Whether you call yourself a member of this club or simply have plenty of friends who belong here, finding the right gift for any introvert can be tricky. That is why we compiled a list of some of our favorite gift ideas for the tech-loving gadget-geek in your life.
If you or someone you know loves to build and tinker, then the multitools designed by Zootility are a perfect and affordable gift. These sleek, stainless steel tools are designed to be as thin as a credit card and fit inside any standard wallet. Zootility manufactures several different designs, such as the PocketMonkey—which offers 12+ unique tools, the Headgehog—which comes equipped with a stylish comb, and the WildCard—the first retractable pocket knife that is as thin as your Speedy Rewards card.
NOMAD Lightning Carabiner
Do you know someone who never leaves home without their phone, keys, and wallet? If that’s the case, then the NOMAD Lightning Carabiner was designed with him/her in mind. This unique carabiner seamlessly combines the lightning charging cable designed for iPhones with a stainless steel reinforced carabiner that is easy to attach your set of keys too. NOMAD also sells a powerful cube capable of charging your iPhone when you aren’t near an outlet. Now, granted, there are plenty of portable chargers out there, but having one on you at all times simply by reaching for your keys sets NOMAD apart.
Tile Tracking Devices
On the flip side, we all know someone who would more than likely leave their head at home if it wasn’t attached to their neck. Well, we’ve got you covered too. Tile is a bluetooth device that fits on your keyring or in your wallet. Next you’ll pair the tracker with an easy to use app on your phone, and bam, never worry about losing your keys, wallet, phone, or laptop again. The Tile app lets you customize your trackers with unique ringtones that will alert you of your missing item’s location. If you happen to lose your phone, just press the button on any of your Tiles and your phone will ring (even if it’s on silent). Loving technology doesn’t mean you aren’t forgetful, so let Tile help!
Super NES Classic
While new tech is nice and shiny, sometimes a trip down memory lane can be the perfect gift for an introvert like myself. Nintendo’s new SNES Classic is a small, HDMI capable, replica of the oringSNES. With 2 controllers, power and HDMI cords, and preprogrammed with 20 games, this bundle comes fully equipped with everything you’d need to relive the glory days of some of Nintendo’s greatest hits. Just plug it into any TV, kick back, and spend your weekends playing Zelda and Super Metroid.
