Top Five Best Tech Gifts for the Teachers in Your Life 


The unsung heroes of our society, teachers go above and beyond to ensure each student gets the best education possible, often with limited resources. 

Why not show appreciation this holiday season by giving the teacher in your life a thoughtful IT gift? 

Here are our top five picks to get you shopping! 

Portable Hard Drive 

Since teachers work with different files daily, having quick and reliable access to their work is essential. A portable hard drive is the perfect Christmas gift for any teacher. 

Storing and transferring large amounts of data securely becomes incredibly easy and efficient with a portable hard drive. Furthermore, this efficient storage system is entirely wireless; all of a teacher’s documents can be stored on a disk small enough to fit in the palm of their hand. 

Providing teachers with the assurance that their important files are secure and easily accessible, a portable hard drive makes a great gift to show them you appreciate their hard work and dedication. 

We think the Western Digital Elements Portable Hard Drive is the perfect Christmas gift for any technology-loving teacher. With its USB 3.0 and USB 2.0 compatibility, this external hard drive will help provide faster data transfers than ever before – meaning teachers can create and download content quickly and at high speeds. 

The Western Digital Elements Portable Hard Drive also improves PC performance by creating virtual memory space – allowing laptops or desktops to run more smoothly. With up to 4 TB storage capacity, teachers can easily store thousands of songs, movies, countless photos, and much more – all within one device! 

This unique hard drive is formatted NTFS for Windows 10, Windows 8.1, and Windows 7 systems. However, reformatting may be required for other operating systems. Compatibility may vary depending on the user’s hardware configuration and operating system. 

Adjustable Cell Phone or Tablet Stand 

If you want to give a teacher the perfect Christmas present, look no further than an adjustable cell phone or tablet stand. Teachers make use of technology tools daily. An adjustable stand allows them hands-free access to their devices whenever needed. 

Cell phone and tablet stands can be adjusted in various ways, allowing teachers to sit back and enjoy their favorite streaming services or even complete work assignments with little hassle.  

Available in bespoke designs that allow for multiple tablet and phone sockets, cell phone or tablet stands can be purchased to fit the exact size and type of device, giving teachers absolute control over how their classroom works. Adjustable cell phone or tablet stands are designed to give teachers an organized, stylish way to keep devices ready in their classrooms. 

Adjustable cell phone and tablet stands are affordable and portable, making them the ideal solution for busy teachers who are always on the move. 

Available with customizable accessories, many adjustable stands can alter socket heights from 1″ to 11″. No more struggling with tangled wires and cluttered surfaces, today’s adjustable cell phone or tablet stands allow teachers to follow their daily schedule without missing a beat.
