Just a few stocking stuffer/last-minute gift ideas from MacSources.
With Christmas being a few short days away, we thought we would recap some of our favorite gadgets from 2013. Some we have reviewed, some we have not, but all of these items can be found easily either through local retailers, Amazon or through Apple Retail Stores. Any of these items would make wonderful stocking stuffers or last-minute gifts for the tech-geek in your life.
Grid-it by Cocoon is a customizable gadget, adapter and cord organizer. It fits inside most laptop bags and is very convenient to use. We did not do a review of this product this year, but I have one in my laptop bag. It helps eliminate clutter and I use it every day. It is highly recommended if you carry several chargers/cables with you. Grid-it comes in several different sizes and shapes to suite your specific needs.

CHARGECARD BY NOMAD
ChargeCard is the world’s thinnest, most portable USB cable. The size of a credit card, ChargeCard allows users to carry a USB cable for charging devices with them everywhere. We were able to take a closer look at the ChargeCard and highly recommend it. ChargeCard for iPhone 4/4S and Micro USB/Android is currently available on Amazon.

IPAD AIR SMART COVER
No iPad is complete without a Smart Cover by Apple. Since the release of the iPad Air, the Smart Cover received a face lift and gained some new colors, too. The Apple Smart Cover can be purchased through most Apple Authorized Retailers and, of course, Apple itself.
