The holidays are usually all about gifts for others, but who said you can’t take a little time to treat yourself, too?

With the help of photographer, Tegan Smith and fashion blogger, Anesu Chogugudza, we’ve put together our top recommendations to add to your tech wish list before the year is over:

  1. Zoook Rocker 2 Bluetooth speaker

This audio-visual treat is high on Tegan’s list. Experience a combination of bright, glowing LED lights for an instant party vibe while you listen to your favourite tracks in HD sound. The multi-dimensional Rocker 2 is perfect for any party or to just enjoy your music at home.


  1. JBL T110 in-ear headphones

Lightweight, comfortable and compact – the JBL T110 in-ear headphones can punch out some serious bass to create the JBL Pure Bass sound you’ve experienced at big music events. These also come with a single-button remote on a tangle-free flat cable to control your music playback, as well as answer calls on the fly with a built-in microphone. It’s your everyday companion on the road, at work, and at home.

  1. Popsocket

Never heard of it? A popsocket is the new must-have accessory this summer. The popsocket transforms into whatever you need it for – whether you need a stand, an earbud-management system or just a better grip on your phone or tablet. Expand them for a handy grip, and collapse them to easily fit in your pocket. Popsockets attach to nearly all phones, tablets, and cases, and are repositionable. They’re also the perfect gift and come in some fresh colours and prints.

  1. Powerbank

Power up on the go with a powerbank from our range of options online. With the holiday coming up, there’s bound to be a lot of snap-worthy moments that you’ll want to capture. Don’t get stuck with a dead phone – we recommend charging up with the Zagg powerbank (it’s only R99!).

  1. JBL V710 wireless Bluetooth on-ear headphones

 Freedom from wires. Slip on the JBL Everest 710 anywhere to experience up to 25 hours of wireless freedom and the thrill of mind-blowing, legendary JBL sound. With ShareMe 2.0 technology you can now also connect and share your music with friends via Bluetooth. A quick 2-hour recharge, a sleek flat-fold design and a compact hard carrying case make these headphones the perfect companion for your busy lifestyle.

The end of the year is the perfect time to spoil yourself. Spend time with their family and friends, enjoy the simpler things in life, and indulge in some tech retail therapy.
