For the ultimate tech gift inspiration, look no further...

 

DJI FPV Drone Combo

Who to buy for: For those who want to take to the skies…

There’s nothing more fun than heading out to the park with a drone to capture some beautiful birds-eye footage… unless you add the thrill of first-person viewing into the mix!

The DJI FPV Drone Combo comes with a pair of goggles that puts the flyer in pilot’s seat perspective, and it’s a real rush when you hit that 86mph top speed. Plus, at a silky 60 frames per second in 4K, it’s nothing but smooth sailing.

 

Canon PowerShot G7 X MK II Compact Camera Vlogging Kit

Who to buy for: For the future social media star

Does your special someone like to share their passion and talents with the world? Do they have dreams of YouTube superstardom? Then the Canon Vlogger Kit is the perfect tech gift, complete with high performance Powershot G7 X Mark II Camera, a handy and flexible Gorillapod and a big 32GB memory card so they need never worry about space.

Plus, its wireless connection means they can get their latest video online the moment they’re ready!

 

Dyson Supersonic Hair Dryer

Who to buy for: For those that want to make every day a good hair day

Know someone who wants to look their best every day, but is worried about the damage heat styling can do? The Dyson Supersonic may blow them away.

With intelligent heat control and a far-from-traditional design, this is not your average hair dryer. It’s the best gadget to help them find their frizz-free salon-style look without the unnecessary heat. And the new flyaway tool will help them pin down those pesky stray hairs and get a smooth, shiny finish. It’ll make their Christmas!

 

Cricut Joy

Who to buy for: For those who love ‘cutting-edge’ tech…

Treat your artistic friend to tech that not only helps them realise their creativity, but inspires it.

The Cricut Joy is a cutting machine that has all kinds of neat tricks. It’ll cut shapes in 50 different kinds of material including vinyl and iron-on, and the app that comes with it is a creator’s best friend. Everything they need to design their own phone case, greetings cards, or even just snazzy food labels is right there, ready to go. And it can do continuous cuts up to 4 feet, so no project is too big!

 

Arlo Pro 3 Floodlight Quad HD Security Camera

Who to buy for: For that friend who’s security savvy

Name a better gift than peace of mind! The Arlo Pro 3 Floodlight Quad HD Security Camera is totally wireless and weatherproof, making it as much at home outside as it is inside. Your security conscious friend can place it almost anywhere and it’ll connect directly over Wi-Fi. No bridges needed, just turn it on, connect and go.

Elsewhere, the floodlight itself is brighter than a car headlight, making it a sure deterrent for anyone up to no good. And there’s even a built-in microphone and speaker, so they can talk directly to whoever appears on camera. Even if it’s just the friendly postman.

 

Segway Ninebot E25E Electric Folding Scooter

Who to buy for: For those that like to travel in style

Mountain bikes are so last year. Electric scooters are incredibly ‘in’ right now, and they’re getting more and more awesome features. The Segway Ninebot E25E may be lightweight, but with multi-terrain skills and a top speed of 15.5mph it’s no slouch. A range of 45 kilometres means they can do lap, after lap, after lap, and still have plenty of juice left.

We love the addition of built-in front, rear and brake lights too. With these, they’ll be seen much easier when they get a scoot on at night. Just remember to keep it strictly on private property!

 

Google Nest Hub (2nd Gen) Smart Display

Who to buy for: For those that want to make housework less of a chore

A smart screen that keeps your home, entertainment and schedule in order – what’s not to love about the Google Nest Hub?

This trusty piece of tech makes for the perfect life hack around the home in more ways than one. They’ll be able to control their connected lights, heating, TV and speakers just by asking Google, they can watch their favourite YouTuber’s latest vlog in a matter of seconds. Or they can ask for that highly rated recipe for a bit of mealtime inspiration. There really is no limit to what this smart display can do.

Whatever they need help with, whenever they need it, is only ever a quick “Hey Google” away.

 

Ring Video Doorbell

Who to buy for: For the friend that always has visitors

Imagine answering the door without having to get up, or even be at home. Better yet, imagine never having to go to the post office to pick up a missed delivery. These are the gifts within a gift you’re treating your mate to when you get them a Ring Video Doorbell.

With this smarter-than-your-average doorbell, they can check up on what’s happening outside their house directly on their phone, tablet or laptop in Full HD quality. It’s got two-way audio, so they can chat to the person at the door without needing to open it first. And when it gets dark out, the night-vision makes it a nifty security camera too.
