From the perfect phone to a smart notebook, here are our top picks.

The countdown to Christmas is well and truly on, and if you’ve got a tech lover on your Christmas list – or you fancy nabbing some new gadgets for yourself – we’ve got just the sale for you.

To make the process of Christmas shopping easier this year, the folks at Virgin Mobile are running an unmissable offer. During their Red Friday sale, those who buy one of Virgin Mobile’s top three smartphones – Google Pixel 8, Apple Phone 13 or a Samsung Galaxy S23 – will also receive the gift of a set of JBL Live Pro 2 Earbuds.

To ease you into this year’s shopping, we’ve put together a gift guide for the tech lover in your life, which includes the three phones that come with a gift in Virgin Mobile’s Red Friday sale. Once you’ve got the perfect phone sorted, pair it with some of our favourite tech accessories and prepare to wow your loved ones on Christmas morning.

Google Pixel 8

Google Pixel 8 is the only phone to be manufactured by Google, so it comes as no surprise that it’s loaded with great features, including an advanced camera with Best Take, an Audio Magic Eraser and Macro Focus.

Apple iPhone 13

Treat the Apple fan in your life on Christmas morning with the Apple iPhone 13. This iPhone is made with the A15 Bionic chip – the fastest CPU in an iPhone, making it 50% faster than any other smartphone.

Samsung Galaxy S23

Manufactured with eco-conscious materials and decked out with 50MP camera for high-resolution photos, this slick smartphone will make an excellent gift this Christmas.

Each handset is free upfront for Virgin media customers, and 55 a month for 24 months, which includes the phone and an unlimited SIM plan from Virgin Mobile. At the end of the 24 months, your phone is paid for, and you will only be billed for your unlimited SIM plan

Once you’ve got the phone sorted, add some of these top accessories to your loved one’s Christmas stocking.

With a sleek Ember Mug, you can ensure your tea or coffee stays at the perfect temperature throughout your drinking experience.

Jot down your ideas on the fly with this 36-paged, reusable smart notebook that you can connect to other apps like Google Drive, email or Slack.
