What’s a movie without the sound? A lot of people don’t have a good speaker system for their television, which is why it makes a great gift for the holidays. Whether you have a large budget and can invest in a complete home theater system, or a lower budget to get them started with surround sound speakers, your friends and family will notice the difference in either upgrade.

Another fun holiday gift idea for loved ones who love technology and entertainment are video games. Now, if you’re shopping for someone older, you may not think they’d be into this kind of gift. However, video games encompass more than just your average Play Station 5 games. Consider virtual reality headsets — new ways of experiencing games — or arcade machines, which provide a classical experience for older and younger generations alike.
