3: Skullcandy Grind Bluetooth Wireless Headphones – We know that our kids work better when they are listening to some tunes (at least that is what my kids tell me). These headphones are comfortable and cool-looking.

5: WD 1 TB Orange My Passport External Hard Drive – Orange is the new black they say. You don’t need to pick orange, but this external hard drive will be very helpful to that student in your family.

6: ASUS ZenBook 13 Ultra-Slim Laptop – I did some research and found this laptop which would be a great choice for that school kid of yours. Make sure to check this one out.

7: Moto G6  – 32 GB – Unlocked – I know what you are thinking– “Why would I get my kid a phone?”


Because you want to be able to get ahold of them when you want to. Plus, with kids’ schedules these days, it is great for keeping track of them.

8: RAVPower Power Bank – This is a must have with all the tech gadgets that our kids have. Pick one of these babies up and charge that new phone faster than your standard charger.

9: Unicorn Beetle Pro Full-Body Protection – We know kids aren’t nice to their phones or tablets. What better way to protect them than with armor?

10: Logitech Bluetooth Multi-Device Keyboard – This is really cool. I always hated the small keyboard on the screens of mobile devices. Now the kids have the option of using a larger keyboard– which I think most of us would prefer.

[amazon_link asins=’B00MUTWLW4′ template=’ProductCarousel’ store=’davcomtip-20′ marketplace=’US’ link_id=’36566abd-9aae-11e8-80ab-25d798f74498′]
