Last week I had the fun opportunity to visit the Verizon headquarters in Irving, Texas.  Not only did I get to see some awesome bloggers, I got to see and learn about some of the coolest top tech gifts for this holiday season!

Top Tech gifts from Verizon


Can I just start by saying that I am absolutely blown away by the latest technology?!  The gadgets and gifts pictured above just barely touch some of the amazing features and gadgets that Verizon is rolling out. I sat in awe throughout the hour long presentation, excitedly scribbling a page-full of notes on some of the top tech gifts and groundbreaking features of each of the phones, apps, and toys we saw!


Crayola DigiTools

I think I must be a little off my tech-game because I’d never even heard of Crayola DigiTools.  Have you?  Please, tell me I’m not the only one!

Now, thanks to the Crayola DigiTools Paint Pack, young artists can have instant access to all their favorite Crayola paint colors in a convenient no-muss, no-fuss, kid-friendly digital package. Using spray-paint effects, a paint roller or traditional paintbrush patterns, kids can take their works of art outside the lines of the digital coloring book—adding digital stamps, mixing their own colors and using other cool special effects in their virtual masterpieces.

Kids use Crayola DigiTools with an iPad or tablet making DigiTools perfect for play anytime of day–at home or on the go.  When you purchase Crayola DigiTools your child will be able to unlock new canvases to paint; you never have to worry about in-app purchases.


For your high school and college students, make sure you encourage them to check out the, not holiday gift related, but pretty neat nonetheless, MyHomework and StudyBlue apps. With these student planners, students can upload documents and photos, record homework due, take notes, and more! I really could have used an app like these in high school and college.




If you haven’t jumped on the FitBit bandwagon yet, here’s why you should.  These little fitness bands are amazing! Not only do the FitBit Flex and FitBit Charge track your steps and distance, it also tracks your sleep.  The silent alarm can wake you at the perfect time in sleep cycle to leave you feeling the most rested.  FitBit also allows you to do activity challenges with your friends, because aren’t we the most active when we have the support of others or when we are accountable to someone else.


Now let’s talk about some of the cool smartphones I saw!

Verizon’s smartphones are taking “smart” to a whole new level.

I’m currently an iPhone user, but the more android phones I use and review, the more I realize I’m an android girl.  There is something about the android interface that makes it much easier to use when I’m doing work (blogging) related things on my phone.

The Samsung Note 4 is pretty awesome!

The Note 4 features and enhanced S pen (which allows you to write and draw–not just type–on your phone).  The Samsung Note 4 boasts a bold, 5.7-inch display with a resolution of over 500 pixels per inch. The Quad HD Super AMOLED screen allows for richer colors and deeper shadows.

Because we take our phones with us almost everywhere now, the Samsung Note 4 comes with an adaptive fast charge and ultra power-saving mode. The fast charge allows you to charge your phone up to 50% in just 30 minutes.  In a pinch you can switch your Note 4 to ultra power-saving mode which will allow even just a 10% charge to last you 24 hours!

And, for all you moms and dads out there who are tired of your toddlers making phone calls and random “kdfjoidnslsiogns” texts to your boss, tired of your kids opening all sorts of in app adds, the Samsung Note 4 comes with a built-in kids’ mode!!! Once you turn on kids mode, your child cannot exit it without your password!!! I’m so excited about this feature!


 The Verizon-exclusive Droid Turbo by Motorola

Motorola Droid Turbo, top tech gifts from Verizon

The Verizon-exclusive Droid Turbo by Motorola is the icing on the Top Tech Gifts from Verizon’s cake.  This bad boy is Ah.Maze.Ing! With the Turbo Charger (which comes with the phone) you can get 8 hours of charge in only 15 minutes! The Droid Turbo by Motorola comes equiped with a 2.7 GHz quad-core processor. It allows for efficient, lag-free multitasking, so your smartphone moves from email to app to web and back again.

The camera on this baby is amazing! The rear-facing camera is 21 megapixels (yeah, I’m fairly certain that is more mp than my DSLR). And the 4 K video it records is four times the resolution of a standard HD TV.  You can easily share or “zap” your photos and videos to your friends or to your television!

For those of us who are prone to dropping our phones, the Verizon-exclusive Droid Turbo by Motorola body is built with Metallized Glass Fiber and reinforced with DuPont™ Kevlar® fiber for added durability. Scratch-resistant Corning® Gorilla® Glass 3 guards the 5.2-inch Quad HD display, and a water-repellent nanocoating protects against spills and an unexpected downpour.


It was so amazing to see the phones, toys, and accessories for the whole family.  Make sure you check out more Top Tech Gifts from Verizon at!
