Apple Air Tag
Tired of wasting time every time you need to leave the house while the family scrambles to find backpacks, wallets, purses and the like?

Love a good read near the pool or ocean? We have you covered with the Kindle Paperwhite. With its IPX8 waterproofing and months long battery life, the latest Kindle Paperwhite makes relaxing near the water for hours on end possible. The sharp 300ppi display and adjustable backlighting means you can adjust it for in and outdoors.
Meta Quest 3
The Meta Quest 3 is arguably the best standalone VR headset you can buy for someone on the market right now. Quest 3 has better screen resolution, a stronger processor, more storage, and more memory than its predecessor. It’s pretty pricey as far as Christmas gifts go, but it is sure to be a favourite under the tree as it mixes reality while seamlessly merging virtual elements with physical surroundings.
Xbox LIVE Gift Card
The gamer in your life will be chuffed with an Xbox LIVE Gift Card which is their pass to a vast world of online entertainment. Redeemable through the Xbox LIVE Marketplace, they can order their favorite games and cool add-ons like new characters, levels and more. In addition to games, your recipient can instantly download HD movies and TV shows.
Ray-Ban Meta smart glasses
These sunglasses prove that, in fact, the future is here! The Ray-Ban Meta collection combines the iconic Wayfarer design with jaw-dropping technology. With these glasses, people can capture life's moments with an upgraded 12MP camera and five-mic system. They can even livestream to Instagram and Facebook, stream music and stay connected with hands-free calls.
Amazfit Band 7
Is a bit of self-care in the post-New Year’s plan for a friend or family member? You don’t have to break the bank to gift a fitness tracker. The budget-friendly Amazfit Band 7 can track several basic health metrics, including monitoring stress levels and sleep quality. It has 18 days of battery life with a typical usage, and up to 28 days with a battery saver mode.
Anker Soundcore Portable Wireless Bluetooth Speaker
Easy to pack into a beach bag or work tote, this speaker has superior sound quality wherever the day may lead. It advertises less than 1% total harmonic distortion even at the highest volumes. Its fantastic battery life means that the owner can blast their tunes for up to 24 hours on a single charge. Plus, the reasonable price point for a product of this quality makes it a clever present purchase.
Netvue Birdfy Feeder AI - 6000+ Species of Birds Recognition
Is someone on your list really into their feathered friends? This unique gift could be just what you are looking for to give them hours of enjoyment. The Birdfy Feeder works 24/7 to notify watchers and record when birds visit for a bit of a bite via their phone. With its 5dBi antenna, the camera supports a more stable 2.4ghz WiFi connection, so birdwatchers never have to worry about losing signal.

This device is small and lightweight and does not cause any discomfort.
Ring Video Doorbell 3
While it's been on the market for a while and is always a feature on our end of year tech gift lists, you can never go wrong with giving someone a Ring doorbell. Day or night, it can connect with Alexa to allow people to operate the camera and chat with visitors through the Echo Show, Fire TV or Ring app. With a stronger signal than previous models, it has faster alerts - so they'll always know what's happening at their front door.
