The holidays are a great time to buy tech gifts for friends and family, whether you’re getting someone the latest smartphone or helping them upgrade their television set. These days, it’s possible to buy tech gifts at almost any price point, from small stocking stuffers all the way up to the hottest toys on the market that run thousands of dollars. If you need some guidance in choosing your tech gifts this year, check out our list of the best tech gifts of 2022 below!
Amazon Echo Dot
This is the smallest and cheapest of Amazon’s Echo devices, but that doesn’t mean it is any less impressive. For just $50, you can ask Alexa questions, play music, make shopping lists and more–anything you need help with. With a range of more than 100 feet away from your home wifi connection and the ability to work in noisy environments or large spaces, this one small device can make your day much easier.
Acer Chromebook R13
Featuring a 360° hinge and two-in-one design, the Acer Chromebook R13 is a versatile laptop that can function as either a touchscreen laptop or tablet with stylus.
Powerful performance, big screen versatility and built-in security features make the Acer Chromebook R13 one of the best tech gifts for this holiday season.
It looks just like a regular compact Bluetooth speaker and you can even give it a voice name that isn’t OK Google. It was developed to respond to your voice (i.e., turn off the lights in the living room, or find a particular Beatles song) and is packed with Google Assistant, meaning you have access to all sorts of knowledge without having to lift a finger. For some reason though, I keep mine out on my kitchen counter instead of my nightstand!
