Gifts for the Tech Newbie
Holiday gift giving sometimes gives you the opportunity to expose those you love to something new. Give the gift of empowerment by upgrading the technological knowledge of a loved one. To do this effectively, you must purchase a gift that allows your friend or family member to learn more about technology without completely overwhelming them. These gifts make the perfect transition from tech newbie to tech savvy.
Even a person who is behind in many technological advances is likely to have a cellphone. A Bluetooth ear piece is an excellent way to help them free their hands while using their phone. These devices are simple to set up and also provide the gift of safety, as Bluetooth devices keep both hands free for driving.
A GPS is the perfect gift for the technologically unsavvy because they are not difficult to use. Most of the screens explain themselves, which makes it perfect for those that are unsure about high-tech gear. GPS devices open up a whole new world of travel possibilities because the gift recipient is no longer limited to traveling to destinations they find on a map.
Perhaps one of the least technological items on this list, a label maker is an excellent addition to any home. These low-technology gifts allow the recipient to organize their lives in a new way. Label makers have just enough technology to get your loved one working on electronics while being simple enough to figure out on their own.
High-tech gifts are not right for everyone, but there are low-tech options in the technology field that are perfect for beginners. Consider how familiar the recipient is with technology before making your purchase. Something that seems simple to you is not easy to learn for someone with no experience with technological gifts.
