Sure-to-please presents for the gadget-minded people in your life

Tech gifts can be tough to choose and buy, largely because pretty much everyone these days is into tech. The most popular headphones in the world are true wireless. More people watched this year's League of Legends championship than the Super Bowl. My parents know how to use Bluetooth speakers. The phrase "tech-savvy" has pretty much lost all meaning, so how can you get something for the tech-inclined people in your life that feels thoughtfully considered? Honestly, we don't know, but to get you thinking about it, we've gathered up a list of our favorite tech gifts. It includes an excellent e-reader, a dock for your computer, and a fun laptop cleaner (yes, it turns out a laptop cleaner can be fun, believe it or not). Just make sure to stealthily check that your giftee doesn't already own whatever you decide to get for them.
