Cyber Monday Tech Gift Guide 2018

The Best Cyber Monday Deals for Technology Gifts


Cyber Monday is such a fun shopping day for the latest tech gifts this holiday season. From gadgets and game consoles to headphones and smartphones, there are some great deals to have. This Cyber Monday tech gift guide was so much fun to put together. I tried to include some new and different gift ideas — especially for the techie who has everything. The drastically reduced pricing of impressive smart TVs, phones, computers, audio products and more would not be imaginable a few years ago. As always, check for the best pricing online before buying.


IrisScan Book 5 – IRIScan Book 5 will scan anything, anytime. This device passes over documents, eliminating the need to separate pages from a book or magazine to have them pass through a scanner. Articles, legal documents and even visuals are immediately scanned. These documents can then be saved on the cloud or on an external hard-drive, to ensure the most important information is always accessible, anywhere, anytime. Recently, a friend asked me to send him a chapter from a book that is no longer available in print. It took me less than 3 minutes to do him the favor of scanning the chapter with IrisScan Book 5 and he was reading in within minutes.

Eero WiFi System – When was the last time you attempted to count every device in your home that uses your WiFi connection? Chances are that in 2018, you have over a dozen devices vying for as much of your precious internet connection as it can get. That number is only going to increase in the coming years. If you’re like me, you get frustrated when a device like a smart TV is buffering because it can’t get enough of your WiFi. eero is the solution for this. eero eliminates WiFi dead spots, buffering and endless reboots when connecting the rest of the smart home products. eero is fast, effective, secure and requires minimal setup. In less than 10 minutes, you’ll be up and running… and you’ll quickly forget when you didn’t have enough WiFi juice to power everything in your home.



Shinola Detroit Bluetooth In-Ear Monitors – Okay, so I might be a little biased here because I’m born and bred in Detroit, but I LOVE everything Shinola. Their watches and leather goods are beautiful and last year I fell in love with their over-ear headphones. Now Shinola has designed and developed in collaboration with Campfire Audio a professional quality sound on the move with the added convenience of simple wireless streaming.  The Shinola Bluetooth In-Ear Monitors can be paired with any of the most popular Bluetooth-enabled devices such as a phone, tablet or computer. At only $250, you’ll be jamming to your music in style and repping the iconic Detroit brand.

Blue Yeti Nano Microphone – When I started my own podcast last year, I realized how important high-quality sound is for a podcast. You really don’t want to sound like an amateur when you’re hosting your podcast and that’s why the Yeti Nano is ideal for the budding podcaster. At only $99, this premium USB mic delivers Blue‘s legendary studio-quality audio in a new compact and streamlined design. The mic comes in four sleek styles that look great on camera and on any desktop. Yeti Nano is essential to any creators wishlist. Even if you’re not going to podcast, this is the best mic for the money when it comes to sound quality for video conferencing or dictating documents.

Dozzi Natural White Noise Machine – It seems like with each passing year, it’s more difficult for me to get a complete, uninterrupted night of sleep. The only thing that helps is a noise machine and, once again, The Grommet has found the best gadget of that category. The Dozzi modern sleep noise machine has a fan inside that creates soothing white noise, unlike others that use sound recordings. Give it a twist to open the airflow vents and amplify the sound. The device has a sleep timer, USB charger, and color-changing nightlight, and it’s small enough to take with you on vacation in order to get a good night’s sleep. It’s also useful to keep sound in if you want to maintain privacy in your office. I’ve actually used it at my office for private meetings and then brought it home to guarantee a good night’s sleep. Available at The Grommet with a Cyber Monday discounted price of $37.46 (regularly $49.95).
