A potted plant or a bottle of wine used to cut it at housewarming parties. But with technology entering every aspect of life, it's hard to get by with something as simple as a fern. So, if you really want to impress your tech-minded friend at their housewarming party, check out these seven high-tech gifts they could use many days after the paint dries.
Connected Personal Assistant
Sure, a butler would be a pretty awesome housewarming gift. But because that would be pretty unreasonable and incredibly expensive, a connect personal assistant should be more than enough. Products like the Amazon Echo or Google Home are aesthetically pleasing and talkative pieces of artificial intelligence that will turn any new home into a hi-tech smart house.
Every housewarming party needs some solid tunes. Luckily, you don’t need a massive stereo system to get the party started. Bluetooth, wireless speakers can pack a powerful punch and they’re easy to set up for anyone with a smartphone.
Streaming Service Subscription
There's a good chance that your friend is using a streaming service to listen to their favorite brand. Be a pal and cover a month or two of Spotify Premium, Google Play or Amazon Music. That'll really brighten everyone's day.
Portable Photo Printer
No new house is complete without beautiful photos spread throughout the rooms. Portable photo printers can help your friend print right from a smartphone, making it almost too easy to turn those unforgettable digital moments into more tangible memories.
Wifi Password Coasters
For how important the WiFi password is, they're so easy to forget. To make sure that every device in a techie’s new household is properly connected, try printing the WiFi network name and password on some custom coasters. Next time someone asks for the password, you can just tell them to look under their drink.
Smart Light Bulbs
Sure, normal light bulbs work fine when it comes to providing light, but the technology behind them hasn’t really evolved for the greater part of the last century. Fortunately, with the invention of smart light bulbs, techies finally have a better way to adjust the lights on in their new house from their smartphone. Simply connect these smart bulbs to an app on your phone.
Phone Charging Furniture
No need to grab an extension cord to plug in your phone while relaxing on the couch. This high-tech phone charging end table by Ikea will do the trick. Plus it's stylish! Ikea has an entire line to choose from that will fit your friend's decor.
