Saving ChangeCoin Jar for you car for a Rainy Day

Even though this is marked as a man's gift, I think women would like it, too. If the person on your gift list spends quite a bit of time commuting back and forth to work in their car, they often need change for parking meters or toll booths.

Now, when they stop to grab a quick coffee in the drive through and get change back, they can place it in this gadget bank that actually tells them how much they have at any given time.

I saw a Money Coach on television the other day that suggested that we not spend our change. To save it up for something special like a much wanted vacation or any extra item that we want the extra money for.

Cool Office Gadgets - gizmos for work

Brighten Up Your Office

To be very honest - Office never really excited me. Always felt caged inside the four walls and the Politics and Backbiting really turned me off. Really happy to work from Home, but that still requires a desk - a home office. And I do think it makes it a bit more fun to have some office gadgets to cheer things up. I love the flower pen I got for my birthday a few years ago, for instance.

Tech gifts

Hot Tech Gifts: iPad, tablets and smart phones wanted by men, women, and students

Probably the hottest trend in technology right now are the tablet devices made by Apple, Microsoft and other companies. The highly mobile and touch screen technology of the tablets are proving to be really popular with teens, students, men and women. So much lighter than carrying around a laptop for our computing needs and so versatile in their functionality! We can use them just about anywhere we go.

We can keep in touch with emails and social media. We can read books and watch movies on them. We can search the internet and shop with them. Play games, if we want. Plus we can create documents, too. Many of the tablets offer a way to connect a small keyboard when there is a lot of typing needed and most are capable of having the keyboard connected to a carrying case for convenience.

Gadget Lovers Are Not Necessarily Geeks

As you can see by some of the choices that I have listed, our Christmas gifts for gadget lovers do not have to be geared to just our geeky friends. There are gadgets that just about anyone would love to have and will be able to use them throughout the year.

Gadget gifts often make wonderful stocking stuffer ideas and they are also a nifty idea to give to a fellow employee if the office exchanges gifts.

Many gadget gifts are unisex in their nature and will be appreciated by either gender when they receive them as a gift.

Are you looking for some fun Christmas gifts for gadget lovers? We all know someone who loves gadgets of some kind. Many times people equate gadgets being for our nerdy friends and they do love their gadgets. However, there are all sorts of gadgets that make great gifts for other people too. Cooks and chefs love gadgets for the kitchen. There are handy little gadgets for the men and women who love to tinker around with fixing things. People who love to read often enjoy the gadgets that are out there with them in mind. 

Gadget gifts can be on the funny side and almost considered a gag gift but others are actually very useful and make great gifts for just about anyone on your gift list.

We live in such a technology driven society that most teens are not only familiar with all sorts of gadgets, they absolutely love them. In the not too distant past, teens might have been considered a little bit of a nerd or geek if they wanted electronic gadgets but that is no longer the case. Teens are no longer technologically challenged but are instead quite proficient in knowing how all of these electronic type gadgets work.

I've included a few fun gadgets that aren't so expensive - 3D puzzles, a diversion safe and a hologram toy.

The teen on your gift list might be asking for a new MP3 player, a tablet (small mobile computer) or a new gaming device. Gadgets that probably didn't exist when you were a teen. The teen might want a new version of a game system. Other options would be accessories that go along with the gadgets that they already use on a daily basis. So, let's look at some gift ideas that are great for a teen this year.

Normal Is Boring: cool gadgets for Christmas and Birthdays

If you are tired of giving and receiving the same old stuff every Birthday or Christmas, this collection of gadgets may help you come up with some new gift ideas. That way you can gift something unusual and truly unique this Christmas. Break the circle, don't be a follower anymore.

As many of you know, I make a living as an online publisher. This involves writing about stuff that interests me, like the spiritual path and karma, spiritual book reviews and so on. However, to make ends meet, I also do gift recommendations

That is: I recommend products, and you - the potential customer - get to have less of a chore finding them. It's a win-win, especially since I get a percentage for each sale. The deal is this: follow a link on any of these pages and buy something, and you - without any extra cost to you - are sponsoring me to keep on going. 

I've started out of course with spiritual gifts, but there are also calendars, laptops, iPads, Harry Potter gear etc. It's all stuff I have bought or would buy if my house room and pockets were infinite. They're not and that's OK. 

As you click through you'll notice that some of the gift pages are on this site, some are on other sites I've set up. See also my new gifts blog.
