Christmas 2015: Gift Guides and Best ofs

Aside from the gift guides than can inspire you we’ve also put together the very best products in tech in their respective categories.

These ‘Best of’ lists pull together the top-notch products from some of the most popular Christmas categories in a clear and concise way. We’ve done all the legwork for you.

The rule of thumb is that if it’s not on the list, it’s not the best at that price point.

TV and Audio

Best Headphones: There are plenty of overpriced, poor quality headphones out there. This is a list of the best ranging from £40 to more than £500.

Best Portable Speakers: Bluetooth wireless speakers are a great gift but there are so many to choose from. The ones in this list are sure to bring a smile.

Best TVs: If you’re feeling flush with cash then getting a brand new 4K TV is a great Christmas gift for the whole family.

Best Value TVs: You don’t have to spend a bomb, though. This is a list of great TVs at an affordable price.

Best Running Headphones: Headphones for running are totally different from the ones you might use on a plane or in your house. These are perfect for the fitness fanatic.


Best Fitness Trackers: Alternatively fitness trackers are a way to help people get into shape or give that extra push for competitive types. TrustedReviews experts have reviewed the lot and picked the best.

Best Smartwatch: The Apple Watch may be the most popular smartwatch out there but there are a lot more to choose from, particularly if you’re an Android user.

Computing and Mobile

Best Tablet: Always a Christmas favourite, tablets come in many forms and prices.

Best Tablet for Kids: If you really don’t want your five year old cracking your iPad Air 2‘s screen then there are plenty of great, and reasonably cheap, tablets that are perfect for them.

Best Laptop: With Windows 10 released recently there’s been a wealth of new laptops. They don’t all cost a fortune, though. Our list ranges from £200 to over £1000.

Best Smartphone: If you want to become a favourite auntie or uncle this Christmas then a brand new high-end phone will do the job.

Best Cheap Mobile Phones: Alternatively if you want to be second favourite you can opt for one of these phones that cost less than £200, but are still great.


Best Games: Buying a game for Christmas can be tricky. Generally it’s best to go for a game someone has asked for, but if you’re not sure then the games on this list are great. Make sure you buy the right format. Getting a PS4 copy of the Witcher 3 will not go down well if that person owns an Xbox One.

Best Gaming Headset: Immersion is an important part of gaming. So is not having to hear every explosion, gunshot or coin collected when someone else is playing. Gamers love a good headset and we’ve got one’s for PC, Xbox One and PS4.

Best Graphics Card
: PC gamers love to upgrade their desktop PCs and a graphics card is one of the best ways of doing it. Ranging from £100 to £800 there’s something for every budget this Christmas.

Best Bread Makers
: Mmmm the smell of freshly baked bread, nothing beats it. These bread makers can make cakes and jams too.

And finally…

Best Vacuum Cleaner: Are you passive aggressive? Do you like Christmas Day to be fraught with tension and thinly veiled contempt? Then buy your loved one a vacuum cleaner from our list and be safe in the knowledge that, at least, you’ll be getting them a great one.
