Give the perfect gift this Christmas

3rd November 2017

Sure, Christmas is a time for good food and goodwill. But it’s also a time for sheer panic and chaos – when you realise the big day is closer than you thought, and you haven’t even started buying presents yet. And while last-minute-present-buying always gets the job done, it’s impossible to find that perfect gift when it’s 3pm on Christmas Eve, and the shops shut in two hours!

Well, here at EE, we’ve got everything you need to inject some techie goodness into the festive season. And best of all, you won’t even have to face the high street crowds, as we’ll deliver everything straight to your front door.

So here’s our pick of awesome, techie gifts to help make your Christmas shopping an absolute cinch this year!

Arcade duel battle drones
Much more fun than your usual remote-controlled crafts, these dual battle drones have built-in infrared lasers – making them more futuristic (and downright cool) than ever before. Two hits and your drone will flip. Take four and it’ll fall out of the sky, with zero damage, so you can start all over again. So if you hear a humming sound coming from over the rooftops this Christmas, we’re sorry to say it’s probably not Santa. It’s more likely the noise of battle drones looping and weaving as they fight till they drop.

Beats EP on-ear headphones
These eye-catching headphones come with a stamp of approval from Dr Dre himself, making them the perfect present for any music lovers in your life. Choose from Black, White, Flash Blue or Siren Red – and rest assured that behind that sleek design, there’s some seriously clever tech. From the moment you put them on, your favourite tunes will sound brighter, clearer and crisper than ever before. And for maximum brownie points, gift a pair of Beats cans with a subscription to Apple Music. With over 40 million songs at their fingertips, though, you may struggle to get a word out of them over Christmas dinner.

Just set your iPhone 8, iPhone 8 Plus or iPhone X down on this sleek piece of kit and it’ll instantly start charging on contact. Finished with a TPU rubberised coating to make sure your smartphone stays shiny and scratch-free, the Mophie Wireless Charging Base takes around half the time to charge devices than any other wireless chargers out there.

Google Daydream View headset
Wrap this piece of mind-blowing tech up in glittery paper and you’re certain to make somebody’s Christmas. Google’s Daydream View VR headset gives you the kind of fully-immersive virtual reality experiences that were previously only available at five times the price. Just slot your smartphone into the front pocket and take a swim with orca whales, without even changing into your trunks. Daydream View will also double up as your own private cinema – a one-person multiplex where you’ll always get the best seat in the house. And we haven’t even started on all the epic gaming options!

Crosley Bermuda Dansette turntable
Dig out those old LPs and 45s from the loft and get reacquainted with the rich, soothing sounds you can only get from good ol’ vinyl. This deliciously retro turntable recalls the classic Dansettes that once took pride of place in any self-respecting teenager’s bedroom in the ‘50s and ‘60s. And don’t fret if you’re not ready to ditch your music streaming subscription just yet: once you’ve exhausted your record collection, you can plug in your smartphone and stream music through the Crosley’s built-in stereo speaker. It really is the best of both worlds.

Speck iGuy iPad case
How about welcoming someone new to the family this Christmas? iPad covers don’t come more lovable than Speck’s brilliantly quirky iGuy. With two adorable, squidgy arms to grab onto and a pair of stout legs to make your device stand upright, this is tablet protection that’s just perfect for kids. But don’t be fooled by iGuy’s soft, squelchy body – he’s made from seriously tough EVA foam that’s been put through all kinds of eye-watering tests before the poor chap left the factory. So if there’s space at home for one more family member, iGuy is guaranteed to raise a smile – and remain super-useful all year round.

Even better, though, this absolute superhero of a gadget can provide at least three full emergency charges, so you’ll never get caught out if you need to call the Daily Planet newsdesk. Just perfect for the tech-savvy DC comics fan in your life.
