It’s that time of year. The gift-giving holidays are less than two weeks away and hopefully you’ve been checking people off your shopping list since Black Friday (or maybe even before). We want to help make your last-minute shopping a little easier by putting together a list of tech gifts that will light up anyone’s holiday season.
First up, tech gifts that will help make everyday life just a little easier:
Do we even need to explain this one? Whether you’re looking to get the new iPhone 11 Pro in gold, space gray, silver or midnight green, you’ll get to experience its super retina XDR display, 4k video recording, Face ID and a true depth 12MP camera. And to top it off, the iPhone 11 Pro is splash, water and dust resistant.
We’re not here to convince you whether Apple or Samsung is better. We’re here to tell you getting a smart watch is the thing you’ve been missing from your everyday life.
Long gone are the days of untangling your headphone wires after taking them out of your pocket. Since there are so many different types of Bluetooth headphones that fit certain lifestyles, we’ll give you a list of the top Bluetooth headphones you can buy for the holidays.
Turn up the heat and keep your morning coffee perfectly hot with this temperature control mug. It has a long-lasting battery that can be controlled with any smartphone (an iPhone 11 Pro perhaps?).
Give them a gift that is impossible to turn down, the gift of a good night’s sleep. Its sunset and sunrise simulations prepare your body to sleep and rise on time, and its RelaxBreathe feature calms you into peaceful slumber.
6. Bose Frames
Think these are just some fancy sunglasses? Look again. The new Bose Frames Audio Sunglasses produce perfect-sounding music that only you can hear.
Second, tech gifts that make coming back home after work that much more enjoyable:
A peace of mind is a gift that’s hard to re-gift. The Ring Video Doorbell allows you to see, hear and speak to people at your door from anywhere with your phone, tablet and PC.
Again, we’re not here to convince you any certain brand is better than another. We are here to tell you that having a smart home device will make anyone’s life easier at home. You can play music, make calls, set alarms, control your lighting, and much more from your smart home device.
Because who doesn’t love coming home to a clean house that they didn’t have to clean?
10. Google Nest Wifi
Let’s set the scene: You come home after an exhausting day at work and kick your feet back as you are about to watch your favorite show on Netflix. Your show starts to load, and it happens… Your Wi-Fi stops working. Now imagine this: You come home after an exhausting day at work, kick your feet back and watch your favorite show with no interruptions. Which sounds better to you?
As Business Insider so accurately states, “Smart light bulbs bring your home into the 21st century…”
The Furbo Dog Camera lets you see, talk, and toss treats to your dog from anywhere. We seriously cannot think of a better gift for any dog lover.
Last, but definitely not least, tech gifts for when you finally have some spare time:
You work hard all day, then work even harder at the gym. These products help relieve muscle soreness and stiffness, improves range of motion, promotes circulation and accelerates warm up and recovery.
14. Oculus Quest
Take VR to the next level with the Oculus Quest. This is the first all-in-one gaming system built for virtual reality that you can play anywhere.
Going on a family vacation? Hosting an an event and your TV is too small? A portable projector will help you solve all those problems, and more.
Because wine not?
17. Robot Bartender
Get repeatedly high-quality service without the long lines at a bar with this robot bartender for the home. Load it up with liquor and mixes and impress your friends with this robotic cocktail maker.
We’ll refer to Business Insider once more as to why you should get a media streaming stick, “A media streaming device can transform your so-called dumb TV into a smart one that plays shows and movies from Netflix, Hulu, HBO Now, Prime Video and other streaming services.”
If you're having trouble picking one of these gifts (since they're all so great), take a moment to think about the person you're shopping for and what you think would best fit into their lifestyle. Finding the perfect present can be challenging, but we hope this list helped make it a little easier.
