Smart Home Gadgets
A gift can go a long way in making a difference in someone’s life, and it can start in the home. There are all sorts of smart home gadgets. Smart speakers, smart cameras, and smart calendars are all great gadgets to incorporate into a home. A smart speaker like the Amazon Echo or a Google Nest that works with just the sound of our voices preps a home to become a futuristic paradise. If the tech enthusiast in your life is really into automating household tasks like turning the lights on and off, these speakers integrate with other smart home devices. SmartMove shares a comprehensive list here if you want to get started on building that futuristic paradise.
Another great smart home gadget gift is a smart camera. A Ring can replace a doorbell, or an Alro is the first all-in-one sensor and is a great option as well. These act as virtual peepholes, allowing individuals to see and communicate with visitors from anywhere using a smartphone — quite convenient! You can also check on all those Amazon [and other] deliveries. Whether at home or away, this gift provides peace of mind. Or, if the tech fan in your life is a pet lover as well, a Blink is a great indoor camera to check in and say hello to those beloved fur babies.
Calendars have always been both a go-to, great, and practical gift. Our final smart home gadget idea is a smart calendar. A Skylight Calendar steps it up a notch. It’s a touchscreen digital calendar that also has an integrated grocery list and a meal plan feature. These capabilities help with what may seem like such small tasks, but they provide organizational solutions for a home!
Popular Personal Presents
Tailoring a gift to someone personally shows thoughtfulness and consideration — like recognizing an individual has a deep passion for music. Wireless headphones and earbuds are great gifts. Whether it’s the gift of Apple AirPods, Sony WH-1000XM5, or the Jabra Elite 85t, all are phenomenal when it comes to providing an immersive audio experience. They offer exceptional sound quality and noise-canceling features.
Is your techy also sporty or trying to be more healthy? While most people have a fitness tracker or a smartwatch, there are newer models available, so you could look at giving them the gift of an upgrade. Some great options include the Fitbit Sense or the Apple Watch Series 9. These smart watches offer fitness tracking and health monitoring, blending technology seamlessly with health consciousness. Like a personal sidekick or cheerleader, they track your steps, heartbeat, and even send reminders to get up and move. A smartwatch is more than a gift; it’s a daily dose of fun and functionality.
Another great gift that shows you are really trying to personalize the present is choosing the perfect portable charger. It’s thoughtful because it shows you care about someone’s connectivity and convenience — you want to make sure they never miss a moment or an important call. High-capacity power banks from Anker ensure that devices stay charged, but if you’re looking for a great desk or nightstand charger, a favorite in the St. Louis KM hub is the JoyGeek 3-in-1 Wireless Charging Station. Wireless Charging Station — perfect for charging your devices on your desk or nightstand.
Perspective Altering Packages
Wow with the gift of a whole new perspective with a stellar portable camera! Photography and videography gadgets capture moments in high definition. The DJI Osmo Pocket 3 or GoPro Hero 10 are great options for those passionate about catching life’s adventures and memories. These portable cameras are ideal for action shots. Or, help someone take their perspective to the skies with the DJI Mini 2, a drone camera to explore the world without gravity limitations.
A step above a new perspective is the gift of a different universe. Meta’s Oculus Quest 2 is an all-in-one VR headset for gaming and entertainment. The immersive technology transports users to different worlds via games, movies, virtual tours, and more. What a fabulous gateway to entirely new dimensions! Technology really has come such a long way.

The Ultimate Tech Gift — in KM GREEN!
For the final gift idea, we wanted to highlight the Piaggio Fast Forward Gitamini. The gitamini is a cargo-carrying, following robot, and how cool is a robot?! This may be the first step to Baymax from Big Hero 6! Some people use it to carry produce home from a local market or as extra storage for personal items that may not fit in your bag. While it may be out of your price range, a personal robot companion would be a pretty incredible gift! And, we may be partial, but we love that it comes in KM green!
