Gift Idea: iRoller

Who Wants It: Neil McRae (Aerohive Field Sales)

Why They Want It: Let’s be honest, it doesn’t matter if you have an iPhone a MacBook or iPad: At some point the screen becomes dirty. This is such a simple, easy-to-use, and effective techie tool.

Gift Idea: Electric toothbrush with audio/memory card

Why They Want It: Do you find it boring to brush your teeth and watch the time tick away? That’s all in the past: Pick your favorite song from the toothbrush’s playlist and start brushing your teeth with your favorite song! You will want to keep going on till the song ends.

Gift Idea: Personal Brewery

Who Wants It: Rhys (Aerohive Regional Sales Director)

Why They Want It: Some would say this requires no explanation. But quite simply, for an initial time investment of one hour, and daily pressure checks for seven days, you will have your own cold, fresh beer off the tap for half the price of store-bought beer! Who doesn’t want that for Christmas? I just hope Santa can fit it in his sleigh!

Gift Idea: The Juicero Press

Who Wants It: Douglas (Aerohive Systems Engineer)

Why They Want It: Techie, yet healthy. This is the world’s first counter-top cold press juicer, with no clean up! It’s kind of like K-cups, but for juicing. While it exerts up to four tons of force, it’s also equipped with both Wi-Fi and a QR code reader!
