So, whether it’s your teen who loves gaming, a friend who can never live without music, or even a grandparent that just wants to keep up with the trends—we got you covered!
Acer 317 Chromebook
A Chromebook is a great laptop for families who want a simple, yet powerful laptop to use at home or on the go. An intuitive interface is designed to work well for both children and adults. Acer 317 Chromebook is definitely designed for multiple users.
Despite being lightweight, this device still packs enough processing power to stream music and shop online without any issues when you’re out and about. Using it is as easy as it gets. With built-in Google apps like Gmail, YouTube, and Maps, you don’t need to install anything else.
Apple Watch SE
If you’re looking for the perfect gift for your fitness-crazy teen, it can be tricky. With so many options, it can be easy to become overwhelmed. Thankfully, there’s one perfect gift: an Apple watch!
The new generation of Apple Watch SE continues to deliver the core Apple Watch experience, all at a more affordable price. It includes health and safety features like Activity tracking, high and low heart rate notifications, Emergency SOS and all-new Crash Detection. Powered by watchOS 9, Apple Watch SE delivers more than ever before. Available in midnight, starlight or silver—or even pink!—this is sure to be their favourite Christmas present this year!
Lenovo Duet 5
Now, this little gem is a great option for anyone who wants to share their favourite tablet games with their grandkids. Its touchscreen makes it a great way to play mobile games on a large screen. The effortless navigation also makes it easy to use.
This ultra-thin model—with its 13.3’ lightweight display—also makes it easy to carry this laptop anywhere! Whether your grandparent wants to receive and view photos of their grandchildren or watch the news, this Lenovo laptop ensures a bright and clear image wherever they may be.
iPhone 14 or iPhone 14 Plus
Christmas is the perfect time to reward your hardworking teen. And we have the perfect gift idea: iPhone 14 Plus!
Any teenager will be impressed with the features of this phone because it is the latest and greatest from Apple. The 6.7-inch screen makes it easy for them to hold onto; the high-quality camera allows them to take photos everywhere, and the 5G capabilities allow them to stay connected wherever they go-even if they are travelling abroad. If your teen loves taking pictures everywhere, this phone comes in handy when it’s time to create holiday memories at home or on vacation.
You and your family can now take your holiday road trips to the next level.
This Christmas, here’s a new way for you and Alexa to go on adventures together. With Echo Auto, you don’t have to put in a bunch of wires or remove your phone to take advantage of Alexa. As soon as you turn on Bluetooth and connect it to your smartphone’s audio system, just say “Alexa” and you’re ready to go!
Alexa Voice Remote Pro
You won’t have to search for the remote this holiday season with the Alexa Voice Remote Pro. This new premium remote lets you stream more and spend less time looking for it. Using Alexa’s Remote Finder, it’s easy to locate lost remotes, so there’s no need to look under your couch cushions. Just say, “Alexa, find my remote” and you’ll be able to locate it easily.
With the power of voice control at your fingertips—just ask Alexa how long a movie will last or what channel the game is playing on. You can customize buttons on the remote to create shortcuts to your favourite apps, and shows, as well as anything that Alexa can do (like play music).
iPad 10th Gen
This is the perfect gift for the on-the-go student who doesn’t want to put their work down. The all-new iPad is colourfully reimagined to be more capable, intuitive and fun.
The iPad delivers a powerful way to get things done, create, and stay connected with its all-screen design, Liquid Retina display, and four gorgeous colours (Silver, Space Grey, Gold or Rose Gold). The Apple Pencil and third-party styli from Logitech Crayon 2 and Adonit Jot 3 combine rich pixel density with an immersive experience to make it easy to draw in Notes or edit pictures in Photos.
Don’t forget to personalize the gift by engraving a fun emoji or their name on the back!
If you are shopping for someone who loves reading, you can never go wrong with this gift. With the lightest and smallest Kindle, it offers premium features at an affordable price. It includes a 6-inch high-resolution display at 300 ppi, USB-C charging, a six-week battery life, and 16GB of storage. They can take their library wherever they go!
Ubisoft’s Mario + Rabbid’s Sparks of Hope
If you have a gamer teen in your life and are looking for a fun game that they can play with your family over the holidays, look no further than Ubisoft’s Mario + Rabbids: Kingdom Battle. This turn-based tactical RPG is available exclusively on Nintendo Switch™ and features some of our favourite Nintendo characters as they team up with Rabbid versions of themselves to stop Cursa, an evil force that is threatening their universe.
Apple Gift Card
If you know someone who loves Apple products, but they can never seem to make up their mind, then consider giving the gift of choice with an Apple Gift Card. It’s a great way to ensure that your loved ones get exactly what they want and need this holiday season.
Each gift card includes a collectible sticker featuring a colourful design of the Apple logo, so not only is it easy to give as a present—but it also makes for an interesting keepsake when you receive one!
We hope you have a very techy Christmas while enjoying all the gadgets and gizmos!
