    It also has a specially coated non-slip surface that'll keep their device from sliding around while it's juicing up. Plus, it delivers up to 10% faster charging than other wireless chargers! Make sure you also tuck an AC adapter into their stocking, since this charger doesn't come with one.

    3. These bestselling Tile Mates will help them keep track of all their belongings, no matter how hectic their schedule gets. These handy tracking nuggets can be attached to their luggage, phone, work bag, passport holder, or wallet. Plus, they're compatible with all Alexa devices!

    Amazon / Via amazon.ca

    Using the phone app, they can make the Tile ring and find their lost item. And if they've lost their phone, double clicking on the Tile mate makes it ring (even if it's on silent!). There's also a "community find" feature which allows them to enlist the help of other Tile users in finding their lost stuff. These trackers are also available in sticker form, or in a slim credit card shape that's perfect for their wallet.

    6. This award-winning watch is specially designed for the visually impaired β€” plus it looks sexy as heck, too! Taking inspiration from Braille, the face has raised elements to detect time, plus two magnetically attached ball bearings that move to denote minutes and hours.

    Amazon / Via amazon.com

    If they're really active, make sure to let the gift recipient know that sometimes the ball bearing may slip out of place β€” but don't panic! They're held securely in the tracks, and a simple shake of the wrist will have them lodged magnetically once again.

    Not only is it lightweight, but it has two ports, which means so they can carry fewer chargers in their work bag.

Yes, it all counts as cardio.

    Amazon / Via amazon.ca

    Reviewers love how comfortable they are, especially when working out.

Sure, they can be attached to the console for handheld mode, but they'll also be able to share with friends (*cough* you *cough*) for some two-player action. Let's hope they're into sharing!

    Amazon / Via amazon.ca

    Each controller can also be used independently! Just make sure they use the wrist strap to prevent rage-quit-induced accidents.
