Top Christmas Tech Gift Ideas 2016

The most festive month of the year is here and we couldn’t forget to share our wishlist with you and give you some inspiration for gift ideas. This is quite a special wishlist, because it’s what the Bare Conductive team would love to get this Christmas, whether or not these dreams will come true…

We thought that it’d be more interesting if we reveal one product each day, so you’ll have more time to research and find out more about it. Similar to the 12 Days of Christmas, but a bit earlier.

So, let’s see what Bare wants this year.

Matt and Becky would like to get a Boosted Board, because Electric Skateboards are just so cool. Boosted boards look beautifully manufactured and discreetly add a magical function to an otherwise unassuming longboard. They make an awesome “I am from the future and I am riding an electric skateboard” noise too. They can also beat the inter-city cycle ride both in speed and style says Becky, who’s cycling to work. Let’s admit it. Who wouldn’t love to get one of those with a loaded deck, custom trucks and ride modes, regenerative brakes and orangatang wheels?!

Our engineer, Stefan would love to get a Boldport club membership, so he’ll be able to play with some beautifully designed, thought-provoking and useful electronic projects. Check it out yourself and we’re sure you’ll love it! He also recommends for all parents out there to get some Kidesign Densters for your kids. These beautiful play monsters double-up as handy fixtures that are great for building your next den – or in my case, tidying up the cables and other junk on his desk 🙂





For Bibi, Santa came earlier this year, so she’s already got her pressie and she highly recommends the Teenage Engineering‘s speaker. It’s a refresh from a 70’s design by a Swedish sound engineer. It’s been updated to include Spotify connect, Airplay and Bluetooth. It’s awesome, though the sound is incredible and it just sits in the corner of the room and fills the room with sound.

If you’re not convinced yet, you should definitely check it out, it’s super cool!

Jonathon loves music, so he recommends these super cool wireless headphones by Here Plus. If you believe the hype, this could be the beginning of the future of headphones. They look so comfy and hassle-free that you definitely feel tempted to buy a pair!

Our Industrial Designer, Owen wants a Hasselblad X1d camera. It offers touch control for all aspects of the camera’s features and also boasts a 2.4 MP electronic viewfinder for bright, crisp viewing even under difficult lighting conditions. It’s a bit pricey, but that doesn’t mean that we can’t dream about it!

Pascal, apart from making new tutorials with Stefan, he loves cycling and going to the gym! So, he’d like one of these very smart Hidrate Spark bottles that glow when at you when you need to drink more water. Maybe we all need to get one!

Isabel chose something very convenient, handy for everyone and with a reasonable price. The MU worldwide travel charger is a must have gadget. You can easily switch from the UK to EU and USA. All in one, easy to carry with you in your endeavours.

Laura loves reading, so it couldn’t be something not related to her favourite habit. She’d love to have a Lumio book lamp, so she could ready everywhere, even in the dark. Who wouldn’t love to get this well-designed portable lamp, which can decorate your little corner?

Dimitra would love to get the Nest thermostat, so she can keep her place warm and cosy. The best part of this is that you can control it from your phone and it also recognises if you’re not there, so it drops the temperature! Her other choice is a recommendation for music lovers. Especially, if you love listening to your favourite playlist, while taking a shower. Kohler has the best speaker and it’s also removable and of course waterproof.

Our 12th  gift idea is our Pi Cap, the Raspberry Pi add-on, which is compatible with Raspberry Pi 1,2,3 and Pi Zero. You can empower your Raspberry Pi projects and connect them to the physical world. Check what people say about it and get it for Christmas.

We hope that this list will help you with your Christmas gifts. Don’t forget to share with us your wishlist on Twitter or Instagram!
