When it comes to Christmas, there’s always some piece of sought after tech that you’ll want to get your hands on before the big day arrives. This year, here are some of the most popular tech gifts to consider buying your loved ones:
Top 5 tech gifts for Christmas 2019
1. Bose Noise Cancelling Headphones
If the person you’re buying loves nothing more than to cancel out the world and immerse themselves fully in an audiobook or their favourite music then noise-cancelling earphones make for a great gift. The Bose 700 headphones are the latest product released by the brand but you can get your hands on an earlier design for a little less without compromising on quality.
2. Apple Watch
For those who love all things Apple, a watch that pairs with their all-important smartphone is the perfect gift. These devices allow them to track their steps, control their music and messages from their wrist and of course check the time with ease. However, the Series 5 watch comes in at £429 – so consider buying an earlier model or a cheaper alternative such as a Fitbit or Garmin device.
3. Nintendo Switch Lite
Nintendo’s portable console has been a popular choice for a couple of years now and their Lite model offers a more compact device that’s ideal if you’re always on the move. It does cost less than a standard Switch at around £199 but consider looking out for a bundle offer, which should feature some games included in the price.
4. Amazon Kindle
Amazon offers avid readers the opportunity to take their whole book library with them wherever they go and if your loved one loves a good story, this gift is a top choice. The latest model is the Amazon Kindle Oasis which has an RRP of £229.99, however, you can pick up a £70 Kindle that offers all the same functions – essentially, a platform to read books. Or, consider picking up a second-hand device with models available on the likes of £40 to £50 on selling sites such as eBay and Facebook Marketplace.
5. iPhone 11 Pro
The latest iPhone took the world by storm on its release with not one, not two but three quality cameras. With an RRP of £1049, this is a huge expense at Christmas. Instead, consider looking into older iPhone models or an alternative brand that still offers a great camera without the eye-watering cost. If an iPhone 11 Pro is a must buy, then consider buying second hand to save some cash – believe it or not, there will be people getting rid of the phone already.
