Best Tech Christmas Gift Ideas for 2021
If you have anyone on your list who loves binge-watching in ultra HD quality, get them one of these high-performing streaming devices.
Roku Ultra is a crowd favorite and for a good reason. It lets you stream your favorite movies or shows in brilliant 4K, HDR, and Dolby Vision picture quality from Netflix, Amazon Prime, Hulu, and tons of other streaming networks.
The package includes a remote and a pair of headphones that you can plug directly into the box for private listening, as well as an ethernet cable input for streaming 4K/HDR videos.
Apple TV 4K
The Apple TV 4k is an elegant and impeccably polished streaming box that can push out 4K HDR images and support apps for all major streaming platforms. It comes with a touch-enabled clickpad that provides precise control, as well as a 4K High Frame Rate HDR, with Dolby Atmos sound capabilities.

The package includes an Apple 4K TV box, an Apple TV remote, a power cord, and a lightning-to USB cable.
Speakers and Soundbars
Smart speakers and soundbars are gaining popularity among music lovers, as well as binge-watchers. If you’re looking to get this type of device, here are some of the most impressive ones you can find on the market.
Amazon Echo Dot Speaker
Sounds fancy, but all that this is is a smart speaker. It comes with a voice command feature that lets you ask questions, play music, ask for shopping recommendations, and even interact with other smart home accessories.
The only downside is, Amazon Echo Dot isn’t the best smart speaker for music lovers. Its puck-shaped appearance makes it a little too small to produce high-quality sound. But it’s still a terrific all-around device for any technophile on your shopping list.
Sonos Arc Soundbar
Another choice is the Sonos Arc soundbar. Featuring the immersive sound of Dolby Atmos, it delivers a spectacular, cinematic surround sound that can rival a movie theater.
Sonos Arc is also a smart device, allowing you to control it using a remote, thru the app, by voice, and Apple AirPlay 2. It’s not the cheapest item on this list, but if your loved ones are movie buffs, they’ll surely thank you for it.
Got any gamers on your Christmas list? What better way to make them happy than to gift them with premium quality gaming headphones.
Sony’s WH-1000XM4 headphones are one of the best headphones available today. Firstly, because it has a fantastic noise cancellation feature that automatically adjusts to your environment. Second, it’s wireless/ Bluetooth enabled, which lets you move freely while playing or listening to your favorite songs. Lastly, the lightweight, ergonomic design is great for long wear without feeling weary.
It practically got everything you could ever ask for in headphones.
HyperX Cloud Alpha S

Although it isn’t wireless, these headphones provide comfort and a superb audio output – with virtual 7.1 surround sound. HyperX Cloud Alpha S is compatible with PCs, laptops, and even Sony PS4.
SteelSeries Arctis 1
SteelSeries’ Arctis 1 gaming headset is also an excellent pick for on-the-go gamers. It’s compatible with many devices and platforms, such as mobile devices, tablets, PCs, PS4, Nintendo Wii, and Switch Lite.
It’s ideal for prolonged use because it’s easy to carry around with its detachable microphone and sleek, low-profile design.
Wide Screen, HD TVs
55-inch TCL 6 Series TV
If you want to be an extra gift-giver this year, get your loved ones this 55- inch 4K/HDR television from TCL 6 Series. Its micro-LEDs and quantum dots technology give it the capacity to produce bright, colorful, and sharp images. You can also play the latest video formats, so you’re to catch the newest shows in ultra HD quality.
Google Nest Mesh System
Have you heard of mesh WiFi systems? We’ve tested a good number of them, and we can say that they’re just fantastic! A mesh WiFi system is a great way to get high-speed WiFi at home.
It’s a perfect accessory for homes densely packed with WiFi “dead zones”. And to make it better, the Google Nest Mesh system is not that inexpensive. It’s the ultimate solution for anyone struggling to stay connected.
Logitech Harmony is a practical gift for those looking to set up a SmartHome. This device is basically a universal remote that allows users to control home appliances such as TVs, soundbars, Blu-Ray DVD players, and more.

Those who love travel and photography will be thrilled by this gift. It offers high-quality images without the bulky accessories that usually come with professional cameras.
Panasonic Lumix DMC-LX10 has been one of our go-to travel cameras for years. It may be a bit pricey but a lot less expensive than many high-end DSLRs. It’s powerful enough to capture stunning shots and compact enough to fit in a trouser pocket.
Polaroid Hi-Print is a great accessory for those who love collating memories in a scrapbook or photo album. It has a sleek and colorful design that’s appealing to the eyes. When you purchase the package, it includes step-by-step directions for speedy set-up, as well as basic editing features to help users create the perfect photos.
Amazon Kindle Paperwhite
The Amazon Kindle Paperwhite (10th gen) is the most excellent e-reader on the market right now. Not only does it have tremendous storage capacity, but it’s also waterproof and comes in a variety of colors.
You can store hundreds, probably thousands of books, including novellas, short stories, poems, comics, and PDF. The battery also lasts for several weeks.
To state the obvious, it’s the perfect present for bookworms that you know!
The Crosstour CR300 Dashcam is an excellent choice for extra cautious drivers. It’s one of the most affordable dash cams ever, but users can still get high-quality 1080p video recording.
LIFX Z LED Light Strip
The LIFX Z LED smart light strip is great for those who love doing DIY home decors. That’s because it’s easy to use and it also has Smartwiring features. You can pair it with smart LEDs with Alexa or Siri or add them to an existing SmartThings or Nest ecosystem.

Portable Power Supplies
Anker 10000 Portable Charger
While a power bank isn’t the most exciting gift, it indeed is a beneficial one. One of the crowd favorites, the low-cost Anker’s 10,000mAh PowerIQ battery pack charges a wide range of heavy-duty smartphones, such as iPhone 12, Galaxy S20, as well as iPad mini 5.
Despite being the lightest and slimmest of its kind, it can charge an iPad mini five times faster than a standard battery pack. Anker’s MultiProtect safety technology also defends against overcharging, short-circuiting, and temperature fluctuations. This charming tiny present will be loved by anyone who just can’t live without their phones.
Bluetti EB40 400WH/300W Portable Power Station
And what’s the use of all these gadgets and devices when they’re out of power and battery? Good thing there’s Bluetti Portable Power Station. It has a built-in Samsung lithium-ion battery cell that can handle up to 400W of AC output.
You can’t just charge small devices here, but also small appliances that are under 300W. It’s the best power supply for outdoor, off-road activities, such as camping and hiking.
