The holiday season is in the air. It’s about time you got that special business owner in your life a present, whether it’s your boss or a family member. To save you from some unneeded stress, we’ve put together this list of the best technology gifts for a business owner.
Our Best Technology Gifts for 2016
Ever since they’ve been revealed to the world, smartwatches have been all the rage in the tech scene, and for good reason. They’re massively useful. However, so many of them are simply unstylish.
The solution: hybrid smartwatches. They combine the elegance of a classic analog watch with the convenience and functionality of a regular smartwatch. Some of our favorites include:
- Skagen Hagen Connected Leather Hybrid Smartwatch
- Fossil Q54 Pilot Light Brown Leather Smartwatch
- Misfit Phase Hybrid Smartwatch
- Michael Bastian Chronowing
2. Wood Laptop Stand
This wooden laptop stand from Grovemade, a Portland-based company that handcrafts all sorts of awesome tech stuff from wood will make a sharp addition to any workspace. It’s angled for maximum ergonomic comfort, and has a space underneath for storing office accessories.
3. Microsoft Surface Pro 4
The Microsoft Surface Pro 4 has been dubbed the tablet that “could plausibly replace a laptop” by CNET. Undoubtedly one of the best technology gifts this year, the Surface Pro 4 merges the convenient note taking capabilities and portability of a tablet with the power and functionality of a laptop.
The sleek, thin Surface Pro 4 provides a unique version of the Windows 10 operating system, fully optimized for tablet usage. Its 267 pixels-per-inch resolution is more than twice that of Apple’s MacBook Air.
As if you need more convincing, the Surface Pro 4’s brilliant snap-on keyboard has received an upgrade, with more widely-spaced keys for easier typing.
4. Samsung Galaxy S7 Edge
One of the most well-received Android phones of 2016, the Samsung Galaxy S7 Edge has some serious battery life and tons of storage space.
The wraparound touchscreen and customizable menu make it easy for a busy person to stay organized and on top of things. It’s arguably the most stylish, efficient phone on the market at the moment.
5. Anker PowerCore Speed 10000 QC
On-the-go business owners don’t often have time to sit around the office and charge their phones throughout the day, so portable power packs are certainly among the best technology gifts year in and year out.
One of 2016’s greatest is the Anker PowerCore 10000 QC. It’s slim enough to fit in a pocket, yet powerful enough to fully charge most phones three times. Plus, it’s designed with superior temperature control technology, so it stays cool while charging.
These gifts will be put to good use by any business owner who receives them. What are some of your top tech gifts of the year that didn’t make this list?
