The holidays are getting closer, and picking the right gift for someone is only becoming a more stressful activity. To make things a little easier for you, we’ve found some gadgets that might make the perfect gift for that person on your list who has a particular interest. This blog will go over some of these interests and the gifts that might make their holiday.
For the Shutterbug
These days, we have the technology that enables a complete novice to pick up a camera and take a passable picture. There’s plenty of gift options out there, whether the recipient prefers using a mobile device to take their shots, or is a camera-lugging hobbyist. For the smartphone ‘togger, there’s accessories like a lens adapter, a selfie light or remote, while a camera-user might prefer receiving a basic point-and-shoot like the Sony Cyber-shot DSC-RX100 V or Nikon D5500, or might prefer some accessory that provides quite a bit of use, like a tripod. Some photography fans might even like a portable backup and editing tool, like the GNARBOX.
For the IoT Devotee
The consumer market has become flooded with connected devices and other Internet of Things doodads. As a result, there are potential gifts for users of every level of experience with the IoT. For beginners, there are kits like the Philips Hue Starter Kit to introduce the idea of the IoT and what it can do. Digital assistants make a great gift for someone who wants to automate the world they live in. Some gifts to consider getting someone like this include the Amazon Echo, Echo Spot, and Echo Show, or the Google Home, Home Max and Home Mini.
For the Media Junkie
Entertainment has always been a driving force behind technological advancement, which means that there is always a new gadget to give someone who loves gaming, reading, or watching. The groundbreaking Nintendo Switch and Microsoft’s latest console, the Xbox One X make great gift options for a gamer, while someone who always has their nose in a book might appreciate the library they can carry in an e-reader like the Amazon Kindle Oasis. For those who you might plan to spend a little more on, there are always televisions like the Samsung 4K HD and the Sony A1E series OLED 4K. While these items might cost a little more, the smiles these gifts will bring will be worth the cost.
