Are you looking for a tech-savvy gift for your loved one? Check out my list of five modern gifts that are perfect for tech lovers!


I’ve focused on quirky modern gifts for lovers of gadgets, tech and futurism. There's something for everyone on this list. So don't wait any longer – take a look and start shopping!

1. FirePit+

While the campfire is, at its heart, all about a celebration of the magic and simple technology of combustion, that doesn’t mean that we can’t combine it with a slight, modern, technological advantage. The FirePit+ is a wood and charcoal burning fire pit that’s totally portable and can be controlled via a smartphone app.

It’s highly efficient, and the fan can stoke the fire into a raging hot yet contained blaze in minutes. The fan is rechargeable and runs for about 30 hours straight on a single charge. If you want a portable charging solution, you can also charge it with the 

2. BioLite SolarPanel.NOMINAL pen

The NOMINAL pen is a space-inspired pen designed and made by a London-based design studio, Mercator. The name itself, NOMINAL, refers to the term used during spaceship launches to indicate that everything is going to plan. The pen is precision engineered from 34 different CNC-machined components, most of them made from 316L stainless steel and aircraft-grade aluminium.

The lid features four, Falcon-9 style retractable legs, which means when you’re not using it, the pen can stand like a rocket ship on your desk. The mother of pearl end cap insert can be engraved with three letters for further personalisation.

3. Temperature Control Smart Mug

Something that most people struggle with for most of their life is drinking hot beverages when they’re at an appropriate temperature.

When you make it, it’s too hot - you put it down, and by the time you’ve remembered to drink it, it’s too cold, and you have to down it as a lukewarm shot. This smart mug by Ember allows you to choose your temperature, between 50-62.5 C. The battery lasts for up to 80 minutes, or all day if left on the charging coaster. It can be used with or without the app. 

4. Self-Sanitising Water Bottle

For the traveller who doesn’t want to get sick from questionable water sources or just the wary water drinker who wants a nice bottle, this self-sanitizing water bottle from LARQ would make a perfect gift.

Using their proprietary PureVis technology, the bottle utilises UV-C light to kill up to 99.8% of bio-contaminants that could be in the water, in as little as 20 seconds. It doesn’t have a filter that needs replacing, you just need to recharge the battery, about once per month.

5. Pure Fan Auto

Finally, we have this wonderful automatic fan. It doesn’t just move the air around the room it’s in - it filters contaminants out of it, like pollen, dust, bacteria and PM 2.5, while at the same time moving the air in order to optimally cool the space.

It has an air quality indicator that tells you how clean your air is, and has a quiet night mode so you can keep it on while you sleep. A perfect gift for those who suffer from allergies or just want to breathe nicer, cleaner air.

Hopefully, this guide has given you some inspiration on what gifts to buy that person in your life who is partial to a gadget (or 5!).
