Disclosure: As a member of the #VZWBuzz lifestyle blogger panel, I sometimes receive products for review. All connection and data plans are covered by me. No compensation was received or review product acquired at this time. 

Here are my top tech gift picks from Verizon. All of these items are available at impressively low holiday prices. 

For the Kid DYING for an iPhone

iPhone 4s

The iPhone 4s (what I have and purchased for myself over a year ago, and with the new operating system is barely distinguishable from an iPhone 5 or higher) is right now only 99 cents at Verizon with a 2 year contract. You can get a plan as low as $19 a month at Verizon too. And your lovey will still be able to display the ubiquitous Apple logo. You’ll be the coolest parent EVER.

For the Tablet Wanter and E-Reader-er

Verizon Ellipsis 7

Right now the Verizon Ellipsis 7 is $100 off and available for just $149.99 with a two-year data plan. It has a gorgeous 7–inch HD display, ample battery life and powerful processor that lets you easily switch from e-books to games to email to watching movies via Netflix. It is comparable to an Amazon Kindle Fire but a better price and provides access to Verizon’s 4G network for lightning fast surfing.

For the Loveably Accident Prone

Lifeproof Cases for Phones and Tablets 

I love, and use, these sleek, chic cases by the makers of Otterbox. They provide all the damage control without the bulk. Most importantly, they can make your phones and tablets waterproof, dustproof and drop-safe while still looking fly. I am getting these for everyone, man or woman, young and old.

For the Reluctant Smartphone User or First-Time Phone User

Prepaid LG Optimus Phones from Verizon

Smartphone naysayers like Grandma or Grandpa, or first time phone recipients such as tweens and teens are perfect for the prepaid LG Optimus line from Verizon.  Users can have all the fun of a smartphone (photos! e-mail! a touchscreen!) with flexible plans and no annual contract. You can look up items on the web on the full-color 3.2–inch display screen and text using the touchscreen virtual keyboard. Photos and video captured using the phones’ megapixel digital cameras look just as bright and clear as fancier Android models.

For the Outlook and Hotmail Addict

Nokia Lumia 928 Windows Phone

The new Windows phone Nokia Lumia 928 is extremely intuitive, and accesses your Bill Gates-loving, Outlook and Hotmail using, MSN homepage holding’s my favorite aspects of Microsoft Office and Outlook. They will have immediate  use of their contacts, calendar and docs on SkyDrive. Don’t be afraid to go Windows! More and more of your favorite apps are now available for Windows Phones, such as Facebook, Twitter, Pandora, Netflix, Hulu Plus and Amazon Kindle apps. And the high def camera and beautiful big screen are a dream to use.
