The Palm

Just as the Ridge Wallet this is the perfect gift for the minimalist. This miniature smartphone called the Palm, is great for unplugging for the weekend, but still have access to the world if wanting so. Minimal to carry around as smartphones are becoming larger and larger almost like carrying a tablet around. The Palm can be worn around your neck, slide it into your pocket, mounted on your bike, fit into the pocket of your purse, etc.

Amazon Echo Ear Buds

These earbuds have up to 5 hours of usage on one single charge. This includes up to 20 hours with a charging case. You gain 2 hours of usage with a 15-minute charge.  The earbuds are IPX4 which is water-resistant and not waterproof. Customize your double-tap feature to wake up Siri or Google Assistant with compatible devices. As we all know and love about the Buds, it includes the Bose active noise reduction technology. The Echo earbuds sound great for the price. That is $129.99. In comparison to my Soundcore Liberty Airs, I do like the Echo earbuds better. With these, you can listen to your favorite audible books on-the-go or maybe your Spotify playlist.

top tech gifts; HIFIMAN HE4XX

Headphones that were praised for the sound that is remarkably close to their $1,300 brothers, Headphones that were praised for being one of the best ways to get into Planar Magnetic headphone technology became cheaper.  Drop.com has been selling the HE4XX for well over a year now at the price of $180, and by all accounts, they are worth MORE than the asking price. The Hifiman HE4XX is said the be one of if not the best introduction to the wold of Planar Magnetic headphones and I’ll say it again, provides a better value than the asking price. Then Drop.com did something a bit unexpected.

They lowered the price to $130.

We’ve been getting a lot of questions about all-in-one desktops. First thing Tamikka would say is an iMac, but not everyone have the budget to get one. Acer has a deal to get 40% off their Aspire Z3 all-in-one desktop. This perfect for everyday use such as creating documents, surfing the web, etc. We recommend buying this for Mom, Grandma, or even your kiddos.

Nintendo Switch Lite

This a great device to get for yourself (as Tamikka has one) as well as for your kids, niece, or nephew. Unlike the original Switch, this one does not have removal joy-cons as well as doesn’t have the ability to connect to your TV. It is the perfect handheld for on-the-go. It plays the same games as the original Nintendo Switch and has earned it’s place on our top tech gifts list.
