12 Tech Gifts on Our Holiday Wishlist

December 18, 2018 Cara Schwartzkopf

In the spirit of the holidays, all of us at SparkCognition like to wrap up the year by reflecting on our successes and looking forward to things we want to achieve in the coming year. We also like to think about things we just… want. That’s why this year we decided to ask some of our own to share what’s on their wish list, and as you might imagine, it was full of gadgets, trips, and of course, the newest video game.

Whether shopping for the techie in your life or just looking for personal inspiration, check out some of the items our employees on the nice list are asking for:


“New Year, New You” starter kit

We love finding modern solutions to age-old problems, including the battle of the office worker versus a sedentary desk lifestyle. Enter data-collecting, wearable tech.

It’s our blog, okay?

Bill Gates, probably

Whether it’s the perfect espresso, the latest smartwatch, or a ride down Splash Mountain, it’s important not to get hung up on the material things. Stuart Gillen, our VP, Customer Success and Partnerships, shared his wish for what truly matters this holiday season: Quality time with family and friends (because he already got an Xbox One on Black Friday).
