If you’re guilty of leaving your silly season shopping to the last minute, thankfully there’s a wide range of Christmas tech gifts that are sure to be a hit. 

Technology advancements have given us a wide variety of devices that are capable of some truly magical things if we know how to use them properly. Thanks to larger screens and more powerful processors, one such example is that your phone can now also double as a mobile workstation, calendar and even a pocket organiser, letting you tackle tasks when you’re out and about.

While nobody is expecting you to fork out for a sack of new smartphones for Christmas tech gifts this year, the good news is that there are quite a few other options to consider if you aren’t quite sure on what type of present would be actually used and appreciated by someone you love. 

Our Last Minute Christmas Tech Gifts Guide 

For most people, December is arguably the busiest month of the year. School’s out, work deadlines kick in, and large family gatherings are on the cards for a number of us. As such, it’s easy to forget about what presents to purchase to be unwrapped on Christmas Day, particularly something that will be both cherished and utilised instead of gathering dust. Thankfully, Christmas tech gifts are a way to do so, especially if you’re stuck for ideas. 

Apple Watch Series 7 – Marketed as the most durable Apple Watch ever built, the latest release has undergone a full redesign to present close to a 20% increase on the screen size of its predecessor, while still allowing all the favourite features that we’ve come to know, love and expect from the tech giant. 

GoPro Hero 10 – The GoPro brand forever changed the way consumers view adventure photography, and it’s tenth generation sticks to the device’s tried and true formula while still delivering a world class user experience. Its frame rates are higher, its interface is smoother, its transfers are faster and its photos and videos look a touch more polished than earlier models. 

Ray Ban Stories – Fans of Iron Man will be aware of Tony Stark’s “smart glasses”, but might be surprised to learn that similar technology is already on the market. Ray Ban Stories are a new generation of smart glasses, integrating with your phone to take photos, access audio, and even scroll through social media while on the move. 

AirPods – In addition to playing audio without wires and chords, Apple AirPods contain a microphone that also filters noise, along with built-in accelerometers and optical sensors capable of detecting taps. While the concept was an immediate hit with consumers, there’s also a wide range of similar alternatives to consider as budget friendly Christmas tech gifts.

Amazon Echo Smart Speaker – Amazon Alexa, also known simply as Alexa, is a virtual assistant technology developed by Amazon, first used in the Amazon Echo smart speaker. The latest release of the Echo allows users to do anything from streaming music, issue search queries for real time answers sourced from Google, and even order a pizza. 

FitBit Inspire 2 – A Fitbit is a piece of technology that people can wear around their wrist to measure their daily steps, heart rate, and more. Popular with fitness junkies, the technology is also widely embraced by those who just want to keep a better eye on their overall health, with the latest model offering improvements on battery life and insights measured. 

Apple AirTag – One of the newer additions to products available as Christmas tech gifts include the latest release from Apple, the AirTag. Designed to act as a tracking device or even a key finder, it’s a great budget friendly option if there’s a member of your household who’s notorious for losing their personal possessions. 

Technology certainly is a wonderful thing, there’s simply no doubt about it. However, in order for it to stay relevant, beneficial and glitch free, the dark side of it is the constant updates that the humble consumer is required to keep up with. Thankfully, if you’re having issues with a device and are out of options, the good news is that help is only a phone call away.
