My favorite gift picks for this year include a couple smaller items that’ll complement your Apple setup, one to help you cut the cord and one to make you fall deeper into Apple fandom. Only one of my picks is priced just slightly north of $50, so any of them should be good for Secret Santa or stuffing some stockings.
Rather than pointing out this year’s obvious tech gift wins, I’ve gone with a handful of items that you probably overlooked and were most likely omitted from other gift guides you’ve read so far this year…
Now it’s time for the most expensive item in my gift guide, but I promise it’s worth $59. Iconic: A Photographic Tribute to Apple Innovation should be on all Apple fans’ book shelves.
This large hardcover book includes introductions by Jim Dalrymple and Steve Wozniak and over 300 pages of content. All of the images were taken specifically for this book and span Apple’s major product categories: desktops, portables, peripherals, prototypes, iDevices (iPad, iPod and iPhone) and packaging. It’s a slam dunk gift for any Apple fan who’s seemingly impossible to buy for.
The Mohu Leaf Paper-Thin Indoor HDTV Antennas start at just $25, but are invaluable to any cord cutter. Simply connect the antenna to any HDTV with the included coax cable, run channel scan, and within minutes you’ll have access to dozens of HD and SD channels for no additional cost. Channel selection will depend on how far from a broadcast tower you are, so be sure to check this coverage map before making your purchase. I’m using one in my guest bedroom instead of paying my cable company for an additional HDTV cable box. I continue to be astounded at the image quality and channel selection it provides.
