The Best Holiday Gifts for your Tech-Obsessed Relatives
The holidays are in full swing, and gift shopping just switched to “serious” mode. If your gifts aren’t already wrapped under the tree or packaged tightly in bubble wrap at the post office, then this blog is for you.
Perhaps you’re up to speed on all the latest tech gadgets, or maybe you’re a self-proclaimed tech-challenged person who’s still begging your kids and grandkids to set up your Spotify playlists. Wherever you find yourself in this digital age, we have some ideas for the best holiday gifts for the tech-obsessed loved ones in your life.
Apple Watch Series 7
If you still think that a wrist watch is for telling time only, then the Apple Watch Series 7 will exceed your wildest expectations. Whether you’re shopping for a grandchild or friend, this watch is the gift that keeps on giving. We like to think that this gadget is all about “more.” For instance, the Retina display is always on and it features 20% more screen area and a larger display. What does this mean? Basically, you can read more text on the screen, and the on-screen buttons are larger. Also, you get up to 70% more display brightness as compared to previous Apple Watch generations. Oh, and with 18-hour battery life, you won’t have to worry about running low on juice. All of this “more” is packed in the Apple Watch Series 7 while the actual dimensions of the watch are minimally altered.
If you’re looking for a few add-on gifts for stocking stuffers or that extra “wow” factor, consider snagging a few watchbands for different look options. Stylish, durable and tech advanced all within one gift. And if you happen to have two lucky relatives that would love the Apple Watch Series 7, check out your local Verizon Victra store for a holiday deal to buy two and save $250.
‘Tis the season for tablets. Now, if you think of a tablet as a stone for ancient writing, then we have some work to do before you shop for those tech geniuses in your life. But with a little information, you’ll be on your way to wrapping one of the most impressive gifts you might ever give. Let’s take a look at the Samsung Galaxy Tab A7 Lite. It doesn’t have “Lite” in the name for nothing. These tablets are easy to slip into a backpack or purse and take on the go. If you’re shopping for someone who travels or attends college, then this gift should top your list. The storage option is ready for all the media with its expandable storage option.
This tablet gets even better for the Galaxy user. The Samsung Galaxy Tab A7 Lite connects to multiple Galaxy devices to become a personal entertainment hub. Still thinking about those slippery hands that might drop this high-tech gift? Fear not, you can purchase the Book Cover for extra protection and a sleek look. Now, here’s for the real holiday magic; Verizon Victra stores are offering a special holiday deal on tablets where you can save up to $200 when trading in an old tablet! Out with the old, in with the new.
Mophie Wireless Charging Pads
Think a charging device means a long cord and access to a wall outlet? Think again. The Mophie Wireless Charging Pad is sleek, small, stylish and reliable! The smooth rubberized finish grips the phone perfectly for an effective charge, and it’s fast. This is the perfect tech gift for someone who seems to have it all, and it’s a great option if you’re not quite sure which device the person uses, since this charger is compatible with an array of electronics from Apple Airpods to the Samsung Galaxy S21. It’s safe to say that this is a gift that any tech lover will appreciate.
JBL Flip 5 Waterproof Bluetooth Speaker
Looking for another gift idea that’s sure to be a crowd-pleaser? The JBL Flip 5 Waterproof Bluetooth Speaker will sound off smiles as it’s unwrapped. Music lovers will enjoy the deep powerful sound from the speaker, and it can sync up to two smartphones or tablets.
