If you are looking for a birthday gift for mom, an end of the school year reward for a kiddo or a special gift for dear old dad, there are plenty of tech gadgets to choose from. Check out the following examples that are sure to make the technophile in your life happy:
For Mom: A Purse that Charges her iPhone
Yes, you read that correctly — moms can now combine their love of a great handbag with a quick and convenient way to charge their smartphones. The Everpurse by Kate Spade comes in a variety of sizes and colors and features technology that is expertly hidden behind the lining of this beautiful bag. When mom is at home, she can place the Everpurse on top of a charging mat to rev up its internal battery. In the morning when she is heading out to work, drive the kids to school and/or run a zillion errands, placing her iPhone into the SmartPocket in the Everpurse will keep her charged while on the go. And, because the designers at Kate Spade believe that a woman should never have to choose between function and fashion, the Everpurse is as lovely as any other purse by Kate Spade, and does not include any unattractive charging buttons or wires.
For Dad: A Voice Assistant
Dads who love gadgets are sure to appreciate a voice assistant that will answer questions, order pizza and play his favorite tunes. There are various voice recognition technologies that are now available, including Amazon’s Echo for just over $150 and Google Home for a bit less at $130. Google Home, which is powered by the Google Assistant, can actually learn to tell different voices apart so Dad will get a more personalized experience. It also hooks easily into other Google programs like Gmail and Google Calendar and it will be happy to play whatever music he wants, remind him of upcoming events, let him know what the weather is doing and much more.
For Teens and Tweens: A Pre-owned Cell Phone
By the time they reach middle school, if not before, most tweens will start begging for a smartphone, using the classic argument that they are the Only People on Earth who do not have a cell phone. While parents may be okay with buying their kiddo a smartphone, many are understandably nervous about handing a tween or teen a small computer worth hundreds of dollars. Fortunately, there are a wide variety of high-quality pre-owned cell phones that are available for purchase through reputable retailers like T-Mobile. T-Mobile offers a great variety of pre-owned iPhones and Android-powered phones that feature many of the bells and whistles of the brand-spanking-new phones, only with a much more budget-friendly price tag.
For Young Kids: A Remote Control BB-8 Droid
Kids who adore "Star Wars: The Force Awakens" — and there are plenty of them — are sure to love a BB-8 droid that can be controlled remotely by an iOS or Android device. Available for around $100 at Amazon, this adorable robot will roll around in any direction the child chooses with the droid’s head floating magnetically on top of the toy. The toy comes with a companion app that includes plenty of cool "Star Wars" sound effects and the ability to record holographic messages. BB-8 will also learn the child’s voice and will respond and, the more they play with it, the more its actions will evolve.
