Adding to the stress of a hectic holiday season: Trying to find the right gifts for loved ones. No one wants to gift something the recipient doesn’t like, of course, but it can be tough to know what to buy and how much to spend—especially when it comes to tech. Buying for kids can be especially tough, since they tend to know more about this world than we do, amirite?
Well, if you’re in search for some awesome gadget gift ideas, read on for five cool high-tech recommendations for everyone on your gift list.
Samsung Galaxy Buds Live
Why we love them: You don’t need to spend $300 on great-sounding, comfortable and fashionable earbuds. For under $100, these bean-shaped earbuds work wirelessly with iPhone and iPad, Android devices and Windows PCs, delivering crisp audio and the ability to block out ambient sounds by enabling Active Noise Cancellation (ANC). Available in multiple colours, these earbuds work great for music, podcasts, audiobooks, and taking calls. $99, bestbuy.ca
HyperX Cloud Alpha S
Why we love them: Speaking of audio, give the gamer on your list the gift of powerful, private audio with this pair of wired, over-the-ear headphones perfect for use with a Windows PC, PlayStation 5 or Xbox Series S/X. Featuring virtual 7.1 surround sound and bass adjustment sliders, the soft earcup cushions means you can game for hours on end, plus the microphone can be detached and put away when you’re done trash-talking for a while. $100, amazon.ca
Something for moms and dads: This pocket-sized device for relaxation and muscle treatment can be used anytime, anywher, thanks to its QX35 motor with QuietForce tech, up to 150 minutes of battery life and three speed settings. With its patented triangle design for more of an ergonomic grip, it’s a breeze to tackle knots, cramps and tension with Therabody’s smallest and quietest gun for use at home or on the go. $249, chapters.indigo.ca
Google Nest Doorbell
See who’s at your front door—even when you’re not at home. This new pick is available in a wireless (battery-powered) or wired version (using your existing wiring) and lets you see and talk with visitors from anywhere via the companion app (and save footage to view later, if desired). A practical present, especially in the era of online shopping, but a fun one, too. $239, bestbuy.ca
Fire TV Cube
Significantly bump up your TV’s IQ by connecting Amazon’s most powerful streaming media player to date, thanks to its octa-core 2.0 GHz processor and fast Wi-Fi 6e support. Sign into your favourite free and paid services and then use your voice with the Alexa remote (included) to ask for something to watch, control your smart home, make free phone calls, and more. $190, amazon.ca
