Christmas is just around the corner. So for those who aren’t done with their Christmas shopping yet, being in a panic mode is quite understandable because there are only a few days left to finish everything off.
If you’ve been thinking of giving tech gifts this year, you’re in luck as we are dedicating this article to share our top seven last-minute tech gift suggestions. Aside from smartphones (iPhone 7, Google Pixel, Samsung Galaxy S7), gaming consoles (Sony PS 4 Pro, Microsoft Xbox One or Nintendo NES Classic Edition), and laptops (MacBook, Surface Pro), here are a few other gift ideas worth considering.
Amazon Echo (check price)
It’s the best starting point to turn one’s home from ordinary to smart. Amazon Echo is a smart speaker. It uses Alexa — Amazon’s voice assistant — to control smart home devices, play music, read audiobooks, relay news, answer your questions, provide information about traffic and the weather, set alarms, order take away food, request an Uber ride and many more. Just plug it in, open the Alexa App on your phone, and Alexa is yours to command. There’s a smaller version available too – the Echo Dot. It can do everything Echo does, just not as loud. Which is why it has an audio output – just connect it to a bigger and louder sound system, and it will be just like Echo at a fraction of the price ($39.99).
Anker 40W/8A 5-Port USB Charger PowerPort 5 (check price)
Anyone who has multiple electronic gadgets (so that means practically everybody) will appreciate this multi-charging power port. It charges fast. It’s certified safe and efficient. Best of all, it’s super affordable and oh-so-useful because it will recharge five of your gadgets at the same time.
Bose QuietComfort 35 Wireless Headphones (check price)
Unbeatable noise cancellation capability, superior audio quality, classy design, superb comfort, long battery life and exceptional overall quality. These are the features that make the Bose QC35 Wireless Headphones the perfect gift for those who want to shut themselves from everything else when they’re listening to music (or whatever sound it may be) with their headphones. It costs a lot, but it’s well worth its price.
HP Sprocket Portable Photo Printer (check price)
It’s the best solution for anyone who’s been stuck with so many photos for awhile — all in soft copies because he/she just can’t make time to have the best ones printed out. With this portable photo printer, all it takes is the HP Sprocket App and their smartphone. Just connect and print. Easy as pie.
ION Audio Max LP Turntable (check price)
It’s a turntable with built-in speakers. It comes in classic colors — natural wood and glossy piano black. Anybody who still keeps a collection of RPM records would love to have it. It even comes with a USB port, making it possible to convert vinyl into digital audio files.
Olfactory Alarm Clock ($109.00)
With this innovative alarm clock, there’s no more excuse to ‘wake up on the wrong side of the bed.’ Why? Because it’s designed to wake you up in one of the most pleasant ways possible — through the use of stimulating and relaxing scents from the smell of the seaside, cut grass or peppermint, to the invigorating aroma of chocolate, espresso or warm toast.
TP-Link Wi-Fi Range Extender (check price)
We’re pretty sure it’s rare for a home to have only one Wi-Fi user at a time. Which is why it is also unlikely that one Wi-Fi router will be enough to cover your entire home. With this Wi-Fi Range Extender, you can easily increase Wi-Fi coverage up to 10,000 square feet. Just plug it into your wall outlet, and you’ll instantly have better coverage.
Hope you like the suggestions. Merry Xmas and a Happy 2017.
