Gift Guide: Gadgets, Gizmos & Tech

by Maxwell Tielman


Tech gift guides can sometimes feel like the neglected middle children of Gift Guide Land—too often I see them populated with afterthought items, a perpetuation of the notion that tech can’t be pretty. Well, dear readers and fellow tech obsessives, I am here to tell you that this does not need to be the case! Why choose between form or function when you can have both? From Allied Maker’s wonderfully whimsical cloth-covered extension cord (above) to Karlsson’s retro-fabulous flip clock, these gifts will satisfy both the tech junkies and the design savants on your holiday gift lists! Check out all of these wonderful gizmos, gadgets, and electrical doohickeys after the jump! Power on! —Max
