5 Trending Holiday Gift Ideas in 2020!

Smart Home Gift– Ho, ho, ho. It’s that time of the year again.

With the end of year holidays fast approaching, the search for the perfect present for loved ones and friends is back on. That said, we understand how challenging finding the right gift can be. To give you a hand, we’ve hence combed through Google Trends to pick out five cool and functional trending smart products to help you surprise your fellow smart home enthusiasts for the best holiday gift ideas, especially for the year 2020.

Hey Google—5 trending products for holiday gift ideas, please.

1. Ninja Air Fryer Max

Ninja Air Fryer

If you’ve rediscovered your love for cooking during the circuit breaker this year, you’re not the only one. With stay-home measures prompting many of us to find easy home-based alternatives to our favourite dine-out meals, it’s safe to say that a kitchen tool may just light the spark for anyone still exploring their inner-chef.

Google’s suggestion? The Ninja Air Fryer Max—a smart air fryer that offers auto-iQ controls for six different cooking functions, namely: Air Fry, Max Crisp, Roast, Bake, Reheat, and Dehydrate.

If you’re looking to enjoy guilt-free fried food, or better yet, tasty and fuss-free recipes, according to Good Housekeeping, the Ninja Air Fryer Max is the quickest air-fryer that they have tested. Beyond being a game-changer for one’s cooking hours, the air-fryer is also cited as being easy to operate, making it a plus for busy homeowners, straddling between their work from home demands and cooking duties.

Suitable for:

  • Fried-food lovers
  • Work-from-home professionals
  • New Homeowners

Ninja Air Fryer Max price in Singapore: $399-$429

2. Smart Cleaning Robot

Koble Smart Cleaning Robot

This next item should be familiar to many. Known for its added convenience around the house, smart cleaning robots help to minimise cleaning efforts, by offering automated vacuuming and even mopping capabilities.

Priced at $599, Koble’s own Smart Cleaning Robot can be a great housewarming gift for friends, relatives and parents. While it bears a lower price tag compared to those by other big-name brands, Koble’s Smart Cleaning Robot doesn’t compromise on quality or features, possessing a full range of smart cleaning functionalities.

Automate cleaning with a touch of an app button, and even program it to clean while you’re away. With its in-built mapping function, you can also be at ease knowing where your smart cleaning robot is at any point, at any time, demarcate cleaning zones, and plan out cleaning routes for efficient cleaning. Definitely a bang for one’s buck.

Suitable for:

  • Busy homeowners
  • Ageing parents
  • Smart home enthusiasts

Smart Cleaning Robot price in Singapore: $529

3. Sonos Arc

Koble Sonos Arc Smart Soundbar

Be it Netflixing at home or blasting Spotify for hours, chances are you’ve likely done one of the former during your circuit breaker days. Searches for streaming services such as these have increased by 33% in comparison to last year, and we don’t foresee this trend to be heading away anytime soon either. Hence, what better gift to give than a smart speaker system powered none other by Dolby Atmos?

Cue the Sonos Arc – the ultimate soundbar for streaming movies, listening to music, and immersing in games. Possessing a sleek and beautiful design that gives a stunning first impression, the Sonos Arc further impresses with its cinematic 3D sound and powerful and rich bass that simply blows minds (and ears) away.

Entertainment lovers will also appreciate the speech enhancement technology that the Sonos Arc features. It provides viewers with boosted clarity, so that viewers can finally say goodbye to missing the dialogue on their favourite shows (like Crash Landing on You and Money Heist, the two top TV shows in Singapore based on Searches in 2020), and hello to crystal clear exchanges on-screen.

Lastly, the Sonos Arc comes with a built-in voice assistant, such as the Google Assistant, granting the soundbar additional smart capabilities. Via the voice command feature, recipients will be able to perform tasks achievable through a standard Google Home set, such as playing their favourite music, setting the alarm, checking the news with their voice, and activating other smart home devices at home when integrated. Sonos has also thought about how loud a living room can be; as such, this soundbar has been equipped with echo cancellation to enhance voice activation.

Suitable for:

  • Movie buffs
  • Gamers
  • Audiophiles

Sonos Arc price in Singapore: $1,499

4. Fitbit Versa 3

Fitbit Versa 3

2020 urges us not to take our health for granted. However, with gyms and workout classes only steadily resuming, staying motivated to keep fit can be a challenge. For anyone with such a resolve, a smartwatch can hence be a great choice to aid in the pursuit of a healthy lifestyle.

Versa 3 comes with a multitude of health and fitness features, and can be used to track:

  • Steps
  • Heart rate
  • Calories
  • Distance
  • Floors climbed
  • Sleep

Despite being primarily a fitness watch, the Versa 3 also comes with several handy smartwatch features, such as access to Spotify, and receiving of calls, messages, and meeting invites. As part of its latest update, it now also works with Google Assistant – one of the most widely-used voice assistants in Singapore. This integration hence allows users to use voice commands, such as “Hey, Google, how did I sleep last night?” and “Hey, Google, show my sleep summary,” to pull out personal health information. When paired up with a reliable smart home system, it can also be used to control linked up smart devices—combining health and convenience into one neat package!

Suitable for:

  • Athletes
  • Fitness junkie
  • Health enthusiasts

Fitbit Versa 3 price in Singapore: as low as $328

5. Smart Pet Feeder

Koble Smart Pet Feeder

As the saying goes, pets are often a man’s best friend. If you have a friend or relative that’s also a pet owner, a smart pet feeder could hence be the perfect holiday gift idea.

For one, having a smart pet feeder can help to ensure that one’s pet is well-fed. Be it when one’s at home, or away.

With features that allow for the setting up of an automated feeding schedule and remote feeding, working pet owners can now feed their fur babies when they are out and about, through automation or in-app controls. The pet feeder can also be configured to dispense a fixed amount of pet food each time, allowing for proper food portioning to maintain one’s pet diet.

If that’s not enough, the smart pet feeder also provides a data log to keep owners in the know of how much their pet has been fed over time. For smart pet feeders with built-in video capabilities (like Koble’s Smart Pet Feeder), owners can also check in on their pets through the integrated smart home app, and interact with their pets via the in-built speaker. The ultimate gift for ensuring one’s peace of mind.

Suitable for:

  • Working pet owners

Smart Pet Feeder price in Singapore: as low as $279
