How to buy a tablet as a gift
Who are you shopping for?
Whether you need to find the best tablet for your mom or the best tablets for kids, you’ll discover one that fits the needs of whoever you’re shopping for. There really is something for everyone. Think about your gift recipient’s lifestyle and interests to decide which features you should prioritize.
Look for clues.
Does your gift recipient already own a tablet? If it’s more than two years old, an upgraded version will be much appreciated. If they’ve mentioned why they love it or hate it, that may also provide some vital clues on what they would appreciate in a new tablet. If they don’t have a tablet, don’t fret. You can check out their smartphone to figure out what they like when it comes to the operating system, brand, and features they use the most.
Different operating system, different results.
You can easily narrow down your potential choices by operating system. The many iterations of the iPad run on iOS, exclusive to Apple. Chances are if your gift recipient is an Apple fan, you’ll know it. Android tablets are available from a variety of brands and let you customize and personalize your device to make it your own. Windows tablets have a familiar PC-like interface with lots of productivity apps, so they’re perfect for answering emails or getting demanding tasks done for work or school.
Fit your budget.
Once you decide what you’re willing to spend, you’ll have a clearer picture of the options available to you. High-end tablets are equipped with impressive specs that make them even more powerful than some laptops. More affordable tablets have the features you need to take on basic tasks like surfing the web, listening to music, and watching movies. Don’t go overboard on the specs if you don’t think they’ll be used, but make sure your chosen device is up to the task.
Consider it a gift to the family.
A tablet makes a great gift for the entire family, whether it’s your family or someone else’s. A tablet is easy to share and helps everyone in the household stay connected, entertained, and informed. They also fit seamlessly into a connected home and can be equipped with complimentary apps that connect to your television, computer, phone, and even appliances.
