November 24, 2022 0 By Nicki Sun

The Holiday Season has arrived and I’ve got you covered! If you’re looking for the top tech deals for the content creator(s) in your family and/or circle of friends (on and off Amazon), you’ve come to the right spot on the internet to make gift-giving a breeze!

From the creator who just started to the creator who may have it all, I’ve partnered with some friends of mine, in addition to sharing the tech deals shared with me (shh!). From early Black Friday and Cyber Monday deals, to the end of the year, be sure to check back frequently as I’ll be continuing to update this page. You might even want to stock up early for those birthdays right around the corner 😉

Rewatch my Holiday LIVESTREAM on Amazon!

This past #GivingTuesday, I shared some of my favorite tech deals available on Amazon, while providing live demonstrations for everything on my Amazon storefront page.

Rather browse than watch? Go straight to my curated list on Amazon here!


For the livestreamers in your life looking to take their livestream to the next level, here are a few products that allow you to do WAY more than just livestream!

1. Yolobox Pro

This all-in-one, portable, multi-cam live streaming studio encoder, recorder, and switcher truly does it ALL! For the one-person band looking to update their entire production to make it feel like there’s a whole team behind you, the Yolobox Pro is IT! With THREE, full HDMI inputs, you can connect up to 3 cameras. The 8 inch touchscreen design makes it easy to switch between cameras, while also being able to stream simultaneously to three platforms for FREE! No streaming service subscription needed, unless you want to stream to more than three platforms. With Wi-Fi, ethernet, mobile hotspot, SIM card, and tethering abilities available, you can take your livestream ANYWHERE. I’ve been using the Yolobox Pro for all of my livestreams on Amazon. But they also have the Yolobox (2 HDMI inputs), and Yolobox Mini (1 HDMI input) available as well.

Currently, the price is not reflecting on Amazon, but the Yolobox Pro, originally $1298, will be $999 during Black Friday and Cyber Monday!

2. Teradek Wave

I recently got to check out Teradek’s 5-in-1 livestreaming monitor, the Teradek Wave! Check out my recent review and guide on how to setup your first livestream using the Teradek Wave on YouTube. And don’t forget to subscribe!

Subscriptions (& Online Tools)

A huge cost for creators is also all the annual, and monthly subscriptions in being able to create and host their content online. While there are a ton of free resources available, here are some professional sites (that I use) in order to run my video production and channel.

1. Canva

Designing like a pro has never been easier. Removing the background in photos for those YouTube thumbnails, banners, and cover photos? Easy! Resizing graphics to account for all the different sizes needed when posting across all your social media platforms? One button! Access to TONS of templates and tools to customize to your brand, colors, and theme? Ready!

While Canva’s free version is a powerful tool already, the above features mentioned only come with having an annual Canva PRO account. This has been worth every single penny!

To purchase a Canva PRO account, which also allows up to two team members (you can essentially gift PRO access to two other email accounts), use my link here!
