If youy're buying a new phone, consider also a power bank, wireless charger or other accessories such as a case.


A tablet makes a great Christmas present for your nearest and dearest, as always-on devices that let you work and play.

We've found that tablets can be a big hit with the over-50s, as well as teenagers and commuters.

Activity trackers

With so many of us pledging to lose weight or get fit for the new year, a fitness- or activity tracker is an ideal Christmas gift. Fitbit is one of the biggest players in this market, but there are plenty of alternatives to choose from too.

Our pick of the best is the Fitbit Charge 4, which usually retails at £129.99 but is currently on offer at just £99.99 at Amazon.

Gifts for kids

Kids increasingly want - and expect - high-tech presents, but few people can afford to give their children iPads for Christmas.

There are many cheaper options when it comes to tablets and other techy gifts for kids, as demonstrated in our round-up, which you can read here, along with our separate guides to the best robot toys and coding games for kids.

In addition to being lots of fun, these gifts are often educational too - a lesson in disguise.

These days it's wireless earbuds such as the Apple AirPods that really impress, however - check out the best Bluetooth earbuds (as well as some cheaper options).

Best speakers for Christmas

The best speakers can cost hundreds of pounds, but getting better (or simply louder) audio from your phone, tablet or laptop is easily achievable without spending a fortune.

We round up the best cheap Bluetooth speakers to gift this Christmas here.

If you've got more money to spend on a speaker (perhaps this is a Christmas gift for yourself!) then check out our overall best speakers chart here.

One of our favourite budget speakers is the Ultimate Ears Wonderboom 2, which will cost you £69.99 from Amazon today.

Of course, it's also worth considering a smart speaker, and Amazon has some incredible deals on Echo right now.


The ideal gift for a book worm, an e-reader lets you hundreds of books into a single slim and light digital device. E-readers are cheaper than tablets, optimised for reading, and with much better and battery life.

Our pick of the best is the Kindle Paperwhite, which is available from Amazon from £119.99.


Drones are the new remote control car, and they don't have to cost the world.

Click here to see the absolute best drones that may well cost you a small fortune, but we've also got a round-up of the best cheap drones here.

In fact, some of the most fun we've had is with this UFO mini drone, an ideal stocking filler at £12.99 from Amazon.

Games consoles

A new games console is one of the most exciting gifts you can open on Christmas morning, because the endless entertainment that follows can last all the way until next Christmas (and you'll know just what to get them next time - a game or two!)

Oculus Quest 2 and the new PlayStation 5 seem to be the big-hitters this year, but PS5 at least is also as easy to find as gold dust. The stock situation for the updated Xbox Series X and Series S is better.

But don't forget the old favourites: we have no doubt that the Nintendo Switch will continue to be a huge seller this Christmas, as well as the likes of the Xbox One S and PS4.

See the best games consoles available in our chart here.


We've all got a number of games on our smartphones and tablets, but a full-on game makes a great gift this festive season  and a relatively inexpensive one in terms of tech.

Instant cameras

You'd think instant cameras would be consigned to the past, but nostalgia has dragged them kicking and screaming into the 21st Century, and surprisingly enough they're actually a welcome presence.

In an age of instant filters and digital backups, there's something to be said for a camera that doesn't let you pick the perfect photo out of ten options, and that immediately gives you a physical print to hang onto.

We've tested a selection for our guide to the best instant cameras, but for gift giving one of our favourites us the affordable Instax mini 11.

Gaming keyboards

Another option for gamers, this time the PC-loving variety, is a new gaming keyboard.

We've picked out 10 of the best gaming keyboards available to buy in the UK, so take a look here.

Among the best is the Logitech G915 gaming keyboard, which is available direct from Logitech.

Gaming mice
