The holidays are rapidly approaching and we now have limited time to find and buy last-minute gifts.

For those who spend their days writing code, building wireframes, or who are obsessed with all things tech, then finding, giving, or receiving a gift can be a challenge.

To help, we’ve pulled together a list of some of the hottest gift ideas that techies will love. So, if you’re looking for just the right gift, then check out the following.

Snapchat Spectacles
Produced by the company formerly known as Snapchat (now Snap Inc.), these specs are pushing the first-person camera industry forward. You can record video from your own perspective and share directly to your friends and family on the Snapchat app making for a more personal connection via video.

Apple Watch Series 2
In general, the second generation of any new device improves upon and corrects issues with the first. This is why we’re so excited for the Apple Watch Series 2 and its laundry list of fantastic new features, including:

  • Water resistance
  • Built-in GPS
  • A better and faster processor
  • A variety of aesthetic options

Nomad Key for iPhone and Android
This handy little device is like a digital Swiss Army Knife. The size of a house key, the Nomad makes on-the-go charging and synching an absolute breeze.

Amazon Echo
Say goodbye to Siri—Alexa is the new voice-activated personal assistant that every techie should have in their home. Not only can she answer all your burning questions, but Alexa can also dim the lights, order a product for you on Amazon, and even play Jeopardy.

Samsung Gear VR
While virtual reality is on its way to becoming everyday reality, it’ll still take some time before the equipment becomes affordable enough for everyone to acquire. In the meantime, this Samsung Gear VR is the perfect way for users to dip their toes in the waters of VR at a reasonable price.

Must-read Books for Tech Lovers

In addition to tech devices and products, there are also several must-read tech-based books that will make for excellent stocking stuffers.

So, whether you’re on the hunt for a good tech gift for a loved one or yourself, remember it’s the thought that counts!
