We don’t want to alarm you unless you’re a last-minute shopper, but we are just shy of 6 weeks until Christmas. The sunshine? Gone. Halloween? Barely even noticed it. From now until 2022 our focus is putting the star on the tree and watching Christmas films until the foreseeable.
Things look set to be different again this year. From last year’s Christmas dooms and glooms with all the Covid-19 restrictions in place, to now 2021, the year of shortages with a lack of HGV drivers in the UK and more importantly for you tech whizzes, a scarce in semi-conductors.
I know, we said we didn’t want to alarm you, but it’s probably best you act quickly if you want to buy the best tech gifts this Christmas. Whether you’re giving a present to a tech geek or a person who’s not the most gadget-savvy, there’s something for everyone!
Lucky for you we’ve put a selection together. When it comes to finding the perfect gift for tech lovers, there are plenty of cool new tech gifts that can please them this year and it doesn’t have to break the bank.
Nintendo Switch OLED
It’s the wildly popular Nintendo Switch, but not as you know it. Well, pretty much exactly as you know it, only with a bigger OLED screen. In other words, the most important feature on this portable console just got a whole lot better. Whether you’re sneaking in 30 minutes on your commute or spending the umpteenth hour finessing your craft, this is the Switch you want. £309.99. At amazon.co.uk
Samsung Galaxy Watch 4
The closest thing Android has to an official smartwatch, the Samsung Galaxy Watch 4 is an elegant and sophisticated wearable packed with so many biometric sensors and health-tracking features. The newest in the series can measure body fat, track workouts, monitor your sleep quality and surprisingly, even tell the time! Buy now for £269.
I know, we’ve just gone from Apple to Samsung, but both have the best tech in different products, IMO. An affordable location-tracking device for iPhone owners, these tiny pucks can be attached to your keys, travel bag, or anything of importance (bar a pet) so you’ll always get accurate directions to their whereabouts. They’re ideal for anyone who’s clumsy with their tech gifts and need help in hand! From £29.99. johnlewis.com
GoPro Hero9 Black
It seems like a distant memory when I received the Hero5 black, now we have 9. With awesome new features (That I don’t have) like Hyper Smooth video stabilisation, Time Warp, and 8x Slow-Mo, the GoPro HERO9 Black captures your adventures like a blockbuster movie. In fact, you can now stream videos in real-time to straight Facebook Live. Make memories and record them with this durable and waterproof camera just about anywhere (I like It on my helmet snowboarding or on my wrist scuba diving). From £379.00. At Amazon.
Huawei Matebook X pro
With having multiple laptops available, we chose this one – The Huawei Matebook X pro. Our laptops have proved the unsung heroes of 2021, enabling many of us to work from anywhere we could find a wi-fi connection, a power socket, and a ready supply of coffee. If you know someone whose device is on its last legs, how about a festive upgrade to the fastest and most stylish Windows laptop. The Huawei Matebook X Pro is a real powerhouse: speedy, comfortable to use and ready for any task you throw at it. From £1349.90 at Amazon.
Not so much a gadget, like we’ve themed throughout, but definitely up there in the list of importance. Especially with a laptop and potentially working in a hybrid workplace. We get so caught up in getting the best tech gadgets, but never truly protect/gift them once they arrive. And that is where IT Support and Bandicoot come into the equation.
It might not be the best stocking filler, but it’ll be most appreciated if there was a time your computer came under a cyber-attack, or your data was lost. Before you check our packages (From £6 PCM on each device), you can register for a chance to win £75 worth of Free IT Support.
