Holiday Gift Guide 2018: Best Ideas for Canadian Apple Fans and Beyond

Share:

If you haven’t started holiday shopping yet, there’s still time. It can be difficult to find that ‘perfect’ present for your loved ones, so we’re here to help with a list of some of our favourite products of the year, geared towards Apple fans and beyond.

Apple Products

  • iPhone XR (starting at $1029 CAD) – Click here to read our review. Great upgrade if you’re on an older iPhone. Portrait mode with the wide angle lens is better versus iPhone XS/XS Max, while battery life is the longest of any iPhone available.

  • Apple Watch Series 4 Nike+ (starting at $519 CAD) – Click here to read our review. Larger screen, faster, more refined. The Apple Watch to get if you’re upgrading from Series 2 or older.

  • Apple TV 4K (starting at $229 CAD) – more and more streaming options are on Apple TV for cord-cutters. Buy from Costco.ca and use the $20 off $100 MasterPass deal to save more.

  • iPad Pro (starting at $999) – Face ID technology in a new design. Luxurious hardware that will cost you big time; still functions like an iPad of years’ past, but there’s a new Apple Pencil. Click here to read our review (still hard to put down).




Smart Home and Speakers

  • Sonos Beam ($499) – upgrade the sound on any TV, plus works with Alexa to allow you to use your voice to control your TV (requires HDMI ARC). Click here to read our review.

  • Nest Hello ($299) + Google Home mini ($79): the ultimate smart doorbell combo. Facial recognition, wide angle, night vision, 2-way audio plus 24/7 HD recording. One tap replies to delivery couriers. Google Home mini acts as a doorbell you can place anywhere in the home. “Someone is at the front door.” Or “Steve Jobs is at the front door.” We love ours, despite requiring a Nest Aware subscription to get all the benefits.

Other Gift Ideas
