Christmas will soon be here – have you started to think about what to buy yet? If you want to treat a loved one to some supercool tech presents, this guide will inspire you. There are so many different ideas here, all suitable for different budgets and tastes. Take a look and see what you find!
Drones aren’t just for kids. You can get special drones for both kids and adults, depending on experience levels and what you want to do with your drone. Some drones can fly ridiculously high in the sky and film a little for you. Some aren’t as powerful. You’ll need to consider the experience level of the person you’re buying for, as you don’t want the drone to be too difficult for them to use. If you’re buying for a young child, ease of use is crucial. If you’re buying for an adult, making sure it has the right features is important. Here’s what to look for in a drone.
Portable speakers are one of the best tech gifts you can give to a music lover. Being able to play music wherever you go is such a joy. There are so many speakers that are small, but pack a huge punch when it comes to sound quality. Make sure you read reviews on different specs before you decide which one is right. Some larger speakers aren’t necessarily high quality, so compare features and reviews first. If you consider where they’re likely to take the speaker and how important quality is to them, you’re bound to pick a great one.
Tablets and e-readers are definitely all the rage these days, and you can even get two in one most of the time. Some of them can even be mounted to the wall, if you want to use it to watch YouTube and Netflix. HD tablets are obviously better quality for this kind of thing. For those who won’t really use the other features a tablet can offer, you can buy simple e-readers that just allow you to read books, and look just like the page of a book as you read. However, not being able to see the covers in color can be a downside for some people. iPads and kindles are usually the most popular choice, but there are a ton of others that could be suitable.
A Smart Watch
A smartwatch works much the same way that a smartphone does, except you wear this on your wrist. You can see when you have a message, an email, or a missed call. Of course, they also work pretty well as an on-trend watch! They are definitely the watches of the future. Just make sure you don’t go swimming in them just yet!
A Laser Keyboard
If you want to find a portable keyboard, you can’t get more portable than the laser keyboard. The laser keyboard is essentially a hologram of a keyboard, and can be used with plenty of different phones and tablets. It might feel a little weird to use at first, but they can be very convenient and work just as well as a regular keyboard! If you would rather have more of a physical keyboard, you can find other options that are just as portable. However, they aren’t quite as cool as using a laser hologram to type up your essays and notes.
An Electric Hoverboard
We really are in the future nowadays. Electric hoverboards wern’t just dreamed up by the makers of Back To The Future! You can now own a real life electric hoverboard, from places like The Electric Rider. Don’t get me wrong…it doesn’t do all of the work for you. You do need practice, and you won’t be able to float on water like Marty Mcfly. However, these boards can be a lot of fun and are definitely a gadget of the future!
An App Controlled Padlock
If you like to know your bike is safe, whether you’re at work or off exploring, an app controlled padlock can be just the thing you need. Absolutely no need to memorize codes or anything like that. Simply lock and unlock from your phone. No need to worry whether your bike, or whatever you’ve used the lock on is safe. Easy!
A Lost Things Finder
Are you the kind of person that always loses things? There are so many tech gadgets out there these days that are perfect for you. If you always lose your keys, for example, there are a number of different gadgets you can try. There are gadgets that will beep, or show you exactly where something is on your smartphone if you download the app. You can find keys, wallets, and so many more lost things. No need to stress about anything lost ever again!
A Polaroid Camera
Polaroid cameras aren’t exactly taking a step back into the past. After all, they look really sleek and cool, and still produce high quality pictures you’ll be happy to show off to your friends. If you’re buying for someone who is a fan of eras gone by and vintage items, this could be a great gift for them!
Another one for the music lover, or even the gym lover; wireless earphones. No need to snatch out the wire when you’re going for a run or at the gym. These earphones simply connect with your smartphone and play your music in exactly the same way. The sound quality can be just as good, and you’ll save yourself so much stress.
A GoPro is an amazing high quality camera that’s perfect for those who love to travel and go exploring. You can record your adventures in other countries, when skateboarding, or even surfing. These cameras take incredible pictures and videos, and you’ll see your adventures in a whole new light.
