Tech gifts for Christmas

It’s that season of the year again when we share gifts with our family, friends and loved ones. If the recipient of your gifts is a sucker for tech gifts, we understand how pesky it can be to decide on an appropriate gift for them. We also included some non-tech gifts.

For starters, you'll want to check to see if the gift you're considering is compatible with the recipient's lifestyle and devices. For example, while a person who travels a lot may enjoy the Amazon Kindle books or Masterclass subscription, they might not enjoy the Ember smart mug as much.

The gifts are all within a budget of $100 or less. They are video streaming subscription, Audible subscription, Masterclass, food delivery gift card, Amazon Kindle, concert tickets, Ember coffee mug, JBL Flip 5 portable speaker, Smart plug, bamboo charging system, Oral-B Pro toothbrush.

Video streaming subscription

Give the gift of a month’s video streaming subscription plans such as Netflix, Show Max, or Disney for your loved ones to binge-watch during the festive period, and you’ll remain unforgettable through the Yuletide.


A premium Netflix monthly plan on Netflix cost less than $15 while a Disney Plus monthly subscription costs $7.99 per month. Show Max Pro Mobile costs less than $10.


For some people, the festive period is a time to relax through fictional stories or reflect on fresh ideas from books. If the person you want to give a gift to is a book lover, then audible is a great choice.

Audible is an audiobook service from Amazon which offers the world’s biggest selection of titles, ranging from much-loved classics to new releases and original podcasts. The books may be read aloud by the authors themselves, a narrator, well-known stars or even performed by an audio cast. Audible’s monthly subscription is $9.59.

Masterclass subscription

Masterclass is worth it for the majority of people who are eager to learn more and enjoy improving themselves through knowledge. Luckily, the platform allows you to subscribe as a gift. As an employer, you can also give Masterclass to your employees as a group gift or license. A subscription for an individual for a month is $15.

Food Delivery Gift card

We all love a good lunch or dinner night out. But what about a dinner night or lunch date? Having food delivered is becoming more and more popular. With the rapid growth of food delivery in Lagos, here’s the perfect gift for your tech bros who can’t cook.

Concert tickets

For most young people, being in the same hall with their favourite artiste and screaming his song back to him is one of the most exhilarating experiences they can have. Being in a crowd of fans who love the same music as you are a nearly spiritual experience.
