Techy Christmas gifts 2018

The Tech and gadget world is changing so fast, its hard to keep up with the latest wave of innovation in the shops these days. What to buy, where to by from and whats the best price, are all the questions I’m trawling through, in order to get my lot, some cool and original Christmas gifts.. With precious little time in my schedule this year, I’m having to get all the gifts before I leave the UK, so  I have resorted to Christmas shopping online.

Yes I know, it bothers me a little too- time is my conundrum. I support the high street a lot, but this time of year is crazy busy at HQ, so I have to get my gifts online. I thought I would compile a list of tech related gifts, while doing some research on a few things and show you whats kinda hot at the moment..

Now by no means am I trend setter myself, more of a trend destroyer. However whilst researching products for another store I would like to set up, I found some fitting products that are both in vogue and quite cool.. I’ve listed them below. Click on the image to see more of the item.


Techy Christmas Gifts 2018.


Portable scuba kit, to breathe underwater for about 10 minutes, used by sailors, scuba enthusiasts and snorkelers. Quite a random gift to start our selection with bit I thought it was quite innovative! The light-weight equipment will enable you to carry the kit conveniently anywhere. All the material is made up of stainless steel to prevent corrosion and oxidation.

Yes, yes I know, hardly a tech gift, but more of a nerdy gift, I loved learning to make cocktails and these days you can get a great set up very inexpensively! Quality stainless steel cocktail kit enables you to keep your barware tools in your minibar or kitchen display. This basic toolset is for professionals and beginners who want to prepare the mix of perfect drinks at home.

Wireless charging is something I have yet to dabble with but friends in the city are using it all the time, apparently its the next big thing. Certainly would, beat the 1500 iPhone cable I go through each year..

You need to make sure while placing your device in the centre of the surface. The lightweight, portable and ultra-thin charger is used for home and office.

I looked at SLR waterproof housings for this blog, but as I know so little I thought I would be walking a thin line with our Instagram community who would have way better ideas than myself! So I opted to show one of the more compact versions, of water proof housing. I use a Olympus Tough camera for snow sports, quite cool.

The tightness and high mechanical strength will enable the protection of your camera. Waterproof material protects the camera and provides a clear view of the control function and camera information. Easy-cleaning, anti-staining fingerprint and dust-proof.

I was purchased a UXE boom for my birthday which was amazing, this is a miller thing but a lot less expensive..

The sound quality on these is flawless, for a little  speaker.. its is both loud and reliable in wet environments. Either let the speaker remain in a side of the tub or stick it to the glass, tile or shower. You can answer approaching calls while in the shower leaving your telephone outside as well..


If your working on a laptop a lot of the time, your workstation should be set up right or you will have neck and back problems. This is a good step in the right direction..

The material of the stand desk dock is made of aluminium alloy. Other features include space saving and allowing the space of 380 mm under the stand. There is a silicon pad at the bottom of the stand to ensure your table is scratchless. The make of the stand is easy to install and use.
