Christmas gift ideas
Coupons or chocolate? There are definitely more original ways to surprise your loved ones! We’ve found some great treats that are perfect for those who love smart gadgets and eye-catching interior.

A present should always come straight from the heart – especially during the “most wonderful time of the year”. Still wondering what to put under the tree this time around? No worries, we’ve got a whole list to share: with these Christmas gifts, you can not only make others happy – but also give your own home a well-deserved upgrade.

1. Sonos One speaker: impeccable sound for the holidays

Loudspeakers can be a great segue into the world of connected homes. The wireless Sonos One, for example, offers a powerful performance in compact form. You can play music, audiobooks, and podcasts from the streaming platforms of your choice either via:

  • the touch-sensitive surface

  • voice control with Amazon Alexa

  • the Sonos app for iOS or Android

As long as you have a WiFi connection, it’s possible to couple several loudspeakers to create a multi-room experience or stereo sound.

Another benefit: Sonos One is not only compatible with Apple AirPlay 2, but also Gira KNX systems. The Gira X1 server allows for even more flexibility when controlling smart devices.

2. Senic Muse Blocks: the fine tuning for your Sonos One

Want to take your audio entertainment to the next level? Then why not add Muse Blocks from Senic to the mix: hidden within small square plates of 7x7x0.3 centimetres, an NFC module automatically tells your smartphone to turn on your favourite playlist. If you have several Sonos speakers in your home, you can choose where music should be played via app. Soft jazz in the bathroom? Hard rock in the garage? Your wish is your app’s command.

Each Muse Block comes with a unique artwork that visualises its respective playlist. Placed on a minimalist wall-mounted bracket, your music collection thus turns into a design statement.

3. Smart comfort with the Gira System 3000 touch top unit

You (or your loved ones) already have the Gira System 3000 installed and would like to explore all of its possibilities? With a special touch top unit, switching on lights or adjusting the blinds becomes even more intuitive. Similar to a smartphone display, a simple tap is enough to tell your home what to do. With one swipe, you can dim the lights to your preferred level of brightness. Once you’ve set the mood, a memory function enables you to store those exact settings and reactivate them anytime. The Gira System 3000 touch top unit’s minimalist design is available in many different colour variants, ranging from creamy white to lack matt. An illuminated surface makes it easy to find the right spot on the wall at night.

4. Smart gardening: mini green house for the kitchen

Imagine you could harvest fresh herbs and veggies all year round – without even stepping outside. What sounds like an oxymoron is much more feasible than you might think: thanks to the Smart Garden from Click & Grow, you can grow your own crop even in a tiny flat in the city. An automated system ensures that the plants have just the right amount of water, oxygen, and nutrients to flourish. The lighting is controlled either manually or based on individual schedules that you configure via the Click & Grow app for Android und iOS. The app also offers detailed instructions and practical tips to guide you along. A starter pack includes seeds for three batches of tomato, basil, and lettuce, respectively.

5. Clever kettle: hot drinks for cosy hours

This gift idea will certainly delight the whole family: with Mi Smart Kettle Pro, you’ll never have to worry if your tea, coffee, or cocoa is served either too hot or too cold. Five adjustable modes ensure perfectly tempered drinks for any taste. A high-resolution display lets you know when the right temperature is reached. At the push of a button, you can switch between the following modes:  

  • 40 °C for probiotics

  • 50 °C for milk powder

  • 70 °C for baby formula

  • 80 °C for tea

  • 90 °C for coffee

Another tip: the Mi Home / Xiaomi Home app for Android enables you to configure even more precise settings.

6. Spicing up the Christmas menu with Bottle Grinder

No matter how many hours you spend in the kitchen – without the right seasoning, you’ll hardly leave a memorable impression on your guests. But you don’t need to be a master chef to keep everyone happy around the dinner table: a smart gadget such as the Bottle Grinder will help you cook up a delicious feast. As its name suggests, it is shaped like a bottle which actually serves as a spice mill. You can use it for salt and pepper, but also nuts or dried fruit. One set consists of two pieces, with various Scandinavian-inspired colours to choose from: the perfect accessory to give your meal a boost of flavour and put add an elegant touch to your Christmas decorations.
