Still not quite recovered from the deals avalanche during Black Friday, we still have one challenging shopping event this year. Check our selections of the best gifts for you or your significant others and prepare your shopping list to get the best discounts.

If you managed to miss a specific deal during this past week, don’t worry, there is still time to set up the necessary price alerts for the things that weren’t on sale during Black Friday. For Christmas, most of the tips shared by my colleague Dustin Porth still apply: Set wish lists, check prices, set alerts, and save the most important items on your browser.

To avoid product traps you can always count on nextpit’s reviews and best lists. We will list some of the most relevant ones below:

Smart home and appliances

With all the shiny smartphones and audio/video deals it is easy to forget other gadgets. But if you are looking for a house-wide upgrade, why not start with smart home devices?

Headphones and earbuds

If you bought a new smartphone, just to realize your fancy wired set of cans is not compatible with it, maybe it is time to consider a wireless Bluetooth alternative.

Smartwatches and fitness trackers

Smartwatches are also excellent companions to a new smartphone and even help reduce screen time by offloading notifications and some basic controls to your wrist. Fitness trackers do a similar job, albeit on a smaller scale, but their low prices make them a nice gift idea.

Having written about technology since 2008 for a number of websites in Brazil, Spain, Denmark, and Germany, I specialize in the mobile ecosystem, including various models, components, and apps. I tend to not only value performance and specifications, but also things like repairability, durability, and manufacturer support. I tend to prioritize the end-user's point of view whenever possible.
