Thinking about giving your loved one some tech gift this coming holiday season? Check out our collection of insanely expensive tech gifts. But you know, we don’t really recommend them unless you have a bottomless wallet or big savings, of course.
Last year’s holiday season recorded a whopping $135.35 billion on online sales in the US alone, according to Statista. It’s almost ten times the increase from $15.81 billion in 2018. With this in mind, there’s no telling about how 2020 online sales will perform.
Despite the effects of the Coronavirus pandemic, online selling had really gone up, especially when the lockdown started. On the other hand, online purchases during this special season tend to go toward new tech. Unfortunately, not all tech gadgets are promising. In fact, there are diminishing returns with overpriced, yet inferior items.
This is often the case for digital toys since they depreciate their value once the box is opened. With that being said, we gathered some of the most expensive tech gifts available in the market today. While it’s absurdly expensive, people covet them nonetheless. Make sure to check our list and maybe you’ll find something that you like.
