On trend: Tech gifts with sleek style
If the tech nerd in your life is also a fashionista, give a stylish and high-tech gift this year.
Pure's Sensia 200D Connect is so much more than a set of sleek speakers! This portable Wi-Fi music-streaming and radio system features a large color touchscreen and the ability to play on-demand radio programs, podcasts and ambient sounds. It can also stream millions of music tracks via the Pure Music subscription service, and it streams music from a PC or Mac. It also features social-media integration, doubles as a digital picture frame and offers weather updates and RSS feeds (Pure, $449).
Clear the clutter
Help the techie in your life clear the clutter from her desk with the NeatDesk high-speed scanner and digital filing system. This product's software employs Optical Character Recognition (OCR) and technology that identifies and extracts key information from paper and electronic files, and with a simple keyword search, your tech lover can easily retrieve the documents she needs in the blink of an eye (Neat, $400).
Give a classic analog Martian Watch that is also a high-tech Bluetooth voice-command smart watch. It allows users to talk, listen and control their phones — all from the wrist! The tech lover in your life can access all her smartphone's features — such as making and receiving calls, listening to and responding to text messages, setting notifications, playing music, searching the Internet and receiving social-media notifications — without ever taking her phone out of her purse (Martian Watches, $299).
Sexy wine dispenser
The Boxxle premium wine dispenser eliminates all the issues associated with old-school boxed wines. The sleek dispenser is pretty enough to display on the countertop, and the mechanism compresses the bag so the techie wine lover gets every last drop of his favorite wine (Boxxle, $100).
Sleek and secure backup
Backing up your files has never looked so good! The Seagate Backup Plus Portable Drive protects your stuff with backups, allows you to share photos and video via social-media sites and automatically backs up what you've shared online. It's also available in four sleek shades (Seagate, $90).
Tech lovers won't be able to keep their hands off the ContourRoam Hands-free HD Camcorder, which makes recording events fun and easy. The durable design is waterproof and super tough, so your techie can record even the most exciting of his adventures whether he's white-water rafting or running an obstacle course (Amazon, $200).
