Boxing Day is celebrated the day after Christmas as a holiday in parts of the British Commonwealth, when Christmas gifts are traditionally given to service workers. It is legally observed in the United Kingdom, Ireland and some other Commonwealth countries such as Australia, New Zealand and Canada.
Even though the origins of this day have nothing to do with packing unwanted Christmas presents into boxes for return, this day has become one of the most prominent shopping days of the year. Shopping and Boxing Day go hand in hand, with malls flooded with people taking advantage of after-Christmas bargains.
This day is truly the most magical time of the year, especially for gadget geeks. There are more products on shelves than at any time of the year, with good deals just waiting to be had. Here is a list of some Gadgets you can gift, this Boxing Day.
The iPhone 5S (Gold):
Go for Gold! There’s nothing more fancy than the iPhone 5S Gold. This is one of the hottest gadgets in recent memory, and serves as a perfect gift for the gadget-lover on your Boxing Day shopping list. This shiny device will surely outshine any other gift this shopping season.
The iPad Air:
The iPad Air is one of those gifts that both techies and non-techies will savor. While techies around the world will love it as an additional device, it is also an ideal replacement for a computer. This dramatically thinner, lighter and more advanced tablet is a must have, and is bound to be a huge hit this season.
The Pebble is an affordable, e-ink monochrome smartwatch, which works just the way a smartwatch should. With the Samsung smartwatch unable to sync with devices other than the Galaxy series, the Pebble can work on most mobile platforms. The intuitive user experience and the cost-effectiveness of the device make this smartwatch a handy gift that anyone will appreciate.
The Google Chromecast is another wonderful gadget for its price and size. This nifty little device is compatible with iOS, Android, PC and Mac devices. $35 is really an ultra-cheap price to pay for its features that it offers. The Google Chromecast is a must buy gadget for the Boxing Day, especially if you don’t want to spend more than 50 dollars.
Last, but not least, the PlayStation 4 is the most powerful gaming console on the planet. It has more graphical power than the Xbox One. Additionally, it also has 32 times more system memory than its previous edition and focus on a pure, engaging gaming experience, rather than media mojo, this is the ideal gift for game enthusiasts.
This is the time of the season where there are numerous offers that come your way. In terms of shopping, Boxing Day is a day when shopaholics go all out, the same way the Americans do on Black Friday.
