UScellular Shares the Best Tech Gifts this Holiday Season

Bring Holiday Joy to Your Friends and Family with These Hot Items

With the holiday shopping season fast approaching, it’s
never too early to begin making your list and checking it twice. Whether it’s for a loved one, a friend or a co-worker, UScellular recommends getting a head start on your shopping, which is the best way to make sure you don’t miss out on the hottest items, especially the latest tech gifts.

In fact, customers are looking to shop earlier than ever. According to the National Retail Federation, November 2020 saw an 8% increase in holiday shopping versus 2019, while December sales remained roughly the same. In addition, a Deloitte study forecasts that holiday retail shopping in 2021 is likely to increase between 7% and 9%, indicating that shoppers will be buying quickly and buying often this season.

If you’re eyeing a portable charger, the latest audio accessories or the newest Apple, Samsung or Google smartphone, UScellular has tech gift options for any wish list.

“Getting your holiday shopping done early is the best way to make sure you get everything on your list,” said Courtland Madock, vice president of marketing at UScellular. “UScellular has something to offer everyone this holiday season, from stocking-stuffers like PopSockets, to bigger-ticket items like wireless earbuds or smart watches.”

UScellular wants to spread some locally grown joy this holiday season and is offering a variety of tech gifts for those that are shopping on a budget or are looking to splurge for the holidays:

  • Under $25: Give the gift of a clean screen with the Case-Mate CLEANSCREENZ Phone Cleaning Wipes, which leave any device streak-free and helps protect against bacteria. Once your device is sanitized, add a bit of flair to your phone with a PopSockets PopGrip before taking a quick selfie with the family by the tree.
  • $50 - $100: Everyone needs a constant connection,especially while on the move. The mophie Snap Plus Wireless Charger Vent Mount has a magnetic adapter that can hold any smartphone in place, while ensuring optimal positioning for a fast charge. Another gift idea is the JBL Clip 4, which features an ultra-portable Bluetooth speaker design and has 10 hours of battery life, so your favorite holiday songs can keep playing.
  • $100 and up: Exercising can be harder during the holidays, so help someone stay on track with their fitness goals by syncing their favorite playlists with the Apple Watch Series 7 (GPS) or a Samsung Galaxy Watch4. Afterwards, they can relax by listening to their favorite artists with a pair of Apple AirPods Pro or the Samsung Galaxy Buds2 which in addition to music, are also good for long-distance video calls to connect with those who aren’t home for the holidays.
