Look at the following list to know what item you should buy for what kind of person:
They are best suited for students in high school, college or university. You don’t have to buy the latest smartphone because it will be very expensive. Search for the ones that landed in the market a year before; probably the smartphones that arrived in year 2013. Students mostly need to communicate with each other and keep in touch with their families. However, they can use internet for sending emails or browsing on the internet or visiting their social networking websites. You can give these to people in jobs too. However, you wouldn’t want to give it to an old fellow for its complexities. Best things to look for in a smartphone are Wi-Fi, good camera, big memory, fluid touchscreen, etc.
They are best suited for business professionals and people working in the offices. They are mostly used for online video chatting, sending and receiving emails, taking quick notes, storing office related files and working on similar office related work. Some people would use them primarily for watching video clips and movies on the go but they are not best suited for this purpose and are rarely used in that manner. However, you can always gift a tablet to a student of the college or university who is allowed to use it in the class. Many universities are now encouraging students to use tablets for their educational needs. Best tablets are ones with features between big tablets and smartphones. They have relatively smaller size and are easy to carry around. Best things to look for in a tablet are a fluid touchscreen, applications for taking quick notes, business application compatibility, front and rear camera, Wi-Fi, long battery life, etc.
Laptops are great devices that are getting smaller in order to compete with the tablets. However, they haven’t lost their value and are still respected for offering more features, ports, functions and faster speeds. When buying laptops the specifications matter the most. Make sure to pick a fast processor combined with a good RAM size. You now have options to buy touchscreen laptops too. They can also be bought based on who you are gifting them to. There are different laptops designed for different people. Some are good for executives, some suit students and some are designed for gamers and graphic designers.

Convertible laptops are probably the best IT gifts you can buy today. They take away the hassle of deciding whether to go for a laptop or a tablet. These laptops can be converted into tablets by dislodging their screens. They are small in size and have thin structures for easy of portability. They are always touchscreen and have a very light weight. People who do a lot of business traveling and have to do a lot of emailing and typing on the go are the best people you should give a convertible laptop as a gift to.

For an executive, it is best that you go for convertible laptops. Tablets are also a great choice for office workers.
