Ready or not, Christmas is just around the corner, which means you’ve gotta start thinking about what to get the significant people in your life. How about this year you don’t leave it until the last minute? Rushing around an insanely packed mall on Christmas Eve isn’t much fun, is it?

To help you get your shopping done early, here are a few ideas for you and the places you can grab them.


How awesome are these? Propel Star Wars Drones are built to battle against each other, both in the live and virtual world. They run on LIFI system (data that transfers at the speed of light for instant gameplay scoring), IAT (Intelligence Awareness System) where voices from characters in the movie talk to you through the hand controller, to coach on how to win the game and the reverse propulsion system with blades hidden underneath the drone – you will dramatically improve your flying skills so quickly to have a shot at becoming the Ultimate Battle Pilot.

Propel Star Wars Drones will be stocked at all good retailers. More info here:


You know that feeling, the morning after a gig when your ears are ringing and feeling generally awful? Yeah, that’s not good. Well, Vibes can put a stop to that. They are reusable earplugs designed for live music that lower the volume to a more comfortable and safer level, while still allowing you to hear the sounds clearly. Vibes’ clear design makes them virtually invisible, and each pair includes three sizes of eartips to ensure a comfortable fit for any sized ear.

Vibes have been featured in publications like Forbes, GQ, Huffington Post, Mashable and Consequence of Sound, and are being sold through major retailers like Walmart and Urban Outfitters.

Check out the Vibes website for more info and, if you’re in the UK, you can grab a pair of Vibes from here.
