Is keeping track of belongings a struggle? If phone or keys tend to go walkabout for one of your friends or loved ones, get them a Tile! Connected to a smartphone via Bluetooth, Tile keeps track of your belongings with an impressing range of up to 60 metres. Simply attach it to your keys or slot it into your wallet, download the app and ‘call’ the Tile to start your own search party! There’s different ringtones to choose from and they’re very compact and durable. I love the chic Tile Style which doubles up as a great accessory! RRP $49.00.
Men are often hard to buy for. Say thank you with a gift that they will truly love and be able to wear again and again – a statement bow tie, pocket square, lapel pin or belt from Buckle | 1922. As the name suggests, the Australian born company started in 1922 as a father and son business. Now – they service over 1200 retailers across Australia with a range of men’s accessories. I love how sharp and chic their range is. We are even using them for our grooms men! Check out the cute novelty cuff links below and see their on-line store for yourself.

The headphones fit perfectly in the ears (a big improvement from original Freedom’s) with three interchangeable tip/fins to choose from. The headphones provide about four hours of listening, depending on volume. The charging clip also provides an additional four hours or charge, without being plugged in. Available in black or white and gold, the design is super stylish and the perfect accessory for the gym. You can purchase Jaybird Freedom’s from most electronic retailers at RRP $229.00.
Most people have multiple devices: a computer, laptop and phone. Now you can have a keyboard that toggles between them all! The Logitech K380 is a wireless, compact keyboard that pairs with up to three devices at once. It’s compatible with most computers; including Mac, tablets, and smartphones and offers long battery life at up to 2 years from two AAA batteries. It comes in two colours: blue and grey at an affordable price. Great gift idea for a tech head! RRP $69.95.
Drones have finally come down in price and are made in compact sizes you can actually travel with! The DJI Spark delivers a tiny, lightweight design; stabilized camera; USB charging and advanced features like gesture controls and obstacle detection. It easy to fly, even for a beginner and is great for brids-eye photos and videos. It delivers all the features you could ever require from a drone with a flight time of up to 14 minutes and additional batteries as part of the Fly More pack to keep you in the air longer. If you’re buying a gift for someone that has no experience with drones, I recommend the Fly More Combo which has everything you could ever need to start taking awesome videos. Fly More Combo RRP $1099.
