any surface that it’s placed on into a speaker, with a clear sound that handles high volume perfectly. It hooks right up to your phone through Bluetooth and can also be used as a hands-free speaker phone as well. It’s also small enough to throw in your bag and take with you wherever you go.

USB Car Charger: One port: ( $4.78 (sale). This little charger is perfect for a stocking stuffer, and is priced under five dollars. A USB car charger will always come in handy; use it for plugging in your phone to your cigarette lighter when you are on the go.
