You want your gift to be the best one, your recipient’s favorite. The one they’ll talk about for weeks on end. Let us spark some gift ideas with Best Buy’s just released 2017 Top Tech Gifts List, a collection of 30 must-have gadgets that our tech experts are excited about this holiday season.
But we didn’t stop there. We dug deeper, surveying people to determine what they think about tech this season. They told us the following:
- Married vs. Single. Married couples want TVs more than other tech gifts, while single men want a laptop or tablet, and single women hope to get a smartphone.
- Sports fans want TVs. No surprise here. Those who love sports want a TV — and a big one — more than any other tech gift. But non-sports fans would prefer a smartphone, tablet or laptop this year.
- Do YOU like tech? Self-reported tech enthusiasts said they enjoy gift shopping more than the average consumer. They tend to buy gifts for themselves more often, too.

And best yet, you can get free shipping on these and all Best Buy products all season long — from now until Christmas Day.
As always, don’t forget that Geek Squad can help during this busy holiday season. Agents are ready to assist in stores, online, by phone and in your home.

The Best Buy Holiday Index is a survey of 1,500 American adults via web-based panel Oct. 18-23, 2017. Questions are specifically written to ask which products people want to receive, and are not intended to forecast or influence sales of any particular product.
