Christmas Guide: Technology

Technology is part and parcel of everyday life, please tell me I am not the only one who feels completely lost without their phone. Whether we are checking social media, indulging in a spot of online shopping (dare I mention Black Friday?) or looking something up on Google (what did we do without Google?) technology pays a big part in all these tasks.

I’ve popped to together some top technology buys this Christmas, a little something for all the family…

 HP Stream

The ability to get onto the internet has become more and more important within family life. Whether I am typing up my latest blog post to share with you all, Roo is researching her latest school project or Tigger is enjoying some time on CBeebies. Quick and easy access is something that we require and those lovely people over at HP have the solution… The HP Stream – the perfect gift for anyone who wants to move effortlessly between work and play. The HP Stream gives free cloud storage and access to Microsoft Store.

Price: From £179 depending on what size screen up choose

Where to buy:

Kindle Fire HDX

How about adding a tablet that all the family can use… the Kindle Fire HDX with the ability to have separate accounts, Kindle Freetime to limit time spent on games (and even social media – I so need that) and different apps, music and videos registered under Mum, Dad, kiddies etc so nobody has to see anything that they don’t need to see.

Jam Fusion Buds

I’d be lost without music in my life, whether I am walking around the supermarket (yes I am that person singing along to the tunes), in the car or in the gym.

The Jam Fusion In Ear Blue Tooth headphones are ideal for listening to your favourite music on the move. Full Blue Tooth connectivity to your favourite device, with up to 6 hours wireless playing time.

    Some interesting alternatives to the usual, especially the Jam Fusion Buds as the earphones that come as standard with pretty everything are terrible
