The COVID-19 pandemic has tragically derailed all our plans for 2020, and it also changed a lot of things, including how we will celebrate Christmas this year. But despite that, people are still looking forward to the holidays and looking for last-minute Christmas gifts for their loved ones.

If you're looking for Christmas gift ideas for your techie family member or friend, here are some new tech and gadgets that came out this year.

Next-Gen Console

Sony and Microsoft have released their next-generation consoles this November, so if you're looking for the perfect gift for a gamer, then the Sony PlayStation 5 or the Microsoft Series X or Series S are an ideal choice.

But there's a catch: these consoles are sold out, and there's a lack of units even in the US. So to get one for Christmas, you'll have to be on the lookout for an available console. You can use a console stock availability bot to know where you can get one as soon as restocks are in.

Self-Sanitizing Water Bottle

If you have an athletic friend who is also into techie things but also keeps their health a priority, then the LARQ Movement self-sanitizing water bottle is an excellent Christmas choice. It comes with a germ-killing, odor-fighting UV-light in the cap.

It's perfect when everyone is more conscious about germs and viruses these days.

Smart Writing Set

This unique solution is perfect for stationery lovers who love jotting down notes on a notebook like the good old days. The Moleskine Smart Writing Set Ellipse includes a smart pen that copies and digitizes what you write in a notebook to your smartphone in real-time.

You can buy a set via the Moleskine website.

Smart Fragrance Diffuser

If you're looking for a Christmas gift for a homeowner, why not consider the MOODO Smart Home Fragrance Diffuser? It's an automatic, app-controlled fragrance diffuser that mixes scents together so you can have the perfect fragrance for your home.

You can choose from four themed sets that you can mix around to find the perfect homey scent. Plus, you can get it via Amazon.

Phone Sanitizer and Charger

2020 has made everyone practically a germaphobe, and for the right reason. The novel coronavirus can live on surfaces for days, increasing the risks of catching COVID-19. And since phones can get real dirty real quick, it's always great to sanitize them frequently.

You can use the PhoneSoap 3, a gadget that emits UVC light that can eliminate germs, bacteria, and viruses from your iPhone or Android device. You can even charge your device while using it.

Smart Garden

The pandemic has forced us all to stay indoors, and what better way to spend the indoors than to binge-watch, play some games, and grow plants. But if you don't have the green thumb to grow one but still want a sustainable lifestyle, the Smart Garden 3 will do it for you.

Basically, Smart Garden 3 tends to itself, and you need a little tending to it for it to grow some fresh herbs or vegetables in your home.
