Looking for the best gifts for the most important people in your life? Here's a wish list of gift items that the HardwareZone editorial team has curated, just for you.

Instead of category based options, we've organized them by price category to give you a better overview of your options. We start from under S$50, then under S$200, S$500, S$1,000 and all the way up to S$5,000.


Gifts under S$50

TrackR Pixel

The TrackR Pixel is a Bluetooth device that helps you keep track of your things. Attach it to something like your keys, and you can make it ring whenever you can’t find it. Conversely, you can also use the Pixel to sound an alarm on your smartphone when it’s your phone you can’t find. If the Pixel happens to be on something that’s out of range, you can use TrackR’s Crowd Locate Network to help find it using other people’s Pixels.
