We wouldn’t be where we are today without the internet, little glass screens, and a lot of computer chips. That so much creation is locked inside tiny devices the size of a Fruit Roll-Up is a magical, mind-bending realization. But sometimes, people need a break. These gifts are for the person you know who would appreciate the chance to step away from the computer and hold something else in their hand. From tabletop time sinks to outdoor escape tools, we’ve got your gift-giving season covered.
Check out the rest of our gift guides, such as Things Teens Actually Want, Gifts for Music Lovers and Audiophiles, and Smart Gifts to Upgrade Your Beauty Routine.
