Forgot the special day of a loved one? Or perhaps you have fallen behind in your holiday shopping. Fret not, there's time to snag some great gifts before the holidays — retail stores are open and buzzing. But if you're reluctant to brave the crowds, online shopping is still doable at the last minute, especially if you're an Amazon Prime member with free one-day delivery (some items even have same-day delivery). Here are five last-min gifts that will delight your loved ones. Click the Amazon SG links for next-day delivery, provided there's stock, of course.
If somebody you love is a fan of the Castlevania/Metroid side-scrollers of old, get him or her Metroid Dread (for the Nintendo Switch). The deserving winner of Best Action/Adventure at the year-end Game Awards 2021, Metroid Dread brings back many of the power-ups and abilities of previous games, while also adding new ones. But the best thing about the game are the boss fights. They keep you on your toes and there are plenty of them.
We all know an absent-minded friend or two, so why not make their day with an Apple AirTag? Slightly bigger than a dollar coin, this tiny transmitter will tap nearby iPhones to tell its owner its precise location. Attach it to your keys, bags and other valuables so you won't ever lose them again. Personally, I would get a four-pack and split them up as a stocking filler Christmas gift for colleagues and friends.
Logitech MX Master 3
Instead of buying gag gifts that are unlikely to be used, why not get one of the best mice for work? The Logitech MX Master 3 is ergonomic and feels premium in the hand. The metal MagSpeed scroll wheel is amazing — it spins almost endlessly with a lazy flick. Last but not least is Logitech's Flow software, which lets you connect the mouse to two computers and switch seamlessly between them. You can even copy and paste items between computers, whether they are PCs or Macs.
Jabra Elite 7 Pro
Bestow onto your loved ones the gift of silence with the Jabra Elite 7 Pro, one of the best active noise cancellation earphones in the market now. We could barely make out the background noise when the ANC is turned on. The sound quality, too, is excellent with clear separation between the mids and the highs. Battery life is also great — it lasts almost 8 hours with ANC on.
Sonos Beam (Gen 2)
Liven up the living room of your loved ones with the Sonos Beam. This compact soundbar elevates the sound of any TV without taking up too much space. The Gen 2 model adds Dolby Atmos to create the illusion of enveloping surround sound. It can also act as a Google smart speaker, allowing users to control their smart home devices using voice commands.
