Looking for some great stocking stuffers for the tech guru in your life this holiday season? SumnerOne joined the crew at The Big 550 KTRS for Tech Talk to share a few different ideas for every person and budget. Our IT expert, Randy Moore, was prepared to chat about the different functionalities and purposes of some of the best stocking stuffer ideas out there when it comes to convenience and technology.
Randy's Top 5 Technology Stocking Stuffers for 2018
1.) USB Solar Portable Phone Charger - This product is just as cool as it sounds. People are always wanting to keep their phones charged, but sometimes we don't have access to outlets to power-up. In this instance, you would use this portable charger and your power source is the sun. Randy said he leaves his phone on a solar charger in the window of his office to get a charge going. USB solar phone chargers are pretty inexpensive and can be found on Amazon. and would make a great gift for that person in your life who always needs to charge their phone.
2.) Multi USB Wall Charger - Have you ever wanted to charge your phone and your tablet at the same time, but could only find one wall adapter? Problem solved. This wall charger will securely plug into your outlet and charge two devices at one time. This is definitely handy for people on-the-go, travelers, and to keep your kids from fighting over who's turn it is to charge their device.
3.) Mini Bluetooth Speaker- Because of streaming services like Spotify and Pandora, you can take your music with you everywhere your device goes. Mini Bluetooth speakers give you the option to share your music with everyone. These speakers might be small, but they pack a big punch when it comes to how loud you can get when rocking out to your favorite song! These speakers make great gifts for anyone who enjoys entertaining, being outdoors, or just enjoys music.
4.) Streaming Gift Cards - This is a great gift option for the gamers or music lovers in your life. Many streaming websites like Spotify, Pandora, and more have gift cards available to unlock their premium features. Gaming systems like Xbox or Play Station also offer gift cards that can be redeemed in their online stores. This stocking stuffer is sure to be a great gift, especially since it's a gift that just keeps on giving. Streaming gift cards can be bought online or at your nearest store where you can find gift cards.
5.) IT Cord Organizer - Getting your headphones and phone chargers tangled up in your backpack or purse can be a pain. You spend more time untangling your cords than you actually do using them. Randy suggested purchasing a cord and device organizer for the technology lover in your life. This handy organizer will keep things easily accessible and neat when in your bag. This could also be a great gift idea for anyone you know who travels for business or is always on-the-go.
