There’s one guarantee with Christmas – choosing gifts isn’t always easy. It’s difficult to know what people want, what’s out there or what certain products do. Apple have made the task of finding a present this year easy by releasing a visual Gifts For Christmas Guide on their Online Store, with a unique approach to most guides you’ve probably come across.
This year Apple have organized the guide into 6 interests: Gaming, Photography, Music, Fitness, Learning and Travel; visually showcasing products in each category, and explaining why they’re the perfect gift for Christmas. Suggestions include both their own range of products, along with third-party accessories, which let you achieve even more with your iPhone, iPad, Apple Watch, Apple TV and the Mac.
The new Apple TV, gaming controllers and fun accessories such as the popular Parrot Bebop Drone or Star Wars BB-8 Droid by Sphero have made it to the gaming section, which will satisfy the hardcore or casual gamer from adults to kids.
Photography is getting a big push this year – we’ve seen Apple release a Photography and Videography Kit only recently. To get most out of the new iPhone 6s (which features a new 12-mega pixel camera and 4K video recording) there are a number of accessories perfect for photography including Lenses, Tripods, Kits and more for iPhone. The iPad – especially the new iPad Pro – are perfect for editing photos from the home or on the go.
Almost all of us enjoy Music – some of us enjoy listening to music, while others love to create it. In the gifts for music lovers section you’ll find accessories from headphones, to the best portable speakers, studio quality vocal mics, iRig Pads and of course the iPad and MacBook which make creating music easy with GarageBand or Logic Pro X.
One of the most popular gifts this christmas is the Apple Watch, with a big part of the Watch being able to track your health and fitness it makes it a perfect gift for the fitness lover. Apple Watch is available in a number of styles, and additional bands can be purchased in the future so they can find a style they love.
There’s also a range of other gifts including sweat resistant headphones, Bike Trainer compatible with iPhone plus more for learning and travelling, including the new beats Active Collection.
Apple are also offering the option for your gifts to be packaged in their signature gift wrapping, which can be done as you checkout. Apple are also offering Personal Pickup for the first time in Australia allowing you to purchase gifts from the Apple Online Store but rather than getting your purchase delivered you can select to pick them up at an Apple Retail Store of your choice.
If you’re still unsure about your gift idea Apple are also extending the returns period to 3 months on most purchases allowing for items to be returned after Christmas if you wish. Head over to the Apple Online Store for the complete Christmas gift guide.
