But finding out all about the newest products is especially welcome at Christmas, when fresh ideas are in high demand. Whether you’re looking for gifts for loved ones or fancy gifting a new gadget to yourself, there’s plenty of cool tech around this season of goodwill.
To help you choose which gadgets to place under your Christmas tree, here’s our round-up of the best Christmas gadget gifts for 2022.
Phillips smart sleep wake up light
The dark mornings of winter are a struggle for many of us, and there’s nothing worse than being jolted awake by harsh alarms when it isn’t even light outside yet. But with a sunrise alarm clock you can wake up to gentle bird sounds or ocean waves, while the lamp mimics a sunrise, giving you a slower and more peaceful start to the day. You can set the lamp to begin a gentle sunrise 30 minutes before you need to get going, to give you time to arise naturally. This clever lamp can also help you wind down in the evening with a gentle sunset.
Know someone who loses their keys a lot or can never find their phone? The Tile Mate is an inexpensive gadget that you can attach to anything and it will always locate that thing for you, no matter where you’ve put it. You can even attach it to your dog’s collar so you’ll always know where your pooch is. The app is free to download onto your phone, and works with both iOS and Android phones.
Heated foot massager
Perfect for when you staying home on those cold winter evenings, this heated foot massager is fur-lined and feels just like a warm pair of slippers, except it can also give a great massage. You can enjoy the gentle vibrations that soothe tired feet, and add the heat option too, or if it’s just warmth you want you can select to have heat alone. It’s the perfect gift for anyone who likes a pampering…or even better, it’s the ideal gift to give yourself this Christmas!
Know someone who’s always forgetting to drink their cuppa while it’s freshly brewed? If so, the Ember Cup is a thoughtful Christmas gift. Its charging coaster keeps your drinks hot for up to an hour and a half, so that tepid brews will be a thing of the past. But the Ember Cup has another layer of cleverness. This is a smart mug, and you can set it to the exact temperature that you like your tea or coffee. No more waiting for it to cool down and no more having to reheat it. Available in black or copper, it looks rather snazzy too!
If you’re looking to splash out and treat that special person in your life who likes cycling, or who fancies getting into it with minimal effort, the Cruzaa E-Bike is a lightweight bike that’s entirely electric. It takes three to four hours to charge the bike from 0% and after that you get 50-60kms riding time. Thanks to the bike’s 240W motor, riding uphill is no problem and long journeys are so much easier. The e-bike has integrated Bluetooth speakers, so you can listen to a podcast or your latest playlist while you enjoy your ride and the smart digital LCD display will keep you up to date with where you are and your route, making biking easier than ever.
GoPro Hero 10
For photos and video on the go, this new GoPro Hero 10 captures high res footage that looks professional and smooth, no matter what you’re getting up to. If you have someone in your life who loves adventure and extreme sports, this nifty gadget is almost unbreakable and can be strapped to bikes, skis, snowboards and even surfboards. The GP2 processor delivers an improved performance to previous models and gives you stabilisation you might not have thought was possible. Waterproof to 10m and with night vision and timelapse recording, there’s nothing the GoPro Hero 10 can’t photograph and film expertly.
