Coming home for Christmas without a gift is like going to a beach with a fur coat. Everyone will think you are weird. Even your grandma.
This is the second article of a three-part series about buying tech gifts for Christmas. Earlier we covered how to buy keyboard tablet covers. Now we'll cover super practical tech gifts that even your grandma can use.
You and every person on the planet who visits Tablet2Cases have either a phone or a laptop. It's a bold claim.
All your friends and family have one as well. That's a fact too.
Today we'll guide you to gifting phone cases, power banks and touchscreen gloves. These are easy gifts. If that's not enough, we'll top it off with laptop sleeves and a folding table that claims to be the "king of folding tables".
Let's start with gifts on a budget.
Mangata Cases has a phone case with a hidden wallet called Triton. It has a rugged outer shell that will protect your phone from drops.
A "secret wallet" comes out when you pull on a tab. It holds 2-3 cards and has space to store bills.
It's perfect for going to a bar or a coffee shop. No need to bring your purse or manbag. Whichever you prefer.
Everything you need is in your case. This product is on a heavy discount. Available for around $10.
Available for Apple iPhone models including Xs, Xs Max, Xr, 8, 8 Plus, 7, 7 Plus, 6s/6, 6s Plus.
Also available for Samsung Galaxy phones including Galaxy S9, S9+, Note 9, S8, S8+.
You didn't know that Mujjo is special. We don't expect you to. But they are the first company to launch a phone case with a wallet.
If you are looking for premium phone cases, look no further than Mujjo.
Mujjo was there first. Mangata Cases built on their idea. Apple's own phone cases compete with Mujjo.
Mujjo is that good. All their phone cases use premium vegetable-tanned full-grain leather. It's completely natural. When you look at the leather you can see each grain, as well as blemishes from the cowhide.
Accelerated leather aging is what makes Mujjo phone cases different. All their cases develop a unique patina. The cover will wear-in where you use it most. Distinctly yours.
Mujjo carries both plain leather and wallet leather cases. The phone case is fully wrapped in leather, hence the name - Full Leather Cases.
Available for all flagship iPhones and Samsung Galaxy devices.
Prices range from $44.95 to $54.95.
Let's assume that your family or friends don't have iPhones or flagship Samsung phones. They don't need Mujjo or Triton cases.
But they will do with a power bank. And not just any power bank. The Mangata Orbit is a 2-piece 5,000 mAh power bank set with a charging station.
Did you ever have a wireless home phone? It had a built-in battery that would charge when you dock the handset.
The Orbit works the same way. Dock the power bank to charge. No need to connect to a cable. The station is permanently connected to the power to provide the juice.
What's cool about this concept is that we often forget to charge the power bank. Most of the time because we are too lazy to plug it in.
The Orbit not only has a spare power bank in case you forget to charge but also saves the day when you are lazy.
It's also a great gift for a household. Keep it by the door near the exit. It's going to be a hit in the house. We guarantee it.
The Mangata Orbit is available for $39.95.
Can you get any more practical than gloves? How about phone-friendly gloves?
Mujjo has the most sophisticated range of touchscreen gloves. Fused with silver particles, all parts of the glove work with the touchscreen. Not only fingertips.
North Face has similar gloves called Etip. The "power on" icon on the fingertip is tacky. It's not fit for a $50 glove. They cost the same as Mujjo but are worse in design, craftsmanship, and looks.
Mujjo touchscreen gloves are arguably the best gloves on the market. Lined with 3M Thinsulate single or double insulation. Good for extra cold weather as well. Retails for $49.95 and $59.95.
If you are on a budget, then Mujjo also has Knitted gloves with double-layered insulation. Available for $34.95.
Tip: When you gift them, say "no one wants to take their glove off to scroll through Instagram, we’re better than that." Then stay silent for five seconds. It should impress even more.
A self-proclaimed "king of folding" tables, the Cooper Mega Table lives up to its slogan and name.
The Mega Table is large, really large. Like a king-size bed, it's surface area fits a 17" laptop, a mouse pad, a bookstand, and a tablet standing in a dedicated groove. Pull out the side drawer to stand your mobile phone and coffee mug as well.
If you are trying to fit more on the table, you should consider decluttering. Marie Kondo has a good book on that. A bonus gift idea?
It's easy to store as well. You won't need to take it to your garage to store. The large surface comes with a slim profile. Fold the legs to store the table under your couch or behind the closet.
As the table has a fixed height, its very sturdy. It can support 40kg / 88lbs. Definitely heavier than your HP laptop from early 2000.
It's ideal for students living in dorms and people working from small apartments. Use it as a bed desk while you are healing a foot injury, or a couch desk while watching TV.
The Mega Table a premium folding desk. It's the Audi of foldable tables. It comes with all the bells and whistles with raving reviews on Amazon. It's no wonder it's marketed as the King of Folding tables.
As it's a large item, worldwide shipping is not possible. It's only available for customers in the USA, Australia, the EU and the UK for $59.95.
If you want to impress someone who has a Macbook, get them this laptop sleeve.
Praised in Forbes, New York Times, Elle and Vogue for its functionality and form. The case has a thick leather flap attached to a wool felt sleeve.
Several pockets keep it practical for storing small items. It's designed for Macbook with easy travel and portability in mind.
It's available in three sizes to fit any 12-15"-inch Macbook Air or Macbook Pro. Priced as $69.95 and $74.95.
