It barely seems like yesterday that we were unwrapping our presents and raising a toast to the New Year, but the festive season is upon us again. Wind and rain howl through the darkened streets, the stores are full to overflowing with holiday shoppers, and Christmas music blares out from every speaker. With everywhere around enticing us to get into the holiday spirit, the spectre of Christmas shopping can no longer be avoided; it’s time to hit the town and get wrapping.
If you’re short on inspiration, then here are five gifts that every tech-obsessed adult and teen will love…
#1: A Segway
Segways are the hottest commodity on the Christmas market, and Britain’s streets are slowly filling with unsteady riders looking to get fit and have some fun. Available from a myriad of stores, these ingenious hoverboards come in all shapes and sizes, with a plethora of options to choose from. Featuring everything from built-in speakers that connect to your mobile to GPS, they’re the coolest and most exciting way to get from A to B this festive season.
#2: The Polaroid Zip
For the amateur photographer, you might also want to add a Polaroid Zip to your shopping list. This super simple photo printer connects to iPhones and Android devices in seconds, delivering stunningly captured prints in an instant.
#3: The Tile Generation II
For those buying on a budget, the Tile Generation II is also a nifty little gift to consider. This clever piece of equipment can be attached to keys so that the lucky recipient never risks losing them again. All that they need to do is pair it with their smartphone so that they can find them in an instant. They can even turn this talent on its head if they misplace their mobile, helping them to locate it in seconds.
#4: The Olloclip 4-in-1 for iPhone 6
Another great gift idea for the budding David Bailey is the Olloclip 4-in-1. This clever iPhone 6 attachment provides a range of tools for the amateur snapper, including fisheye, wide-angle, and two macro lenses. Small enough to stow away in their bag or pocket when it’s not in use, they can carry it with them anywhere, so that they never miss that perfect picture opportunity again.
#5: GoPro Hero +
For adrenaline junkies keen to record their exploits, the GoPro Hero + is another fantastic festive choice. This action camera captures a whopping 60 frames a second, offering the opportunity to document every adventure in stunning HD quality. They can even take it underwater thanks to its fabulous waterproofing features.
Give your loved ones a wonderful Christmas this year with these five fantastic gifts.
