People love giving and receiving gifts. Gifting is the most common way to express how much we appreciate someone. You don’t need a special day or occasion to give a thoughtful gift to your loved ones. Though there’s a million items that would make for great gift ideas, you can never go wrong with the latest tech gadgets that make life easier and help in the pursuit of your loved one’s passions.

Gifting tech gadgets are tricky because of the array of options available. But worry not, we’ve rounded up a list of the must-have gadgets from some of the best tech companies in the world.

Read on for our list of the best gadgets from your favourite brands:

 

Apple Store

 

Apple

The best place to begin your gift search for tech lovers is the Apple store. Better yet, bring them to visit the only one in the world located in a sphere floating on water. Designed by the architecture studio Foster + Partners, Apple at Marina Bay Sands offers a mesmerising new retail experience at one of the most iconic locations in Singapore.

Comprising 114 pieces of glass and 10 narrow vertical mullions, this first-of-its-kind, all-glass dome structure was inspired by the Pantheon in Rome. The stunning interiors, lit up by a combination of the oculus at the apex of the dome and the unique custom baffles on the inside, elevates the overall shopping experience by providing a nighttime lighting effect. In true Singaporean fashion, there are elements of nature inside the store, too - trees line the interior of the dome, providing additional shading and soft shadows. This well-rounded store offers uninterrupted 360-degree panoramic views of the Marina Bay area and the spectacular skyline.

These are our picks for Apple gadgets that make great gifts:

 

Apple iPhone

 

iPhone 13 Pro and iPhone 13 Pro Max

Everyone loves an iPhone. One of the world’s best phones is also the most coveted one, making it the perfect gift for your gadget-loving friend. The latest iterations, the iPhone 13 Pro and Pro Max, take everything that the iPhone is known for – speed, usability, efficiency, security – and elevates it to a whole new level.

The iPhone 13 Pro and Pro Max has better processing thanks to the revolutionary A15 chip, better low-light photography and videography due to AI, better drop protection courtesy the new Ceramic Shield, and much more. Some of the other industry-leading features of the iPhone 13 Pro and Pro Max include IP68 water resistance, magnetic wireless charging, extensive 5G range, and spatial audio. Take your gift up a notch by bundling it with a pair of AirPods, engraved with the name of that special someone.

 

Apple watch

 

Apple Watch Series 7

Smartwatches have been an integral part of any tech enthusiast’s inventory, and the much-loved Apple Watch definitely tops the ‘must-have’ list. Though the latest iteration of the Apple Watch is only available late 2021, you can expect class-leading features such as a larger Retina display, greater durability with enhanced water, dust, and crack resistance, and innovative health functionalities that allow you to measure your blood oxygen and generate an ECG anytime, anywhere.

You can customise the case and strap of the Apple Watch according to the personality of the gift recipient too. Up the chic quotient with a Nike or Hermes band to incorporate their signature style for a luxurious finish.

 

Apple Macbook

 

MacBook Pro and MacBook Air

Weighing in at just 1.3kg, the MacBook Air is Apple’s thinnest and lightest notebook yet. Fuelled by the company’s fastest CPU ever made, the M1 chip, it is powerful enough to run extraordinarily intensive tasks like professional-quality editing and action-packed gaming. Some of the other features of the ultra-portable MacBook Air include: exceptional battery life, sleek metal design, Retina display, Touch ID, and Siri integration.

If you’re looking to gift a MacBook with a longer battery life, you can never go wrong with MacBook Pro. While the MacBook Air might be Apple’s lightest notebook, the MacBook Pro is the most powerful iteration with up to 20 hours of battery life – the longest for any Mac. It’s also packed with incredible technologies such as an immersive Retina display, advanced graphics, massive storage, super-fast processors, and Magic Keyboard for faster and efficient typing.
