GeekTechMarketing.com recently revealed that 35.8 percent of people surveyed put electronic gifts atop their wish lists. That’s better than jewelry, home décor and sporting goods ranked.
It can’t be just any tech gift. When you have an insurance agent on your list, you have a few options this holiday season.
Do you go for the playful side?
Cater to their industrious nature?
Give them a tech tool to help them at work?
Here are four suggestions.
Digital Treasures has the lifesaver for the smartphone and tablet user who pushes their batteries to the limit. The Power Flask – shaped, appropriately, like a flask – holds enough juice to power up three devices simultaneously. It works with any USB-charged device.
It’s perfect for your insurance agent because: Work hours rarely sit nicely in that 9-to-5 frame, and when you’re engrossed in a lot of Web work, your battery will decline a lot faster than you will.

Sony PlayStation 4
$399 (Best Buy)
Retailers sold 1 million units in 24 hours. That’s sizzling hot. The natural rival to Microsoft’s Xbox One, PlayStation 4 cuts a sleek profile, and takes up little room. We like the DualShock 4 controller, a reconstruction of PS3's. It’s also so much more dynamic than PS3, at a lower price.
It’s perfect for your insurance agent because: When you put in all that hard work, you deserve a chance to blow off a little steam.

To work (and play)
Amazon Kindle Fire HDX
The Fire has established itself as one of the best Android tablets available. Fire’s operating system has grown for HDX, and it includes Mayday, Amazon’s new customer-service feature. We even think it’s better than the Google Nexus 7. Paired with Amazon Prime and FiOS Internet, Fire really gets hot.
It’s perfect for your insurance agent because: It’s portable and versatile, and able to support useful work apps such as Buffer, Insurance Agent ON the GO and connectmogul – but also iPlayer Radio, Clash of Clans and Lift for some play time.(Image courtesy of Amazon.com)
On a budget
Modern Mix Tape
It’s a thumb drive masquerading as a cassette tape (if your gift recipient was born in the 90s or later, insert tutorial here). Just drag and drop about 15 of your dedicated iTunes songs to it, and it’s an instant modern mixtape. You can even label it, like we did back in the day. It’s Mac and PC compatible.
Just a few suggested tunes about selling to share with your favorite agent:
- "All About the Benjamins" - Puff Daddy
- "Money for Nothing" - Dire Straights
- "Take the Money and Run" - Steve Miller Band
It’s perfect for your insurance agent because: It’s quirky and retro, and will give them a good soundtrack to get them motivated on those days they need it most.
And one low-tech gift
“Insurance agent will work for cupcakes” mouse pad
