Apple iPad Air 2 MGKM2LL/A (64GB, Wi-Fi, Silver)
It’s not hard to find someone that wants an iPad and everyone has at least one person in their life that would be eternally grateful to unwrap your gift and find one of these inside. However, they won’t last long, so get it sooner than later and have it in time to bring a huge smile to someone’s face.

Samsung Galaxy Tab S
If Android is your flavor, then this is the device you want. Everyone also has at least one person that loves Samsung and would not mind it one single bit if they unwrapped one of these.

For the Star Wars fan in your family (every family has one or more). You’ll score major points with this baby. It’s also a perfect thirst quencher while waiting for Star Wars Episode VII.
Ubisoft Assassin’s Creed Unity Phantom Blade
You won’t have a hard time pleasing a gamer with one of these. It’s releasing in time for the holiday season, so be sure to order one or more before they are sold out. I bought one to play with and one as a collectors item. No pressure…

Here is another item that the gamer is sure to love. Also from the Assassin’s Creed collection, and we like these over many others because AC has one of the biggest fan bases among gamers. Which means it won’t be hard to make someone happy with these as a surprise.

Advanced Elements 5 gal. Summer Shower
How cool is this one?! Anyone that loves to camp will undoubtedly appreciate this. However, don’t stop there. I would suggest stocking up on a few of these yourself as well to prepare for the zombie apocalypse. You’re going to miss those showers when they are gone!
Arkon Center Extension Car Seat Tablet Headrest Mount for Apple iPad Air iPad 2 Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1 Galaxy Tab Pro 12.2
I can’t imagine someone not finding this useful. The kids always want to play with the tablet on those long trips and this sure beats holding it the whole time. Not every car comes with a mounted screen for watching movies and cartoons, and this nice item provides a much cheaper mounting solution. Why not get one for yourself too!
Photojojo Smartphone Spy Lens
There isn’t enough spying in the world. Gift this to your favorite secret agent for some brownie points. Of course you’ll need to remember they have this and going forward be very careful what you say and do around them.

Anyone that travels will love this space saving adapter that will get them some much needed juice in 150 countries! Not only is this fantastic for the corporate traveler, given it’s highly afforadable price, why not keep one around for your vacations. You may not use it often, but when you need it, it’ll come in handy.

Cat Scratch DJ
Cat’s are everywhere these days. You can’t open a web page without seeing something with a cat. Everything from sleeping to jousting. I don’t think we have any DJ cats out there, so I can’t wait to see the videos and meme’s this will result in. I know, I know…we need more meme’s like we need more pathogens.

MakerBot Replicator Desktop 3D Printer – 5th Generation
It’s not cheap, but who doesn’t want one of these?! There really isn’t much I can say about a 3D printer, it pretty much speaks for itself. The cool factor alone will excite anyone. Instead of watching videos of what other’s are making, you can be making your own cool stuff.
Apple MacBook Pro MGXC2LL/A 15.4-Inch Laptop with Retina Display
And last but certainly not least, this bad boy will please anyone in your inner circle. Let’s face it, even die hard Microsoft followers will agree that the Mac is a very cool piece of equipment. I know, because I’m one of those. Maybe someone in my family will read this and get me one. hint, hint…
