For the gamer in your life, check out the I-Cade 8-Bitty.

Forget the boring add-on smartphone controllers, the I-Cade 8-Bitty is a classic, retro-styled game controller that works with your I-pad, I-phone, and Androids, and costs about $10.

Looking for a more sentimental gift? Try the Lomography smartphone film scanner.

First, you place your phone into the grip mount, and spool your negatives through the scanner. A built-in light illuminates each frame, allowing you to take a picture with your smart phone. Prices start at $59.

Another high-tech gift idea are Wi-Fi hotspot cuff links.

These hi-tech accessories deliver a pop of cutting-edge connectivity to any mobile office. Simply install the included software onto a laptop, connect via USB and create a hotspot for all wireless devices.

It's perfect for meetings or avoiding hotel Wi-Fi fees. They start at $150.
