Some people are so hard to shop for — and it's hard to discuss gift ideas with a person while their face is glued to their phone. Luckily, we're here to help you knock their socks off this Christmas with stocking stuffers for gadget lovers. If you're looking for the perfect holiday gifts for someone who texts from across the room, Instagrams every meal, or uses hashtags on a regular basis, we've rounded up some ideas that will make their #Christmas.
Nothing strikes terror into the heart of a technology junkie than the "Battery Critically Low" message. Save your loved-one from distress by getting them a portable charger. We are particularly fond of the Anker Astro Mini 3000mAh Ultra-Compact Portable Charger. It comes with several adapters, so whether you're dealing with an Apple Evangelist or an Android Loyalist, they'll have power when they need it.
The pen is mightier
Most electronics these days are touch screen, but sometimes fingers can be a little clumsy. Enter the stylus pen! They come in a bazillion colors and work on just about any touch screen phone or tablet. Check out the amPen Ultra-sensitive Capacitive Stylus. The soft tip works with touch screens without scratching or smudging. These are especially great for those who like to doodle or take notes on their phone or tablet.
You've got it covered
The cover of one's phone or tablet says so much. Help your techie make a statement with a personalized cover. You can use pre-made designs or even upload your own photos or doodles. SkinIt can create a cover for just about any kind of gadget — even gaming controllers! Click over and design a masterpiece.
There's an app for that
If all else fails, any tech buff appreciates apps. Load them up with gift cards to iTunes (for Apple devices) or Google Play (for Android). With store credits they can buy software, games, music... pretty much anything digital. You just can't go wrong. For iTunes gift cards, click here. And here for Android (scroll down for the option to purchase online).
