Christmas is just around the corner, so here's some ideas for the best tech Christmas gifts to get your friends, family or even yourself this year
Santa is sneaking up rather quickly and you need to start getting your Christmas pressies sorted out now if you haven’t already! Couriers are already battling delays due to significant increases in demand over the lockdown periods across the country, and Christmas will only extend those delays for them. Alongside delivery delays, there’s also the supply challenges as an astounding amount of products that are out of stock have ETAs well into 2022 – so if there’s a decent product you can grab now, do not hesitate.
No need to start stressing though, we’ve put together a few ideas for you so that you can get ahead of the game and outshine everyone else in your family when it comes to gift giving.
Drones and Cameras
If you thought drones were one of those ‘come in and go out’ kind of tech products, then think again. Drones are here to stay, and their applications are becoming more and more diverse, from agriculture to deliveries to filmmaking. So, it’s time for you (or someone you know) to get your creative juices flowing and capture some mad memories with a brand-new drone.
The Zero-X Edge drone is great for those looking to up their skills of drone usage. With a control range of 100 metres, the ability to do 360-degree flips and three different speed modes, you will be looking like a pro before you know it.
Earbuds and Headphones
Christmas is all about the movies and the music and you cannot convince me otherwise. Whether you’re into the more classic films and traditional carols, or you live off those ‘so bad they’re good’ movies and that one Mariah Carey song, you’re going to need a good audio device to do it right. If you’re a headphones kind of person, Beats has a new range of Studio 3 Wireless Headphones which tick the box in terms of quality and style. With colours varying from a raging red to sleek looking Midnight Black, you can reminisce with It’s A Wonderful Life in classic style.
Not keen on whole head-band thing? That’s alright, there’s plenty of earbuds going around at the moment. The Microsoft Surface Earbuds are perfect companions whether you’re a Mac-lover or Windows-loyal. The smooth and simple design means no-fuss and no drawing any unnecessary attention, so you can go about your movie-watching in peace.
Screens and Projectors
Speaking of watching Christmas movies, you’re going to want to go hard or go home with the screen-type in order to get the best out of your viewing experience. Samsung’s 2021 range of Smart TVs bring vibrancy and quality to your home, whilst being super slim and mighty fine looking. You can go from a nice 43” screen to a large 85” one, where the only question is, how big is your living room?
If you really want to do something special, projectors are quite a popular viewing option these days. Why leave the house when you can bring the cinematic experience to you? With 4K resolution, massive screen size up to 120” and sound that you feel in your chest, it’s the ultimate movie-watching experience; because let’s be honest, you can’t watch Die Hard with anything less than that.
Despite the country largely opening up, online work and learning is still here to stay, so why not upgrade your home office/gaming space to suit your style this Christmas? You might like to give your desk a little pop of colour with Microsoft’s Modern Bluetooth Mobile Mouse (Mint), or even Razer’s Ornata V2 Gaming Keyboard with RGB lighting.
If you haven’t already, you really should get yourself a nice chair to accompany your long hours at the desk (whether for work or for play), and if gamers know anything, they know chairs. You certainly don’t need to be a gamer to invest in a gaming chair; what you do need is a desire for absolute comfort, practicality and to look as cool as you think you are. The Omen by HP Citadel Gaming Chair is a brilliant balance of comfort and style, so you can tackle the battlegrounds of the office and the Royale itself.
There’s certainly plenty of unique tech options around, so why not go for something a little outside the box? All we recommend, is that you don’t wait for the adrenalin to kick in on Christmas Eve to do your shopping. I know it may feel like it’s too early, but trust us, it’s not!
