With less than three weeks to go until Christmas, you might be starting to feel the pressure. Finding the perfect gift is never easy, especially if it means braving the shops and the last-minute rush. Fortunately, we’ve got everything covered this year with our comprehensive printer Christmas gift guide. From the amateur photographer with pictures to frame, to the best friend that could use a bit of organisation in their life. No matter who’s still left on your Christmas list, we’ve got something for everyone. The best part? Simply order online and avoid the shops entirely.
For the busy family
Busy families need a printer that can keep up. From mum and dad’s business reports to the latest school project, give the gift of versatility this Christmas. The perfect family printer should deliver speedy prints for last minute homework, a range of printing options to meet any nasty surprises and connectivity to suit the whole family. Sound like a tall order? Luckily, we’ve got a printer that does all this and more.
The HP Officejet 7612 offers superior office printing in a sleek and compact design perfect for the home. Colour wide formatting means anyone can print in stunning fast-drying, water-resistant vivid colour and up to a staggering 13 x 18 inches. Combined with borderless printing this makes the Officejet 7612 one of our most versatile printers yet. Never be surprised by homework again and easily print any flyers, brochures and reports that the school can think of.
One of the newer printers in our range, this HP Officejet also delivers complete connectivity to meet the ever-changing demands of a busy family unit. From tech-savvy teenagers to on-the-go parents, everyone can enjoy effortless mobile printing along with standard wireless and ethernet capabilities. With time-saving office features including an automatic document feeder, fast print speeds and double-sided printing, this printer will seamlessly fit into any busy household.
For the avid photographer
In the age of the selfie, we’re all an amateur photographer at heart. For those looking to make their passion into a full-fledged hobby, give the gift of photo lab quality. The perfect photo printer for amateur photographers needs to deliver all the stunning quality and bonus features of a professional printer in a compact design for the home.
Stepping up to fulfil this challenging Christmas wish list is the small but mighty Canon PIXMA IX6850. Don’t be fooled by the sleek and ultra-compact footprint of this powerful machine. Despite its size, this printer still delivers A3+ borderless printing. It also features surprising paper handling including the full range of Canon creative papers from photo stickers to t-shirt transfer. From photographer to designer, enjoy exclusive creative content including poster and business templates from Creative Park Premium.
What really makes this printer a photographer’s dream is its innovative 5 single ink system, designed to produce stunning visuals as efficiently as possible. Dye colour inks produce beautiful photo-lab quality images while pigment black ink means even budding photographers can still print crisp and sharp text. Plus, with the single-ink system, you only need to change the colour that runs out, and optional XL inks deliver significantly more pages and offer cost savings of up to 30%. Now that’s efficient.
For the productive student
Christmas hand-ins may be over but next term is just around the corner. For those students burning the midnight oil and juggling deadlines, give the gift of productivity. The perfect uni printer must have all the speed needed to print out last minute essays and beat those pesky printer queues at the library, while also delivering long term cost efficiency.
If we could give the Brother MFC-J4420DW a grade it would definitely be an A+, or should we say an A3? That’s because this affordable printer handles A4 and A3 prints, and still has room to pack in print, scan, copy and fax capability. To suit the need of all tech-savvy students, this printer delivers complete connectivity with support for both AirPrint and Google Cloud Print. Plus, no risk of living off beans and toast to save for printer ink. With a robust design and 1,200 page high-yield ink cartridges, this printer is surprisingly future proof and cost efficient.
The big winner for this printer is its speed and productivity. Able to print up to 35 pages per minute, it’s well worth avoiding the printer queues when a last-minute deadline is at stake. Additional features take productivity to the next level, including automatic double-sided printing and advanced scanning that skips blanks pages and enables edits of scanned hard copies in Microsoft word. Perfect for digitising and annotating hand-outs, it’s a wonder this printer is under £150.
For the organised friend
We’ve all got that type A friend, and we’ve all got a friend that could do with a little more type A. Either way, why not give the gift of organisation this Christmas. A label printer could be the gift they’ve been waiting for, ideal for organising life around the home and the office. Whether it’s finally sorting out that extensive CD and records collection or simply getting all that paperwork in order, the perfect label printer needs to be portable and efficient, with labels that are easy to make and made to last.
With the Brother PT-H500 getting organised doesn’t have to be a challenge or a chore. This handheld label printer is completely portable and made to be used around the home and office. Despite its small design, the built-in keyboard and display make it quick and easy to create simple labels on the spot. With an automatic cutter, this is a no-fuss solution to all your organisational problems.
For those type A personalities, the PT-H500 can be connected to a computer with a simple USB connection to add images, frames and barcodes along with stylish text thanks to the installed True Type fonts. You can also make your gift extra special by adding additional labels with your gift, available in a wide range of colours and sizes to suit any labelling need. Plus, get labels that are built to last with the Brother P-touch laminated TZe tapes, a thin yet extremely strong label which also protects text from liquids, temperatures, chemicals and even sunlight damage. It really is an organisers dream.
