Nov 29 2011 - 3:18am

Surely you have a friend or family member (or two) that isn't as tech savvy as you are. Not to fear — these five gifts are great options for Luddites who run from technology, and will hopefully usher them into the future. Or at least the present.

Pocket Projector For iPhone 4 ($229)

Know someone who wants a projector but wouldn't know the first thing about operating one? Grab this Pocket Projector [1], which attaches to their iPhone 4 and away you go. Blast movies, images, and videos up to 50 inches for the whole family to enjoy.

Kindle Fire ($200)

The Kindle Fire [2] is the perfect starter "tablet" for those who have never ventured onto a touch screen before. The Kindle Fire is perfect for reading books and watching videos, but it also eases your giftee into playing games and surfing the web, all in one tiny package.

iPhone 4S ($200)

The iPhone 4S [3] is just the thing your clam-shell-toting mom needs to break into the smartphone arena since it's easily the most intuitive UI out there, and it comes with a fantastic 8MP camera so she can leave her old, beat-up digital at home.

Compact Photo Cube Printer ($149)

Now that everyone's got an iPhone, make things even easier by gifting the Compact Photo Cube Printer [4], which allows your loved ones to plug in their iPhone to the dock and print pics in under a minute. No pesky wires, cords, PCs, or cables required.

Blurb Photo Books (Various)

If you really can't think of a gadget that would be appropriate for the Luddite in your family, give the gift of photography with a Blurb photobook [5]. Put your photo skills on display by filling a book with images from your digital or your Instagram feed.
