Still on the hunt for the perfect prezzie for someone? What about giving them some shiny new phone-related tech? If you need some inspiration, check out these top mobile gift picks…

Google Pixel 8 – Helpful every day, Google in every way.

If they’re into snapping and sharing pics on their socials, they’ll love a phone with a great camera. And the Pixel 8 has one of the best around. The new 50MP wide camera and 12MP ultrawide camera setup is pretty unbeatable, and its low light performance is now even better.

The Pixel 8 camera is just made for pointing and shooting, but it’s packed with fun features too. With Magic Eraser, you can get rid of unwanted background images and AI will fill in the gap perfectly naturally. And for perfect sounding videos, there’s Audio Magic Eraser. It uses Google AI to reduce annoying background sounds, leaving just the things worth hearing. If the dog barks half-way through a video of crackers being pulled at the Christmas dinner table, you can shush it right down.

Marshall Emberton II portable Bluetooth Speaker – party on, at home or on the go.

Buying a gift for someone who’s a bit of a party animal? Marshall is one of the biggest names in the speaker world, and the Emberton II portable speaker packs a real punch.

Two 2-inch full range drivers pump out full and clear sound in 360°, so they can stream their Chrimbo playlist from their phone for everyone in the room to enjoy. A single charge gives up to 30 hours of battery life, and it’s portable enough to take the party anywhere. And if they take it outdoors, IP67 dust and water resistance means not even rain or a White Christmas can stop the fun.

Huawei Watch GT 4 – a super smart personal trainer.

Are they into health and fitness? Then give them the gift of a personal trainer. Not a real one – that would be way too expensive – but if you buy them a Huawei Watch GT 4, they’ll have a personal trainer on their wrist 24/7.

This smart watch can monitor over 100 workout modes including running, skiing, football, or diving – and it’ll produce stats to help them discover how to improve their performance. And when they’ve finished working out, it can also keep track of sleep, stress levels and other vitals. Plus, with up to 14 days of battery life, they won’t have to think about charging it until the new year!

Sonos Era 100 wireless multi-room speaker – for home-filling sound.

Buying for a real music lover who’s always listening to music around the home? This Sonos Era 100 speaker has such a compact design that they can place it anywhere in the house. Small size doesn’t mean small sound though – the Sonos Era 100 has a separate woofer and tweeter speakers capable of pumping out audio with real depth and clarity. And with the Sonos app, things get really clever. ‘TruePlay’ tuning tech will analyse the acoustics of their room and then tweak the EQ of the speaker to make every track sound its very best.

You can connect to it wirelessly too, so with Wi-Fi or Bluetooth they can easily stream music from their smartphone with no cables getting in the way. All without interruptions from calls or notifications to boot!

Motorola Razr 40 – a foldable phone for trendsetters.

If they like keeping up with the latest trends, why not get them something that’s all the rage these days – a foldable phone? The Motorola Razr 40 has an iconic flip design with lots of top specs under the hood.

View notifications on an external display with the phone closed, so you’re always up to date. Then flip it open to reveal an ultra-smooth, incredibly vivid 6.9" pOLED screen combined with multidimensional sound for immersive entertainment. Add to that its 64MP and 32MP high-res cameras along with outstanding battery life, and you’ve got a phone like no other.

Xiaomi Redmi Note 12 – a budget-friendly Android.

If you’re on a budget, but still want to treat them to a quality Android phone… take a look at the Xiaomi Redmi Note 12. Its stunning 6.67-inch Full HD+ AMOLED display has a lightning-fast 120 Hz refresh rate, so even the most fast-paced games will run smoothly.

And when they fancy snapping some pics, there's a trio of cameras on the back to capture every moment - including a 50MP main camera for amazing detail. Plus, there’s 13MP front camera for all lovers of a good selfie.
