Gift Guide for Him and Her: The Tech Lover

It is getting to that time of the year again when we start thinking about what to get people for the dreaded C word (Christmas). While it might still seem a little early, we want to ensure that you are fully prepared this coming Christmas (and even earlier if needed). One way to make Christmas more stress-free is by starting your Christmas gift shopping early. This helps to spread the cost, and avoids any last-minute impulse spending and any stress about delivery times or stock levels for the must-have gadgets. So below, we are going to go through what the best tech gadgets are for this Christmas and our gift guide for him and her. We will aim to give you at least 1-2 budget picks for good measure. So you can make your choices well in advance of the big day and make sure you get the best prices. 

Top Gadget 1:A Brand-New OLED or QLED Television

Ok, we are starting off with a very premium gift. But why not show the best that we have to offer? In-store and online, we have a large range of Neo QLED televisions, Samsung OLED, and Sony OLED TVs that will bring a smile to any tech lover's face. But why should you consider one?

Well, not only are each of our QLED and OLED televisions' Smart TVs', which allow you to enjoy your favourite apps at the touch of a button, but they also have crystal clear resolution, an elegant slimline and a minimalist look. Furthermore, many OLED and QLED TVs have 120Hz refresh rates for quick and seamless gaming, viewing, ad streaming, and in many cases, immersive 3D audio, often supported by leading audio companies like Sonos or Sony.

A real tech lover won't be able to say no to the incredible quality that these televisions bring, and with prices ranging from €600-€4000, there is a brand-new OLED or QLED to suit any budget.

Top Gadget 2:Apple Watch SE

An Apple Watch is not just a typical watch; it is a fitness and sleep tracker, a messenger, a phone, and a mindfulness tool all in one. We have chosen the SE model because it is an affordable Apple watch model with a suite of expensive features. It is the ultilamte tech gift! 

Starting at €329 and available with a range of different coloured bands, the Apple Watch SE has a host of features that we are sure any tech, fitness or health lover will need this Christmas. Here are some of the key features that we make the Apple Watch SE a great option.

  • You get access to Apple Fitness +, which will give you access to various workout routines, Pilates, yoga, and guided meditations. In addition, it looks to help you to improve your overall health and well-being efficiently. You get 3 months of Fitness + for free when you buy an Apple Watch. 
  • Apple Watch SE features a Retina display that's over 30% larger than the Series 3 display. And it uses the S5 SiP with 64‑bit dual-core processor, which is up to two times faster than the S3 in Series 3. Together, these improvements help you do more with more.

  • You can store all of your card, boarding pass, and ticket information through the wallet function on your Apple Watch.

Top Gadget 3:Wireless Earphones or Headphones

If your friend/family member does not own a pair of wireless earphones or headphones, then this could be the perfect gift for them. Wireless earphones and headphones are one of the most popular gift purchases both in-store and online, and that is because they are so convenient for both work and play. Listen to the music that you love on the run or in the gym, or enjoy seamless noise cancellation while you work. Many of the wireless earphones and headphones in our collection are well-priced, with the Jabra Elite earphones coming in at €80. These are just a small example of our incredible wireless audio quality.

Alternatively, if you want to buy something a little more upmarket, then the Apple Airpods Max is the way to go for sure. Their sound and style are amazing, but the price tag is on the upper end of the scale!

Budget Pick 1: Tassimo Vivy 2.0

Is your tech-loving friend a coffee lover as well? If so, we have a suite of incredible coffee pod machines available in-store and online. These coffee machines are not only super-affordable (€50-70) but produce delicious coffee at the touch of a button. Plus, if you or your friend are always paying for coffee, then a coffee machine would also be of huge benefit to your pockets.

These coffee machines are compact, easy to use, and available in various colours. All you need to do is buy the coffee pods you like the most, and bingo; you can enjoy your favourite coffee immediately.

Budget Pick 2:Computer Accessories

If your friend really is a fan of technology, then he/she will always need the newest computer accessories (if they don't have them). Here at DID, we have a large selection of computer accessories ranging from screen cleaning kits to wireless mice and keyboards to laptop sleeves, adapters, and cables. The best part is, they are all really affordable. Which also makes them great stocking fillers! Each of the laptop and computer accessories that we stock ranges in price from €10-€40, so you will be sure to find something that will work for your budget.
