Christmas is coming up fast and you need to get these gifts sorted out. If you need to get these last minute gifts in. That’s where I come in. I’ll give you some gifts that I recommend to give to your friends or family. Most of the gifts will be based around tech, mostly Apple products. So without further ado lets get right into it.
iPad Air 2
Faster and thinner than its predecessor, the iPad Air, undoubtedly this is the best iPad that Apple has made. Equipped with Touch ID, a great 8 megapixel camera with awesome image processing. This also has a 9.7 inch display with a resolution of 2048×1536. It has an A8X which is 2.5 times faster graphic performance than the A7 chip and has 40% faster CPU and 2 gigabytes of RAM unlike its predecessor that had 1 gigabyte of RAM.
It’s not cheap, starting at A$619 dollars, this is great for people ranging from people who aren’t familiar familiar with tablets to people who love gaming.
Apple TV is Apple’s media device that plugs into your TV. You can rent and buy movies and TV shows through your Apple ID, watch YouTube, view photos and videos from your iPhone or iPad, stream your screen to the TV, play some games through the Apple TV and so much more.
Apple TV costs A$109.
Sonos PLAY:1 or PLAY:3
Sonos has some of the best wireless speakers that you could put in your house. You control Sonos via your phone, tablet, computer. You can choose to play songs that you have downloaded in your music app or you can choose a music service like Spotify, Pandora, MOG and more like I have. The PLAY:1 is a small speaker that can fit into small spaces, in my house, it’s in the kitchen. Surprisingly, the PLAY:1 is quite loud. The PLAY:3 is more appropriate for your bedroom, lounge, or study.
You can buy a PLAY:1 for A$299 and the PLAY:3 for A$499. This includes a free 12 month membership by Deezer, which is a great music service.
iTunes Gift Card
Nothing beats a good old iTunes gift card. When redeemed, you can purchase apps, music, movies, TV shows (depending, naturally, on how much credit you have and how much the item is). You can give (or receive) a $5, $10, $20, $50 or $100 gift card. You can also electronically send any amount to an email regested with iTunes.
Microsoft Xbox One
Xbox One is a gaming console and is a great place for people to play a wide variety of games. I have one and it is awesome for playing games and the controller is awesome, it vibrates in different sections of the controller if you are in a game and something happens. You can also play and talk with your friends with Xbox Live but you have to pay another fee for that.
Buy Xbox One from here or other retailers as they might have better discounts.
That is all for my Christmas picks this year. I wish you a very happy Christmas. Thanks for reading. Mekul
