It is that time of the year again, December is almost here and it means we will all be rushing out to get our Christmas presents in time for the big day. Every year we search and search for the perfect gifts for our loved ones hoping it was just what they wished for. This year I have decided to make your lives a little easier, take a look at my 2018 technology gift guide.
Amazon Echo Spot
One of the hottest technology gifts of 2018 is definitely the Amazon Echo Spot. This Echo Spot is the latest release from Amazon in their Alexa series and if you know someone who loves using Siri then the Echo spot is for them. This smart video voice speaker will answer your questions, play your favourite tunes and help you to organise your everyday life. This form of the Amazon Echo is also touchscreen to make usability slightly easier. One major benefit to this gift is that the whole family could use it, however it will set you back £119.99.
Kano Harry Potter Coding Kit
If you’re searching for the perfect technology gift for your child I think the Kano Harry Potter Coding Kit is the perfect choice. This well-designed kit combines education and coding and will allow you kids to spend hours working through puzzles and games. If you have any Harry Potter fans in your house this gift will also go down a treat as the coding kit also features a separate wand that tracks your creation of spells. This gift is truly innovative but doesn’t come cheap at £99.
Do you have a health enthusiast in your family? The Fitbit Versa could be the gift you’re searching for. This version of the Fitbit is slightly more stylish than its predecessors and it will help you to track your health. Christmas is a time for indulging but if you want to get back on track in the New Year the Versa will help you do it. It can track your steps, heart rate and your calorie intake. This I think is one of the best health tracking devices on the market at the moment as it has a longer battery life then many smart watches but it does cost a cool £99.
I feel that the Tile Mate is the perfect ‘dad gift’. We all know that one person who is constantly losing their keys, with the Tile Mate this will never happen again. This nifty gift is a small tracker that you attach to your key ring that will provide you with a location at all times. Tile mate can connect to your smartphone or tablet via Bluetooth and is very simple to set up. This gift is also an excellent buy as it only costs £20 which could also make it the perfect stocking filler.
