Need a tech gift for a dad or grad and not sure what to buy? Here are a few of my favorite gift ideas. The best phone on the market right now is the HTC One M8. Apple and Samsung have held the “best smartphone” crown for several years, but the One M8 is the current King of the Hill. If you can wait a few weeks for extra awesomeness, LG’s newest flagship phone, the LG G3, looks to be even better than the One M8. If you’re giving a gift to the fashion conscious, you can’t go wrong with Apple’s iPhone 5S, iPad Air or MacBook Air. All of Apple’s gadgets are impressive and they’re all at or near the top of their product class, and they’re all amazing products that anyone would be proud to own. And if the person you’re shopping for already has every gadget they’d need, you can give the gift of customization: digital content cards to their favorite e-marketplaces like Amazon, iTunes or Netflix.
