If you’re shopping this holiday season for someone who seems to have everything tech related, we’ve got a couple of cool and out of the box suggestions for you. While they may not need hardware they may be interested in being more comfortable. Gamers know that unless your set up is super comfortable you can suffer all things from a sore back to carpal tunnel. Here are some things that your tech obsessed friend might not even know they want until they use it the first time.
NerdyTech Couchmaster® CYBOSS
An all inclusive lap desk that you can set on your couch or your bed. The Couchmaster CYBOSS has space for your laptop to vent and a slot where you can also set your iPad or tablet. The cushions are larger than their other models so it will fit around most everyone. There are also pockets on the cushions themselves to hold things like pens, pencils, water bottles and whatever else you’d need to get some work done.

DUEX Plus Second Monitor for Laptop
The DUEX Plus second monitor for laptop is the perfect gift to give someone who games on their laptop. It provides a nice screen to help reference things that they may need help with in game. Instead of having to exit out of the game screen they can just move the mouse over left or right and search it up. This monitor not only works for laptops but the Nintendo Switch and Android Phones as well. It’s plug and play so you can use it to watch a movie from your phone or play a game on a larger screen on the go. Full review coming soon. Check out the product page by clicking the link here.
iFixit Pro Tech Toolkit
When things go wrong, you’ll need a toolkit! It’s crazy how many people with computers don’t actually have the tools on hand to fix them. The iFixit Tech Toolkit is a smart and useful gift. Check it out here.
Solar Power Phone Charger
A Solar Power Phone Charger will keep your friends connected even when they’re out of battery. Besides playing/working on the computer they may also love hiking and nature walks. This will keep their phone juiced up while they go out and play for a while. It also has a couple flashlights that can help them if they stay out til after it gets dark. Check it out here.
Lumbar Support Pillow for Office Chair
This cushion can be used in an office chair or even in the car. The Lumbar Support Pillow can keep someone’s posture good while also providing extra support where it’s needed, the lower back. They might not think they need one but once they use it they’ll never go back. Check them out here.
Carpal Tunnel Wrist Brace
You can probably tell by now that this list is created by someone who’s old and uses the computer a lot. But even if you’re not old, you may still suffer from carpal tunnel. In my early 20’s I would get the worst carpal tunnel from playing World of Warcraft all the time. I would have loved a set of these carpal tunnel wrist braces. Plus they look pretty cool when they’re both worn at the same time. A cool techy fashion accessory. Check them out here.
These headphones are perfect for anyone who spends all day gaming. They’re comfortable and when connected to Discord provide clear audio to your teammates. Some headsets can have a bad mic but these have a great one. They also have a mute switch so that you can shut your mic off from the cord which is nice for when your kids walk into the room demanding things. They also have a volume limiter so that your ears don’t get blown out if you forget to modify the volume before launching your game client. And, I’ve been in situations where I needed backup headsets because my primary pair broke. So even if they already have a headset they love, this is still a pretty great gift choice.
