You'll get lots of inspiration here, but we'd also recommend checking out the best Christmas tech deals to find some great bargains.

Gifts for kids

Kids increasingly want - and expect - high-tech presents but few people can afford or want to give their children iPads for Christmas.

There are many cheaper options when it comes to tablets and other techy gifts for kids, as demonstrated in our round-up, which you can read here, along with our separate guides to the best robot toys and coding games for kids.

In addition to being lots of fun, these gifts are often educational too - a lesson in disguise.

Star Wars gifts

With the new film Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker out now, we’ve rounded up the coolest gadgets and gifts available.

Whether it’s a Christmas present, reward for surviving the prequel years, or just plain old avarice, these are most certainly the goods you’re looking for. Take a look here.

One of our favourites is the Sphero R2-D2, available from Amazon for £79.99.

Minecraft gifts

The popularity of Minecraft just keeps growing, so we expect that there will be lots of block-shaped presents beneath Christmas trees this year ready for excited fans to enjoy.

We've gathered lots of our favourite gifts and gadgets for your Minecraft-loving friends and family, which you'll find here.

We love this light up Redstone Ore, for example, available from Amazon for just £10.90.

Subscription boxes

A subscription to a mystery box is the gift that keeps on giving.

You can choose to gift three, six or twelve months of most of the subscription boxes in our round-up of the best nerdy options, and the recipient will get a box of geeky goodies every month. Cool, right?

The one shown here is Lootcrate, one of the most popular available. It costs £24 per month from the Lootcrate website, and there are lots of different themed options to choose from.

This year we loved Red Dead Redemption 2.

Instant cameras

You'd think instant cameras would be consigned to the past, but nostalgia has dragged them kicking and screaming into the 21st Century, and surprisingly enough they're actually a welcome presence.

In an age of instant filters and digital backups, there's something to be said for a camera that doesn't let you pick the perfect photo out of ten options, and that immediately gives you a physical print to hang onto.

We've tested a selection for our guide to the best instant cameras, but for gift giving one of our favourites us the affordable Instax Square SQ6.

Gaming keyboards

Another option for gamers, this time the PC-loving variety, is a new gaming keyboard.

We've picked out 12 of the best gaming keyboards available to buy in the UK, so take a look here.

Among the best is the Razer Huntsman gaming keyboard, which is available for £119 from Amazon.

Gaming mice

Alternatively, how about a gaming mouse? You'll find 9 of the best gaming mice to buy for Christmas in our round-up by clicking here.

This mouse from Razer is one of the most user-friendly mice we've tested, and could make the perfect gift for PC gamers. It's just under £70 from Amazon.

Board games

Not tech at all, but here at Tech Advisor we have a particularly nerdy taste in board games that we think lovers of computer games will enjoy so we couldn't resist putting together a list of our favourites.

There's a bewildering variety of games to choose from, but we're here to help. Forget Monopoly and Risk - board games these days can be far more in-depth and amazing.

Take a look at our pick of the best by clicking here.
