Don't get stuck for Christmas presents this year, visit our guide to find some top-choice gifts for your loved ones

It's that time of year again when most of us fret over what to buy for our loved ones. Fear not, though, for our Christmas Gift Guide can set you in the right direction, no matter what your budget.

With the help of our sponsors and editors, we've assembled a selection of gifts that we think are a great fit for families, gadget lovers, techies, and basically anyone who's hard to shop for.

From the standard stuff, such as iPod Shuffles, smartphones, laptops and tablets, to more quirky gifts, such as portable record players and Wi-Fi-enabled lights, we've got you covered.

Perhaps you want an ebook reader to convince an avid bookworm to go 'electronic'. Or maybe you know a rocker or two who would love a pair of killer headphones. Then there are fitness gadgets that are designed for training, motivation and wellness.

Click the image below to access the guide and navigate through the four categories to see all the gifts we've rounded up.

First impression on unpacking the Q702 test unit was the solid feel and clean, minimalist styling.

Anthony Grifoni


For work use, Microsoft Word and Excel programs pre-installed on the device are adequate for preparing short documents.

Steph Mundell


The Fujitsu LifeBook UH574 allowed for great mobility without being obnoxiously heavy or clunky. Its twelve hours of battery life did not disappoint.

Andrew Mitsi


The screen was particularly good. It is bright and visible from most angles, however heat is an issue, particularly around the Windows button on the front, and on the back where the battery housing is located.

Simon Harriott


My first impression after unboxing the Q702 is that it is a nice looking unit. Styling is somewhat minimalist but very effective. The tablet part, once detached, has a nice weight, and no buttons or switches are located in awkward or intrusive positions.
