Check Out Apple’s 2017 Holiday Gift Guide

It’s that time of year when Apple releases its holiday gift guide that features the company’s most popular products ranging from accessories to MacBooks and everything in between.

If you’re not sure what to get your family and friends this holiday season, you might want to take a look at Apple’s 2017 edition of its holiday guide. The company released the guide to give consumers an idea of what to buy this holiday season for loved ones or possibly themselves.

The guide starts off showing iPhone accessories including the AirPods and a couple of cases for the iPhone X, then the company highlights a few Apple Watch Series 3 bands, several cases for the 10.5-inch iPad Pro and some accessories for the device. Apple also highlights a 13-inch laptop sleeve and Beats Studio 3 wireless headphones for MacBook owners. Last but not least, Apple shows a few third-party products such as Belkin wireless charging pad, a DJI drone, and Sphero’s R2-D2 drone.

In addition to the holiday guide, Apple extended its holiday return policy by allowing customers who buy an Apple product between Nov. 15 and Dec. 25 will have until Jan. 8, 2018 to return the item, which is longer than the regular 14-day return policy. To check out the entire 2017 holiday gift guide, you can head over to Apple’s official website.

The guide is anchored by the new iPhone X, and also highlights the Apple Watch Series 3, iPad Pro, MacBook Pro, and the new 4K Apple TV. The gift guide also includes information about accessories for each Apple device, all listed handily just below the headlining device.

In addition to Apple-made accessories, such as iPhone cases, AirPods, and Beats headphones, the guide also features third-party add-ons and toys, including Sphero’s R2-D2 Droid, the new Mavic Pro drone, The Lifeprint Photo and Video Printer, and much more.

A separate “More Gifts” section offers gift idea at a variety of prices and for various gift recipient ages.

Apple’s usual extended return period is in effect for the holidays, with most products and accessories purchased between November 15 and December 25, 2017 eligible for return until January 8, 2018. The extended return policy is available in the United States, Australia, the UK, Canada, Germany, France, Sweden, the Netherlands, Hong Kong, and Japan. Apple also features free two-day shipping on all online purchases.

While Apple will likely offer a Black Friday sale next week, on Friday, November 24. Usually Apple’s Black Friday deals are nothing to get really excited about. Last year, Apple offered Apple store gift cards worth up to $150 with the purchase of some products.
