The journalists of Digitec Galaxus’s editorial team publish news, background information and authentic reviews in their fields of expertise. In the vein of Christmas spirit, they’re sharing their gift ideas with you.

A new blender for your wife, socks for your husband, a box of chocolates for Grandma – you’d be hard pressed to find more clichéd Christmas gifts than that.
