The Holiday’s are well and truly here. This year, C247 has racked up some of our best picks for stocking fillers, so you don’t have to search around. And with that, Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!
The Apple AirTag was first introduced back in April of 2021 at Apple’s “Spring Loaded” event and was a huge success that racked up much attention, not only from Apple fans but from everyone who has those panic moments where the keys suddenly grow legs and run off from the table where you swore you left them- so essentially, the rest of the human population. Apple’s AirTag offers countless features, including working offline to track items from your device (unfortunately restricted to Apple devices) whether you have access to an internet connection or not. AirTag’s are brilliant for attaching to luggage, tools and instruments or even tracking a runaway dog. The AirTags are pretty easy to set up, and at just 1.26” in diameter, they’re only a tad bigger than a £1 coin. You can pick these up for as little as £29.99, making them a small and value-packed contender to be inside this year’s Christmas stocking.
Google Nest Mini
The Nest Mini is Google’s solution to every other smart home assistant on the market and is produced by the world’s largest source of global information; it’s safe to say it’s not worth overlooking when deciding what stocking fillers to use this year. If we were to list all the cool features the Google Nest Mini has, this blog would very soon turn into a dictionary, so we’ll just list a couple. The Google Nest Mini is there to help with quite literally anything. Want to know if you'll need an umbrella the next time you head out? Ask Google, and the Nest Mini will let you know if any rain is expected. You can also get the latest sports, finance, news updates, and more. Stay organised and ask Google to manage your schedule. Mark dates in your diary, set reminders, alarms, and more. What’s more, with the Google Next Mini, you’re able to use your voice to control all your smart home devices, whether that be to dim the lights, adjust your smart thermostat or even lock your front door – although the latter is leaning towards the lazier functions of the Nest. You can grab one of these powerhouses for a mere £39.00 to chuck into this year’s stocking.
Sony WH-CH510 Headphones
Sony’s WH-C150 are their most lightweight pair of Bluetooth over-ear headphones out to date. With a large battery and quick charging, these headphones can last up to 35 hours on a single charge, and of course, if you’re running low on time, as we all do, a mere 10-minute charge will return a full 90 minutes of play-back time. With such an impressive battery and, of course, trademark Sony audio quality, you’re probably asking what more they can offer. Oh yes, voice assistant compatibility and hands-free calling. You can snag this hidden gem for just £40 with same-day dispatch before 5pm this Christmas at C247.
JBL GO2 Speaker
The JBL GO 2 is a full-featured waterproof Bluetooth speaker to take with you everywhere allowing you to wirelessly stream music via Bluetooth for up to 5 hours of continuous JBL quality sound. If there are any plans in the works for a sunny trip to the Maldives in the Summer of 2023, sipping cocktails at the poolside with a speaker in hand, then this is the stocking filler you need. Of course, if you’re like me and will just get by with a cheap weekend to Devon at the sea, the JBL GO2 also has you covered. As with the Sony Headphones, you can pick up the JBL GO2 from C247 with same-day dispatch before 5pm this Christmas at C247 for only £29.97.
Fitbit Inspire 2
The Fitbit Inspire 2 is the entry-level Fitbit for anyone whose New Year’s resolution is to dabble into some fitness amongst their busy schedules but may not have enough time to commit to a consistent schedule. And to that, we say, that’s completely fine! There’s more to Fitbit’s than fitness, and, whilst the name suggests otherwise, these watches still offer some brilliant general smartwatch functionality such as setting alarms, timers, tracking steps, and even keeping an eye on your heartrate. This year you’re able to pick up one of these value-packed goodies for as little as £22.49. Oh, and did we also mention that it is fully waterproof for use in pools as well?
What a year 2022 has been; with it finally drawing to a close, we hope our selection of festive stocking fillers will bring a smile to a loved one’s face this Christmas or even your own! Let us know if you’ll be using any of our picks for your own stocking fillers in the discussion section below – Merry Christmas.
