Apple's most advanced smartphone yet, the iPhone X (pronounced "ten") is an incredible smartphone. It's jam-packed with cutting-edge specs, charges wirelessly, includes a Super Retina HD display for unbelievable clarity and has a stunning glass back and front.
With FaceID, unlocking the X can be done simply by looking at it, the 12MP dual camera makes sure every shot you take offers amazing colour and detail and animojis (animated emojis) are sure to be plenty of fun. There's so much more to the iPhone X, and we're sure whoever you buy it for will be overjoyed with their new gift!
Google Pixel 2 XL
Living up to its predecessor, the Google Pixel 2 XL is a phablet with unbeatable specs. Not only does the latest release from Google have the highest rated camera on a smartphone ever, it offers something called Google Lens - an innovative extension of Google Assistant that can identify any objects or buildings you point the Pixel 2 XL's lens at!
There's a great battery on board, fantastic audio and endless storage for photos. The crystal clear 6-inch screen will be perfect if the lucky receiver loves to play games or watch plenty of videos on their smartphone too!
Not sure if a phablet is the best way to go? You could always pick up the smaller, yet equally as impressive, Google Pixel 2.
Samsung Galaxy Note 8
It's not all about Google and Apple - if you have Samsung fan in the family, look no further than the Samsung Galaxy Note 8. Sleek, powerful and smart, it’s a brilliant smartphone. The S-Pen slots into the device seamlessly, a fingerprint scanner is located on the back while an iris scanner sits on the front and the dual camera comes in at 12MP - perfect for professional looking pictures!
Give the gift of Alexa, and buy someone an Amazon Echo this Christmas. Amazon's personal assistant can play music, make calls, let you know the outcome of a sports game, turn on smart TVs, order you a taxi and so much more! Its affordable too, and a present that will be used year-round.
Sony WH-1000XM2 wireless headphones
Wireless headphones are the next big thing, and Sony's WH-100XM2 are often crowned the best on the market by tech experts. With noise cancelling qualities and amazing audio, any music fan will love them!
