Diwali is easily the most popular festival all across India and the festivities mean gifts. And with the advent of modern technology though lives have become easier, deciding gifts for your loved ones has become harder than ever.
So here we are making your life easier by providing you with options that could become tech gifts that people would not only cherish but find immensely useful as well.
And believe us when we say that these gifts are chosen by keeping both the sexes in mind which makes them viable for anyone. Though we must admit that these are not the best gifts that you could give children.
All the items mentioned in the following list is available online either on Amazon India or Flipkart.
Let’s begin with something that is needed by all and sundry in the modern day, power banks. These portable power sources for smartphones have become beyond essential for people because constant battery backup is a priority. A couple of the most reliable ones available would be Xiaomi 10,000 mAh power bank priced at Rs 1,399 and Sony 10,000 mAh power bank at Rs 2,885.
Let us put it this way, fitness bands are the rage these days and everyone wants to quantify how many workouts they are getting each day. With all the options out there both costly and cheap along with all the small time companies who are trying to make a quick buck. Deciding on the best product has become difficult.
Xiaomi Mi Band for Rs 1,299, Lenovo Fitness Band for Rs 1,699 and Fastrack Reflex for Rs 1,995 are the ones we can get behind and say that they work the best in their price range.
Who doesn’t like music and a decent pair of headphones make for one of the most convenient and useful gifts than anyone could give. Now, here again there are literally hundreds of options to choose from, and they all come with their pros and cons. And among those the ones we would suggest are Skullcandy Grind at Rs 4,999, Sennheiser HD 429 at Rs 4,990 and the Sony MDR-ZX33OBT for Rs 4,599.
Wireless mouse and keyboard
Everyone uses some form of a computer these days, be it a laptop or a PC, and nobody likes wires. This has somewhat become a universal truth. This is the age of wireless technology and not utilizing that potential seems a shame. Wireless keyboards and mouse combos do not cost a bomb like it once used to.
Logitech MK215 at Rs 1,350, Dell KM117 at Rs 1,398 and HP HP-200 at Rs 1120 are some of the better ones that we recommend.
Just like headphones, Bluetooth speakers are wireless music magic. These devices maximize portability and can be excellent gifts to a family because unlike headphones music from speakers are for everyone.
Bluetooth speakers have evolved to a point where they provide excellent music along with portability and waterproofing which make them perfect devices to travel with.
The ones we chose for you are the Amazon Echo Dot at Rs 3,149 which comes with Amazon’s AI assistant Alexa, JBL Flip 2 at Rs 7,999, and Sony SRS-XB10 at Rs 3,575 and SRS-XB20 at Rs 6,999.
In the age of connectivity, it seems silly not being able to connect your phones to the PC to share the content. Well, there are two ways that it can be achieved and one of them involves a smart TV that is capable of connecting to your phone. And the other being casting devices that seamlessly display content from your phone to TVs even if they are not smart ones.
Amazon Fire TV Stick priced at Rs 3,999 and the Google Chromecast 2 priced at Rs 3,399 are the most popular casting devices.
And even after all the options above you still, can’t make up your mind on what to get. There’s always the good old option of gifting case. Though even this process has seen some change and all major e-commerce websites and services have redeemable gift cards. You can either email these or send physical copies over to them in person.
