It might seem like it’s too early to start thinking about the holidays but they will be here before you know it and when it comes to getting the hottest tech gifts for the people on your list the earlier you start the better chances you have to get those in-demand tech items. The hottest consoles, games, and other tech toys always sell out quickly and leave people scrambling to get their hands on the best technology gifts for the holidays. So if you want to get the jump on your holiday shopping for the tech lover on your holiday gift list here are the tech gifts that everyone will want for the holidays this year:
Once again new iPhone models are going to be at the top of every tech lover’s wish list. Apple will be unveiling some new iPhone models for 2018 next month which is the perfect time to start your holiday shopping. And if you’re not able to get your hands on the very newest models you will be able to pick up last year’s models like the iPhone 8, the iPhone 8 Plus and the cutting-edge iPhone X for discounted prices when the new models roll out. Get one that can install an app to do a mailing address lookup!
Console systems are always high demand tech gifts. But this year Sony is upping their game by releasing the PlayStation Pro, which is something that serious gamers are going to have their holiday wish lists, and the PlayStation Slim which is great for college students to keep in their dorm rooms or for teens to have in their bedrooms. If you have a gamer in the family you might want to get your hands on one of these console systems now because they will be hard to find once the holiday shopping season starts.
The latest FitBits and fitness trackers are also going to be popular tech gifts again this year. And since they can fit nicely into stockings a new FitBit makes a great stocking stuffer for the athlete on your list. A word of caution though – make sure that the person you’re buying the gift for actually wants a fitness tracker before you buy them one. Otherwise, it might look like you are telling them that they need to lose weight and no one will take that very kindly, especially during the holidays when people tend to gain a few pounds thanks to all those delicious holiday treats.
The Instapot was the star of last year’s holiday tech gift giving and it’s going to be very popular again this year. The Instapot is a hybrid of a pressure cooker and a slow cooker so it makes complicated and time-consuming cooking easy and fast. It’s easy to see why everyone wants one. The Instapot can make a roast and other meats that need to be slow cooked quickly and easily. It’s also great for making steamed rice and vegetables. And you can even use it for desserts and drinks. Plan on getting your home chef an Instapot this year if you didn’t get them one last year.
