Gifts for laptop owners are a dime a dozen. Still, it isn’t that hard to choose a great gift that will please even the most gadget-loaded technophile. You just have to know where to look and what to look for. 

When it comes to laptop owners who are joined at the hip with their portables, the perfect present is all about portability and functionality. Sure, you can get them yet another Star Wars mug, a novelty lamp that they might not actually need, or a Funko Pop! vinyl figure that would only clutter their space – just because they’re fun. Or, you can actually get them a gift out of which they can get a lot of use.

Whether it’s a digital nomad traversing the whole world, a content creator, or a multi-tasking monster you’re finding a present for this holiday season, you’ll find something from our selection below. Get ready to be the best gift-giver in the family this year.
