Gearburn Gift Guide: 5 great tech gifts under R5000

Gearburn Gift Guide

Okay, so you’ve got a small fortune set aside to spoil someone special this festive season? Here are five great tech gifts under R5000 you might want to look at.

A smartwatch for the health-conscious

Anyone who loves to stay up-to-date with their health and fitness is sure to love a smartwatch, and with so many on the market, it can be hard to choose the best one.

With 5k to toss around though, you can go for something like the Garmin Vivoactive 3 for R 4589 or the Fitbit Versa 2 for R3989.

You could also opt for something from Huawei, Apple and Samsung based on what smartphone your loved one owns.

A collection of the latest games for the avid gamer

The latest games aren’t cheap, so any gamer would certainly appreciate an updated collection to get stuck into.

If you’re willing to build a catalogue of 2019’s top releases, I would suggest bagging Call of Duty: Modern Warfare, Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order, Death Stranding and Mortal Kombat 11

This small collection will cost you roughly R3834, and you can still throw in some older classics too.

A smartphone printer for the budding photographer

Smartphone printers are a fun novelty, and if you’re shopping for a budding smartphone photographer or passionate scrapbooker, one of these is sure to make a great little gift.

I personally found the Instax Mini Link from Fujifilm particularly nifty and practical, but the Instax Share SP-2 is also worth considering for R2924.

A smart home device for the trendy home-body

Smart home devices are becoming the norm and any who loves spending time in their homes would benefit from owning one.

You could go for Google Home or the Amazon Echo for R2299 and R2199 respectively over on Superbalist.

A drawing tablet for the modern artist

This gift will probably take some practice to get used to if you’re buying it for a first-timer, but its still a fun tool for anyone who enjoys drawing both on paper and digitally.

If you’re not sure what to choose, the Wacom Intuos M Drawing Tablet with Bluetooth connectivity is definitely a worthy contender for R3199 on Takealot.
