The holidays are almost upon us, which means it’s officially time to start rounding up great gifts for your loved ones. Buying friends and families presents that they’ll actually like (as opposed to some questionable homemade eggnog) can be a challenge — especially when there’s a tech nerd in the group. But there’s still hope! If you’re struggling to find an amazing present for the gadget hoarder in your life, check out CreativeLive’s list of 10 great tech-friendly gifts. All of these are gorgeously designed, super-functional, and will look fabulous under the tree.
Eastern Collective Cable ($25.95)
There’s nothing worse than a bunch of ugly cords and cables taking over your home office, but thanks to Eastern Collective, iPhone chargers have never been more gorgeous. These fabric-covered cords make great stocking stuffers, and the price is unbeatable.
Viddy Pinhole Camera (£38)
Viddy is a do-it-yourself pop-up pinhole camera that lets you take photos with real film. Made from screen-printed cardboard, it’s the perfect gift for gadget lovers, photographers and design-enthusiasts alike!
In The Garden iPhone Case ($30)
Words cannot describe how obsessed we are with this gorgeous floral iPhone case from Moorea Seal. Made with ferns and daisies, it’ll add a much-needed touch of nature to anyone’s phone.
Mason Jar Speaker ($65)
In case you aren’t aware, mason jars are super on trend. They’re basically a one-stop vessel for all your needs, and can even be turned into an amplifier for your phone or electric guitar! Trash Amps’ mason jar speaker lets you play music at events without having to cart around a giant amp, plus it looks pretty cool.
Tear Away Flash Drive ($39.95)
Possibly the niftiest thing on this list, these little flash drives from Gigs 2 Go easily detach from their credit card-sized packaging, and are made from recycled plastic and paper pulp. Completely awesome.
Smartphone Projector ($50.33 — pictured below)
Just stick your iPhone in this cardboard projector, hit play on a video, and watch your movie on the big screen (or a blank white wall, either way). Definitely the best gift anyone has ever given — or received!
Smartphone Remote ($21.99)
The key to taking the perfect group snap might just lie in this simple remote control from Mod Cloth, which lets you prop up your phone and take photos with the click of a button. A must-buy for the selfie-obsessed friend in your life.

Open up your camera’s photos, place your device on top of the Impossible Instant Lab, and voila — within seconds it’ll be printing analog photos! Think of it as turning your iPhone into a polaroid camera….

Finally, you can keep your ears warm while listening to headphones with this genius creation from Tryble! Yes, they’re slightly over-the-top nerdy — but also highly functional and majorly cozy.
