You can get good headphones with excellent performance for less than Rs 3,000 from brands like Boat, Noise, etc.
Be it a birthday, anniversary or a festival, gadgets are amongst the top gifting options. Spoilt for choice, you may find it difficult to decide.

ET Wealth lists options to help you decide.

1. Headphones


Everyone loves a good pair of headphones. There are multiple choices available ranging from large over the ear headphones to wireless earbuds that you can choose from. Earlier there were only a few known brands such as Sennheiser, Bose, Sony that delivered great sound but now you get excellent performance even for less than Rs 3,000 from brands like Boat, JBL, Zebronics, Noise etc. We would recommend the truly wireless earbud ones for gifting.

2. Soundbar


While the LED TVs get slimmer for added style, the internal speakers of the TV suffer in output—they are not able to deliver audio quality that can match the picture quality. The easiest way to improve the sound quality without worrying about wires and ruining the look of a TV is to use a soundbar. Most people don't invest in one because they believe that soundbars are expensive. Thankfully with brands like Mi, boat and Blaupunkt you can easily get a good looking and great sounding soundbar to give as a gift in the Rs 4,000 to Rs 6,000 price range.

3. Smart speaker


A smart speaker is the first step to creating a connected home. You can choose the Amazon Echo Dot or the Google Home Mini as the perfect gift and they are available for less than Rs 3,000. Not only does the smart speaker let you control other smart devices (lights, plugs etc) but also works great as a virtual assistant and for streaming music from the web. We would recommend giving this as a gift over a standard bluetooth speaker.

4. Wifi camera


Why would one gift a Wifi camera? You will not understand the benefits of a WiFi camera, till you own one. You can use the camera to keep a watch on house staff, your pet and your children when you are away or even at home but in a different room. Some wireless cameras also have two-way communication option making them great to use as a baby monitor. You can get one between Rs 1,500-Rs 5,000, depending upon your requirements from brands like Yi, Mi and TP-Link. Installing the camera is easy and you can do it on your own.

5. Fitness band


Fitness bands make a wonderful gift as most people today want to stay fit. With a fitness band, you can track your steps, calories, sleep and some even have the option of heart rate tracking. All this data is synced to a companion app to make it easy for you to understand. You can set a daily goal and can also compete with friends to keep yourself motivated. There are some excellent options from Mi, Honor and Goqii if you are budget conscious, else you can opt for one from Fitbit or Samsung.

6. Others options
Air purifier: Rs 3,999 Onwards
Power-bank: Rs 700 Onwards
Smartwatch: Rs 2,999 Onwards
