With the surge in online shopping going on this year due to the coronavirus epidemic, people have been flooding the internet looking for gifts to buy for those hard-to-shop-for folks in their lives. Nowadays most of us have that tech savvy friend/family member who likes all things in their lives to be as technologically advanced as possible. They are often hard to shop for because they already have many modern marvels taking up space in their homes. Below are some good ideas on what to get your technology lover this year.
Virtual Reality Headset
With the VR craze now coming to a simmer after boiling for a couple years, VR technology has come a long way since its first inception. It has had a lot of time to evolve and improve which has resulted in new equipment that is not only less buggy, but also more affordable. Many tech wizards were waiting to get their own VR sets for this very reason. Now may be the perfect time to help them out and make their virtual dreams come true! Once you know who you are buying for and how much you wish to spend, the next step is to narrow down your options by weighing the pros and cons of each different VR set before buying. A decent, cheap VR set for a younger family member is the PlayStation VR Marvel’s Iron Man Bundle (assuming they already have a PlayStation) which has gone down in price to as low as $349.99. That’s a pretty good deal considering the fact that some VR sets, like the Valve Index Kit, can cost over $2,000. Models like that are best reserved for only the advanced, more serious tech gamers that you are willing to spend a pretty penny on.
A New Cell Phone
Cell phones are often things people buy on their own, but they tend to put it on the back burner while dealing with their busy lives. Wouldn’t it be a fun surprise to find out that all those questions you had been asking about which model they want were just so you could sneak out and buy it for them? And there are so many cool cell phone options to check out! Whether it’s your college student sibling longing for the newest model, or that hard working parent who badly needs an upgrade from their old phone that’s on its last legs – someone on your list is sure to be due for an upgrade. You could even include a nice cell phone cover as a fun stocking stuffer! Phones bring people together on a daily basis, so the holidays are a perfect time to share the love and get that special someone the phone they have been dying to get.
Outdoor activity saw a huge spike this year with the pandemic making more and more people turn to social distance activities such as hiking, camping, and other outdoor fun in the sun. This trend is expected to continue well into next year as people will be eager to get outside after being cooped up all winter. Why not get them a clever outdoor gadget they can use for their nature adventures, or replace some of their older gear with a fresh new device? From solar banks to charge their phones with, to portable bluetooth speakers for that picnic they are planning, outdoor technology continues to expand its market. Playing outside has never been more fun!
Whether you are shopping for a tech pro who’s been at it for years, or a young savvy guru who is new to the technology game, they are sure to be happy for an upgrade this holiday. The best tech gifts come from the heart, and with a little planning while shopping around you can get just what the techno wizard ordered! Don’t forget to grab a little something for yourself as well. You’ve earned it!
