Tech Guide’s 2023 12 Days of Christmas Gift Ideas – Day 7: Drones and Gadgets

DJI MINI PRO 4 – $1,119

DJI has released the Mini 4 Pro – a 249g drone that manages to pack in a premium camera and omni-directional obstacle sensing in a chassis that fits in the palm of your hand.

Weighing less than 250g means the DJI Mini 4 Pro is exempt from drone regulations in most parts of the world and doesn’t require registration.

And, according to CASA (Civil Aviation Safety Authority), being under 250g allows users to fly safely within the 5.5km range of a controlled airspace.


EMBER MUG – From $130

Ember is a designer temperature-controlled mugs in Australia so customers can keep their hot beverages at the right temperature from the first sip to the last.

Ember has a range of smart drinkware which come in three different sizes and use patented technology to control the temperature of your coffee or tea and keep it between 50-degrees and 62.5-degrees Celsius.

Under the hood, the Ember mugs utilise the latest battery technology and can maintain temperatures for up to one and a half hours with the Ember Mug 2 (10oz – 295ml) and Ember Cup and 80 minutes with the larger Ember mug 2 (14oz – 414ml).


GRID STUDIO – from $211

Grid Studio has earned a reputation for quality after offering old iPhones as works of art. This would be an ideal gift for someone who would appreciate and enjoy the nostalgic and artistic presentation of a Grid Studio product.

Their most popular products are framed iPhones going back to the original 2007 model and it has now expanded to the original iPad and the original iPod as well.

There is also a range of portable gaming devices that have been immortalised in the same way.

Dyson has applied the same engineering principles to make the Dyson Solarcycle Morph Desk Light.

The Dyson Solarcycle Morph Desk Light is the latest product in its lighting portfolio and can imitate daylight from dawn till dusk as well as delivering light in four different ways – indirect, direct for a task, as a feature light or as an ambient light.


DJI AIR 3 – From $1,699

Drones are going down the same path as smartphones when it comes to cameras – having just one is no longer enough. The new DJI Air 3 has two dual primary cameras.

It is the first dual camera model of the Air Series and it adds even more choices and functionality for aerial photographers.

Onboard is a wide-angle camera and a medium telephoto with up to 3x zoom that can produce stunning 48-megapixel images and 4K HDR videos at 60 frames per second.

The DJI Air 3 has a foldable design so when you’re done the props tuck away to make the drone a compact size – its about the size of a 1L water bottle.



Cricut has unveiled its latest smart cutting machine – the Joy Xtra – which gives users the power to start creating stickers, labels, customised t-shirts and much more straight out of the box.

Cricut has been around a long time and has released machines of various sizes, but the Joy Xtra is being described as the “Goldilocks” of smart cutting machines because it’s just right for newcomers and experts alike.

The Cricut Joy Xtra smart cutting machine can cut, write, draw and foil to make popular projects including full colour stickers, custom cards, vinyl decals, T shirts and much more.



Wellness brand Therabody got our attention with the Theragun massage device and now it has released its baby brother – the Theragun Mini 2.0 – which you can take anywhere with you.

The Theragun Mini 2.0 is a travel-sized product that offers the same percussive therapy but in a compact form factor.

And this 2.0 version is 20 per cent smaller and 30 per cent lighter than the first generation Mini.



For anyone who likes to customise their own hats or make professional looking gifts, Cricut HatPress is a perfect match. The curved, ceramic-coated heat plate creates wrinkle-free transfers and perfectly positions your hat on the form for a precise transfer every time. Create a gift or spend quality time creating matching hats for the whole family. Available at Harvey Norman and Big W 



NRGVault’s portable power stations deliver a wide range of benefits for indoors and outdoors, home or on-the-go. Portable and lighter than previous generations of mobile power, it is a great accessory to take camping to power up lighting, run a mini-fridge, portable speaker, bug zapper and even a coffee maker.

Road trippers can connect a portable fridge to keep the drinks chilled and powered devices to keep the kids entertained, while caravanning enthusiasts can complement existing built-in power with a portable power station so that coffee machines, music, fans and lighting can be taken outside of the caravan as camp is setup for the evening. Available from Harvey Norman and
