Hot Tech Gifts for Last-Minute Shoppers

Assistance in finding the perfect last minute present.

Despite efforts to wrap up holiday shopping early this year, many people find themselves with long lists but short on ideas and time. If you’re in this position, you’re not alone. In fact, last year, the single busiest shopping day of the Christmas shopping season for many stores was Christmas Eve. And this year, you’re in luck, as there is an unprecedented array of tech gifts for all those on your list – from the gamer to the music enthusiast to the fitness fan.

Toddlers to teens will know that Santa gets them when they open a new gaming accessory or toy. The Leapfrog Mr. Pencil Stylus, for example, offers fun, interactive activities that help toddlers learn to write. For older kids, there’s the MOGA Pro Power that transforms an Android device into a mobile gaming system for extended play and fun.

For the music lover, there are loads of cool speakers designed to fit every budget. Two options are the JBL Micro II Ultra-Portable Multimedia Speaker that offers powerful sound in a speaker small enough to fit in a bag, and the Ultimate Ears BOOM, a Bluetooth speaker that delivers exceptional audio clarity in a room, at a party, or for music lovers on the go.

Make a splash with the water-resistant, stylish Fitbit Flex wristband for the fitness enthusiast on your list who wants to track and monitor activity and sleep patterns. Or get the UP by Jawbone for the sporty student or the routine gym-goer who’s looking to get a step ahead in their workouts. The wristband tracks your movement while awake or asleep and analyzes trends to help set fitness goals.

So consider it a wrap; drop by your local Verizon Wireless store or go online for an abundance of choices.
