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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
And one low-tech gift
“Insurance agent will work for cupcakes” mouse pad
Zazzle has other gifts for the insurance agent in your life – Christmas ornaments that say “Keep calm and trust the insurer” ($15.95), “Insurance agents are hot” posters ($24.50), and T-shirts that proclaim “And on the eighth day, God created insurance” T-shirts ($35.95).
