Stocking Stuffers for Tech Execs

By D.P. Morrissey

Good things often come in small packages, and the latest tech goodies prove to be no exception to this sentiment. As the size of tech gadgets has gotten smaller, their impact on our work and our lives has become enormous. With this is mind, here are five pintsize gifts perfect for all members of the C-suite—or that technophile in your family.

GoPro Hero

GoPro’s HERO HD waterproof camera provides a great way to capture your first-person perspective, whether hiking in the Pacific Northwest or taking a tour through the Everglades of Florida.  Functions such as auto low light make it easier to achieve professional-quality video. $129 via BestBuy.

Star Wars Millennium Falcon Blue Print Cufflinks

Crafted from rhodium-plated base metal and enamel, these cufflinks are sure to bring out the creative force at the next C-suite strategic powwow. Sold by Bigflysports via $59.95 with Amazon Prime.

3-D Printing Pen

Have an idea that requires more than jotting something down on paper? This pen creates three-dimensional plastic drawings by extruding warm thermoplastic that hardens in seconds, allowing you to create three-dimensional freehand drawings. $99 via 3Doodler.

Vivitek Qumi Pocket Projector

With a brightness level up to 500 lumens and weighing only 1.1 pounds, the Qumi allows execs on the go to run through presentations from the comfort of their own hotel room. The projector also works well in a home-theater environment. Connectivity options allow it to be used with a variety of devices, including smartphones, laptops, netbooks and tablets, digital and video cameras. $399 via BestBuy.

Bose Quiet Comfort Headphones

The holidays might be the best time to invest in some in-ear noise-canceling headphones (sorry, Uncle Joe—but we’ve all heard that story before). The first in-ear noise cancelling headphones from Bose are perfect for listening to tunes or tuning out the noises on an airplane. $299 via Bose.
