The holiday shopping season has already begun. I’m not sure about you, but I’m always eager to open a new gift. There are numerous incredible tech gifts to give, ranging from a new pair of earbuds to a cutting-edge e-reader.
What are the coolest tech gift ideas for your loved ones in 2021?
We searched the web for the coolest $100-$200 tech gifts in 2021. We looked for gadgets that are both entertaining and functional; ideal gifts for family and friends.
The new Kindle Paperwhite is the best e-reader we’ve ever tested, and it makes the ideal present for a bookworm. This model features a larger 6.8-inch display, a battery life of up to ten weeks, and adequate storage for hundreds of books. Additionally, it is waterproof and features a backlight that makes reading easier in the dark. We propose pairing this reader with a subscription to Kindle Unlimited, a subscription-based reading program that provides unlimited access to a library of more than one million books.

Ember Travel Mug
If you enjoy coffee, especially if you sip it slowly, the Ember smart travel mug is a lifesaver. It maintains a pleasant 135°F for coffee or tea right out of the box. The temperature of the mug may be adjusted between 120 and 145°F using the Ember app or by tapping the + or – symbols on the mug’s display.
Ember maintains the temperature of your beverage for up to three hours on a single charge, or you can use it all day with the supplied charging coaster. When the mug senses that you have finished your beverage (or after two hours), it will automatically turn off. Although it cannot be put in the dishwasher, the mug is IPX7 rated and totally submersible to a depth of one meter.
Fitbit Versa 2
Fitbit is a household name in the fitness tracker industry, and its Versa 2 model offers great value. It keeps track of your daily steps, calories burnt, heart rate, and total distance traveled. It also provides useful information about your sleeping patterns, such as the amount of time spent in light, deep, and REM sleep.
However, the Versa 2 does more than measure your health and fitness. The built-in voice assistant may be used to check the weather, operate linked smart home devices, and set a timer or alarm, among other functions. Additionally, you can receive notifications for messages, calls, and select apps. The battery can last up to six days depending on use.
Petcube Bites 2 Lite
Having a pet is a serious commitment, one that frequently interferes with vacation plans. The Petcube Bites 2 Lite is a food dispenser and motion camera system that makes sure your furry friend is fed while you are away from home and will allow you to monitor their behavior via full HD 1080p live streaming video. Additionally, there is a two-way audio connection that lets you speak to and comfort them from miles away.
Apple TV 4K
Apple TV is the ideal choice if you’re searching for a 4K streaming alternative for all your favorite shows from Netflix, Disney+, Amazon Prime Video, and, of course, Apple TV+ originals. Everything will sound and look incredible thanks to Dolby Vision, Dolby Atmos, and Apple’s A12 Bionic chip.
A Siri remote with a touch-enabled clickpad is used to control everything. Additionally, Apple TV allows you to access Apple-exclusive content such as Apple Arcade, Apple Fitness+, and Apple Music.

It works with both PCs and Macs, so you don’t have to worry about their device type, and it has nearly 13K five-star reviews, so you know this is a terrific choice for a tech gift.
DJI OM 5
DJI’s OM 5 smartphone gimbal is a handheld gimbal that is designed to create buttery smooth video shots that are difficult to do with shaking hands. Three-axis stabilization virtually eliminates camera wobble, while an inbuilt extension rod for selfie stick-related images allows for those out-of-the-ordinary positions. Accessories such as the integrated tripod stand enable users to set a shot and strut their stuff, while the associated app enables users to shoot more classic cinematic scenarios using useful presets. Intelligent features such as active tracking ensure that you are always in the frame as the DJI OM 5 follows your face.
Apple AirPods 3
If you’re shopping for someone who doesn’t want to be completely cut off from the outside world and wants a more open design, the AirPods 3 are worth considering. These retain an open-ear design without an ear tip, resting comfortably in your ear. They have adaptive equalization, hands-free Siri access, and a 6-hour battery life on a single charge. Naturally, they also seamlessly interface with all Apple devices.
Marshall Emberton Bluetooth Speaker
Every manufacturer these days offers a portable Bluetooth speaker, but Marshall’s retro-styled Emberton stands out from the rest. This compact speaker produces a massive, bassy, room-filling sound. While it looks on a desk or shelf, its modest weight (700g), waterproof (IPX7 rating), and 20-hour battery life make it equally at home in the wide outdoors.
