The best iPhones to gift this Christmas

An iPhone remains at the top of many peoples’ Christmas lists, and there are plenty of reasons for this. Apple consistently takes the lead in technology and style. Also, their advanced features, such as superior camera quality and durability, make them not just a gadget but a reliable day-to-day companion, enhancing their appeal as a meaningful gift.

The iPhone 15 is an excellent gift for this festive season. With 6.1-inch and 6.7-inch models offering the Dynamic Island feature, a spectacle of performance and visual delight awaits. It’s perfect for everything from capturing high-res Christmas selfies to streaming your favourite holiday movies on its Super Retina XDR display.

Alternatively, the iPhone 13 Mini makes an excellent Christmas treat for those looking for a cheaper, more compact device. Its smaller size is coupled with a fantastic camera and ample storage, starting at 128GB. Not only does it boast performance and features rivalling its larger counterparts, but it also has a significantly improved battery life compared to the brand’s older devices.

Apple’s newer models, such as the iPhone 15 series, come with a hefty price tag, which is usually unwelcome during Christmas when there’s so much to buy. This is where we can help! If you’re thinking, “Hmm, I could sell my iPhone to help pay for a new model”, you’d be right, and Mazuma is the best place to go. Our services offer individuals an opportunity to trade in their old iPhones for cash quickly and easily. The process is completely streamlined; once on the site, you can find your iPhone model, get an immediate quote for it, and, if you’re satisfied, proceed to ship your device for free. Upon receiving and inspecting the device, we offer fast payment options, turning your old phone into cash in no time, ready for you to purchase your new iPhone, whether for a loved one or a treat for yourself.

Gift a Samsung phone this Christmas

Samsung released some of the best Android phones in 2023, making them a superb choice for popping under the tree this Christmas.

Take the Samsung Galaxy Flip5, for example. Although it was released in 2023, this phone offers a little piece of past technology and would make a perfect gift for millennials and others missing the novel design of the flip phone. However, despite its nostalgic inspiration, it boasts some impressive features, such as Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 chipset, enlarged Flex Window, and a breathtaking set of cameras.

Another Samsung model making it to our gift guide this year is the Galaxy S23 Plus. In a snapshot, this model is the perfect Christmas delight owing to its top-tier camera and expansive screen. Expect unmatched multitasking and a design that turns heads. And who wouldn’t want a smartphone that could last through a Christmas blockbuster marathon without a charge? Fun, functional, and oh-so-chic, the Galaxy S23 Plus makes for an impressive Christmas gift or splendid self-treat.

And don’t forget, just like Apple, you can use our Samsung trade-in services and swap your old device for cash to use towards your new model! Every penny counts during the festive season, so this is the best way to upgrade your phone or surprise a loved one this Christmas without breaking the bank.

Android phones to add to your Christmas list

Apple and Samsung remain fighting for the top spot when it comes to the biggest smartphone brands, but this doesn’t mean you should forget about the other Android options on the market! From Google to Huawei and everything in between, here’s a rundown of our top Android smartphones to either gift this Christmas or add to your wishlist.

Google 7a

Efficient, stylish, and a true visual delight, the Google Pixel 7a is definitely your Christmas gift solution. Loved for its bright, interactive display, impressive camera, and Snapdragon G2 chipset, it handles tasks like a dream. If you’re looking to cut costs, this phone is perfect as it’s budget-friendly, packing a performance punch without breaking the bank.


The POCO X5 Pro would make an excellent present (or treat-yourself gift), blending designed elegance with performance. Its superior screen, robust chipset, and impressive camera cater to all technology desires, while its added durability features provide lasting value. Notably budget-friendly, considering its performing features, the POCO X5 Pro is a standout choice for a satisfying, high-quality Christmas present.

Huawei Mate 40 Pro 256GB

The Huawei Mate 40 Pro 256GB blends performance and aesthetics and is backed by a high-speed Kirin 9000 processor and a pro-grade camera system.
