HOLIDAY GIFT GUIDE: DON'T LET THE HOLIDAZE SET IN

Crazy%20Lady.jpg

Holiday shopping making you crazy and putting you into a "holidaze?" Have no fear! Even though there are only a few shopping days left, we are here to help see you through with our latest holiday gift guide. Let us help you decide what to get for the techie... okay... geek... in your life. Click continue to read on...

Beats%20Exec.jpg

Beats Executive Headphones

Welcome to the grown-up version of the Beats by Dre headphones. Get the amazing audio that made Beats famous in a package that is befitting someone heading to the boardroom and not the classroom. Featuring active noise reduction and easy foldability, these are the perfect take-along for the business traveler that wants to enjoy their music without looking like they stole their teenager's headphones. $300 from Beats by Dre.

Violent%20Lips.jpg


Violent Lips

Here's a gift for the glamour girl on your list... Temporary lip tattoos. While you may want to reserve the Union Jack version pictured above for the giftee on your list that typically sports a fluorescent green mohawk, there are many available styles including quite a few that are much less ummmm... British. On sale for $10 or less at Violent Lips.

Bose.jpg

Bose Solo TV Sound System

Does your swanky new flat-screen TV provide you a great picture but give you lackluster sound? The Bose Solo will kick your TV's tinny sound up to put your audio on par with your video. Proprietary DSP auto adjusts to keeps you dialogue sharp and your volume on an even keel at all times, providing the depth and detail you have been missing. $400 from Bose.


Hue%20Bulb.jpg

Hue Bulbs

Wi-Fi light bulbs? iOS bulb app? Yup. Philips has created a truly smart bulb system that allows you to control your lighting environment right from your phone. And, we're not talking just on and off. Try the ability to adjust them to every color in the spectrum - even adjust the temperature of your basic white light from cool blue white to warm golden white. So, with a few taps, you can go from a cozy reading lamp to homemade disco. $200 for a set of three bulbs and base controller from Philips.


Moshi%20Keyboard.jpg

Moshi Luna Keyboard

The beauty of this keyboard is evident in its sleek design - not just its looks, but also in its quality engineering (i.e.: individual scissor-key mechanisms). However, where it really shines (pun intended) is at night thanks to its elegant backlighting. The fully illuminated keys are enhanced by a halo lighting effect that is created by the clear border / wrist rest. So uber-geeky! Works with either Mac or Windows, but includes Mac-specific keys unlike most dual-compatible keyboards. $100 from Moshi.


Oxygenics.jpg


Oxygenics BodySpa Skin Care Shower Head

So, a showerhead doesn't seem so hi-tech, right? Well, this one may be the exception. Designed to pressurize the water flow (which has its own water-saving, environmentally friendly benefits), this showerhead has the added benefit of increasing the oxygen content in the water 10 times. Sounding like something you would actually find in a spa, the oxygenation creates negatively charged ions that counter free radicals... all of which, promises the manufacturer, will give your giftee rejuvenated, younger looking skin. Available in fixed or hand-held model. $39 and up from Oxygenics.


Macarons.jpg

French Macarons

These ain't your grandma's coconut macaroons (notice the spelling difference, even if the pronunciation is the same). Not too long ago these were one of France's best-kept secrets, but they have been spreading like wildfire in the U.S. Macarons combine an almond meringue cookie shell that is both crispy and chewy with all sorts of amazing fruit and creme fillings. Only the French could bring us something this decadent. Your foodie friend will appreciate this gift for sure! Assortments from $14 and up at Macaron Cafe.

G%20Shock.jpg


G-Shock Bluetooth Watch

So, how do you make your super-popular G-Shock watch line even cooler? Add Bluetooth, of course. Connecting to your iOS or Android phone via a free app, the latest wristwear from Casio will do things like alert you to incoming calls and e-mails, help you track down your misplaced phone, and sync your watch time with your carrier's signal. Its advanced Bluetooth 4.0 technology means you only have to change the batter every 2 years! $180 from Casio.


MontBlanc%20Hitchcock.jpg

MontBlanc tribute to Alfred Hitchcock

The latest entry in the MontBlanc "Great Characters" limited edition series pays tribute to the Master of Suspense, Alfred Hitchcock. The subtle details of the pen's design will be appreciated by the Hitchcock aficionado on your list, like the spiral design on the barrel reminiscent of the pivotal scene in Vertigo or the pocket clip that replicates the knife from the infamous shower scene in Psycho. Definitely a special gift for a special geek! $3,300 and up at MontBlanc.
