It’s almost Christmas time and one of the hardest people in your life to buy for will be the tech-head, because they’re almost certainly staying up with every new product release and buying it for themselves, but here are a bunch of products that you can’t go wrong with.
PLAYSTATION PULSE EXPLORE EARBUDS
PlayStation has finally released an official set of earbuds for PS5 in the PlayStation Pulse Explore earbuds. They come with their own little funky case and also connect to your phone via Bluetooth.
The CRKD Nitro Deck is a great way to enhance any Nitendo Siwtch experience. It provides hall effect analogue sticks so that you don’t get stick drift and just make the Nintendo Switch a lot more comfortable to hold in handheld mode.
The Withings Body Smart Scales would make a great gift for anyone that is wanting to get healthy in the new year and not only track weight, but more advanced metrics like muscle mass, health rate and a bunch of other features that are great to know.
If the person is someone that games a lot on their phone or uses PlayStation Remote Play, the Backbone controller is a fantastic device to get them, that will absolutely enhance their mobile gaming experience.
The Xbox Series S is a great way to get into next-gen console gaming without breaking the bank. It provides all the same features as the Xbox Series X such as a super fast SSD as well as all of the exclusive next-gen games. There’s a starter pack on sale at the moment that includes three months of Xbox Game Pass Ultimate which is everything you need for a solid holiday of gaming.
The Sonos Era 100 is one of my favourite smart speakers on the market. It has stereo speakers and a fantastic sounding sound full of bass. You can Bluetooth to it, connect it to your home Wi-FI or even send music over Apple AirPlay 2.
The Ember Cup and Mug are temperature controlled smart cups. It lets you set the temperature to keep your hot beverage warm. It can be controlled by your smart phone, and also has a battery to keep to warm off charge for an hour or two.
If the person you’re buying for loves a good pair of noise cancelling earbuds, the Sony WF-1000XM5 wireless earbuds just dropped and they’re absolutely fantastic. They’re great for listening to music, taking world calls and just drowning out the outside world.
You can never have too much external storage, whether it be for storing files, backing up photos or just using them to store your games. The fantastic Samsung T9 SSDs have just dropped, with super fast speeds and the same great reliability.
Give a gift that keeps on giving, because honestly the Cricut Joy Xtra has what feels like endless uses. The perfect machine for someone who’s just starting out on their Cricut journey, giving the flexibility for smaller to large scale and more complicated projects.
If the person you’re buying for is an Apple user, this Logitech combo is fantastic. The Logitech MX Master 3S is a fantastic all-purpose mouse and the Logitech MX Mechanical is a fantastic keyboard. Both are big improvements on the official Apple ones.
If the person is an RGB fan my favourite new light kit is the Nanoleaf 4D which cleverly merges a light strip with a camera that replicates what you’re watching on-screen onto the lightstrip behind behind either your monitor or TV.
If the person in your life considers themselves to be a bit of a pro gamer, the DualSense Edge is PlayStation’s new pro controller for PS5. It has customisable buttons and triggers. If you just want to get them a new controller, the Midnight Black DualSense is absolutely stunning.
This is the power bank to top all power banks. It can charge your iPhone, laptop or portable gaming device with ease with its 140w of output and a handy screen that tells you exactly how long is left or how long to charge back up the power bank.
This has been another one of my favourite tech devices of the year. It’s a hybrid smart watch which means that it looks more like a traditional smart watch with its 30 battery life, but also has many of the smart watch features we’ve come to know and love like sleep and activity tracking and heart rate notifications.
You can’t really go wrong with anything LEGO, but two of my favourite sets that have released recently are the LEGO Donkey Kong set but also the LEGO Pac-Man set is absolutely stunning if you’re looking to spend a little bit more money.
