If your children are still adjusting to the at-home learning experience, then you may want to consider treating them to one of the following gifts over the holidays. Regardless of if your children are in elementary school or college, these gifts are sure to see their fair share of use.

VPN

If looking to keep your childs web broswing and data private you should consider buying a virtual private network (VPN) service for the tech-savvy student on your list.

A VPN service is a useful program that allows users to alter their digital identity and hide their activity. This is done by:

  • Encrypting your data
  • Changing your geolocation
  • Masking your IP address

There are several ways that students can make use of a VPN.

For starters, VPNs are perfect for students who rely on public WiFi — this is because VPNs use the latest technology and encryption techniques to protect your device from cyber-attackers.

If you happen to connect to the same public WiFi network as a hacker, they can potentially use it to access your device and compromise your personal data. Thankfully, when you use a VPN, the hackers won’t even be able to identify your device, let alone access your information.

Additionally, students can also use VPNs to access classified or hard-to-find information.

This is because you can use a VPN to bypass foreign media restrictions (often referred to as geo-blocks). This makes VPNs the perfect gift for young and aspiring journalists.

Wireless Charging Station

Few things are more inconvenient than unreliable phone chargers. It’s not uncommon to see young students using old, frayed chargers for their devices. Although these chargers don’t harm the phone itself, they can make the phone-charging process slower and less convenient.

If you’re looking for a gift that is guaranteed to be a hit, then you should think about grabbing a wireless charging station for the student on your holiday list.

Several models allow users to wirelessly charge multiple smart devices. Not only does this ensure a full charge, but it also helps students stay organized by reducing the number of wires in their workspace.

Cloud-Compatible Notebook

Many experts feel that physically writing down notes is beneficial for your mind.

Writing notes by hand is known to speed up the learning process by making it easier for students to recall important pieces of information.

Furthermore, writing notes by hand can help your child work on their penmanship, which seems to be a dying art these days.

If you’d like to treat your child to something special, you should wrap up a cloud-compatible notebook. These excellent tools use cloud-based technology to transfer handwritten notes from the paper to your computer. This means that your child can get the best of both worlds.

If you’re looking for a thoughtful and useful gift for the remote students in your life, be sure to consider the techy gifts listed above.
