Or do you run around the shops like a maniac on Christmas Eve looking for the perfect present? There are numerous Christmas gift ideas, especially for technology enthusiasts that suit every budget.
The product range goes from “definitely useful” to “just for fun” to “is somehow cool, but is a bit pointless”. To make your decision a little easier, we’ve picked out some tech gadgets that should please everyone – not just nerds!
Technology Gadgets Tip 1: Gaming
The first category of our Christmas gifts is about gaming. On one hand, many new games for the PlayStation, XBox etc. have come on the market this year, which should please everyone and not just keep hardcore gamers happy. For example, the latest installment of Assassin’s Creed (Assassin’s Creed Odyssey) or Desperados III. Otherwise, of course, classics like Fifa 19 or the Western Shooter Red Dead Redemption 2 are good contenders to be presents under the Christmas tree.
On the other hand, If you prefer to dig deeper, you can make your loved one happy with a game console, for example. Retro consoles are currently very much in vogue at the moment. Nintendo already has the Nintendo Classic Mini (SNES) on the market. We could see the Nintendo N64 Classic Mini released in November 2018, just in time for the holiday season. But even a retro PlayStation or the C64 Mini are exciting technology gifts for Christmas.
Technology Gadgets Tip 2: Language Assistants and Smart Home
Smart home and language assistants are a hot topic at the moment. That’s why we shouldn’t leave them out of our gift finder for technology gifts. For example, in terms of voice assistant, you can choose between Amazon Alexa , Apple’s HomePod and Google Home . In addition, many home appliances now offer a voice control based on one of the these language assistants.
Other gadgets in this category are speaker systems with voice assistant. For example, you can control your music or have the sound of your TV broadcasted. There are many of these systems on the market, for example Sonos, Panasonic or JBL.
Technology gifts in the Smart Home area
With smart lighting or smart heating systems, you can quickly turn your home or home into a smart home. There are also intelligent sockets, with which you can operate electrical applicances or remote control lamps, etc.
Mood lights like Eve Flare are also a nice Christmas gift idea. These can also be controlled via app or voice control. A little less smart, but more practical are sockets that also have USB ports . For example, you can charge multiple devices via USB and regular socket at the same time.
For more security, intelligent doorbell systems such as Ring .

And there is lots of talk about robots. Of these, there is now virtually a useful helper for every area of life, for example robots that mow the lawn or vacuum the house.
But they are also available in smaller versions. For example, you can gain entry into programming, for example with the Droid Inventor Kit. Even with a Raspberry Pi many exciting projects can be implemented without extensive programming knowledge being required. For example, even inconspicuous home devices can be transformed into a smart home-capable device.
Technique Gadgets Tips 4: For Sporty people
Do you enjoy sports or do you like to be outdoors? There are also matching technology gadgets that are suitable as a gift for Christmas.

This turns a normal bike into a smart bike and, thanks to additional safety features such as a built-in alarm system and a digital bell, means more safety on the road.
