We’re Dreaming of a (Mostly) Techie Christmas


Ah, Christmas; indeed the most wonderful time of the year! You’re probably almost done with your shopping but if you’re anything like us, there may still be one or two people on your list that you, despite racking your brain, still have no idea what to get. Well, never fear, PAPA is here! This is our short list of cool, techie gifts that you still have time to order online for the cool, techie people in your life!

  1. For your iPhone friends: The Aduro Apple Certified 10 foot USB cord. It charges the iPod, iPhone, or iPad with Lightning connector and syncs with your computer through an available USB port. Because it’s 10 feet it can easily reach a USB port on the front or back of most computers or wall adapters. These are available on Amazon and if you’re a Prime member it ships for free! $8.99-$13.99
  1. Know someone who loves to listen to music but needs to conserve space? We like the JBL Charge 2. At $100 (directly from JBL), this small Bluetooth speaker delivers some big sound. And with 12 hours of battery life, this speaker can power a party that lasts into the wee hours of the morning! And bonus, you can charge another device through the USB port. This is also available on Amazon and in stores.
  1. If you‘re looking for an inexpensive gift for the sound lover in your life, look no further than the Merkury Urban Beatz Tempo headphones. These headphones deliver decent sound quality for $40!
  1. Who doesn’t love leather? So a leather mouse pad, like this one we found on ETSY makes the perfect gift for your awesome office mate! We found them at various online shops from $12-$50, so there is one to fit every budget!
  1. A handmade gift is sure to please especially this wooden iPhone 6 stand. This stylish stand is sure to please any of your iPhone using co-workers. The one linked here is $23 and is made by an awesome craftsperson in NC!
  1. Who doesn’t like gadgets that can open a beer as easily as is it can fix something? The Zoolility has twelve functions packed into one millimeter of stainless steel. It’s the size of credit card, so you can easily carry it with you at all times without adding bulk or heft to your wallet or purse. It can act as a phone stand, bottle opener, screwdriver, hex wrench, ruler, scraper, and more all in one American Made product. It’s $19.95 for a set of 2—so two folks can enjoy this awesome device!

Merry Christmas to all and may the force be with you as you finish your holiday shopping this year!
