With the holidays quickly approaching, many of us are busy checking out the newest products to hit the stands and then using this research to carefully craft our wish lists. I like to use the holiday season to treat myself and my loved ones to fun things that we wouldn’t normally splurge on. It’s time to ban Christmas socks and wool sweaters. We can buy clothes throughout the year. Come the holiday season, I’m always looking forward to the fun gadgets that will have me swooning over how ingenious they are. If you’re in the same boat, have a look at these five awesome gift ideas that are perfect for the techie in all of us.
1) Oculus Rift Goggles
All I want for Christmas is a sett of Oculus Rift virtual reality goggles. These babies will take any movie or video game experience to the next level. As soon as you put on this headset, you’ll no longer be an observer, you’ll feel like you’re actually present – collecting those gold coins or grabbing spare lives like a boss. I can only imagine how terrifying watching a horror movie would be.

2) Ravean Jacket
Cold weather always turns me into the wimpiest creature imaginable. Winters don’t get too chilly where I live, but I do go up north to visit my family over Christmas – and let me tell you, it’s about time someone invented a heated down jacket. It only takes 90 minutes to charge, and then will give you up to 10 hours of heat, and it will also charge your smartphone! Made from water resistant materials, it seems like this jacket has thought of everything.
3) Mini-Clutch Speaker by Stellé Audio
An old purse of mine had a built in speaker that I loved despite how hideous it looked. Every time I took a trip, I’d bring that purse along so that I could listen to music while getting ready. It was also ideal for picnics, camping, barbecues, and the list goes on. For this reason, I’m thrilled to see that a much cuter and higher functioning version has been invented. This is definitely going to end up on my wish list this year.
4) Leafy Umbrella
Oregon can get hot in the summers, and everyone gathers under the trees for shade. Why not take the tree with you for eternal shade in the form of an ultra stylish leafy umbrella? Let the sun filter through the umbrella the same way it would naturally filter through leaves on a tree. This umbrella will give you the perfect amount of indirect sunlight.

It’s a bird! It’s a plane! No, it’s a quadcopter? How cool would getting a slick new quadcopter be? Imagine all the park days, lounging about as you fly your quadcopter over all the mesmerized spectators. Okay, I may be exaggerating a touch, but these things never cease to amaze me, and they’re pretty affordable too.
