Christmas is just around the corner and it may have very well snuck up on you.
Worry not because life gets in the way for far too many of us and this is a season to enjoy. There are still plenty of gift options available for your loved ones. If you’ve got a gadget lover, or geek, in your life, look no further. There’s no need to stress, because we’ve got the answers.
If you’ve got the money to burn, going ahead and buying a new piece of tech should be your first option.The iPad Pro and the Microsoft Surface are the upper-tier options available on the market today and both offer great reasons to buy. If your gadget lover is a graphic designer, this might make their 2017. It’s going to cost you though! In terms of gaming, the PS4 Pro is out now and offers an amazing experience for those with 4K TV’s. If they are into their Xbox over Playstation, you might want to delay the big purchase until next year, as Microsoft’s Project Scorpio sees its release.
Cheaper options? Bluetooth headphones are an amazing product and offer a lot to their owners by opening up a world of wireless audio. If they already have a tablet, you might want to ensure that it stays protected and equipped with great accessories so it can extend its use. Be sure to do your research with reviews (redirected here) and make your choice.
In terms of something more traditional a good Christmas sweater should be pretty tacky and makes for a great option for a last minute gift. You can really go wild in this area and purchase based on the recipient’s interests. If they love Star Wars, there are Star Wars sweaters. If they love Drake, there are Drake jumpers. Best of all, there are some tech-based options. You can buy Sega, Apple and Playstation themed sweaters There is no end to the amount of options on offer here, so take your pick and really nail it.
Of course, an entirely last-minute option is to purchase a gift card. This means that the recipient can buy a gift of their choice from a chosen store. This is perhaps a better option for someone who loves gadgets as they will be the expert here! However, it’s a great option if you’re totally stuck for ideas, but it does seem like a cop-out sometimes. An alternative to the gift card would be to give cash. The same negatives apply to a cash gift, but at the very least, that can be spent in any store, or even saved for that expensive gadget!
Look, there are plenty of gift ideas out there, but all will involve a small injection of both your time and money. If you know nothing about tech, do your research and ask the questions.
Nobody likes a badly thought out gift. Take as much time as you possibly can and make the right decision and you’ll have a happy Christmas morning.
