Yes, we know, receiving gifts is awesome, but it’s way cooler to make them, believe us! That feeling you have when you see that somebody is delighted with the gift he or she just received from you is priceless!
If you’re after some cool stuff, but really don’t know what to buy, here’s a short tip: tech is always a good option.
And don’t worry, this doesn’t mean that you’ll need to look all over the Internet for some nice gifts, as we already did it for you. Below you can find a list with some of the best Christmas gifts you can make this December!
Let’s see what we have here.
1. Amazon Echo Dot 2nd Generation
The all new Echo Dot is the perfect gift for anybody who’s looking forward to experience the smart home concept.
It’s a hands-free, voice-controlled device using Amazon’s Alexa to play music, control devices, provides information, read the news, set alarms and many more.
It can also be connected to speakers, so you can enjoy audio content at a high quality, while the 7 far-field microphones can hear you even in the noisiest environments. Definitely one of the best Christmas gifts you can make this year!
2. Fujifilm INSTAX Mini 8 Instant Camera
A camera is always an inspired choice, especially when it’s able to instantly print the photos it takes! This cool little thing from Fujifilm might be just what you’re looking for!
It’s able to detect the best aperture settings, through a flashing led, so you can capture the perfect photo every time, while the new High-Key mode can take brighter pictures with a soft look.
You can also get it in eight different colors, by the way!
3. Qshell Wireless Bluetooth Beanie Headset
When it’s getting colder outside, listening to music through a pair of headphones isn’t the most pleasant experience, since your head starts to freeze after just a few minutes.
Luckily, there are things like the Qshell Beanie, able to keep you warm, while listening to your favorite tunes.
To be more specific, we’re talking about a double knitted cap with an integrated pair of stereo headphones, connecting to your phone via Bluetooth, as well as a set of user-friendly buttons on the side, so you can easily control the music. The built-in battery lasts for about six hours, which is more than enough. I mean, who stays out in the cold for longer?!
4. Force1 U45 Jay Quadcopter
There’s no doubt that drones are – maybe – the hottest gadgets of the year. By the way, are they gadgets or just toys?
Nevermind, they’re still cool. If you want to make a cool gift this Christmas, you can opt for this model from Force1 and you won’t break the bank either.
It features a 2MP camera, able to capture 720p video and aerial footage, while the FPV function of the remote, with VR headset compatibility, is just amazing, allowing you to watch live video feed of your flight directly on your phone!
5. PlayStation 4 Slim 500GB – Uncharted 4 Bundle
Come on, who doesn’t love a great console? You simply can’t go wrong with this PS4 bundle!
We’re talking about the Slim, 500GB version, which comes with a DualShock 4 Wireless Controller, as well as the Uncharted 4: A Thief’s End game.
Otherwise, there’s nothing about a PlayStation you need to know, since we’re talking about one of the most popular consoles in the world.
6. Fannego 3D VR Headset
Just like drones, virtual reality has been another one of 2016’s big things. And a kit is way cheaper than a drone!
For example, this one, from Fannego, is less than $30 and it’s made from high-quality materials, making sure that you can enjoy the VR experience for hours.
If your phone’s battery lasts that much, of course. It has high-grade optical resin lens, as well as an adjustable T-shaped strap system, so you can easily fit it on your head. One of our personal favorites!
7. GoPro Hero4 Silver
Now that the Hero5 has been released, you can get last year’s model, the Hero4 Silver, for an excellent price!
And it’s still pretty awesome, being able to shoot in 1080p @ 60fps, as well as 720p @ 120fps, thanks to the 12 MP sensor.
We shouldn’t forget about its underwater capabilities, nor the SuperView capture style, which make this camera one of this year’s best Christmas gifts.
8. Fitbit Charge 2 Fitness Band
If a smartwatch isn’t something you really need, you might as well opt for a fitness band, like the Charge 2, from Fitbit.
Besides tracking your sleep, workouts and pulse, you can also see call, text and calendar notifications on the OLED display and find out how many calories you’re burning through a day, how many steps you make and even how many floors you’ve climbed! Pretty neat, huh?
9. Amir 3 in 1 Lens Kit
If you want to buy something for somebody that’s into photography, a lens kit could be one of the best Christmas gifts!
This kit, from Amir, has a fisheye lens, a macro lens and a super wide angle lens, which can be clipped on pretty much any smartphone out there.
Made of high-class glass, they can reduce lens flare, as well as ghosting, caused by reflections. A nice little gift which can definitely make any smartphone user happy!
10. Oculus Rift
Ok, not this is something a bit special, since the price is pretty big. Still, a virtual reality headset like the Oculus Rift is something we would also love to receive.
Seriously, is anybody out there willing to send us one?
If you ask us, this is pretty much the ultimate VR experience, considering how advanced the games for this headset are, while the designed is coming directly from the future!
11. Amazon Fire Kids Edition Tablet
Hey, let’s not forget that every year kids are the ones who receive the most presents. If yours seems interested in technology, a tablet could make one of the best Christmas gifts ever!
For example, this Fire model, from Amazon, designed especially for them, is an excellent pick! It comes with a 7” IPS display, front and rear cameras, as well as 8 or 16 GB of expandable storage.
Also, the best part is that it provides access to over 10,000 books, movies, TV shows and apps, as well as parental controls, so you can manage the way your child is using it.
12. Amazon Fire HD 8 Tablet
On the other side, if you want a tablet for grown-up, Amazon has something for you as well.
The all new Fire HD 8 comes with an 8” HD display, being powered by a 1.3 GHz quad-core chip and featuring 16 or 32 GB of space.
The spec sheet is completed by Dolby Audio technology and 50% more RAM, for faster performance. Oh, and it’s Alexa-enabled, so you can just press it and ask some questions!
What’s your pick?
And we’re all done, ladies and gents. Above you can find a few of the best Christmas gifts you can make this year. Honestly, we’d love to receive anything from this list, so we really can’t decide upon a favorite. Ok, maybe that Oculus Rift kit is a bit appealing, but once again, Christmas is not just about presents, right?
