‘Tis the season for holiday parties, Christmas concerts, bell ringing, and… Christmas shopping! Confession: I haven’t even started Christmas shopping yet.
At Onsharp, we love all things techy, which is why we collaborated to come up with some must-haves for our own Christmas list. Read on to see how you can tech the halls this holiday season by exploring the wishlist of ideas below.
Whether it’s reading, listening to music, watching TV, or simply playing with mini skateboards at your desk (ahem, @OnsharpBen), here are some ideas you should consider incorporating into your Christmas list:
If you’re looking for a wireless headphone solution, these are said to offer a high-quality audio experience. With up to 6 hours of battery life, you should have plenty of time to listen to your favorite music, audiobook, and more.
As one of the most powerful streaming media sticks, the Fire TV Stick allows you to enjoy thousands of channels, apps, and Alexa skills like Netflix, Hulu, YouTube, and more. Plus, the Alexa Voice Remote lets you control what you watch. All you have to do is say something like “Launch Netflix”, and Netflix will turn on!
With up to 12 hours of battery life, the Kindle Fire allows for quick access to all kinds of entertainment. From music to news to Kindle eBooks and more, you’ll have everything at your fingertips with this tablet.
As another powerful streaming media stick, the Roku allows you to stream and enjoy multiple channels, movies, apps, and more on your TV. The Roku also has a voice remote, complete with TV power and volume.
If you’re looking for a new TV, consider the curved Samsung Curved 4K Ultra HD Smart LED TV. This TV boasts 4X more pixels than Full HD, vibrant and pure color from a realistic experience, and smooth action on fast-moving content.
If you work at a computer all day, these can be fun objects to have on your desk as you work. I know @OnsharpBen loves his, so if you need any tips for tricks, be sure to ask him!
I received this as a gift earlier this year, and I absolutely love it! It’s great to have this speaker around to listen to my jams when I’m getting ready in the morning, and it’s compact and easy to pack when I travel so I have something to use for music in my hotel room.
If you’re a gamer, this is probably already on your list (if you don’t already have it!). As the newest Xbox console, this has 40% more power than any console, offering more immersive gaming and entertainment.
Whether you’re looking for a smart home solution, want to track your fitness, or love photography, check out these gift ideas:
From making phone calls to playing music, asking questions, controlling smart home devices and more, the Amazon Echo is the perfect hands-off solution for your needs at home. All you have to do is use your voice to tell Alexa what to do!
If you want to go a step above the Amazon Echo, opt for the Amazon Echo Show. I personally have this, and I’ve had a wonderful experience with it so far. It offers the same features as the Echo, but it has a screen to show you things like on-screen lyrics, YouTube videos, flash briefings, shopping lists, and more. I also love using it for video calls, and the speakers are great for playing my favorite music.
If you’re into photography, our photog thinks this is a great item to have on your list (in fact, this is the one we use for our photography at Onsharp!). With built-in WiFi, the ability to shoot 6.5 fps at full resolution and more, this is sure to fit your photography needs.
There are a lot of options when it comes to fitness trackers, and some can be pretty spendy. Our Website Project Coordinator, @OnsharpMorgan, is drawn to the Moov Now because of its features and low price. Check it out and compare it to a few others here.
Want to live stream like a pro? Our CEO @joesandin loves using the Mevo Camera to do just that. This camera allows you to stream in HD, record in 4K, and stream over Wi-Fi, LTE, or Ethernet. With live editing features, it’s like having a personal video editing suite on your phone or tablet. Learn more about this camera and its incredible features here.
So there you have it! While we know the list of techy gifts is unending, we hope this gives you some ideas or sparks your interest to look into different versions of these items for your own Christmas list. Happy shopping!
