It’s so hard to know what to buy friends and family nowadays, especially at Christmas as your entire social circle goes into overdrive giving gifts to each other. Whether you’re looking for the perfect present for your partner or just something small to give your Secret Santa, it’s easy to get stressed out. Don’t panic, Manchester Airport is here to help. If you’ve got a trip planned this winter we have plenty of brilliant tech gifts at low airport prices for all the special people in your life:

GoPro Series 7 Action Camera: For The Social Media Superstar

By recording 4K footage and using unique image stabilisation software, your vlogging celebrity-in-the-making will be able to create fast-paced professional quality videos whatever they’re doing. And because the GoPro Hero7 is both water- and weather-proofed you can be sure that this is one gift that will last longer than a week.


Bose Sleepbuds: For The Super Stressed

We all know someone who could do with a little extra sleep. Give your friends and family the gift of a good night’s sleep this Christmas with Bose Sleepbuds. These unique earbuds produce a set of soothing pre-loaded sounds to lull you into a deep sleep. They then monitor your vital signs and wake you up at the perfect point during your sleep cycle to ensure you rise fresh-faced and ready for the day.


Nintendo Switch Games Console: For The Geeky Gamer

Even if you’re not a big gamer, we bet that you know Mario, Zelda and Pokémon, right? Well, in the last two years, Nintendo has released a title in each of these series for their newest console, the ground-breaking Nintendo Switch. Unlike any other console, the Switch can be played on the TV or on-the-go making it ideal for breaking up the commute or keeping kids busy while travelling. And because the console comes with a joy-con controller that splits into two, you can put an end to those fights over whose turn it is.


Bose QC35 II Limited Edition Headphones: For The Audio Obsessed

If your friend has ever treated you to a short sermon on the benefits of proper acoustics or the pros and cons of different audio formats, the Bose QC35 II Limited Edition is the perfect gift for them. With advanced noise-cancelling technology built-in that processes the background noise around the listener and creates a frequency to counteract it, your friend can focus on their favourite tracks anywhere. And these Bose headphones even have a 20 hour battery life, so they’re sure to last a few days between charges.


Dyson Supersonic Hairdryer: For The Beauty Queen

While it seems every beauty innovation has been discovered, you’d be wrong to believe it. This year Dyson floored the fashion world with their incredible Supersonic hairdryer. By using Dyson’s patented Air Multiplier Technology, this model dries hair faster, quieter and with more precision to help your friends create their ultimate looks. The kit even includes a smoothing nozzle and a range of handy attachments to make sure that you have everything you need to create a trailblazing style.


Philips Series 9000 Electric Shaver With Precision Trimmer: For The Styling King

If there are still innovations to be found in the world of hairdryers, you can be sure there are just as many to be discovered with electric shavers. The Philips Shaver is comprised of all the newest shaving breakthroughs, including a V-track blade system which delivers a close shave that follows the contours of your face perfectly. The battery lasts for around 50 minutes after an hour of charge so you or your friend will have plenty of time to agonise over your new look. And, because this set even includes a separate precision trimmer you can be sure it includes everything you need to turn heads with a new look.


Fitbit Charge 3 Smart Watch: For The Fitness Fanatic

Every family has at least one person who’s obsessed with exercise and there’s no better present for the fitness fanatic than a Fitbit. Whether your loved one is a swimmer or a jogger, this model has them covered with its waterproofing and range of modes dedicated to each individual sport. The Fitbit Charge 3 even helps with day to day activities as it can connect to their phone to alert them to any calls or messages and make smart payments.


HP Sprocket Photo Printer: For The Social Butterfly

HP Sprocket instant photo printer

While digital cameras are fantastic, sometimes it’s easy to miss the Polaroid cameras of the past that would take a picture and print it instantly. If you know someone who would love to decorate their room or desk with pictures of their friends, the HP Sprocket is an ideal gift. The portable printer uses no ink and simply hooks up to your phone to create small Polaroid-style pictures out of any of the images you’ve taken on your smartphone.


Samsung Galaxy Tab S4 Tablet: For The Techy Type

It’s no secret that there’s been a constant battle for supremacy in the tablet market for the last few years and it’s becoming clear that Samsung will be a major player going forward. Just look at the Samsung Galaxy Tab S4 and it’s easy to see how the company stands out from their competitors, the Tab S4 is sleek, stylish and super-lightweight. Add in the bright AMOLED Display and a spectacular built-in sound system and you have everything you need to stream, game and even make video calls to your heart’s content.


Fujifilm XP130 Camera: For The Amateur Photographer

Whether it’s beautiful landscapes, incredible nature shots or just fantastic family photos, there’s always that one friend or family member who takes great photos no matter where you are. Make 2019 the year that you give your friend the push they need to become a professional photographer with the Fujifilm XP130. A beginner-friendly camera, the Fujifilm is built for action with a rugged design that can survive most drops and bumps. However, while it’s beginner-friendly, don’t underestimate this model – it has a high-performance sensor to rival top-of-the-line models.
