Laptops

Dell XPS 13

The Dell XPS 13 is the dream of every gamer out there. For $1,170, this one is another great upgrade from the previous Dell XPS version. It comes with a powerful processor built to withstand heavy gaming. The 13-inch screen with almost no bezel offers you enough room to perform multiple tasks. There’s approximately 7 hours of battery life for regular tasks – 3 hours if you’re doing some light gaming. The laptop weighs less than 3 pounds, so you can carry it around with ease.

Smart-Home Technology

Amazon Echo

Smart tech has taken over the world with all the ease and convenience it carries. For only $60, you can get your friend Amazon Echo smart speaker. This smart speaker from Amazon activates on voice command and comes with built-in Alexa. Whether you want to get updates on the weather, listen to some music, check the latest news, or even ask Alexa to call Spectrum customer service (for Spanish customers: Spectrum Service al cliente es Espanol). Just be within the earshot of Echo and ask Alexa to do it for you.

Ecobee SmartThermostat

For a $250 damage, this gadget is perfect for that friend who is never satisfied with the temperature in their house. The Ecobee SmartThermostat comes with a high-resolution screen, built-in Wi-Fi connectivity, and a remote sensor. This smart thermostat system lets you adjust temperature around the house. Plus, there’s built-in Alexa and Google as well, so your friend can have the temperature adjusted upon voice command.

Gaming

Nintendo Switch

Nintendo Switch is the perfect gift for a friend with fond childhood memories of the classic Nintendo console. For $350, this version of Nintendo Switch comes with an upgraded OLED screen. Moreover, this model has an adjustable stand and a LAN port for effortless online gaming. The Nintendo Switch also switches between handheld and docked mode so you can play games on your TV.

Furthermore, if you’re planning to go with Nintendo Switch while keeping it budget-friendly, then a Nintendo Switch Lite would be another best option. This one costs only $185 because it doesn’t offer docked gaming.

Oculus Quest 2

For an avid gamer buddy, the Oculus Quest 2 is another perfect bet. This one is cheaper than Nintendo Switch as it costs only $299. The Oculus Quest 2 offers VR gaming. The visuals are impeccable and the controls are effortless enough to be used by gamers of any age.

Smartphones

Apple iPhone 13

Smartphones will always be the most desired gifts for every holiday season. Starting from $700, this year’s iPhone iteration includes not many changes to the appearance. The performance, however, indicates otherwise. The camera system has been upgraded. There’s a faster processing chip and the new battery lasts two and a half hours longer than the previous version. All in all, the iPhone 13 would make for an excellent gift this holiday season.

One Plus 9

The One Plus smartphone range is affordable and capable enough to take the other smartphone giants by the horns. The One Plus 9 costs $680 and offers an incredible screen, faster performance, extensive battery life, and an equally great camera. All in all, the One Plus 9 smartphone would be a great gift to invest in.
