Shopping for thoughtful, interesting, and actually useful tech gifts used to be pretty simple. Grab a Sharper Image catalog, flip to a random page, point your finger to almost anything, and done. It’s way more difficult now. For one, uh, what’s a catalog, grandpa? Second, every gadget seems to get an upgrade every year, so even the best tech gifts tend to get outdated very quickly. And those new disruptors with the sexy, eye-catching packaging very rarely have any legs to stand on when it comes to functionality or longevity. If there are any good tech drops, get ready to drop a sizable chunk of cash on it.
Here at GQ, we know that it’s tough to keep track of all the worthwhile new tech among all the duds without pulling up a dozen review guides, which is where we come in. Here, we’ve gathered up a short list of some of our favorite new (and new-ish) tech gifts for anyone who actually knows what “Wi-Fi” stands for. This lineup includes plenty of GQ-tested and approved tech gadgets from our 2021, 2022, and 2023 Home Awards, plus some winners from our latest Grooming and Fitness Awards. Just make sure to stealthily check that your giftee doesn’t already own whatever’s in the gift box.
