And you haven’t done any shopping yet.  All is not lost.  Well, it might be if you need to ship something since the holiday falls on a Sunday this year (2016).  If you are looking locally for that last minute gift for that special tech fan in your life, fear not.  There are still plenty of cheap and easy options that are sure to please anyone.

For the Gamer:

  1. No Man’s Sky – Probably one of the biggest games this year
  2. Destiny – Always a favorite for the online gaming set
  3. Battlefield 1 – The biggest war game of the year
  4. Grand Theft Auto – Always a favorite
  5. The Lego video games – for the younger gamers in your life

For the Media Consumer:

  1. Amazon Fire Stick – Great for streaming the latest movies and tv shows
  2. Google Chromecast – Great option for turning a less than smart TV into an entertainment powerhouse
  3. Amazon Fire Tablet – Perfect for streaming content or surfing the web.  Seriously the best tablet deal right now
  4. Google DayDream VR – Virtual Reality is the hottest thing this year
  5. Google Home Wifi – One of the best routers on the market, perfect for handling streaming video throughout the house

For the Music Lover:

  1. Google Play Music – Access millions of songs with a $10/month subscription (Also 3 month free trial)
  2. Bluetooth Headphones – Take you music on the road without the wires.  Tons of options at all price points
  3. Bluetooth Speakers – For when they want to share their tastes with the party
  4. Turn Table – Vinyl is making a comeback.  There is something more to the music with the cracks and pops
  5. Car Stereo – Media only decks make it easy to blast tunes in the car.  Most places include “free installation”

For the Gadget Geek:

  1. Tile Locators – Never lose your stuff again.  Attach a tile and use the app to locate it
  2. Google Home AI – Your personal assistant without all the mess of dealing with a human
  3. Amazon Alexa – Like Google Home, but works great if they already have an Amazon Prime subscription
  4. Universal Remote – No one likes 15 remotes laying around, make life easier with one remote to rule them all
  5. Raspberry Pi – Super Small computer with millions of uses and options

Bottom Line

Hopefully, this gets you started and gives you ideas beyond just the “hey I got you a gift card” which is not a bad gift either.
