By this point, plenty of articles have hit the Web showcasing the newest smartwatches, waterproof tablets and must-have smartphones, but what about products for people who already have (or think they have) the very height of design when it comes to mobile style? With that in mind, we've taken a good, long look around to find cutting-edge, affordable objects that serve a specific purpose, but still implement the latest in technology, and (we hope) you won't find on your everyday holiday gift guide for geeks. We've also tried to keep the price down to a reasonably affordable level so you'll have enough room in the budget to splash out on something from the list but still have money left over for other gifts. From hand-crafted silver hard drives to a Bluetooth-enabled keychain for all your locks and passwords, we're sure you'll find something on this list to pique your interest. There is one entry here that will set you back a pretty penny, but we couldn't resist, but don't blame us if you wind up buying it.
