16 Gadgets & Gizmos Santa Could Put Under Your Tree
Over the past couple of weeks, we have provided you with a lot of gift ideas. We covered gift ideas for boys and girls as well as toys for little kids and have an upcoming guide focused on games for that age range. We’ve presented various game suggestions including guides focusing on dice games, card games, party games and family games. With education an important topic for us, we crafted a list of STEM gift ideas also. But what about the gift ideas for teens and adults? There are many ideas mixed into those other game and STEM gift guides, but when it all comes down to it, it only makes sense to create a list filled with home and electronic gift ideas which is how we arrived at the following list.
Included in this gift guide you will find a variety of items for all ages, including adults. Whether you want to give the gift of a good night’s sleep or portable music options, we have suggestions! Does your gift recipient still wear a watch? Listen to music? Love gadgets? Play video games? Check out the list below (and all the other gift guides) to find something for a little bit of everyone! Look for the logo for a more in-depth look at that particular item.

Lots of interesting suggestions!
Thanks for all the suggestions!
Wow! I have never heard of the bed cooling gift. That would be perfect for my husband. I would love to buy it for him if it wasn’t over $100. That’s the only problem. Great list though!
These are awesome!! I know quite a few teens and young adults who would be totally stoked to see a lot of these under the tree on Christmas morning!
These all look like great gifts my boys and husband would love! That Meccano robot seems so cool- I’m going to have to put that under the tree this year!
These are some great games for your Holiday Gift Guide. Games are so popular and give families something to do as a family unit. Memories being made!
This is a great gift guide! My husband would like that watch, that is a really nice one. The robot sounds so amazing! I know my son has been wanting something similar, but there are so many on the market right now. This one seems like a great option for him.
These are all such great ideas!!! My kids would love those Star Wars drones! i definitely need to get one of those!
These sure look like great electronics! My daughter is asking for a couple of these on your list, actually! Very cool.
I’ve been on the lookout for Meccano Max for one of Oscar’s Christmas presents. It looks so cool, I just know he’ll love it 🙂
I had to get the Pokemon case from my son already and he loves it so much! A great gift alternative for a gamer not that’s not a game!
My lil’ lady loves using my phone to take photos. I think that camera would be just perfect for her!
My son has been begging for the Star Wars Battle Drone ever since we saw it in the store. I think we should get the LeapFrog Epic Academy for our daughter.
These are all awesome picks. I really like the DS XL Poke Ball addition. It looks really cool.
My son would love that Pokeball nintendo! Definitely a great choice for pokemon fans!
LeapFrog is a great idea for gifts, we’ve had a number of their products over the years and enjoyed them. The Pokemon 2DS would be nice for young gamers.
Wow… so many great techy gadget items. The tough part is deciding which gift but then for who. Two kids have asked for Drones and I love the idea of two different ones to tell them apart.
Great suggestions, but as Christmas has passed, these will be more for birthdays until next year.
Look forward to seeing what is here then.
Awesome suggestions on gifts, for all different people.
Lots of great stuff.
Funny you should ask me – “Do you prefer a basic watch or one that displays the date or offers other features?”. I had posted a reply on your facebook page which ansers this question. I had said the I must be old fashioned as I prefer a watch to just be a watch (though as I am a disabled pensioner who is retired, I do like the date and day on the watch as I sometimes forget – must be old age senility setting in (-: ), none of the wizz-bang fancy stuff, especially a smart watch.
it’s great post.i learn something new.i’ll try it my own.
This list is incredible! There are, for sure, three things on here that my grandkids want. Like the Star Wars Battle Drone & the DR1 FPV Race Drone & the Meccano M.A.X! I
have already been searching the Best Buy ads for some sales on them. Thanks for the info!
Awesome gift idea!!!
