Techy and Unique Gift Ideas
Gifting someone a funny gift or a heart-warming present never gets old. Oftentimes, it can be quite a challenge to find a unique gift idea that is worth pursuing. So STORY SPARK is here to help! We'll keep marching on and have assembled our annual holiday gift guide. You may see a theme of distance and nostalgia in this collection of gift ideas - a combination that seems to ring true for many of us this year.
#1. Humango Toys Mars Dust Globe
The Mars Dust globe is a cosmic twist on a snow globe, encasing a detailed Mars with an adult and child astronaut. When shaken, the sphere becomes filled with a rusty red haze. This globe will be a fun addition to any desk! It's sold out on the creator's website, but we did find it on Amazon at the time of writing this.

Although doctors recommend putting away digital devices 1-2 hours before bed, that’s an unrealistic goal for many people. Night Swannies by Swanwick offer stylish protection against blue light to ensure a good night's sleep. This is a perfect gift for every techie and gamer that can never seem to put their device down!
#10. Levitating Speaker
The Infinity Orb is a technologically innovative way to listen to music that defies gravity! This Bluetooth speaker levitates above its base, which flashes colors and can also be used without the base. The sphere even emits sound with a 3D surround effect!
