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.

Happy shopping!

Windows 10 for Business / Dell XPS

I’d happily recommend this touchscreen laptop and Windows 10 as a great way to get serious work done at a desk or on the road.

Windows 10 / HP Spectre

Ultimately, I think the Windows 10 environment is excellent for me as it caters for so many different uses. The inclusion of the Xbox app is also great for when you need some downtime too!

Mark Escubio

Windows 10 / Lenovo Yoga

For me, the Xbox Play Anywhere is a great new feature as it allows you to play your current Xbox games with higher resolutions and better graphics without forking out extra cash for another copy. Although available titles are still scarce, but I’m sure it will grow in time.

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

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