10 Things to Keep in Mind When Buying Tech Gifts
1. Unexpected takers
Just cause it’s a tech gadget doesn’t mean it won’t be useful for non-tech savvy folk.
Even when dealing with grandparents sometimes all they need is that first step and they might be using their new wifi slow cooker or echo show all the time.
Sometimes you’ll even hear your mom or dad say “That’s all the features I need… etc.”
2. Surprise them
Although the person you intend to give the gift to might be quite updated on most things in the tech space, it’s often new inventions on Kickstarter for instance that will really prove to be useful for them.
An item that they weren’t yet aware of or always wanted to buy but never got around to will be an extremely thoughtful present.
3. Simple is the way to go
Often times the simplest of items can prove to be the most useful.
Anything from a new cover for your dad’s phone or something simple like a bedside lamp can be a hit with the recipient rather than something super complicated like a gaming router that might require a tedious registration & setup process.
4. Do your research
In this day & age gadgets failing is nothing to be surprised about but it can be quite embarrassing if a new item fails to function right after a week.
So make sure you read reviews, how-to guides & do your research before you give something complicated.
5. Gaps in the market
Usually when inventing stuff people look for gaps in the market; similarly, you can look at things that your brother, sister, mom, dad or friend don’t have before you make your decision.
Sometimes it can be right under your nose. For instance, your friend could be training for a marathon and a fitness watch might be super useful.
People always underestimate how easy it is to find the missing links.
6. Might not be the best for romantic occasions
Typically, you need to avoid giving tech items for Valentine’s Day or any romantic occasion unless your partner is a tech freak.
Especially for romantic occasions, you would want something that’s everlasting instead of it being replaced every 2 years, like an iPhone for instance.
7. Look for something that brings you together
This applies especially with respect to gaming tech. You can always buy controllers in pairs or give your friend a game so that you too can have a great time together.
Look for something that is not exclusive to just 1 person in the household like a portable charger for instance that you & your siblings can share.
8. Everybody likes fewer wires
Wireless devices (in our experience) always make people happy. Too often we find desks and TV cabinets full of wires and your friend or family will always be appreciative if you aid in eliminating a few.
Bluetooth speakers or even wireless mice would great options.
9. Gift to enable
Wearables and tech gadgets that enable people can be well received. Your friend or your family member can really thank you for it if you help them achieve any goals.
A goal setting device that keeps people accountable or a wearable that helps your brother or someone you know take their first steps to running their first marathon could be very thoughtful.
10. Don’t go for something too generic
Irrespective of how tech-savvy a person is or isn't, avoid really generic gifts like USBs or boring items like an alarm clock. Most people get gifted these at work all too frequently.

We Feature Exciting Tech, Ideal for Gifting!
1. 4K TVs
The price of these types of televisions has fallen dramatically in recent years, partly thanks to the demand created by the growth of streaming platforms such as Amazon and Netflix.
The flat-screen of a TV is made up of millions of little pixels, the more of these pixels, the sharper and higher definition picture, meaning you get more detail.
The images you see are more life-like, and that flat screen on the wall becomes more of a window on the world than a TV.
4K TVs work well in the domestic environment, as they have provided highly detailed pictures, without having screen sizes too huge for most situations.
Some manufacturers have introduced 8K TVs with even more pixels on the screen, however, to get the best of this type of television you need a screen size of at least 65 inches.
2. Gaming and VR
Virtual reality gaming adds a three-dimensional artificial environment to the gameplay.
In most cases, it means wearing a VR headset, which creates a 360-degree view of the world created inside a computer.
This immersion in virtual reality allows the player to appear to be in this imaginary world, and interact with the game characters.
The simplest VR devices project a 3-D image that is manipulated using a mouse, keyboard or a touch screen.
For a more sophisticated experience, VR headsets with their wrap-around displays can be augmented by sensory components that give tactile feedback.
VR headsets are now much lighter than those first on the market and offer a better experience due to improving lag, and the less chance of nausea.
3. Action Cameras
The development of the newest cameras known as action cams, with companies like GoPro producing small HD cameras that can be mounted virtually anywhere to capture close-up action.
With a suitable mount, an action camera can be strapped to a helmet, handlebar of scuba gear to take pictures in the 4K definition.
Their lightweight design means they can be carried or attached just about anywhere without any problem.
With the right accessories, they can even be used underwater!
4. Smart Home Products
Smart hubs such as Amazon’s Alexa can control appliances, heating, lighting, and entertainment systems with simple voice commands, making your home a bit like the deck of a Star Trek space ship.
5. Tech for the Kitchen
The tech in the kitchen can be much more hands-on than sci-fi Wi-Fi, with gadgets to make every task you are likely to perform made just a little bit easier.
From automatic jar openers to all-in-one avocado peelers there is a gadget for just about every culinary job imaginable.
It’s also interesting that innovations for the kitchen are often the starting point, and the tech can translate to other uses around the home.
How about the strip of powerful super magnets you can apply to the roof of your fridge cabinet to hang bottles of beer rather than take up shelf space.
How cool is that, and how adaptable to other uses around the home.
