I am definitely a tech geek — a trait passed down to me from my step-dad — and this is one of my favorite category of gifts. Whether you’re looking for an e-reader or affordable tablet, the Kindle Paperwhite and Kindle Fire are at the top of my gift guide this year: the Paperwhite is my favorite Kindle product to date, and we actually participated in several group gifts to get Kindle Fires for family members!
My biggest gripe with the original Kindle was the lack of a built-in light. I don’t enjoy reading with a book light, so I eventually switched from a Kindle to a tablet for its backlit screen. However, Amazon released the new Kindle Paperwhite earlier this fall, and it’s the perfect solution — a built-in light that shines down from the screen so that you can read in any setting but without the backlight that’s hard on your eyes!
Although I love the Kindle Paperwhite for reading, the Kindle Fire is a great tablet for someone who’s looking for internet connectivity, games, movie watching and more. Choose between the 7″ Kindle Fire ($159), the 7″ Kindle Fire HD ($199), or the 8.9″ Kindle Fire HD ($299) for a larger screen!
For someone who already has a Kindle, an Amazon.com Gift Card is the perfect gift so that the recipient can buy Kindle books, music, accessories and more!
I received a review pair of these earbuds back in June, and I love them! Whenever I need to drown out the noise around me — whether it’s at home or at a Starbucks — I slip on the Ultimate Ears 200vi Noise-Isolating Headset and enjoy my music without the distraction of whatever else is going on.
A friend of mine has lost 27 pounds this year through healthier eating and regular exercise, and she loves her Fitbit One Wireless Activity Plus Sleep Tracker, which tracks your activity, sleep habits and more to help you be more intentional about your exercise!
With hands-free cell phone laws being passed in more and more states, the Plantronics M50 Bluetooth Headset is a great gift for someone who talks a lot while on the go!
