The shopping season is happening NOW and some of the best gifts that you can give are electronics. Most people love getting something in this category and you can find such a wide range of items – including accessories.
You can find something for everyone on your shopping list all at the same time. Electronics are the category of gift that is popular, often because of the technological advances made each and every year – so people want the latest, greatest gadget.
TVs and accessories are always a big hit. You’ll find something that will fit both large and small budgets. One of the popular kinds of televisions is the 4K Ultras like the Sony XBR55A1E 55-Inch 4K Ultra HD.
This makes a great gift for those you’re shopping for who enjoy watching sports or movies. This is an OLED TV and that stands for Organic Light-Emitting Diode. The difference between this kind of television and an LED one is that the OLED uses organic molecules.
The pixels in the TV are self-illuminating rather than like LCD ones which use LED for the backlight. Both ULTRA and OLED TVs are the hottest items among televisions and at the top of peoples’ wish list and with the Sony, you get both that in one.
The popularity stems from the fact that it gives one of the best picture images you can buy. But LED TVs are still popular, especially if they’re a smart TV like the TCL 55P607 55-Inch 4K Ultra HD Roku Smart LED TV.
For those on your list who already have a decent television, you’ll want to look at accessories. Or you’ll want to bundle these with the purchase of a newer TV. Projectors are one of the hottest selling items in electronics.
You can find gaming projectors, ones for use with home theaters, portable ones, some for business or education, and more. Projectors can be used by people who like to share photos or for use playing games, for people who enjoy showing films and more.
You can give these projectors as gifts to teachers, to gamers, for business colleagues or for family and friends. One of the hottest right now is the iCODIS G1 Mini Projector, which is so small it can fit in your pocket and it works with your smartphone.
Of course whatever kind of projector you get, you’ll want to get a screen to use and the most popular ones are those that you use outdoors like the VIVO 100″ Portable Indoor Outdoor Projector Screen or the Foldable Portable Outdoor Front Movie Screen by Vamvo.
Home Audio and Theater
A hot category in electronics is home audio and theater. These gadgets have changed the way the way families get their entertainment. Now, you can stream music and entertainment faster than ever and for a much lower price than when home theaters first hit the market.
Home audio is hot because it can make listeners feel like they’re in the middle of the concert or in the center of the scene. Many of the home audio and theater systems that you can get will have a couple of different choices when it comes to speakers.
You can get them with surround sound or with the front speakers. The difference is found in a number of speakers that you get as well as sound quality. Surround sound is more like the theater speaker experience than front speakers are.
You can get both audio and theater systems bundled or buy them as separate pieces and build a good theater or sound system over time. Topping many wish lists this year is the AXESS Bluetooth Mini System 2.1-Channel Home Theater Speaker System.
This is the perfect gift for any of the music lovers that you know who like to listen to radio stations and enjoy wireless streaming. What people like about this system is that you can use it with the Bluetooth to control the system.
You can enrich the home theater and audio experience by adding one of the many sound bars. These can have an optical or analog connection and they can also have a wireless subwoofer.
Cameras and Accessories
With cameras and accessories, you’ll find an assortment of cameras from digital to video cameras to spy cameras, security cameras and even the ones that will give you Instax film with the instant cameras like the Polaroids, which were so popular back in the 70s and again today.
The point and shoot cameras are easy for kids to use. You can get mirrorless cameras which is a lighter camera that can give you a better contrast and focus. You’ll find an assortment of gift ideas here – from cameras to tripods to shotgun mics and even underwater cameras and gear.
You don’t get features like quality zoom lens in anything but top of the line cameras like the Canon EOS Rebel T6 Digital SLR Camera. When you’re looking at digital cameras, you can find ones like rechargeable HDs or kits.
You can also find MP digitals or SLR cameras. Each camera will vary in features like the wide range of zoom they’ll offer. Cameras and the related accessories make the perfect gifts for almost anyone.
They love the idea of being able to play and shoot. Look for ones that say photography drones to match the camera. They also like the sports and action cameras. If you’re planning to give a camera as a gift for someone who loves photography or they’d like to pursue it as a serious endeavor, you really do need to go top of the line and look for something in the Nikon brand that’s suggested by most professionals.
But keep in mind that these FX series cameras aren’t exactly budget friendly for some people – and many of them have hefty price tags of $1,000 to $3,000 or more.
Still, that doesn’t mean that you can’t find one that’s suitable for the Nikon COOLPIX L340 Digital Camera with 28x Zoom & Full HD Video and best of all, it comes with a nice accessory kit.
Laptops and PCs
Laptops and PCs are high on everyone’s want-list because they can be used for work, school, play, gaming, video making and an endless list of ideas. You can find laptops that are a lower cost that make great first gadgets for younger kids.
These can perform simple all the way up to complex commands. When it comes to technology, you’ll find that there’s a good portion of the demographic that prefer laptops over desktops.
Cell Phones and Accessories
You want to get an unlocked phone if possible. If you get one that’s locked, it means that it can only be used with a certain carrier. So if you buy it for someone and they can’t use it with their carrier, then they’ll either have to switch cell phone providers or return the gift.
Some of the new iPhones on the market include the iPhone 8, the 7S and the 7S Plus. The iPhone 6, as well as the iPhone 6 Plus, are still pretty popular today.
The Samsung Galaxy S8 Unlocked 64GB continues to be a top seller for its high customer approval thanks to its performance. With cell phones, there are plenty of accessories to go along with them.
Some of the top accessories to get someone who obtains a cell phone include Otterbox phone cases with shattered glass covers.
These are some of the top electronic gift ideas to consider getting for those on your list.
