Nomad Goods 1.5m USB-C Cable - $30

This braided USB-C cable is wrapped in Kevlar and has a moisture barrier to hold up to people of all ages. I've given these cables as gifts for several years now, and they're always a hit! You can charge all sorts of USB-C devices, both near and far —especially if you opt for the $35, 3m cable. Check it out here.

Anyone and everyone can benefit from an extra charging block. At up to 20W, Anker’s 511 Nano Pro charger supports PIQ 3.0 fast charging, which means charging your iPhone to 50% in about 25 minutes. Upgrade their charging!

AirTec Air Duster

AirTec Air Duster - $37

You might think a plug-in air duster would be a boring gift, but just wait until you see the joy in the eyes of anyone who turns this thing on and blasts away the layers of dust on their keyboards, in their gaming consoles, and on any other surface of their home. An electric air duster is a huge upgrade to the canned stuff. Shop Now!

Ring Pet Tag

Ring Pet Tag - $9.99

If you've got a pet owner in your life, consider this new product from Ring. It's not high-tech on its own — it's just a little metal tag with a QR code on it — but it's technically part of Amazon's Ring network. You register the QR code by scanning it with the Ring app and setting up a profile for your pet. Then, when anyone scans the QR code on your pet's collar, you're notified the moment it happens, and the person can help you reunite with your lost pet. Given Ring's brand recognition, I feel folks are more likely to scan the QR code on the tag if they spot it. Take a look!
