Christmas is rapidly approaching and when it comes to presents for your technology-loving friends and family, socks just aren’t going to cut it. To help you out, we’ve put together a guide to the best tech-related Christmas presents money can buy. Whether you have RM30 or RM300,000 to spend, you should be able to find something for that special someone, this holiday season.
If you’re on a budget….or you’re not all that fond of the person you are buying a gift for.
JBL Go Portable Bluetooth Speaker/Water-resistant Bluetooth Hand Free Shower Speaker
If you’re buying for a music lover and want the recipient of your gift to share their music with you, the JBL Go portable Bluetooth speaker is now retailing for around RM71, and provides pretty decent sound and portability for the price.
Alternatively, you are getting a gift or someone who likes to spend a little too much time in the shower, singing along with their favourite tunes, a water resistant hands-free shower speaker might be a better fit at only RM31. If you have trouble getting them out of the shower it’ll also come in handy as it also allows them to take calls!

Cheerson CX10 Mini Quadcopter
Why not give the gift of flight this Christmas? The Cheerson CX10 Mini Quadcopter may not be the biggest or the best drone on the market but for RM66-RM89 it’s the perfect starter gift for the budding drone enthusiast. The CX10 was even voted “The Best Drone Desk Toy” by Gizmodo in a recent roundup of all the best indoor drones on the market.

Logitech Silent Mice
Whether it’s for gaming or for work, if you regularly have to share space with someone whose computer time generates a frustrating level of noisy clicking and scrolling, a “silent mouse” from Logitech might be the best gift idea for both of you this Christmas.
Coming in two flavours, the more compact, travel worthy Logitech M221 & and the slightly bulkier, more ergonomic M331, both feature the same “feel” of a normal mouse but offer a huge reduction in the noise produced. As wireless mice, they might not be the best for eSports worthy game players, however, if they’ve reached the stage that they are regularly on stage as eSports events the noise from the mouse isn’t going to be a problem.
