Gift giving is a major part of the festive season, however choosing the gifts is often the part a lot of people struggle with. For the fourth day of Blogmas, I decided to come up with a Gift Guide covering a bunch of different personalities! I hope you find this guide useful – these gifts are not gender-exclusive because stereotypically ‘male’ gifts might be appealing to females and vice versa. Here’s part one of my gift guide!
The Tech Fan
Stealth VR Headset – £29.99
VR is the future of gaming, and this headset allows you to try out the immersive technology without spending crazy amounts of money. This headset works with most smartphones; you just slide your phone into the compartment and you can play a variety of VR games and watch 3D movies! This would make an awesome gift for any tech lover – I found this one at Argos.
Amazon Echo – £149.99
This is like Siri on a whole other level – it connects you to Alexa for music, news, weather and more. It also has 360° audio to play music from Spotify, Amazon Music and TuneIn, as well as being able to answer your questions, similar to Siri. This is a little pricey, but it would definitely make an awesome gift – get it here.
