Here are our recommended tech gift ideas for holiday season:
Redmi Smart Band 2
First is a smartwatch, the Redmi Band 2 which is one of the cheapest in our list. Fitness trackers or smartwatches are beneficial nowadays because they can be used when working out and they also have health-tracking capabilities. Besides, I also found it useful for notifications, especially for people who have their phone in silent mode and don’t always have their phone in their hands.
This Redmi Smart Band 2 has a 1.47-inch TFT display 2.5D micro-curved glass with up to 450nits max brightness and 100+ band faces.
It also has a 210mAh battery capacity that can provide up to 14 days depending on your usage. In the charging time, it was fully charged in less than 2 hours. This smartwatch also has 30+ fitness modes that you can for your workouts.
For health tracking, it features heart rate monitoring, SpO2 tracking, stress monitoring, sleep tracking, and female health tracking.
Actually, this is the smartwatch I use and I’ve been using it for half a year. I can say that the data it provides is almost accurate, especially in health monitoring.
If you want to give it as a gift this holiday season, you can buy it at Xiaomi’s official store on Shopee and Lazada for only PHP 1,199.
realme Buds Air 5
Next is realme Buds Air 5, realme’s latest wireless earphones that offer great active noise cancellation and sound quality. A wireless earphone as a gift this holiday season is a no-brainer.
The realme Buds Air 5 highlights up to 5dB Active Noise Cancellation, 12.4mm audio driver, and 45ms super low latency. I have been using these earphones for quite a while now and I can say that it truly sounds great. Audiophiles will love using this especially since it has a dynamic bass boost.
It is also perfect for those who are always in video meetings because it has 6-mic call noise cancelation. I have used it in a video call and the person I talked to said that my voice was loud and not noisy.
The realme Buds Air 5 offers a very long battery life of up to 38 hours of playback. realme claimed that with a 10-minute charge, it can provide up to 7 hours of playback.
I have been using it for over a month so I am confident to recommend it to anyone. If this is your choice of gift, you can buy it on realme’s official flagship store on Shopee and Lazada for only PHP 3,499. But as of writing, the price listed is only PHP 2,299. Grab that steal price before it goes back to the original pricing.
The good thing about this mouse is that its other features can also be seen in other high-end wireless mice such as its optical sensor. That’s why it’s worth buying.
The Darmoshark M3 features PAW339, a highly-capable chipset that supports up to 26000DPI, 650IPS, and 50G acceleration. This allows you to have an accurate and precise gaming experience. While for the switch, it features Kaihua GM8.0 Black Mamba micro switches that have up to 80 million clicks.
It also lasts a week based on my usage, thanks to its 500mAh battery capacity. You can also connect this mouse to your laptop or PC via Bluetooth, 2.4GHz connectivity, or via its braided USB-C paracord cable.
It’s time to ditch the messy cables on the desk and switch to wireless peripherals. Whether for you or someone you know, this Darmoshark M3 is a perfect gift. You can buy it only via Shopee and Lazada for only PHP 2,190.
Royal Kludge RKG68
Of course, the keyboard will not be missing from our list. This is Royal Kludge RKG68 which is a 65% mechanical keyboard. Besides being wireless, it can also provide a level-up typing experience so the person you gift it to will be really happy.
It also has great features and it’s perfect for newbies or mechanical keyboard enthusiasts. This Royal Kludge RKG68 is available in blue switch, red switch, and brown switch. You can also buy other 5-pin switches because this one is hot-swappable, which means, you can easily change its switch.
Like the Darmoshark M3, you can also connect this keyboard to your devices via Bluetooth, 2.4GHz connectivity, and USB-C cable. As for the battery, it has a 1,450mAh battery capacity that also lasts for weeks. So far, this keyboard is fine because I have been using it for almost a year now.

FiFine AmpliGame A6V
Last but not least tech gift to give this holiday season is a condenser microphone. This FiFine AmpliGame A6V microphone is one of the best budget condenser mics available out there.
The sound quality you get here is perfect for voice recording, live streams, online classes, video meetings, and more. Actually, this is what I use for my voiceovers in my vlogs and livestreams and it never fails me.
The FiFine AmpliGame A6V is simply plug and play via a USB-A cable and is compatible with Windows, MacOS, Linux, PS4, and PS5. It is a unidirectional or cardioid pattern, so its sounds can only be picked up in front of the mic. It also has helpful controls like its tap-to-mute sensor and gain control.
You can also level up your gaming experience because it has RGB. It’s just that, its light is not customizable and it’s always on.
If this is what you choose to gift, you can buy it at FiFine’s official store on Shopee and Lazada for only PHP 1,999.
