Top Holiday Gifts for the Tech Lover in Your Life

59

Americans spent in the region of $412 billion on tech in 2019, indicating the extent to which devices like smartphones, smart watches and virtual assistant AI tech are becoming an increasingly important part of everyday life. From teens to seniors, Americans are relying on devices to stay connected, receive prompt medical attention, and find new ways of staying entertained. With much of the word under some form of lockdown in 2020, gadgets are an ideal present this holiday season, when many will be seeking to make the most of home life. These are just a few ideas that may inspire you while you are shopping in stores or online for the holidays.

High Tech TVs 

Few gifts can bring a smile to everyone’s face at once as a high-tech TV can. With services like YouTube and Netflix having 163.75 million and 46.55 million active users, respectively, digital TVs are a fantastic way to blend the best of both worlds: traditional TV and streamed services. TVs predicted to be big hits this Christmas include the LG OLED CX series (in 48-. 55-, 65-, and 77-inch versions), which aims to entice gamers with support for Nvidia G-Sync and compatibility with 4K/120HZ gameplay. For amazing picture quality, check out the Samsung Q950TS QLED TV and the Sony A8H OLED. The latter also offers beautiful sound, making it ideal for movie and series lovers.

VR Headsets 

Gaming is ultra popular among teens – especially teen boys, reports a recent study by Pew Research. Most kids already have some sort of gaming system or online account for gaming, but if you really want to surprise younger teens with something different, then a top VR set will delight them with real-life immersion in a host of fantastical worlds. The latter are used by kids starting in their early teens so if you’re looking to gift a teenager in your life with something that has a real “wow” factor, look into sets like the DESTEK V5 VR Headset (which costs in the region of $35 on Amazon) or (for something more upmarket but much higher in quality) the Oculus Quest, which will set you back around $535. If you are looking for tech gifts that will get your teen outdoors, consider a drone, USB charging backpack for camping, or a wireless headphone and beanie for a musical experience in nature.

Top Earbuds 

People of all ages rely on Bluetooth tech these days for everything from listening to music to receiving and making calls. Earbuds enable you to enjoy vital connections with others and to listen to music without using your hands. If you are keen on gifting someone with quality earbuds with features like noise-cancelling tech, a long battery life, and top listening quality, a few buds to watch out for include the Sony WF-1000XM3, the Sennheiser Momentum True Wireless 2, and of course, the Apple AirPods Pro – all of which drown out extraneous noise and enable you to be wrapped in crisp and clear sound.

Smart Watches

Smart watches have come a long way since they first hit the market in 1998. Today, they are as fashionable as they are useful, offering features such as rotating bezels, seamless working with popular smartphones, water-resistance, long battery lives, and attractive displays. Just a few predicted to be big sellers include the Apple Watch 6, the Samsung Galaxy Watch 3, and the Fitbit Versa Lite. The latter has a battery duration of up to four days, making it perfect for those who enjoy taking long camping trips.

Tech devices are always a great gift to give during the holidays, but this year with more people spending loads of time at home, they can be true life-savers. From televisions to VR headsets, earbuds to smart watches, they are making life easier and more entertaining. Many devices also offer an indirect gift that is more necessary now than ever: that of connection with the friends and family we love.
