Christmas tree: check. Ornaments: check. Wreath: check.  The only thing left is the gift for your guy.

For the gamer in your life, check out the I-Cade 8-Bitty.  Forget the boring add-on smartphone controllers, the I-Cade 8-Bitty is a classic, retro-styled game controller that works with your I-pad, I-phone, and Androids, and costs about $10.

Looking for a more sentimental gift? Try the Lomography martphone film scanner.  First, you place your phone into the grip mount, and spool your negatives through the scanner.  A built-in light illuminates each frame, allowing you to take a picture with your smart phone.  Prices start at $59.

Another high-tech gift idea are Wi-Fi hotspot cuff links.  These hi-tech accessories deliver a pop of cutting –edge connectivity to any mobile office.  Simply install the included software onto a laptop, connect via USB and create a hotspot for all wireless devices.  It’s perfect for meetings or avoiding hotel Wi-Fi fees.  They start at $150.
