Gadget Gift Ideas for Wedding Anniversary

Change is inevitable -- both in your marriage and in technological advances. Changes come in physical form in both cases, with several patterns or courses of change that take place over the years.

When it comes to tech gifts, these changes are more than welcome, allowing us to increase our enjoyment of what is on offer since they come with the latest innovations. Here are some tech gift ideas for an anniversary that will show your love.

1. Smartwatch

A smartwatch, which can be seen as a modern-day gift of time, will display not only the time but also a variety of other data. They collect sports statistics and also come with heart health diagnostic tools, including an ECG app. For husbands who are into hiking, most of them also have a built-in compass that can come really handy.

The Apple Watch 6 due out in September 2020 is reported to have a small LED display and improved sleep tracking. The current Apple Watch 5 standard is aluminium but there are also stainless steel, titanium, and a special edition ceramic models. If you want to follow a traditional or modern wedding anniversary gift guide in which each anniversary is symbolised by a different material, the Apple Watch with its different colors and materials fits your 9th (pottery), 10th (aluminium) and 11th (steel) and 25th (silver) anniversaries.

You may also consider smartwatches made by respected brands like Samsung, Fitbit and Garmin which are also feature-packed. Fitbit Versa is made specifically for women making it an ideal gift for wives who live an active lifestyle or those who are health-conscious.

2. Wireless Earbuds

Handsfree earbuds like the Powerbeats 4 - from Apple's Beats accessories brands - let you take calls, skip songs, and adjust the volume of your music at the touch of a button. Great for sporty couples, these earbuds are great workout companions since they are resistant to both sweat and water.

Powered by Apple's H1 chip, Powerbeats 4 come with super fast Bluetooth connectivity, supports Siri, and has 15 hours of battery life on a single charge with just five-minute charge that delivering 1.5 hours of music playback.

3. Google Nest Hub Max

For the best digital picture frame at home to showcase the photos you have stored on your smartphone or on the cloud, consider Google’s Nest Hub Max, which also works as a convenient smart home controller and smart alarm clock.

The Max has a 10-inch display, stereo speakers, and a camera for video calls and home security, making it a real upgrade from the earlier Home Hub. On top of that, the screen adapts to the lighting in your home, so photos look like actual prints. This is definitely the perfect gadget for the kitchen or main living area.

4. Camping / Shower Speaker

A must-have for couples who love listening to music as much as they love outdoor activities like spelunking, trekking, or hiking, an IP67 Certified Dust and Water Resistant wireless speaker will surely make such activities more fun and memorable.

Tronsmart Element Splash is one of the most affordable good-quality waterproof wireless speakers that are available here in the Philippines. This one sells for less than PHP 1,000 through official retail channels.

5. Wireless Noise Cancelling On-Ear Headphones

Creating memories together as a couple is essential in keeping a relationship strong. But spending time alone is also crucial in replenishing our energy and nourishing our soul to be a better partner. If you or your loved one's idea of spending "me time" is listening to music away from the hustle and bustle of the outside world, then a good pair of wireless noise-cancelling on-ear headphones is certainly an ideal wedding anniversary gadget gift idea.

One of the most popular high-end models currently is Beats Studio 3 headphones which come in various colours and patterns, including Midnight Black. It supports adaptive noise cancellation as well as 22 hours of music playback from a full charge.

6. Turntable

Collecting vinyl albums or LP records is starting to become trendy again especially among audiophiles. If you and your loved one are into singing along or dancing to your favorite love songs, you can spice things up by celebrating your anniversary with an all-new turntable! Whether you like Jazz or Pop Ballads, you will surely make every music listening experience more romantic by making an effort to play physical records on this device. Choose a turntable that can play all speeds, meaning 33 ⅓, 45 and 78 rpm so there’s no vinyl you cannot play.

So there you have it! These are the TechPinas Gadget Gift Ideas for lovely couples - techy or not - who are celebrating their memorable wedding anniversary.
