Whether you're doing Secret Santa or gifting everyone in your circle, the dreaded question 'What do I get them?' seems to always add an extra layer to Christmas stress and somehow makes December 25th come even faster than usual. Just us?

So if you've got a person who loves tech but you're unsure where to start, look no further. 

From new releases to best-selling products, we list some of the best Christmas presents to gift your tech-head.

Apple HomePod mini - $148

Dropping right before Christmas is Apple's highly anticipated addition to their home range - sure to be on your techy's list this year. Arriving as the compact and cheaper version of the HomePod at $148, the smart appliance packs some seriously cool features like individual voice recognition to tailor requests and music to each person in the family. Listening to music or an audiobook with AirPods in? Lay your phone next to the HomePod to pick up where you left off and fill the space with its 360-degree audio sound. As well as having the usual smart home and Siri assistance, the HomePod includes a clever Intercom feature when paired with other HomePod's around the house so you can send messages to the kids in their room or your partner in the living room.
