Even when it comes to choosing gifts for loved ones and friends, technological gadgets are one of the most common types of present to wrap up this Christmas.
This also means that buying presents has become a little more difficult, not due to the limited options, but rather because of the sheer amount of choice you are now presented with when choosing that perfect present. From iPads to headphones, to Amazon Kindles – there’s a gadget out there for almost every type of tech lover.
This year the average British adult will spend £512.85 on gifts over the festive Christmas period, meaning that the UK as a whole will be spending £29.6 billion on presents for their family and friends. With tech gifts being a high priority on many people’s Christmas lists, it can be assumed that a lot will be spent on gadgets this Christmas.
With many of us wanting to make the most of our money, whilst still buying the perfect present, it’s worth looking into alternatives to the usual high street stores, such as buying second hand tech, as well as scouting for the best deals online. With 13% of British adults intending to cut their Christmas spending this year, and two in five intending to set a budget or limit on what they spend, alternative methods can sometimes help you make the most of a smaller budget.
Some of us may have completed much of our Christmas shopping ahead of December, whilst also making the most of Black Friday and Cyber Monday deals, but many of us still leave things till the last minute. However, all is not lost - there’s still time to bag yourself a bargain!
It’s also important not to impulse buy when it comes to your tech – even this close to Christmas. A better deal might be a click away, and save you hundreds of pounds if you stop, do some research and think smart about your buying choices.

Plus, you’ll also enjoy a number of money-saving tips to help you buy that tech-related gift for the best price possible.
Some stand out tips from the guide are:
- Research into second-hand tech - You would be surprised the amount of people selling nearly new tech that they no longer want. For whatever reason they’re selling, it’s a win for you!
