So what do you actually get the tech geek who already has everything? The simple answer to that is the latest and greatest of what’s out this year. If you’re really a pro, you’ll pre-order a lot of what’s going to be released later in the year so you can get a jump-start on the 2020 shopping season. Yes, we’re actually almost at that point.
When it comes to tech gifts there are as many options out there as there are preferences. This year just about everything worth its weight will be wireless, Bluetooth enabled, sleeker, smaller, and with longer battery life than ever before. Plus, we’re seeing almost all our picks as voice-activated, which can really keep things safe and, well, easier to use.
Shop our picks for some of the best new tech gift ideas for both men and women in 2020.
