Christmas gift ideas for Apple lovers

Christmas is just around the corner, and if you’re looking for some gift inspiration, you’ve come to the right place. Now more than ever, technology is an essential part of modern life – indeed, it’s hard to imagine a day without your AirPods and iPhone. Below, we’ve put together some gift ideas to help you make your loved ones smile…

Partner-friendly: The new iPhone

If you’re looking for a way to say thank you to your partner, why not treat them to a new iPhone 14? Apple has released four new models this year: an iPhone 14, a larger iPhone 14 Plus, and redesigned iPhone 14 Pro and iPhone 14 Pro Max models sporting the new Dynamic Island. It’s not a cheap gift, but it’s sure to impress them!

Budget-friendly: AirTags

If you’re looking for a cheaper Apple gift, consider AirTags. These small tracking devices link to your iPhone and allow you to track anything from your car keys to your backpack – if they were to be lost or stolen, Apple uses an advanced mesh network system to track down your item, even if it’s nowhere near your iPhone. You can get a pack of four for $99; the perfect stocking filler. Another low-cost item to consider is the HomePod mini, which was refreshed with new color options earlier this year. Combining the the power of Siri with the beauty of a speaker, the device is a must-have in every home, and its price tag is definitely a bonus. 

Family-friendly: Apple TV

With the introduction of incredible shows on Apple TV+ and family-friendly games on Apple Arcade, many are taking advantage of Apple TV boxes for the living room. The company now offers the Apple TV HD and Apple TV 4K, both of which come with a year of Apple TV+ for free. Apple TV 4K is designed for the whole family, helping you watch films and programs in amazing 4K HDR and with Dolby Atmos sound. Apple’s 4K offering delivers four times more pixels than standard HD, with three-dimensional audio that sends sound around and above you with pinpoint precision. Whether you’re binge-watching The Morning Show, listening to The Oprah Conversation, or having a movie night with Greyhound, Apple TV is the ultimate family-friendly gift that you’ll enjoy and make use of for years to come.

Student-friendly: MacBook Pro

The iMac and MacBook Pro are also great choices for premium gifts this year, with both models receiving significant updates thanks to the M1 chip range – and soon, the M2 range! The iMac is Apple’s new entry-level model sporting new colorful designs, whilst the M1 Pro and M1 Max chips in the new 14-inch and 16-inch MacBook Pro range takes computing to new heights. Plus, there are amazing deals to be had on the MacBook Air and Mac mini – shop around to find an offer if you’re considering a new PC for your partner or child.
