December 13, 2018 The TNS Group

Not sure what to get the “techie” in your life this holiday? Don’t worry we’ve got you covered! Here are our suggestions for the top tech gifts of 2018.

$500 and under

Monoprice Voxel 3D printer

It’s the gift that keeps on giving… what’s better than one gift? A gift that makes more gifts! 3D printers have come a long way in the last few years. This model is easy to use and will have your cousin printing everyone Superman coasters by dessert.

Anki Vector 

Imagine an Alexa or Siri that you can play with! The Vector robot answers questions, rolls around and snaps photos simultaneously, and the Anki Vector responds to voice commands much quicker than its predecessor Anki Cosmo. This is the perfect gift for any AI lover!

Nintendo Switch

This is the ultimate gift for the gamer in your life. The Switch is a must-have gaming system that “switches” from a TV console to a portable system. It will also be fun for the whole family if you pair it with a multi-player game such as Super Mario Party, Mario Kart 8 or Overcooked.

Apple iPad

Oldie but a goodie! The 9.7-inch iPad is a perfect entry level iPad for the teen that has been begging for one, and there are many holiday discounts that are getting it down to around $250. So, your too-cool-for-non-name-brand-tech teen can have the Apple product they want without breaking the bank!

Artiphon Instrument 1

This electronic guitar gives the feel of a real guitar, but allows you to make killer electronic beats. This unique instrument is perfect for any musician because it feels like a real guitar, but has simulated frets and strings. 


$200 and under

Google Home Hub

This smart display differs from its competitors such as Amazon’s Echo Show, because it has a much smaller and sleeker design and has no built-in camera. Google’s first smart display includes Google’s services and is more affordable than other smart displays.

Vizio SB3621n-e8

This sound bar has the quality and look of an expensive speaker, but much more affordable than its competitors. Perfect for the movie buff in your family, watching movies with this bar will give them movie theater quality sound at home!


$100 and under

JBL Link 10 

This is a great entry-level portable speaker. JBL has Wi-Fi, Bluetooth and it is voice enabled with Google Assistant. Great gift for any music lover that is constantly on the go!

Super Nintendo Classic Edition 

This is the best gift ever for the nostalgic person on your list! Let them relive the glory days by playing the original Super Mario Kart and Street Fighter II on the Super Nintendo Classic Edition. Nintendo released a limited supply of these earlier this year, but now they are available at Walmart.


$50 and under 

Echo Dot (third-gen)

This Echo Dot has a much clearer sound than its predecessors and is likely to be on sale at many stores this month. This is the perfect gift for the person on your list that isn’t so tech savvy because its easy to use!

Tribit XFree Tune

This Bluetooth headphone has the best quality sound of any headphones in its price range. The wireless headphones are available on Amazon for $50 including a case! This is a great gift for an office secret santa!
