Aurabeat AG+ (NSP-X1) Air Purifier
This apt housewarming gift can double up as a practical Christmas present, as the Aurabeat AG+ (NSP-X1) Air Purifier ($1099) is the world’s first Food and Drug Administration (FDA)-approved air purifier and air steriliser certified to eliminate more than 99.9 percent of Covid-19 virus. It can also remove other airborne bacteria using patent-pending AG+ Disinfection Technology since it employs the use of UV, effectively reducing the risk of secondary infection and airborne transmission. Better yet, the device also eliminates odours within seconds, so not even the stench of durian can linger when the purifier is turned on. Alternatively, get the AG+ Portable (CSP-X1) that’s priced at just $269. Bring it along to the office, the car or any room in your home.
Available at Aurabeats Singapore, ante, eCapitamall, iShopChangi, Kris Shop and more.
Bang & Olufsen Beoremote Halo
Help your loved ones achieve their dream of living in a futuristic, smart home by gifting them the all-new Beoremote Halo ($1,200) by Bang & Olufsen that’s more than just a highly functional remote control for the abode. Either allow it to stand on its own or be mounted onto a wall; to use, simply approach it and the display screen will illuminate, allowing users to select their favourite music or audio. Controlling the volume offers a luxurious tactile experience too, as the solid aluminium ring provides subtle haptic feedback when the volume is raised or lowered. The Halo comes with four favourites buttons, allowing users to access their favourite music with a simple tap of the finger. Also feel free to control a multiroom experience as the display is able to identify the content played and offer a list of connected devices.
The Beoremote Halo comes in natural, brass tone and bronze tone anodised aluminium and is available now at Bang & Olufsen Grand Hyatt flagship store in Singapore.
