Christmas Gift Guide 2022 – Big Boy Toys

As a kid, there was nothing better than roaming through the toy section at the department store. Aisles and aisles of everything you’ve ever wanted. Well, now that we’re a little older, we want to help you relive those childhood memories with our Big Boy Toys 2022 Christmas Gift Guide. Because who said we had to stop playing with toys once we grew up? Not sure what Big Boy Toys are? Think F1 simulation racing wheels, top-of-the-line controllers, electric motorcycles and scooters, home theatre and audio devices, and even an automated robotic lawnmower! Grab some big boy toys; it’s time to play.

Despite ticking all the Tele boxes – lightweight body, dual single-coil pickups, three-way switch, and hardtail bridge – this is remarkably affordable, making it perfect for beginners or those looking to add some Tele twang to their existing guit-arsenal. – AUD$329

GoPro Hero 11 Black

GoPro turned it all the way up for creators, outdoing themselves once again with their latest action camera release, adding 10-bit colour, a wider and more immersive field of view, and an enhanced level of stabilisation to the already impressive levels we found on the Hero 10 Black. Bolstering its already incredible feature list is HyperSmooth 5.0 technology, in-camera 360-degree Horizon Lock, three new Night Effect Time Lapse presets, TimeWarp 3.0 captures at 5.3K, plus simpler camera control with Easy and Pro modes. Oh, and they finally boosted battery life, extending recording times up to 38 per cent in HERO11 Black. As small as the GoPro is, it’s still the mightiest action camera money can buy. Until the next iteration, that is. See you next year when we invariably add the HERO12 to our 2023 gift guides!– AU$869.94

Bang & Olufsen Beosound Theatre Soundbar

When this bad boy dropped back in September, we said the Bang & Olufsen Beosound Theatre Soundbar is an investment for decades to come. Because when it comes to sound, the Danish brand Bang & Olufsen doesn’t mess around. Experience 12 speaker drivers, two custom-made 6.5-inch woofers, and 800 watts of amplification power, delivering up to 112dB of sound pressure. It’s more than enough to fill your viewing space with rich audio waves. And if you’re wondering where the weird shape comes from, the Bang & Olufsen soundbar is a modular design intended to empower you to update rather than replace the soundbar over time, with included side wings designed to fit 55-inch, 65-inch or 77-inch panels. It’s a big boy sound toy that will last well past your next TV upgrade. – AU$13,650
