the Luminous PR tech gadget Christmas list

Naughty or nice: the tech gadgets on our Christmas list this year

Dear Santa, we’ve been so good…

We’re definitely in the Christmas spirit here at Luminous PR. The decorations are up, the mulled wine is mulling, and our letters to Father Christmas are in the post. Unsurprisingly, we’ve added a few top tech gadgets to our ‘must-have’ Christmas list.

So just what we are hoping will be under the tree for us this festive season? Take a look at our list of our top gadget recommendations…

 

For the home

Over the past 12 months, the world seemed to wake up to the possibilities of voice assistant technology, so it’s no surprise that it’s been hailed one of the ‘must-have’ presents this year. Get weather reports, set alarms, make calls, play music and set reminders, and it is ready to turn your home into the smart home you desire. Plus, the sleek design of the new Amazon Echo makes it a stylish addition to any room.

Amazon Echo (2nd generation), £89.99. 

 

For the Apple fan

There was a lot of pomp and ceremony surrounding the much anticipated iPhone X release earlier this year. Now, we’re all keeping our fingers crossed that we will find our very own iPhone X in our stocking. We are poised and ready to use Face ID to unlock it, and the wireless charging is certainly a welcome feature. And who doesn’t want to use moving emojis to spread some Christmas cheer?! Yes please, Father Christmas…

Apple iPhone X, £999.00.

 

For the kids… big and small

If like us, you are ready to pack away those tired old board games and bring out the tech this Christmas, then ask for the Nintendo Switch. You can switch it up (pun intended) from normal TV-style gaming to handheld gaming, or flip to tabletop and multiplayer mode. Unwrap and gather everyone round for some serious fun.

Nintendo Switch, £334.99. 

 

For the traveller

The Luminous PR crew spent a lot of time on the road in 2017, and 2018 will be no different! That’s why we’re all asking for the Twelve South PlugBug World Charger. With five snap-on international plugs, regardless of which corner of the world we end up, we will be able to charge our MacBooks and other USB devices.

For the selfie king or queen

We all go snap-happy with our smartphones, but here at Luminous PR we are missing something – actual photos we can touch, feel, and pin up on the noticeboard! We’ve been extra well-behaved this year so we can get our hands on the Prynt Pocket Instant Photo Printer. It works with our favourite social media to print off photos in as little as 30 seconds.

Prynt Pocket Instant Photo Printer, £150.00.

 

The stocking filler

Essential tech needn’t be expensive and if you love music as much as we do, then you’ll be hoping Santa stuffs your stocking with a portable wireless speaker. Sharing our favourite tunes on the go is simply the best use of technology!

Jam Classic 2.0 Portable Wireless Speaker, £14.99.

 

Hopefully, Father Christmas has checked his list twice and is ready to share some tech treats with us. We hope you get everything on your list too!

Now the countdown is on to choose our top tech ‘must-haves’ for 2018…
