The undisputed, most-requested gift this holiday season is by far the next-gen consoles: the PlayStation 5 and the new Xbox. Both consoles released this month and immediately sold out at every retailer that had them for sale. Amazon, Walmart, and Kohl’s have all had to email customers to notify them their orders would be canceled due to the companies not being able to receive enough units to fill preorders. So, clearly, securing one for a gift makes you the best friend, lover, or family member of all time.
If you really want to put a smile on someone’s face, just head over to Stock-X where they have both the Playstation 5 & Xbox Series X for resell pricing. Yes, you’ll be paying more than retail, but coming through during a drought for a loved one will make you their favorite person of the year maybe even all time.
Connectivity is the gift that keeps on giving–Especially when you think about how much time the average person spends consuming content. With Youtube, Netflix, ESPN, and Disney+, the average person spends over $20 a month on content subscriptions to watch from their phone. Many have no clue you can watch these same things on their TVs. Yes, smart TVs exist, but no one is replacing their entire TV just for apps.
Luckily for you, you can provide a way to get them off the phone and on the TV without replacing the whole thing. For the iPhone users in your life, the Apple TV 4K will have them going crazy with how much easier you just made their entire existence. You can also mirror your phone to the Apple TV and also play your music for those Sunday morning house cleaning Jam Sessions. If $179 is too steep and you want to give the same kind of gift, the Firestick also gets the job done.
