Best Gadgets to Give for the Holidays

Christmas season is upon us and most may have already finished with their shopping and completed the gifts to be given. However, if you are one such person who has lagged a bit on buying gifts, let us give you an idea on what to get your loved ones. After all, it’s better to be late instead of not giving at all, right?

Gadgets are always popular during the holidays and lucky for you, are never in short supply. Let’s break down a few technological pieces that are sure to be a hit!

Nintendo NES Classic Edition

This is an instant hit on the nostalgia button! For the price of $60 you’ll be getting 30 classic games like Pac-Man, Legend of Zelda, Donkey Kong, and so many more. A set includes a classic controller and a modern HDMI cable. This piece is great for kids who weren’t able to play such classic games and definitely for older players that wish to indulge in a much welcome nostalgia trip.

GoPro Hero5 Black

The current king of action cameras, this little monster will be the hero you need for your adventures with its voice control, 4k video capture capability, electronic image stabilization technology, and can be used as a camcorder in depths reaching up to 33 feet without any additional housing or casing. Definitely a tough little gadget to best fit the toughest of adventure junkies—certainly a most welcome gift. Given the specs, toughness, and capability of this technological wonder, the price of $399 is pretty fair.

Google Pixel XL

Released October this year, Google has thrown its hat in the ring of Smartphone giants. Sporting a 5.5 inch screen, AMOLED capacitive touchscreen, Corning Gorilla Glass 4 for added screen toughness, rear camera of 12.3 MP and a front-facing one of 8 MP, internal memory of 32 GB with processing power of 4 GB—it certainly is a welcome player. As it is relatively new to the market, expect to drop a pretty penny around $769 for the 32 GB variant and $869 for the 128 GB version.

DJI Phantom 4 Pro

It’s been a good year for drones with several stellar releases and high demand. The DJI Phantom stands a bit above the rest with its long-distance control, return-to-home button feature, both forward and rear obstacle detection, subject recognition, 60fps 4k video, and some other kickass features. This would be a great gift for the family as it offers opportunity for a collective time outside to catch some excellent shots and views.

Razer Blade Pro

If you’ve got a gamer in the family, this will definitely make their year! This gaming laptop has been dubbed as a “desktop inside your laptop”. The CPU is a 2.6GHz Intel Core i7-6700HQ processor. The screen is a pretty solid 17.3 inches. The key feature is the storage capacity of 512 GB which also has a 2TB variant—something that means a big deal to any gamer. A boasting highlight is the mechanical keyboard with an oversized touchpad that was just made to be appreciated. With its high performance components, the price of $3,699 is worth it.
