The best smartphones, tablets and smartwatches to give as gifts

It wasn’t that long ago that to play some of the most popular VR titles out there, you had to splurge on a system that connected directly to your PC. The Oculus Quest is proof that those days are just about over: Its self-contained design means it’s a great choice for that special someone who needs an easy escape. It can’t do everything that more-traditional VR setups can, but beloved games like Superhot, Thumper and Beat Saber run well and look great on the Quest’s dual-OLED screens. (Don’t worry, it fits nicely over glasses too.) And since the Quest can share its video with nearby Chromecast-connected TVs, those solo experiences don’t have to stay solo for long. All told, the Quest is a fantastic bit of hardware for newcomers and early adopters craving a little more flexibility. — C.V.
