In our day and age, finding a perfect tech gift can be either extremely hard or super easy, as there are hundreds of new gadgets coming out every year. New phones, new smartwatches, constant innovations, fun gizmos nobody really needs – the choice is yours!
Take a look at these 9 must-have holiday gadgets for tech lovers! (Prices may be seasonal)
1. Amazon Echo Plus – $150
Just say out loud, “Alexa, add Amazon Echo Plus to my shopping list.” Oh, you don’t have one? Too bad. It’s a nifty little gadget. Why do you need one? First of all, it’ll keep you company, but it’ll also play music, make calls, set alarms, and turn your home into a Bat-cave.
2. AirSelfie2 Flying Camera – $200
Do you have a friend who takes a lot of selfies? This flying camera would be an excellent present for them. Its tiny HD camera will take astonishing aerial shots with ease!
3. Away Luggage – $225.00
Big, spacious compartments, safe locks, wheels that don’t wobble, and of course, a removable battery charger! With this baby, you won’t get stuck with your phone dying in the middle of nowhere.
4. Nintendo Switch Lite – $200
With the release of Pokemon Sword and Shield, it’s time to roll over to the Dark Side and get a Nintendo Switch. This time it’s a “Lite” version for only $200. You’ll never want to play games on other consoles.
5. Apple iPad – $330
Everyone needs to have an iPad. Watch a movie, listen to music, create some fantastic art, but whatever you do, don’t take selfies with it. You’ll look like an idiot.
6. Oculus Quest – $400
The only thing any gamer wants these days, aside from an “even faster PC” is a VR set. The Oculus Quest is a perfect tech gizmo to get. It is quite pricy, however, so maybe next year?
7. Apple Watch Series 5 – $400
How did people live without Apple watches? It’s so convenient and filled with features that once you try it on once, you won’t be able to get it off!
8. Nikon D3500 DSLR Camera – $500-600
One of the best mid-range DSLR cameras on the market. There’s nothing more to say here. It’s got all the necessary, as well as unnecessary features, but all you need to do is say “smile!” and pull the trigger.
9. Traeger Pro 575 Wi-Fi Pellet Grill – $700
Without a shadow of a doubt, you’ve probably never seen a grill like this one. It uses Bluetooth and has an app where you can set the temperature and timers to get that juiciest steak. I’ll be honest, the price is not right, but if you can afford it – do it for us plebs!
