Why you can trust TechRadar
Here's a handy list of tech-related online retailers in Singapore:
Last minute gift ideas
We have a range of gift ideas below which cater to a variety of budgets. If you’re still stuck for an idea, or you’re just running out of time, a gift card is the perfect solution for the one who has it all, or those that are simply hard to buy for.
Disney Plus subscription
If you’re after a gift that’ll keep the whole family happy, then a Disney Plus subscription is an affordable option you can get in a pinch. You can bask in childhood nostalgia with Disney’s classic animated films, or dial in Frozen or Moana for the kids at a moment’s notice. There’s also every Star Wars film in 4K HDR, and the vast majority of Marvel and Pixar movies. That’s all for less than the cost of a monthly Netflix subscription.
Christmas gift ideas
Oculus Quest 2
The Oculus Quest 2 is the best that wireless VR has to offer, so you can step into a gaming world without being tethered to a computer or console. We think that makes it much more inviting than wired alternatives, as you can freely roam around the room without worrying about tripping over a wire. It’s easy to use and comfortable to wear, with a lightweight build that won’t weigh you down. For those that don’t have the budget for a PC-based virtual reality setup, the Oculus Quest 2 is a great gift for both beginners and the more experienced.
Apple Watch SE
In our review, we went so far as to say that this is the best Apple Watch out there. We make that claim because the SE has all the benefits of the latest Apple Watch 6, but it's much more affordable. You will be missing an always-on display with this timepiece – one of the omissions to make it cheaper – but it otherwise comes with a great range of fitness features and beyond. It’s workout-companion appeal is only set to grow once Apple’s Fitness Plus feature rolls out later this year too. This is an excellent gift for the tech lover, without burning through your bank balance.
Secretlab gaming chair
We think the Secretlab Titan and Omega are among some of the best gaming chairs you can buy, so why not get the gamer in your life the best seat in the house? The reason these chairs are so great is because they’re soft, comfortable, and you can make lots of adjustments to make sure the chair feels just right. The Titan has a larger seat than the Omega if you want some extra space, and both come in a range of colour combinations.
Anker PowerCore 20100
The Anker PowerCore 20100 portable charger is perfect for that 'hard to buy for' geek in your life. It has a huge 20,100mAh battery inside, so you can top up your smartphone, tablet or ereader from anywhere, before it needs a recharge itself. It’s also our number one pick for the best portable charger you can buy. Despite its large battery, the charger is slim and easy to carry, so it’ll fit nicely into any bag.
If you’re looking to buy a present for the music lover in your life, Sony’s WF-1000XM3 are the true wireless earbuds to beat. What makes them special is class-leading noise cancellation, decent battery life and an expansive soundstage. That all fits into these tiny music makers, that might look bulky but have a sleek design and look great in the ear. But best of all, Sony has recently dropped the RRP of these earbuds, so you won’t have to spend top dollar on this particular Christmas gift.
