2. Digets, $9.95

During the winter months, it can be difficult to use your favorite mobile device. Digets are handy little pins you can attach to your gloves that allow you to text while keeping your fingers warm. If you have an employee who’s always texting on the go, this would be a great tech gift to give them this year.

3. Scribd E-Book Subscription, $10

They can attach Tile to whatever they please and keep tabs on it by using the Tile app on their mobile device.

6. Pivot Power Mini, $19.99

7. Power Tube 2200, $39.95

This universal USB portable charger allows you to keep your gadgets fully powered whether you’re traveling for work or vacation.
