We’ve compiled a list of items for your techie friend that’ll make a perfect gift no matter what the occasion. Some items might even intrigue you to splurge a little extra on yourself as well! Let’s take a look:
Smart AC Controller or a Smart Thermostat
If your friend doesn’t already own a smart air conditioner, then you must have heard them saying they’re saving up money to get one. As convenient as smart ACs are, they’re costly too. But this is where you can help!
You can gift them a smart AC controller or a smart thermostat for their mini-split or central air conditioners, respectively. Believe it or not but a mini-stat or a smart thermostat can make any dumb air conditioner smart. They offer many smart features, including weekly schedules, geofencing, intelligent triggers for temperature and humidity controls, and more! In short, this small device will automate your friend’s cooling/heating needs without having them spend a fortune on buying a new smart AC. Your friend will be able to control their AC from anywhere, anytime!
And wait, there’s more!
These smart devices will help your friend reduce their AC costs by saving up to 25% of energy. They can also be connected to a smart home hub such as Google Home, Amazon Alexa, or SamsungSmartThings.
Click and Grow Smart Garden
If your techie friend also loves to cook, then the Click and Grow Smart Garden would make a perfect gift for them. It is a device that grows fruits, vegetables, and herbs without you having to worry about keeping a vigilant eye on the process. This smart indoor garden would add a fresh look to your friend’s kitchen and take their meals to the next level.

With this device as a gift, your friend would never run out of their favorite must-have herbs while cooking.
Sleep Headphones and Eye Mask
If your techie friend lives in an urban area surrounded by traffic, construction, or other sources of noise pollution, then gifting them sleep headphones and eye masks would make their nights less chaotic. You must be wondering that they must already own a pair of earphones. But wearing them while lying on your bed makes the experience quite uncomfortable, right?
This is where this sleep eye mask paired with Bluetooth headphones comes into play. This ingenious item not only blocks the light but also helps block the annoying noises ruining your night dreams.
The best part is that you don’t have to adjust your earbuds again and again or toss and turn to get that comfortable position where your ears won’t hurt.
Some masks available in the market come with a noise-canceling feature or produce white noise to provide a soothing and calming experience while you sleep.
