Ah, technology! Some love it, some hate it, but we all use it! Our family limits screen time yet, I freely admit I appreciate technology that helps me get jobs done easier and faster! Like my iPad keyboard cover, software, or cool camera gear! So I put together some of my favorite really cool and useful tech gifts for any gifting occasion!

Streaming may be king, but a portable DVD player is handy for playing library movies and your old DVD collection!

Sonos Wireless Speakers are perfect for the music lover in your life. Gift one or a set for a custom sound experience.
A SeaGate Wireless Plus External Hard Drive is a gift of storage. Back up files (500+ movies, 1000s of songs, photos and docs on a 1TB drive), and bring them along! This drive creates its own WiFi network to access content on the go! Stream continuously up to 10 hours between charges! Stream movies on up to 3 devices, or stream photos, songs and docs on up to 8 devices at the same time! Find at Seagate or Amazon.
A Logitech Fabricskin Keyboard Folio for iPad gives stylish protection. It turns into a stand with hidden magnets. Closing the cover puts the iPad to sleep, saving battery life! Use the Bluetooth keyboard for full-sized easy typing. The raised key surfaces are perfect for a touch typist like me! Find at Logitech or Amazon.
