Tech the halls
We live in an age of technology and that’s no different at Christmas. (Let’s face it, Santa’s probably playing Candy Crush on his smart phone as we speak!)
Tech and Christmas shopping
For starters, how we gift has been completely changed by technology. Sure, some of you may prefer schlepping through town, weighed down with bags and bulky coats, but we personally prefer sitting at home in our pants, ordering all those gifts on our phone. Even if we end up buying on the high street, we’ll often research presents online first, making the process more efficient and generally resulting in gifting that is more thought out and less likely to end up as unwanted items that go to landfill. Online wish lists have also helped reduce the amount of unwanted presents each year. And with digital bonanzas like Black Friday and Cyber Monday, savvy shoppers are not only getting the exact gifts they want, they’re doing it at a great price.
Tech based gifts
Tech is also one of the main areas of Christmas gifting in the UK. With over a quarter of Christmas presents needing charging or plugging into the mains, the nation experiences a big surge of power usage at about 11am on the big day (the most popular time for opening presents). We’ve scoured the world of tech to bring you the best gadgets and devices for giving or receiving this year.
Our stunning speakers look as good as they sound. The iconic Lexon Tykho is a radio and Bluetooth speaker in one and comes in a range of shades to bring a pop of colour to their home. The Kreafunk aGo Bluetooth Speaker fits right in your pocket, perfect for music on the go and this Halo Mirror Speaker is a 3 in 1 wonder product that will light them perfectly while they’re doing their make up and play their fave tunes so they can get down while getting ready!
Forget your in-ear headphones. These super stylish Kreafunk bad boys are soft to the touch, fully wireless and available in dusky pink, cool grey or white – nice!
There’s nothing more annoying than running out of phone battery. With this Wireless Pizza Charger, shaped like a delish slice of pizza, that’s a problem of the past, or if they’ve got more of a a sweet tooth, this Biscuit Power Bank is good enough to eat!
