Yup, it’s that time of year again—with the holiday shopping season just around the corner, Apple’s 2016 Holiday Gift Guide recommends various gift ideas ranging from the iPhone 7, iPad Pro, Apple Pencil and Apple Watch to the fourth-generation Apple TV, 12-inch MacBook and gift cards.
The guide doesn’t stop there as Apple’s recommendations include a bunch of first and third-party accessories for the iPhone, iPad, Apple Watch and Mac, as well as other popular items such as app-enabled toys, photography and music accessories and more.
If you’re anything like me, coming up with gift ideas for your loved ones can be a difficult task that happens to also be time consuming. That’s why every year, iDB Editors come up with a list of what they think would make great gifts for the techies and non-techies alike in your life, hoping it will help you find something for that special person.
This year, I have tried to stay on a budget, and although there are a couple big ticket items in my list, most of them are very affordable. After all, it isn’t the size or price of the gift that matters, but the size of the heart that gives it.
Is it that time of year again? Gosh, time surely flies, doesn’t it? And what an action-packed year it has been in terms of exciting Apple product releases and upgrades, new-category product launches, interesting new accessories, novel new apps and games and what not.
I believe in smart holiday shopping that doesn’t force you to break the bank just to purchase cool gifts that your friends and family will actually love, not pass along like a hot potato. So without further ado, I present you my personal holiday gift guide.
‘Tis the season for warm fires, cold days, peppermint mochas, fruitcakes, shopping, and, of course, iDB’s holiday gift guide! Another year has passed, more tech and accessories have been released, and I’m more excited than ever to show you what I’ve been collecting this year.
One of my favorite things about the holidays is gift-hunting. Whether I’m looking for something to add to my own wish list, or shopping for others, I love trying to track down the perfect present. So as you can imagine, I enjoy taking part in iDB’s annual Holiday Gift Guide.
My picks this year consist of both fun and practical gift ideas, that have proven to be well-made and well-reviewed. As you might have guessed, many of the suggestions are tech-related, but I did make sure to include a few non-tech ideas for those that prefer non-gadget gifts.
