Apple iPhone 8 – from $1079

When we mentioned the Apple store above, we didn’t mean to eliminate Apple products from consideration. And an iPhone is almost always a welcome gift. But which one? You can still buy an iPhone 6s if you want, or the iPhone 5-shaped iPhone SE (it’s way better than a 5, of course). Or a 7 or even the flash new iPhone X.

But we’re going to suggest the iPhone 8. The technology is up to date and the price isn’t too over the top. As our review suggests, if you’re buying for someone who already has an iPhone 7, the improvement may not be enough. But if they have a 6s or earlier, go for it.
