Jingle Bells, Jingle Bells, jingle all the waaaaay. Christmas is approaching fast and so is our eternal dilemma: what are we supposed to buy as a gift for our beloved ones? If it’s something too cheap, it will be a sign that we don’t love them enough. If it’s something too banal, we will be accused of being too lazy. But some clever gadgets which smell like holiday spirit come to our rescue in the form of the perfect Christmas gift and here are some of our favorites.
Awwww, what’s cuter than a tiny robot spinning around on your tablet or smartphone? It’s the kind of gift you would give it to yourself, just because it makes you feel like a kid again. Ozobot is a robot toy which is both educational and fun to play with. Serving mainly as a learning platform for coding and robotics, Ozobot can be used with its own app, compatible with both Android and iOS. What’s more, kids can even draw their own mazes for the Ozobot to follow.
2) Automatic Smart Driving Assistant
Automatic is the little box that could. If your car is dying on you and you have no idea what that emergency light means, Automatic can give you a helpful hand. It’s the perfect gift for someone who constantly runs into trouble with his car; it plugs into the car’s diagnostic port, being capable to sync both with a smartphone and the on-board computer, to offer vital data. Apart from diagnosing issues, it keeps track of your driving ways remembering your parking spot and it even sends help your way in case you are involved in a crash. The tracking feature is also great for those parents who want to know what their kids are doing, after receiving those precious car keys.
3) BACtrack Mobile Smartphone Breathalyzer
It’s Christmas time. It’s snowing. It’s cold. And what better way to warm yourself up than drinking a glass of mulled wine? Ok, there might be better ways, but mulled wine is a pretty good option, except if you are the designated driver. Or? Everybody knows you should never drink and drive, but the BACtrack Mobile Smartphone Breathalyzer helps you to actually drink responsible. The portable breathalyzer approximates when your BAC will be back to 0.00%, so that you can be safer on the road; it’s an appropriate gift for anyone who enjoys the occasional drink.
4) Tryble Headphone Earmuffs
It’s cold outside and you can tell by those ears which look like Rudolph the Reindeer’s nose. The fluffy Tryble Headphone Earmuffs won’t only keep your ears warm in style, but you will also be able to listen to your music, whether it’s played from your iPhone, tablet, smartphone or any other MP3 player. With a chic design and double functionality, it’s a great gift for those who can’t stay away from listening to their favorite playlist all the time.
5) 3 in 1 Powerbank, Torch and Hand Warmer
Probably the most practical gift on the list, the 3 in 1 can provide around 4 hours of hand-warming heat, 50 hours of LED torch functionality and a complete recharge of your iPhone. It puts the P in practical and anyone who enjoys the outdoors, but not the occasional coldness, will be absolutely delighted with such a gift.
