Fashion-forward type who loves their hair
Vogue magazine says it was ‘blown away’ by the Dyson Supersonic hairdryer. It’s no run of the mill hairdryer. The body is hollow (like a Polo) with the motor inside the handle. So it’s super-light and easy to use – it’s not top-heavy like others. Hairdryers can get too hot. But the Dyson prevents overheating to protect hair’s natural shine. How? By measuring air temperature 20 times every second.
They can save time in the mornings with fast drying, while precision jets of air make styling while drying easy. Salon-styled every day? That’s serious brownie points.
Indie kid, dance lover or dad rocker
Buying for a partner who’s passionate about music? Who’s always on Spotify? Who likes to cook, clean, run and even vacuum to a soundtrack?
Smart sound multi-room speakers like Bose SoundTouch are perfect. They connect wirelessly over your Wi-Fi. So you can start with one speaker before adding more around the home. Controlled by an app, you can play iTunes or a romantic Spotify playlist from your phone. There’s heaps more stuff too. The entry level Bose SoundTouch 10 is the perfect first-move in multi-room. For the next one, there’s always Christmas.
Gym bunny or newbie runner

Box-set binger who loves to get hygge
Cosying up in a blanket and binge-watching box-sets your perfect date night?
The dinky Google Chromecast gives you Netflix and Google Play on your TV for £30 – effectively making your television ‘smart’. Netflix shows like spooky, retro Stranger Things and lavish royal drama The Crown are perfect for getting hygge – a Danish lifestyle trend that’s all about cosiness at home. Chromecast is easy to set up. Simply plug it into the back of your TV and download the app. Your phone or tablet then becomes a remote control, using your Wi-Fi to cast content onto your TV. Say ‘hello’ to a world of cosy box-set bingeing.
‘No – I forgot to charge my phone’ type
There’s nothing more frustrating than running out of phone battery on a night out – particularly if you’re the person at home waiting for a call. Know they’re safe with this makeup mirror that doubles as a phone charger. The handbag-sized Hyper Pearl is the very definition of multi-tasking.
The compact USB battery pack not only charges your devices but also features 2 mirrors and an LED ring light – perfect for touch ups in low light.
