Tech Gifts That Are the Ultimate in Cute

by hmd_webmaster, 6th March 2014

Giving a gift is meant to be a selfless act, but it’s easy to become overwhelmed by frustration when that someone on your list has interests and inclinations entirely opposite of your own.

After a few trips to the mall, you realize it’s a waste of gas and time to go from store to store in the hope the perfect present will catch your eye. And sorting by age and gender on shopping websites might merely turn up sweaters of different shades and sizes. Looking through the recipient’s favorite magazines for hints can leave you puzzled and perplexed about what to select. Without your own preferences or a clear idea of theirs to guide you, you could end up with a generic and forgettable gift when you instead wanted to give them something they’d cherish.

It’s at these times tech presents can fill the bill. Tablets and smartphones routinely top the wish lists of most every type of person, but as welcome as those might be, they aren’t very personal. That’s not to say that tech should be stricken from holiday shopping lists when you want to convey a connection. There are gadget-y choices beyond the pale aluminum for a whole spectrum of people you’re shopping for this holiday season.

At PCMag we know some of our readers enjoy both tech and that level of extreme cuteness known in Japan as kawaii. The combination makes for some adorable gadgets, like a chocolate-bar-shaped camera that takes dreamy photos and a fluffball of a vacuum cleaner. Those and the other gifts in the gallery are sure to get squeals of delight.

Not everyone is going to be charmed by scented gummy bear earbuds though. So check back with us for some unexpected suggestions for (of course) the?geeks in your life, but alsothe foodies,?the hipsters,?the design lovers,?the fabulous fashionistas, and?the adherents to the Anthropologie aesthetic.
