It can be nearly impossible to come up with the perfect present for that techie in your life. With technology being so prevalent nowadays, gadgets have become the most popular category for people to shop for – everyone wants something electronic!
But what would be the perfect techie present? We are here to help get your buying process started with a list of the top high tech gadgets this holiday season. Everyone has an opinion on different brands, so we left out specific products, but if you keep in mind the following categories in your holiday shopping you’ll be sure to get a smile when you give your gift.
Even though modern smartphones can take pictures of sufficient quality for posting online, it’s good to have a dedicated camera to capture the shots you really want to keep – and dare we say it – print. For everyday usage, look for digital cameras with at least 10 megapixels. For more professional pictures, the prices definitely go up, and you will most likely want to look into getting a digital SLR instead of a point and shoot camera. To get the absolutely best print quality however, you still can’t beat an old school 35mm camera.
Portable Media Players
Media players have come a long way in the past few years. Although some people use their smart phones to listen to music and watch movies, many people prefer to have their media in a smaller, easier to carry media player. Media players now even have Wi-Fi access, making it easier to access the Internet on the go. Some offer photo and video capabilities as well.
Tablets are the “in” tech toy of the year. Easier to transport than a laptop, but with all the same functionality, these devices offer the ultimate answer for staying connected to the world while also allowing for media sharing (pictures, books, movies, etc.). There is a major brand battle going on in this space, with multiple legitimate contenders vying for bragging rights. Do your research for the features your techie will want most, but getting a tablet gift is a virtual lock for being a favorite gift this holiday season.
Smart phones are the cornerstone technology advancement of our generation. They offer safety and convenience with GPS options and allow them to stay connected with friends and family through social media, the web, and of course texts and calls – if you actually use a phone for its voice functionality anymore.
It’s good practice to update your laptop at least every four years to stay on top of the latest technology. If you know someone lugging around a brick of a laptop, or who constantly complains that their programs take too long to load or have run out of storage space, a laptop would be a welcome gift. New laptops have better web cams, better Wi-Fi, Windows 8, and more.
