Christmas is but 9 days away. I am not sure if your company is doing a gift exchange or Secret Santa practice. If you happen to be the one to get a gift for a lady who happen to be a techie....or you just wanna surprise her with a gadget, here are some ideas.
- BEYERDYNAMIC DTX 501P PORTABLE HEADPHONES
Chances are, she listens to music on her Iphone or Android phone. There is also quite a good chance she uses the horrible earphones that comes with those phones. Liberate her from those awful sounding earphones. The DTX 501P will be her great music companion. These on ear cans sounds good, built with comfortable foam ear pads and looks minimalist. It retails for $129 but at Jaben (Aldelphi, opposite Funan Centre), you can usually get it at a far cheaper price. Look out for their Xmas sale too!
2. TILE - BLUETOOTH KEY FINDER
If you often hear your girlfriend or your mum (guys too of course) whinnying about where they last placed their keys coz they couldn't find em now. Tile is the solution. Clip it together with your keys (or wallets, handphones, whatever), run the app on IOS or Android and you will go about doing some easy treasure hunting. The tune that comes from Tile will be loud enough for you to zone in and recover your lost items. This is super handy for the forgetful ones. Tile retails for $24.99 on Amazon.
3. PEBBLE CLASSIC
I think the Pebble Classic watch looks really good on ladies wrist. Of course, the line of Pebble watches have expanded. The latest Pebble Round is already in the market. Although it looks really good, it trades its nice aesthetics with lower battery capacity. The Round now runs 2-3 days as compared to the Classic's 5-7 days of battery consumption. The Classic still is great. With its great features, strap it to any ladies' wrist, and you suddenly make a geek out of her. You can also find my in-depth review of the Pebble watches here. It is going for $120 - $150 now.
4. SONY RX100 Mark III CAMERA
Lets just be frank about it. The ladies looooovvveeeeee selfies. This Sony camera is one of the best compact camera in the market today. My fiance bought the Mark 4 recently and the quality is damn awesome. Packed with a 20.1 Megapixels, together with 24 mm to 70 mm bright, wide Carl Zeiss lens, the picture quality looks amazing. And because the viewfinder can be tilted to face the front, selfies with this baby will take it to a whole new level. It retails at $899. If you decide to get the Mark IV, it is equipped with 4k resolution video recording. That cost $1199 though.
5. SPIGEN NEO HYBRID IPHONE CASE
You have a lady/gf/friend/sister/mum who has an Iphone and also has butter fingers? Fear not! Spigen is here! With its military grade protection, the Neo Hybrid Case will protect an Iphone like a lioness protecting its cub. Along with its reinforced bumper, and a thin tough 0.8mm lip protector for screen, this casing is one to get. Click here for more details. The casing retails for $34.99.
I hope this post and ideas will help you along in a tech purchase for the ladies. In the next post, I will share some tech gift ideas for the Him. Stay tuned! Happy hunting everyone!
