A Phone Cover
If the person you are buying for loves technology then the chances are they also love everything to do with Star Wars.

Whether it’s the heroic Luke or the evil Darth, a gift like this is sure to put a smile on any techie’s face!
USB Powered Anything
And we mean anything! Whether it’s a small fan which sits on their computer a work, a can holder which keeps the drink cold, or even some flashing lights that turn on randomly throughout the day, if it’s USB powered, it’s a great gift idea!
Head to your local game or tech store and browse the trinket section of relatively cheap USB powered gadgets. While you might not see a use for it, consider this a good reverse guide. Look for a device which you think is the silliest thing you have seen and that’s the gadget you want to buy!
No, we aren’t talking about the large reconnaissance drones that you hear about on the news. Instead, these are much smaller flying devices which can be controlled via a remote control or simply using a phone.
While there are a number of brands on the market, it’s best to let your budget decide which one you buy. However, if you can get one with a camera then it will be an instant hit at the party!
Finding a gift for a tech lover doesn’t have to be a stressful challenge. Stick to the ideas listed above and you will sure to get a great gift that’s guaranteed to please!
