Christmas gadget ticklist

18th December 2014

Here's your list of the best gadget Christmas presents this year!

iPhone 6

iPhone 6

Apple's brand new flag-ship made a sell-out debut and a new design direction this autumn, it has to be top-of-the-stocking for any Apple fan this Christmas

Nokia Lumia 630

Nokia Lumia 630

One of the last Nokia branded Lumia phones, this affordable Windows Phone is a great alternative to Apple and Android featuring a clean and easy-to-use interface. A perfect first phone for younger children.

Moto G 4G

Moto G 4G

Motorola are yet to be beaten at the budget end of the Android market and with the latest version of the Moto G featuring 4G capabilities, a sleek design and a large screen, this probably isn't about to change.

Samsung Galaxy Alpha

Samsung Galaxy Alpha

Just another Samsung phone I hear you say? No - the Alpha is something a bit different from Samsung. With a premium feel, great camera and (what seams to be) good build quality, this could be Samsung's best phone design ever.

Amazon Fire Phone

Amazon Fire Phone

Although it hasn't been the success Amazon may have hoped, it's (now) low price point and off-the-wall features make this phone a must have for anyone who wants to stand out from the crowd.

LG G3

LG G3

Have LG made a come back with it's 'G' range of phones? Probably. I remember the days where LG phones were positively avoided due to their poor build quality and durability but this is certainly a premium phone with premium features and a beautiful screen. Stylish too!

Sony Experia Z2

Sony Z2

Sony's flagship is the latest in it's Android line up, perhaps not as well designed as other flagships on the market but solid features and build quality as well as all the usual Sony additions makes this a good contender for your stocking.

Tablets

Hudl 2

Tesco Hudl 2

The second version of the best selling Tesco tablet is a lot better than the first and Tesco have really upped the style of their second venture into the tablet market. A great one for children and those with Clubcard points to spare (Tesco offer huge discounts when paying with Clubcard points).

iPad Air 2

iPad Air 2

The new iPad did not disappoint when it debuted a couple of months ago and with a new gold styling, if you fancy an iPad upgrade, this is the one to get.

Microsoft Surface Pro 3

Microsoft surface pro 3

This is the ultimate Windows machine for the mobile worker. The touchscreen works really well and the whole design has a really premium feel to it. Will it fit in your stocking though? Probably not...

Smartwatches

Pebble Steel

Pebble Steel Smartwatch

The Pebble was one of the first smartwatches to be released and features an e-ink screen which saves a lot of battery life. It has a really retro feel to it and the new 'steel' version is no exception. It's also one of the only smartwatches to feature iOS compatibility.

Cognito Classic Smartwatch

Cognito Classic Smartwatch

The cognito takes smartwatches right back to the bassics. A classic design and simple notifications makes this the perfect gift for someone who wants to know who's calling them and when they have a text message without taking their phone from their bag.

Moto 360

Moto 360 Smartwatch

One of the best designed Smartwatches on the market, the Moto 360 has been a big hit and this latest gold brushed edition makes it even better.

Others

iMac with Retina 5K display

Retina 5K iMac

This beautifully thin new iMac is really stunning. I'd suggest visiting an Apple shop just to look at it. However, your wallet will be taking a beating if you buy this as a stocking filler.

Flexson VinylPlay Digital Turntable

Digital Record Player

This retro gadget brings playing records into the 21st century. It's best feature is the ability to beam your music around the house using systems like Sonos.
