In case you haven't checked your calendar lately, it is officially November. While we think Christmas carols and string lights should wait until after Thanksgiving, we can't argue that it's time to start putting together a shopping list for our loved ones. Inevitably, there's bound to be a few gadgets on there. Tech always makes the perfect gift, and here's why:

1. It gives instant gratification.
We're torn between gifting our boyfriend with a trip or a new bit of tech for Christmas. But only one of those is going to be fun to play with on Christmas morning. Presenting a new device offers is more than just a gift, it's all all-day experience as you unbox it and figure out what all those buttons do.

2. There's something out there for everyone.
Whether the giftee in your life is a cook, photographer or even somebody that hates technology, there's a device out there that will appeal to his interests. And the guy who seems to have everything? Well, he could always use an upgrade.

3. Manufacturers always release new stuff before the holidays.
No matter how much you've got, there's always some new shiny thing to lust after at the end of the year. Companies with a revolving product line love to announce new releases before the holidays. And for techies, having the latest, greatest gadgets is always the best gift.


Of course, there's no such thing as a perfect gift, right? There's always a caveat: Gadgets and devices are expensive!
