Tech gifts for Christmas are always a sure bet, but make sure you’re buying the best technology gifts of 2013 — and not ones that will be returned later.
Take a look at some tech gifts that will keep anyone on your list happy.
Top Tech Gifts #1: The Apple iPad Mini with Retina Display
Considering the Apple iPad Air? It’s nice if you can’t lift one pound. But the Apple iPad Mini is a great buy and one of the best tech gifts out there.
The iPad Mini packs a wallop with excellent high-resolution display that you literally cannot distinguish for the Air, a far faster A7 processor, and adds on improved Wi-Fi and LTE connectivity. Battery life is even better than in last year’s iPad Mini.
The pricetag is a bit rough, beginning at $399 and up, but it’s one of the coolest tech gifts for the holidays.
Top Tech Gifts #2: Sony PlayStation 4
The Sony PlayStation 4 tops rival Microsoft (MSFT) Xbox One in price and in digital-only offering, making it one of the top tech gifts.
Plus, the top-rate graphics, simple yet smart controller, and easier interface means this PlayStation 4 is a best bet. It’s also $100 cheaper than the Xbox One. Give one of the best tech gifts … and one that will keep your kids or friends out of your hair — and glued to their screens for hours.
Runs for about $650 on Amazon (AMZN).
Top Tech Gifts #2: FitBit Force
Looking for the perfect tech gifts for your health-conscience friends or loved ones? Try the FitBit Force, which keeps track of your steps, sleep, and calorie intake.
Its lightweight, comfortable design is simple, and also works as a watch. It syncs wirelessly over Bluetooth, has a simple menu to review your fitness data. With so many cool features to review, you may have to remind yourself to actually exercise.
Still, it’s one of the coolest tech gifts you can give.
