Cool Tech Gifts for Young Adults – Men, Women, 20-40 something year olds

Choosing gifts for young adults is always difficult because it always seems like everyone has everything. For the holidays, you’ll want to choose something that the person does not already have, and could possibly use at least once in a while. You also want to stay away from things that the person may already buy on their own. Another thing you’ll want to avoid are items that require too many options, or are for a very specific crowd. For example, if you went to Chipotle or Subway, you wouldn’t want someone else to choose your lunch for you, you’d want to pick it out yourself. For this reason, many people just end up giving gift cards or straight up money.

The following list of gifts are what we think people will find cool and modern, and hopefully will not already have. They’re not the type of things you’d buy on your own, unless you are really, really rich, or really, really hipster. And even if they already have it, some things can be upgraded or expanded, like the Sonos.
