The season of giving is upon us and we’ve got gift ideas for music lovers, movie buffs, techies, and more. If you need a bit of guidance with present buying this year, here is a list of the top 6 pieces of technology to gift this holiday season. Remember, Vodafone customers can pay for their devices and accessories interest free over 12, 24 or 36 months.

A new phone

We have a great range of the latest smartphones on the market across the most popular brands. There are options for someone after the forefront of smartphone technology like the iPhone 11 or iPhone 11 Pro, the Samsung Galaxy Fold, Galaxy Note10 or 10+, Google Pixel 4 or 4 XL – the perfect gift for a student or a partner. There are also options for someone after a more basic device, maybe as a child’s first phone like the iPhone XR, iPhone 8 or iPhone 7, Samsung Galaxy A30 or Galaxy A20 or the OPPO Reno Z.

With Vodafone you can save on plan fees if you bundle more than one eligible plan under the same account, so your gift for someone else can benefit you too. You can also build your own data pool with up to 10 eligible plans in the same plan family – but don’t worry, you can keep family members that love to use data in check, you’re able to control who can use the data pool through My Vodafone.

A new tablet

Tablets are another popular gift choice for families with young kids thanks to their user-friendly interface. You can use them for games, film, television, news, social media, and more. Whether you’re a parent looking for something special to surprise the little one with, or you just know of a young family that could benefit from some fun new tech, a tablet is a great choice and it’s easy to get one loaded with data on the Vodafone website.

At Vodafone we offer a terrific range of Tablets across Apple iPad and Samsung Galaxy and includes the iPad Pro, iPad Air, iPad and iPad mini or the Samsung Galaxy Tab S6, Tab S5e or the Tab A 10.1. Truly a great variety of options for everyone in the family.

The Samsung Galaxy Watch

With its round face, watch hand shadowing and ticking sound, the Galaxy Watch Active2 and Galaxy Watch models are designed to feel just like traditional watches. Provided you have a compatible smartphone, the Galaxy Watch models can both take and make calls and send messages, play your favourite music and receive messages and notifications. It can help track your fitness progress and monitor your heart rate. The Galaxy Watch models will help you learn about your sleep patterns with sleep tracking. Wearers can also access their schedules to stay on top of their day-to-day routine.

Vodafone TVTM

Vodafone TVTM  is a great gift for any streaming enthusiast. It’s powered by Android TV and offers thousands of movies, shows and games from Google Play, YouTube, Netflix and your favourite apps available on the Android TV Playstore. Voice search and personalised recommendations mean you spend more time being entertained and less time looking for something great to watch. With Chromecast built-in, you can easily cast movies, shows and photos from your Android or iOS device to your TV. Plus Netflix and YouTube are only one easy click away with the Vodafone TV™ remote.

Beats headphones

Beats has been in the wireless headphone market for years – and their technology has stood the test of time. Depending on your style, here are two great Beats devices that would make great gifts this holiday season. Powerbeats Pro earphones are “totally wireless” and the perfect earphone for someone with an active lifestyle. On the other hand, Beats Studio 3 Wireless headphones offer noise cancellation and high-quality audio, making them perfect for people who like to tune out for the day.

Google Nest Home Smart Speakers

Vodafone offers a range of Google Nest Home speakers from the Google Nest Home Max, Google Nest Hub Max and the Google Nest Home Mini. These are all smart speakers and smart home hubs that can be entirely controlled by your voice, which is useful for both accessibility and convenience. It makes playing music throughout your home as simple as connecting your favourite music service and asking “Hey Google, play music”. It can also be the source of control for a smart home which makes it a great gift for a tech lover looking to implement smart technology into their home.
