10 exceptional and entirely useful gifts to pop in those Christmas stockings

Brought to you by Vodafone Ireland

What to put in the stocking? That is the question.


This year, to make Christmas even more fun and festive, why not give a gift that is practical, efficient, shiny and new, or, perhaps a gift that motivates us to the max. We're talking about the very latest in tech, and oh boy, are these mighty impressive.

Whether you want to treat a special someone or self-gift (equally as important if you ask us) we highly recommend the below. Better still, you can simply click on the item name to see it in our Vodafone Pop-Up Shop at her.ie. Simply visit our homepage, click the window seen on the right of the screen to enter the shop, click on 'Stocking Fillers,' and find your chosen tech gift!

Fitbit Versa 3 (€249)


Now, while we consider winter our bulking season, you or yours may have some very admirable ideas when it comes to keeping fit and healthy. The Fitbit Versa 3 is a perfect size and it's lightweight. Track those workout stats and see how you continue to progress — it's sure to be immensely rewarding.

Samsung Galaxy Watch 3 (€499)


Beautiful with a more sleek and classic look, the Samsung Galaxy Watch 3 has the ability to text your mates, pay for your coffee in the morning and indeed, tell the time.

iFrogz Airtime Pro Bluetooth Earbuds (€49.90)

It's neat and compact, gives crystal clear sound and enters pairing mode automatically when the earbuds are removed from their charging case. Users can enjoy hands-free phone calls with the integrated mic and 20 hours of battery life. They're also IPX-4 sweat resistant so they'll withstand light rain and a jog. Very handy indeed. Get them by visiting our Vodafone Pop-Up Shop.


Huawei Watch GT2 (€149) and Huawei Watch GT2e

Huawei has some of the best tech on the market and its smartwatches are no different.

The GT2 (left) has a more classic, formal design than its successor, while the more contemporary and sporty-looking GT2e (right) is perfect for those looking for something a little less obvious.


Both watches will track workouts with precision while monitoring heart-rate, plus, there are tonnes of other features like bluetooth calling, in-device music and more.

Samsung Galaxy Buds Live (€219)

Aren't they pretty? Like little beans.


So, they're noise-cancelling (why not try cancelling out the roars of the electric carving knife on Christmas?), they come in three different colours (bronze, black and white) and they've got superb in-call ability with three built-in microphones. Quality.

And plenty more quality right here at our Vodafone Pop-Up Shop.

Otterbox Powerbank 10K 18W (€20)

The day will come, friends, when once more, we find ourselves lost, alone and confused, with zero battery power to call our mates during our favourite music festival. An awfully handy gift, the Otterbox Powerbank is a lifesaver!

Google Nest Audio (€99)

Some of the best smart speakers on the market, this discreet home audio system can be controlled by your smartphone, twinned for surround sound, easily moved from room to room and the sound quality — most importantly — is top-notch. Perfect for someone who enjoys a home filled with great music. Find them here at our Vodafone Pop-Up Shop.

Apple AirPods (€199)

Apple's AirPods will very quickly become a piece of tech you won't be able to live without. You can listen continuously for five hours on a full charge and the sound is crystal clear. Joyous.

Phillips NeoPix Easy 2 Projector  (€159)

Netflix bingers, match-day lovers and countless more will find this baby incredibly handy! With a bigger screen, more can join in on the fun. Terrific for Christmas and, just think of the summer months too, in the sunshine, viewing your favourite TV/online moments with the projector outdoors. Maybe even with a friendly little neighbourhood gathering. Fantastic!

Beats Flex All-Day Wireless Earphones (€59)

Beats Flex boasts superb stereo separation with a rich and precise base. Users will enjoy up to 12 hours of listening time for all-day use and if a little extra power is needed, opt for a 10-minute fast fuel charge, giving one and a half hours of playback when the battery is low. So in those desperate times, you're entirely covered. Besides the crisp sound, we're loving that vibrant colour too!

Well then, time to fill those stockings with the best of the best by visiting our Vodafone Pop-Up Shop on her.ie and make this Christmas the most magical yet.
