For the sleep deprived: Bose Sleepbuds
Bose Sleepbuds block and mask sound to help you sleep through snoring, loud neighbors and city noises. Bose Sleepbuds block noise in two ways. First, the soft silicone ear tips and stabilizers passively block sound. Just lowering the overall volume, though, isn’t enough because it’s the change in noise levels that wakes us. So, the Sleepbuds also smooth out ambient noise levels by playing sound-masking soundtracks. These soothing tracks are designed to absorb the frequencies in common disruptions like snoring, so you can sleep through them. Give your partner the gift of a better night's sleep. Find out more about how the Bose Sleepbuds work.
For the gadget lover: LG ZeroG Levitating Portable Bluetooth Speaker with Subwoofer
Yes, the fact that the LG ZeroG Bluetooth speaker floats is awesome, but the levitation also serves a purpose, enabling the speaker to provide a more immersive, 360-degree sound with enough power to fill a room. Plus, the base doubles as a subwoofer for deep, rich sound. Find more nerdy gift ideas.
For the beauty lover: Foreo UFO
