Christmas Gifts for Tech Fans
If you have someone in your life who can’t get enough of the latest and best in personal tech, then finding the perfect Christmas present usually involves looking for some new gadgetry they don’t already have. Whether it’s for productivity, gaming, or to add some new tech flair to their home, we have some gift ideas for gadget fans that your loved one is sure to be delighted by on Christmas morning.
Read on for the best gift ideas for tech fans for Christmas 2022:
Smart Home Technology
Adding more tech power to your home can make life a lot more convenient and is definitely something fans of personal tech will enjoy. There are lots of things that can help do this, from home hubs like Amazon Alexa through to smart lights like the Hue range. One great idea for someone just getting started in adding smart tech to their home is this smart Wi-Fi light switch, which can work either with or without a smart home hub like Alexa, and will work with any kind of light. Being able to control their lighting from their phone, even when they’re not at home, can be a useful and appealing idea for your tech obsessed loved one.
VR gaming is getting bigger and better all the time, and now it’s possible to enjoy VR games on standalone units rather than needing to connect the headset to a powerful PC or console, thanks to the Oculus Quest 2. There are now lots of highly acclaimed games for VR hardware, so if your loved one has been considering getting into VR but waiting for more games before taking the plunge, this Christmas could be the perfect time. The Quest 2 could be the ideal gift, or, for someone who already plays VR games, you can consider accessories that can enhance their experience.
A Smarter e-reader
For those who like to use their tech for work or study, a great gift could be a smart e-reader like the reMarkable or the Onyx Boox Note. What makes these different from normal e-reader devices like Kindles is that you can take notes directly onto the things you are reading using a special stylus. They still use the same e-paper screen technology for an easy-to-read effect and exceptional battery life.
For students or people who need to take a lot of notes at work, they’re a real productivity tool, but they’re also just fun to use for reading books or comics. If your loved one already likes to read eBooks, then this could be a great gift to help them upgrade their reading experience. Alternatively, if they already have a device like this, there are some great cases, stands, and upgraded stylus pens available that could make the ideal gift.
These are some ideas for you to think about that should hopefully inspire you to find the ideal Christmas present for someone special to you this year.
