Finding gifts for men can be more daunting than you think. When clients request their virtual assistant to find a gift for a client or employee, the usual suspects tend to crop up: a bottle of wine or champagne, a gourmet hamper – you know the ones.
Things get even more tricky when the recipient is a close family member or a friend. Of course, it all depends on the budget your client has in mind and whether it’s a special occasion if any. There are so many (too many!) possibilities, but if you want to source a gift for someone who has an interest in technology, here are a few ideas that we have shortlisted for you.
Our number 1 choice: the Cicret Bracelet by CN2P. Have you heard about it? It’s a water-resistant wearable that should be launched towards the end of 2016. It works like a tablet but on your skin. You heard me …
This bracelet enables you to read your emails, check out the weather, read a book or answer a call when you’re out and about or relaxing in your bath.
In other words, your arm becomes your touch screen thanks to some clever sensors and phone screen mirroring system that projects the interface of your phone on your arm. Or something like that…. This is one very smart gift for men (and women!).
Speaking about projection, a virtual keyboard is another great gift idea. If you have to draft a long email or prepare a presentation away from your laptop, not having a keyboard can be a burden. With this laser projection virtual keyboard, you can type away as long as you have a flat surface nearby. Available at Brookstone and Bluetooth enabled, this keyboard can work with your phone or tablet.
If your other half faces punishing commuting time or travels on business a lot, a pair of earplugs may also be the ideal gift for him. Hush™ smart earplugs allow you to isolate yourself from your surroundings (snoring of your colleagues on the train, screaming baby on a plane, town crier in an ancient English village) thanks to a combination of sound-eliminating foam and noise-masking: an in-ear speaker plays a track to mask any residual sound that the earplugs do not block out. These smart earplugs block sound up to 70 decibels. Pretty effective noise cancellation technology.
Clip-on lenses for his mobile phone might be another option especially if he is into photography and spends a lot of time on social media. There are a lot of lens types on the market but the 4-in-1 by Olloclip is easy-to-use, compact and lightweight.
