It’s no secret that BA50s love books, and fashion, and lotions, and bling…but we also love our tech gadgets as well. So, when you’re giving (or receiving) a gift, don’t forget to consider going the tech route.We’ve done the research, but you do the buying! Here are our favorite tech gifts (and almost tech gifts) that we think our BA50 readers will really enjoy:
No, it’s not just the “man of the house” who is allowed to be the grill master. So if you’ve been waiting for some guy to give this too, forget about it…women grill too! “With its unique design, 200-foot Bluetooth connection and free accompanying app, iGrill is revolutionizing the way we cook and grill today.
This sizzling, one-of-a-kind grilling and cooking thermometer enables its users to multitask between grill and guests with the peace of mind that their food is perfectly cooked at target temperature and safe for consumption. The iGrill is powered by four AA batteries (included).”
Perfect for BA50s who are interested in monitoring their fitness levels based on their heart rate. Both a watch and heart rate monitor in one, the device shows you when your fitness is improving, and also displays calories burned during each workout.
You know that pile of vinyl records that’s been collecting dust up in your attic? Well, run on up there and get them and be the DJ of your dreams with this portable turntable. It runs on both AC power (with included adapter) or six D-sized batteries. And even though it is portable, you may not want to lug all those “priceless records” around, so with its USB connectivity, you’ll be able to “jack the turntable into your Windows- or Mac-based PC to easily turn your LPs and 45s into digital files.”
Remember waiting for the seltzer man? (No, we’re not implying you are anywhere near the age of someone who would remember that.) The SodaStream Soda Maker makes refreshing carbonated water/seltzer in less than 30 seconds. So you won’t have to sit on the stoop waiting for that guy any longer. (And yes, we know you never did that anyway, but it’s still quicker…and cheaper than running to the market.) And, BTW, the bottles are washable too…just don’t do what this BA50 did or the authorities will come looking for you!
How often have you had your run ruined because you were fiddling with your earphones? These earphones can be adjusted to fit the contours and curves of the individual ear, so you won’t have to deal with that any longer. The speaker unit itself can be moved up or down or side to side until the most comfortable and effective position is found. They look great (yes, that’s important too). And they sound great…perfect!
Any chef knows that keeping things neat and clean in the kitchen facilitates things, and this Techie gift will do just that. It gives you the freedom to use your tablet while you cook without worrying about touching your device with messy hands. The wand allows you to follow recipes and browse the Internet without having to constantly run back to repeatedly wash your hands.
Functional and stylish–what more could a BA50 want? The 360-degree swivel allows the iPad to rotate both vertically and horizontally while in the case. And if people don’t remember you when they see the Purple Crocodile leather exterior, we’d be very surprised.
