Christmas gadget guide part one: under £100

No-one knows what to buy you for Christmas. Help them out with this handy gift guide

You are a dad, therefore you are ‘hard to buy for’. That’s what they’re saying about you right now. Your loved ones, that is.

“I’ve no idea what to get for him,” they’re saying. “There’s nothing he needs,” they complain. This is a problem that you can’t ignore, or it’s another festive season full of socks for you.

Steer them in the direction of this gadget round-up (or, if they’re flush, our over £100 version) and make sure there’s something you actually want under the tree this year.

If you love books, there’s a lot to love about a proper e-reader. While the popularity of tablets has led many people to read their ebooks on brightly-lit LCD screens – the experience of reading from an e-ink screen such as those on a Kindle is far superior. It’s just like reading from a book, in fact, with the big difference that your Kindle can hold thousands of books (and weighs less than a single one of them). The Kindle range starts at only £59 – though we’re big fans of the Paperwhite model, with its whiter screen (and better contrast) and built-in light. That model just shades over the £100 mark, at £109 for the wi-fi only model.
From £59.00, Amazon
