Christmas is heading towards us at a rate of knots. With less than a month to go before the big day, you need to get your skates on and start making some decisions. If you are Christmas shopping for tech gifts, this month’s blog is an ideal place to start. It isn’t an exhaustive list, but it will give you some pointers and, hopefully, help you to make someone’s day.


The Lumos Bike Helmet

Christmas Shopping for Tech Gifts - Lumos Bike HelmetWhat a fantastic gift for the cyclist in the family. The Lumos Kickstart bike helmet ensures that you will be seen when you are out on the roads. With a total of forty-eight LEDs positioned on the helmet, you can let other traffic know that you are coming towards, or going away from them. The LED’s at the back can act as a brake light, and there are also LED’s that work as indicators. These indicators are operated from a small remote control that can be used from the handlebars. 

The batteries give a total use time of six hours when the lights are flashing or 3 hours if the lights are left on continuous beam. There is a smartphone app that allows you to check on battery life, etc.

This one-size-fits makes a great gift for any member of the family.


Bose Frames

For the person who has everything, why not shop for a gift that looks ahead to next summer killing two birds with one stone?

Bose frames not only act as a traditional pair of sunglasses, but they also contain tiny speakers that can stream music straight to your ears. This ability to receive audio without having to block up your ears allows you to remain aware of events unfolding around you while, at the same time, enjoying your music. It also means that you do not have to cope with wires dangling from your earphones always catching on everything.


The Nintendo Switch Lite

The Nintendo Switch Lite is the perfect Christmas gift for the gamer in your life. As a hand-held games console, it’s light, sleek design makes it eminently easy to carry about with you wherever you go. Its built-in control screen means that everything you need to have a barrel of fun is right there in your hand. It is available in three different colour choices and is compatible with all the major Nintendo Switch games. Christmas Shopping for Tech Gifts - Ember Mug


Ember Temperature Control Smart Mug

What a wonderful gift for any coffee/tea drinker. The Ember mug is made from ceramic-coated stainless steel and can keep a drink hot for up to one and a half hours on a single charge, or all day long if the charging coaster is used. Use the Ember app to set the required temperature and customise your presets.


Well, hopefully, this has given you some food for thought. Good luck with your gift buying. If you need any more help, call into Sentinel, Ballincollig, we will be delighted to see you.
