My Fav Tech Gifts from the 2016 Telus Holiday Guide

Christmas is just over a week away and there’s a good chance you still have few people on your nice list (including yourself!). 🎅🏽 Telus has a ton of amazing gifts you can buy online or from one of their interactive stores across Canada.

You’ve gotta check out the Eaton Centre store in Toronto if you haven’t yet, theres heaps of things for your home, travel, audio, AND toys, aside from phone stuff. Last year I got a Nest thermostat, amazing JBL speaker, great USB cables, and a MIP robot for the child.

Here’s a few of MY FAVS from the 2016 Telus Gift Guide. These are all things I’ve gifted or been given in the last year – Fitbit, Instax camera, BB8, and the PureGear Metallic Cable.


BB8 Sphero Robot – $189.99

Last weekend I surprised Embot with a tiny little BB8 Droit. She loves Star Wars and robots. BB8 comes with a stand for charging and connects to Force Band through the app on your phone via Bluetooth. Once connected, you use THE FORCE to push, pull, and control BB-8 like Em is doing here. She’s been having so much fun using to guide him around the house. He can easily go over carpet, rug, tile and wood floors too.

Her face! She’s concentrating so much!


Instax Mini 8 Camera – $99

This camera is great. A total hit at holiday parties and with the parents. I took photos of everyone at mums one Christmas and this year I’ve packaged up some stuff to send back to New Zealand filled with Instax prints from the last few months. You can order one of these online or pick up at a Telus store. They’ve got the Instax Mini 8 cam available in Rose Gold, Blue, Black, and white. See this post for an #InstaxHolidays giveaway + Twitter party details for tonight!

Fitbit 2 Charge  – $199

I gifted mum one of these for her birthday in September and she was so jazzed about it. SHe’s been wanting one for a while and was excited to track her steps at work and throughout the day. I downloaded the Fitbit app from the PLAY Store and connected the device to mum’s Samsung in a couple minutes.


PureGear 4ft Metallic Braided Cable, Rose Gold – $24.99

I used to be losing cables and chargers all the time but this cable has been with me everywhere the last 12 months and I’m so proud to still have it. A good/unique charging comes in handy more than you know. This is what yours might look like after a lots of travel and adventure, a little run down but still working great. Piece of leather around it is a little Cord Taco from Amazon.
