Gadgets They'll Love: Best Tech Gifts For 2016

The cream of the crop when it comes to gifts, is there anything more exciting than a piece of shiny new technology?

LIGHTSTORY Bluetooth Light Bulb, E26 Base 8W 6500K Color Changing Smart Light Bulb Speaker, Wireless Dimmable LED Bulb

This is an awesome color-changing oval-shaped LED Smart Light Bulb. If you aren't familiar with these, they're a new kind of light bulbs that become fully interactive when you load up an app in your phone and pair the bulb to it. You can change the color and intensity as well as set timer functions such as alarms to wake you up. What makes this bulb special is that it has a speaker which allows it to also play music. Using bluetooth you can pair your favorite devices and play music off of them. The colors and music provide for a type of experience you wouldn't normally expect from a light bulb!

All-New Fire TV Stick with Alexa Voice Remote | Streaming Media Player

In my opinion, the Amazon Fire TV Stick is the best streaming device of them all, cheaper in price than a Apple TV yet fully-featured, and a little more robust than Google's offering. Plug into your TV's HDMI port, connect to Wi-Fi and you'll be able to watch tons of On-Demand content from more than 90 apps like Hulu, Netflix, Youtube, Amazon Video, ESPN, and more! And if you need your live channels, you can get them through other apps like Sling TV, allowing you to fully replace your conventional cable system. This Fire Stick comes with Alexa voice recognition which allows you to speak out commands to the device, simply say "Launch Hulu" or "Play Stranger Things" and the device will respond accordingly. This is an excellent and cheap gift that can appeal to practically anybody!

Google Pixel Phone 32GB - 5 inch display ( Factory Unlocked US Version ) (Very Silver)

Google Pixel Phone is the latest and most buzzed-about phone. After a disappointing iPhone 7 launch, this phone is poised to take over the market. Fully-featured with a beautiful 5" screen, a Snapdragon 821 processor and 32gb of storage, this is very much a high-end phone. Add to that brand new features such as compatibility with Google DayDream, the new VR platform that only Google Pixel phones support, Google Assistant, unlimited cloud storage for photos, security features and more, you'd be hard pressed to find reasons to pick an iPhone over this badboy, price-wise it's a no contest.

HTC VIVE - Virtual Reality System

This is by far the single coolest and most exciting technology out there, there is nothing like Virtual Reality, and the HTC Vive is currently the most superior headset out there, with features that the Oculus Rift and PSVR just can't come close to. Beware though, you need a VR-capable PC to use the Vive, and those can be pricey. The Vive is a high-resolution VR headset that allows you to move within a virtual world, and using its controllers, you can grab and interact with virtual objects. The experience is indescribable until you try it and it is the latest and most popular in tech, not only for gaming but for other uses such as working, communicating, or consuming new VR media such as films, concerts and sports broadcasts. The Vive is the only headset to allow a true "roomscale" experience which allows you to walk and move within a space of up to 5m in each direction. The set also includes hand-held controllers which allow you to truly interact with the VR world, the Rift on the other hand only includes an Xbox controller, and its touch controllers must be purchased separately. At this point in time the Vive is simply one of the coolest and most exciting devices you can possibly gift to somebody!
