Apple offers this gifting season

With the holidays rapidly approaching it’s time to break open those wallets and ponder the best gifts for the people we hold dear.

Tech can make for some of the best surprises, and if anyone special in your friend or family group is an Apple fanatic, then you’re spoiled for choice. Of course, with so much choice comes the question of what could be the right fit.

On this page, we’ll break down some of the most popular and impressive Apple products you can gift this Christmas.

From accessories to laptops, you should get some idea of where to start. If you wanted to ask recipients some subtle questions about what they might like, that approach could work too…

Starting with the sound

Like buying a toy only to find it didn’t ship with batteries, getting the most from Apple products also involves employing the right accessories. Apple’s AirPods are a great example, held as some of the best in the Bluetooth audio business. No matter what model you settle on you’ll get great results, but there are some key differences which might matter more to some users.

If you’re after a smaller profile, then all of the smaller AirPod models are designed with the same great emphasis on ergonomics. If battery life is a major concern, then the larger on-ear AirPods Max devices – £499.00 can boast up to three times the operating life between charging.

Going mobile

Apple’s dominance in the smartphone market has been one of the most reliable stalwarts of the mobile space, and new iPhone models continue to hold pace. The model you should invest in again depends on the needs of the user, and how much they’ll rely on the features of each system.

Smartphone users who push their phones as far as possible could appreciate iPhone 15 Pro Max’s – £1199 as the preferred option. These are the biggest and the fastest, but some users might not bother with what they bring. For more regular users, standard iPhone 15 – £799 models could do just as well. These are still of the highest quality, so they’re still great gifts.

A Choice in Computers

Rounding out this list are Macbook systems and iMacs for those who need a capable work, creative, or general browsing device. There again a myriad of opportunities here, from smaller devices for those with limited space like MacBook Air 13-inch platforms – £999 to the cutting edge M3 equipped 16” MacBook Pro – £4099 for getting serious hardcore work done.

No matter what direction you end up heading in, it’s always a good idea to put in the research for the exact model first. People less involved in the tech world can lead you down a path of bad choices, and since Apple systems are premium machines, this can hurt. If somebody suggests iMacs for gaming, for example, they don’t really know what they’re talking about. You should also be sure to buy from one of the many places that offer 0% finance deals, to make your purchase even sweeter.
