Looking for last minute gifts for your tech obsessed friend or family member? The good news is, getting a gift for someone with a smart home isn’t as difficult as it may seem. All it takes is a little knowledge of what they already have in place—are they a staunch Google Home user or do they use Amazon products? Do they have smart plugs in place already or not? With this knowledge in hand, it’ll be easy to pop by the shop and pick up some great smart home gifts for your loved one.
Every appliance or powered accessory is capable of being smart with the addition of a smart outlet. From a coffee pot to desk lamps, adding a smart plug allows the user to control to turn their electronics on and off at the touch of a button. This is a great, inexpensive gift that can give your tech-obsessed loved ones some more control over their home.
Smart Light Bulbs
If someone’s really into smart home tech, they likely already have a set of smart bulbs and their lighting is all set up to be smart. That said, you can always get them additional bulbs to replace—or expand—their system if it’s ever needed. If you want to get creative, try getting them smart light strips which can be installed in discrete places, such as under cabinets, to offer up some much needed lighting.
A lot of tablet owners tend to use their tablet to scroll through a music library or, if they’re cooking and using a recipe on their tablet for reference, to easily get through the recipe without getting their precious tablet dirty. That’s why a tablet stand is great for many tech enthusiasts and smart home owners! Be sure you’re getting one that is the right size for their tablet.
If you know someone who is just getting into smart home technology, their first home speaker may be the right choice. Whether you opt for Amazon’s Alexa or Google’s Home, there are a lot of options out there that are fairly inexpensive while offering a great deal of use.
