How times have changed! Christmas is now all about tech, and old and young alike are desperate to wake up to the latest gadgets on that very special morning.The trend, it seems, was started by Polaroid back in the 1970s when, with their latest camera, they boasted 2000 technological advances and made it the must-have Christmas gift. As time has gone on, Christmas has become the time of year when companies release their next big thing and make sure that we all vying for it to appear under our tree.
So with Christmas 2020 just around the corner, what are the gadgets that we’re all hoping to receive from Santa?
