Stuck for what to ask for, what to buy or simply want to treat yourself? Check out this
awesome list of gadgets we’re asking for this Christmas. With something for everyone, these
gadgets will be sure to get some smiles.
1. APPLE AIRPODS PRO 2
If you glance up and find yourself hip-deep into Apple’s vast ecosystem then there’s not
really much point in resisting and attempting to find the same quality elsewhere. Apple’s
products are just too good to ignore, and its latest upgrade to the industry-changing AirPods
(the second generation of Pro headphones) might not shake foundations but they certainly
add some next-level features to an already complete pair of earbuds. With super-charged
ANC, touch-sensitive controls, spatial audio and a choice of tip sizes to fit every ear shape,
this might just be the best gadget of the year.
● Price: £249
2. PERFECTDRAFT PRO
Tired of asking your local barkeep to pull your pints? Thinking about practising at home in
time for the World Cup? Bring the beer kegs home with the PerfectDraft Pro dispenser,
which will automatically chill your chosen bevvy to the optimum temp for that crisp,
lip-smacking taste every time.
● Price: £258
3. HOTEL CHOCOLAT VELVETISER
There are good cups of hot chocolate and then there are perfect cups of hot chocolate, and
the latter can only be achieved with the power of Hotel Chocolat’s superb Velvetiser. Add a
healthy heap of chocolate shavings, and your chosen milk and then press the button towatch it all coalesce into the dream hot chocolate. There are dozens of flavours available,
including vegan options should you wish, you can thank us later.
● Price: £99
4. XBOX SERIES S
One of the most affordable consoles on the market right now, the Xbox Series S also has the
advantage of actually being available online. Unlike many of its siblings, the Series S doesn’t
sell out as quickly and still does everything any other Xbox would — just not in 4K. A bonus
here is that it dovetails perfectly with Microsoft’s Game Pass subscription service, which
already counts Deathloop, Halo Infinite and Forza Horizon 5 among its roster.
● Price: £245
5. POLAROID NOW INSTANT CAMERA I-TYPE
Document your festive merriment in permanent and charmingly shambolic fashion with the
Polaroid Now i-Type. Now with added autofocus – as well as the ability to shoot double
exposures – your snaps should turn out fine no matter how much mulled wine you’ve
managed to imbibe.
● Price: £99
6. META QUEST VR HEADSET
With no wires or cables to limit VR experience, kids can put on the headset, draw out their
play space and immerse themselves in virtual worlds. A built-in battery lets them explore
further for longer with a library of over 350 titles across gaming, social/multiplayer, fitness
● Price: £399.99
7. NINTENDO SWITCH LITE
Keep kids busy with their own Nintendo Switch. From Mario Kart to Animal Crossing, the
handheld games console has so many child-friendly options, but we guarantee you’ll want to
have a go yourself. The Lite is a more affordable, smaller version and comes in a wide range
