A coherent framework
The technology behind linked photo frames has improved a lot in recent years. The proof with the frames of Aura Frames. They connect via Wi-Fi and allow you to easily add photos and videos thanks to a dedicated application. Sober and elegant, the Carver has a 10.1-inch screen and even a built-in speaker. It retails for €149. If you want to go exclusive, Mason has a higher quality screen (2K) and offers the option to choose between portrait or landscape view. It is available from €179.
A DAB+ radio
Spread the word, the radio of the future goes through DAB+. But with Artsound R9 Radio you don’t have to choose. It is indeed compatible with FM, DAB+, but also with the radios available on the Internet. In short, you are spoiled for choice to listen to the radio in all possible ways and in the best conditions. The R9 Radio has a wooden box, an integrated equalizer and a bass reflex for this. Finally, in terms of price, €169 counts.
A premium controller
If the person you’re looking for likes to play video games, this is the gift for you! Even if it means spending hours with a controller in your hands, as long as it’s comfortable and of good quality. Many manufacturers offer “premium” controllers, so it is not always easy to find yourself among the available offers. For those who play on Xbox or PC, we recommend the Xbox Elite Series 2 Core Wireless Controller. Proposed at €129, it offers a good compromise and excellent value for money.
This is the most expensive gift in our selection and is clearly not within reach of all budgets. But if you’re looking to please someone who loves music and technology, Sennheiser’s Momentum 4 wireless headphones are a gift of choice. It certainly costs €349.90, but it offers the best, both in terms of comfort and sound quality. It offers smart and intuitive features like a new adaptive noise reduction and a “transparency” mode to go from total immersion to awareness of your surroundings. The icing on the cake: its autonomy is colossal, as it can last up to 60 hours without being recharged.
Discreet but effective headphones
Not everyone likes to have an impressive helmet on their ears. That is why there are also in-ear headphones. They are much more discreet and this does not prevent them from delivering excellent sound. Take Google’s Pixel Buds Pro, for example. They are available in four colors and have a battery life of 30 hours. These headphones allow you to cut out outside noise thanks to Silent Seal technology, as well as hear what’s happening around you with Transparency mode. Their price: €219. If you are looking for a more affordable model, their little brother, the Google Pixel Buds A-Series, is offered for €129.
