Amazon Fire Tablet (formerly Kindle)
If the gift recipient loves to read books, then Amazon’s Fire tablet would be the best! Having a full multi-color screen display, this sleek gadget is also equipped with Wi-Fi connection capabilities. It runs on a dual-core processor that makes web browsing experience really pleasurable. With it, you can not only read books all the time; you can also watch TV shows and downloaded movies, read magazines, play games, shop for applications, check your email, and much more.
Your friend who’s always on the go will truly be delighted as he/ she can use it in school, at work, at home, and just about everywhere. The latest would be the Fire HD 10 having been refreshed late in 2019 with new specs.
Digital LED Watch
Armed with style, fashion, and functionality, a LED watch will be a perfect gift for your loved ones. Imagine them looking at the time and every time they will think of you. Choose a good color and design that will fit them and blend with their wardrobe and personality.
If you have a boyfriend or girlfriend, a good idea is to buy one for yourself as well so you can wear them together as couple watches.
Solar iPhone Charger
If your friend owns an iPhone, then a solar-powered iPhone charger would be especially helpful and useful to him! iPhones’ battery die out fast, and if your friend is most of the time outside without an electronic outlet available and charger to plug his smartphone to, he/ she will most definitely need an extra battery. Better yet, he/ she can use this solar charger if his iPhone goes low on power.
You would never go wrong with gifting a waterproof camera because this gadget is the bomb! Owning one opens a whole world of under-the-sea photography opportunities for your loved ones. You can go on family trips to the beaches, to a resort, and fancy swimming pools and preserve good memories while diving underneath the ocean. Have a good time capturing photos with splashes of water with fun and laughter. An underwater waterproof compact camera is the best vacation companion. Most recommended are, Olympus Tough TG-6, Nikon’s CoolPix W300, and of course, the GoPro.
Game players are the best option when your friend is a video game buff. Whenever he’s bored, he/ she will take out this portable device and be entertained right away. The plus? He/ she will thank good heavens for having you in his life, as the giver of this wonderful techie gadget. With a game player, you can enjoy playing cool games, watch favorite movies, and listen to music. Some players now have extended features so make sure that you purchase the most suitable one.

For example, bookish people would enjoy books and the smell of those new pages than they would an e-reader. A loved one who is into bodybuilding or getting in shape would surely appreciate training gears, protein shakes, maybe even a supply of beef jerky. You can even gift a Foosball table for those who enjoy hand-eye coordination games, or a game of chess set for the genius mind.
