If you really want to score points this holiday season, this is the ultimate tech gift to give! The Apple Watch is truly a thing of beauty but besides its obvious aesthetic appeal, it’s loaded with capabilities that will revolutionize the way users interact with technology. Providing ‘glanceable’ information so you’re always connected without having to pick up your iPhone, the Apple Watch comes with lots of built-in apps as well as plenty more you can download from the App Store. From making calls, sending text messages and listening to music to checking in for a flight, tracking daily activity and even remotely unlocking your car door, this handsomely designed device does it all!

Technology is all about making life simpler but, more and more, we’re seeing a focus not just on function but on form as well. Something as practical as a portable phone charger doesn’t have to be uninteresting. That’s why we love the sleek Poki portable phone charger from Lepow. Its slim design and fun colour options make it something you’ll actually want to carry around. Plus, it’s 30% lighter than batteries of the same power capacity. The smartphone addict on your Christmas shopping list will be thrilled to find this under the tree! Poki Portable Phone Charger, Lepow, $24.99.
