I’m not a big fan of gadgets – but I am a big fan of stylish gadgets. Most of the time, I’m 60% on “form,” 40% on “function” when it comes to gadgets (okay, maybe not just gadgets.) If the budget allow, I’m always willing to spend a little bit more just to get the more stylish option. My belief is pretty simple: we spend a large part of our life (and time) using “things” and tools, so when your tools actually look good, you’ll feel good when using them.
If you’re looking for gadgets to gift someone, why not consider these 7 stylish and useful gadgets:
Logitech MX Master Wireless Mouse is the most stylish looking AND ergonomic mouse I’ve used so far. (I just switched from Magic Mouse.) A great idea for power user or someone who uses mouse extensively for work.
I’m not a fan of over-ear or on-ear headphones, but if you’re looking for a very stylish one, Marshall Major II in Brown is a good choice.
WD My Passport Ultra Metal Edition is simply the best-looking portable USB storage I’ve seen so far.
Borrowing the design idea from the now iconic SoundSticks system, Harman Kardon Aura looks as stunning as the legendary model. Its design is a work of art, and it sounds incredible too.
Semi-DSLR Olympus PEN E-PL7 is a great example of products that combines retro design and modern features. It comes with a front-facing flip LCD screen.
The lack of ports might be an issue for some people, but if you can get past that, the new Macbook in Gold is a stunner that also works.
While computer makers are getting better at making computers that look more like luxury items than computers, computer peripherals such as modems or routers still have a long way to go. Google OnHub is one great example of how computer peripherals can also look minimalist stylish yet functional.
