Nintendo 2DS XL

Add to my Christmas List

The Nintendo Switch is a bit too expensive for this list at £299, but at half that price the smaller, sleeker 2DS XL is a great consolation prize for on-the-go gamers who love Nintendo's library of titles. Plus, two screens are always better than one.

Find it on Amazon for £175.

Google Home

Add to my Christmas List

Google first smart speaker is still largely unchanged, but the software behind it gets upgraded all the time. Its Google Assistant works with more than 10,000 devices, the list of Hey Google commands just keeps growing, and only Google promises to place calls on your behalf.

Amazon Echo Plus

Add to my Christmas List

The Plus-size version of the original Echo is shorter and cloth-covered, and has improved sound quality as well as a Zigbee hub built in. The Sonos One is better overall, but maybe the smart home fan on your list really, really likes Zigbee devices.

Find it on Amazon for £140.

Google Home Hub

Add to my Christmas List

With a smaller screen and no built-in camera, Google's first smart display takes a different tack from the Echo Show. Tight integration with Google Photos and other big-G services, a slick design and most of all a lower price could make it a more appealing gift.

Find it on the Google store for £139.

Kindle Paperwhite (2018)

Add to my Christmas List

The new fully backlit Paperwhite improves on its predecessor with a smoother finish, slimmer design and Bluetooth. But the biggest difference is full waterproofing, which should be music to the ears of book lovers who like to relax with a Kindle in the bath.

Find it on Amazon for £120.

Jabra Elite Active 65t

Add to my Christmas List

Fitbit Charge 3

Add to my Christmas List

Even less expensive, and more fitness tracker than smart watch, the Charge 3 has a smaller screen and lacks the Versa's app store, but it could be plenty. Battery life and sleep tracking are also better than the Apple Watch.

Find it on Amazon for £130.

Coros Linx Cycling Helmet

Add to my Christmas List

So what about the serious biker on your list? There's a cap for that. The Coros Linx is less about fitness tracking and more about making it easier and safer to listen to music while you ride. A set of headphones shuts out noise, but the Linx lets you listen to the tunes and keep an ear out for danger.

Find it on Amazon for £130
