We know how difficult buying presents for techies can be, so we're here with some guidance. Read on to find some gadgets that are sure to impress the cool kids on the block (or the family group chat). We hope this helps you cross a few names off your “nice” list.

1. Spectacles 3D Camera Glasses

It sounds like something from a spy movie, but these 3D camera glasses are the real deal and incredibly cool. This wearable gadget takes pictures and videos with the tap of a tiny, discreet button. You can upload content directly to Snapchat or export it later. The package includes a 3D viewer, charging case, charging cable and cleaning cloth.

3. Rocketbook Reusable Notebook

The Rocketbook isn't a typical journal — the pages are made of synthetic paper you write on with a stylus. Upload the notes and doodles to the cloud for storage and wipe it clean for a whole new round of journaling.

4. Osmo Pocket Gimbal Stabilizer

A pocket gimbal stabilizer is a thoughtful holiday gift for someone who loves recording videos but doesn’t have the latest iPhone. It’s compact and can be paired with just about any smartphone. Our guess is your techie will start using the device immediately.

5. Magnetic Levitating Globe

This gift is one we recommend purely for its cool factor. At an affordable price, you really can't go wrong with this globe that floats midair. Ideal for an office or shelf, this gadget is perfect if you have no idea what to give someone for the holidays. Be sure whoever gets it reads the setup instructions carefully, though, or the globe won't work correctly. Other than that, this MOKOQI globe is a seriously cool tech gift.
