Top 10 Gadget Christmas Gifts for Him
As Christmas fast approaches (we’d tell you how many shopping days are left, but we don’t want to terrify you) it’s time to think about what to get the man in your life. Forget the old reliable standby of a tie, underwear or socks – what your husband/boyfriend/son/dad/brother/uncle/secret lover really wants (and needs) is the latest gadget so that he can be just like everybody else. And we’re here to help with 10 great tech ideas …[/nextpage] [nextpage title=”Next”]
A PlayStation 4 or Xbox One
He’s probably already got a PS3 or an Xbox 360, but now is the time to upgrade to one of the next-gen machines. Both consoles have been out for just over a year, and there are plenty off terrific games for both. And as a bonus, it looks like there might be a price war looming – the PS4 recently fell below £300 for the first time.
iPad Air 2
There are loads of tablets around, from many different makers, but none is quite as good as Apple’s iPad, is it? And now we have the shiny new version, the iPad Air 2, to drool over. It’s ultra-thin, ultra-light, runs twice as fast as the previous model, features an anti-reflective coating with improved retina display and has a 10-hour battery life. What’s not to like?.
Oh, and don’t forget that there is also the new iPhone 6. He’d probably like one of those, too.[/nextpage] [nextpage title=”Next”]
RAVPower RP-PB22 Deluxe Portable Charger
One of these days, battery technology will catch up with the times and we’ll have iPhones that can run for a week or two without the need for recharging.

It’s compatible with Android, Apple and other devices, and has charge speeds of up to four amps with a 13000mAh capacity. Bonus: you can also use it as a torch.[/nextpage] [nextpage title=”Next”]

It’s the perfect wearable for kicking off that post-Christmas fitness regime. Nike’s Second Edition (SE) FuelBand will track your daily activity and display it as time, steps, calories burned, and “fuel”, and will also allow you to isolate and name special activities. It wirelessly syncs over Bluetooth, and this updated model has a better battery life that its predecessor. Just keep in mind that this sporty-looking device is not the ideal gift for the couch potato in your life.[/nextpage] [nextpage title=”Next”]
Popup Hotdog Toaster

Fun, fast and convenient, the Popup Hot Dog Toaster from Nostalgia Electronics will hold two regular-sized hot dogs and two hot dog buns at one time. The toaster features adjustable heat settings, so you can achieve perfect hot dogs every time.

Tetris Stackable LED Desk Lamp

So what better way to light up a room than with this seven-piece stackable, interlocking Tetris lamp? Simply connect one of the bricks to the mains power and then, as each new brick is placed in position, they will light up.[/nextpage] [nextpage title=”Next”]
Samsung Curved TV
Remember how, back in the good old days of last century, all TV sets had curved screens? (They were also big and heavy and boxy, with cathode ray tubes at their core, but that’s another story.) Now the flatscreens we’ve got used to for the past decade or so are starting to go back to the curve – although concave this time, rather than the convex screeens of old. The jury is still out on whether the curved screen makes a lot of difference – many critics say that it doesn’t, while others say the curve adds a sleek, immersive dimension that’s missing on flat TVs. So, why not buy your man one and let him judge for himself?[/nextpage] [nextpage title=”Next”]
There are a lot of e-readers around, but none come better than the Amazon Kindle. There are several models to choose from – including the Touch, the Paperwhite, the Fire and the Voyage The best thing about the Kindle, of course, is the easy-to-read paper-like display. It’s also very easy to buy and wirelessly download books to the device – perhaps a little too easy.[/nextpage] [nextpage title=”Next”]
