Let’s face it, being a tech-head has become all the rage in 2018.
From flying ultra-expensive drones, to vlogging European travel adventures with a 4K GoPro, many of us are now using a sophisticated level of tech on a day-to-day basis.
Expanding your knowledge of commonly available tech products is a great starting point, however choosing a gift for those who are bit more tech-savvy can be difficult sometimes. If you’re stuck for ideas on what to buy the tech-lover in your life this Christmas (or are simply looking to spoil yourself silly), we’ve rounded up some last minute gift inspo.
PlayStation Classic by Sony
Following the success of Nintendo’s console re-releases. Last week Sony followed suit with a reissued version of its original PlayStation.
Featuring a sleek, scaled down console (in comparison to the OG), the package which you can buy for $150, comes with two dual-shock controllers, as well as 20 pre-loaded vintage games, including Final Fantasy VII, Metal Gear Solid and Tekken 3 – all you need for a dose of 32-bit nostalgia is to hook the console up to your TV’s HDMI and USB
Omnicharge Omni USB-C Portable Power Bank
This Omnicharge power bank is the perfect gift for those who travel with multiple gadgets (which is pretty much all of us).
The device features two high-speed USB-C ports and a duo of standard USB ports, ensuring that no mobile phone, laptop, or pair of wireless headphones is left in the dark.
If you’re a fan of beautifully designed tech, you’re in luck, as the power bank features an incredibly sleek design and a special OLED display, which allows users to keep an eye on its battery level, power output, and temperature.
Google Pixel 3 XL
Although it’s hardly a stocking filler, if you’re looking to upgrade someone’s handset this Christmas, Google's latest flagship device; The Pixel 3 XL is a terrific option.
It comes with a really solid processer, gorgeous display, and its camera has the legs to take your Instagram game to the next level.
Speaking of the Pixel 3’s camera, it’s arguably the best camera to ever exist on a handheld mobile device - all thanks to Google’s insane camera specs (12.2-megapixel (f/1.8, 1.4-micron) and their new wide-angle camera for selfies – trust us, it’s a winner!
