on 27 October 2018 in Shopping
We live in a gadget-driven world these days and let’s face it, a shiny or innovative new toy puts a smile on everyone’s dial. Looking for a gadget-friendly gift this Christmas? We’ve rounded up some of the best tech gifts for every type of person.


Coolangatta is made for healthy living. With the beach on the doorstep complete with fantastic running paths and the Gold Coast’s first underground gym, there’s no better place to get active. For the fitness fan living in Coolangatta, a Fitbit Smartwatch complements their lifestyle perfectly. Fitbit’s newest model can monitor just about any type of physical activity and features a boosted battery that lasts up to four days.

Clear View Toaster

For the person in your house that’s always burning toast, a clear view toaster makes an excellent gift. Watch your bread as it heats up to the perfect level of toastiness and pop the toast when it reaches your desired level. Check out a whole host of other kitchen gadgets when you next shop for organic groceries at Healthy House.  

Self-Balancing Hoverboard

Coolangatta promenade is perfect for anything on wheels. For something a little bit different, the SwagTron T1 is a secure hoverboard/mini Segway that any teen would love. The world’s first hoverboard to pass the new UL 2272 standard for hoverboards, it has a large group of security components that are unparalleled. If a hoverboard doesn’t fit within your budget, check out the great range of decks at Concrete Lines Skate Shop.

Whistle 3 Pet Tracker

Whistle’s previous on-collar devices allowed pet parents to quickly locate their lost pet. They also tracked a pet’s daily exercise, enabling pet owners to be proactive in their pet’s health and wellbeing. The new Whistle 3 improves this, making pet care more intelligent and intuitive. If you know someone who loves their dog, the Whistle 3 is a fantastic gift they’re bound to love.

USB-Heated Travel Mug

Coffee is a daily ritual in Coolangatta and The Strand at Coolangatta has no shortage of quality coffee outlets to grab a caffeine fix. For the coffee lover in your life, a USB-Heated Travel Mug offers a “keep cup” that will keep coffee warm all day. They’ll be able to plug the mug into a computer at work and enjoy piping hot coffee whenever they want it.

Polaroid Pop Digital Camera

Instagram is great for showing friends your favourite moments in life, but there’s always room for physical snaps too. The Polaroid Pop Digital Camera is small enough to carry everywhere and it instantly pops out 3x4” photos with that iconic white border. For young ones that love taking snaps with their friends, there’s even a selfie timer.

Wine Preserver

Unlike conventional wine preservers, the zzysh Wine Preserver creates a vacuum and replaces the harmful air and oxygen in a bottle of wine with 100% food-grade argon gas. This Swiss innovation keeps a wine’s natural flavour and quality for weeks and is recommended by wine experts all over the world. Pair a zzysh Wine Preserver with a bottle of wine from Cooly Liquor for the ultimate wine-lovers gift.

Nomadic Audio Speakase

Imagine stepping off a plane in a foreign city and getting straight into party mode with a suitcase that doubles as a booming Hi-Fi quality speaker. The Nomadic Audio Speakase is a fashionable suitcase that transforms into a powerful, portable Bluetooth loudspeaker with a full, rich tone depth. For the traveller that’s serious about music, gifts don’t get much better. If you can’t afford the high price tag, consider picking up a Global Travel Card from Atlas Currency Exchange instead.  

Electronic bookmark

For the frequent visitor of the City of Gold Coast Library, an electronic bookmark lets a reader understand the true meaning of a sentence. Not only will your recipient never lose their place when reading, they’ll never lose the meaning the author is trying to convey. All they have to do is type in the word and get instant clarification.


The HitchSafe is a must have for every surfer that drives to the beach. The HitchSafe slides into a standard Hitch Receiver on a truck, SUV or van and offers a secure place to keep keys, credit cards, cash and a driver’s license. To access the safe you simply release the rubber dust cover, enter in your personal 4 digit code and then release the drawer. Alternatively, talk to the team at Key to Heel My Sole who can offer some simpler options for keeping important items safe.

Light Therapy Device

From hair removal gadgets to hot air brushes and facial rejuvenation tools there have been a ton of fantastic beauty gadgets released in 2018. For the person who takes pride in their appearance, a light therapy wand will stimulate collagen production and address common concerns such as crow’s feet and wrinkles. Light therapy treatment is great for all skin types and makes a perfect gift for the beauty conscious - especially if you pair it with a voucher for Endota Spa.
