It’s that time of year again! If you’re still looking for the perfect gift, these gadgets and gifts are sure to be a hit. So read on for some select gift ideas (and your opportunity to support the site – thanks Amazon!). These are all gifts for a mid-range budget and I’ve left out the obvious Macbooks and iPod picks – Apple will be reminding you about those anyway…
Since the holiday season is already well underway, without further ado here are my picks:
Apple Magic Mouse
Love it or hate it – the Magic Mouse addresses a lot of its predecessor’s shortcomings and looks fantastic. Its dust-resistant, buttonless design looks gorgeous and is fairly practical (well, for an Apple mouse…). Seems to be fairly difficult to find at the moment, so if you haven’t already got one – hurry!
The SR60 has been called “The best deal in audio”, and it’s hard to disagree. I own the predecessors (SR60 – minus the “i”) and whilst chunky and retro, they sound great and are comfortable to wear. These are the perfect cans for listening around the house and offer a sound quality that can rival ‘phones with double the price tag.
Logitech Pure-Fi Anywhere
These speakers aren’t cheap – but they definitely offer great value for money. I’ve dragged mine all around most of the parks and barbecue spots in Munich and they haven’t got a scratch on them. They sound great and the integrated li-ion battery means you never have to worry about buying AAs again. The line-in jack lets you hook up other audio sources and the remote control and carrying case complete the package.
