Nothing Ear (1): the little sound bomb
First product of Nothing, the new company of Carl Pei, one of the founders of OnePlus, the Ear (1) surprise by their design. Using a clear plastic on part of the case and earbuds works well. Their good resistance coupled with the IPX4 certification (guaranteeing resistance to splashes and perspiration) allows them to be used during sport.
On the sound side, the ears (1) do not try to impress and offer an extremely balanced rendering, with all frequency ranges well represented. Both the spatialization and the stereo rendering are impeccable. But where the earphones prove to be stunning is at the level of the active noise reduction which crushes everything that is done at this price level.
These headphones stand out with unprecedented quality and functionality at this price, we say all the good things we think about them in our Nothing ear test (1).
Amazon Kindle: thousands of books at your fingertips
We’re not going to lie to each other, a bit like the Goncourt of the year, the reading light is a bit of a boating gift. That doesn’t mean it’s bad though. Below 100 euros, the basic Kindle does a job that could not be more honorable.
It is compact, light and solid. And if its 6-inch screen is not the most detailed we tested, it is readable in all circumstances. Even the night does not scare him thanks to its integrated lighting. The other great strength of Kindles is the Kindle store, by far the most extensive platform on the ebook market.
And if you don’t want to give away an Amazon product, the Kobo Nia is a great alternative. Its features are almost identical, but Kobo has a much more open policy regarding compatibility with different e-book formats.

Google Nest Audio: a very good connected speaker
Still dressed in fabric, this Nest Audio is larger than its predecessor and uses this space to go upmarket from an audio point of view. the woofer and the Tweeter deliver 360° sound. The speaker also has Ambient IQ technology, which calibrates the rendering according to the room in which it is used.
Google requires the speaker, the brand’s voice assistant is also part of it with all its ultra-practical features on a daily basis. Make it set reminders, ask it what the weather will be like or what route you should take… The speaker can even recognize different voices thanks to Voice Match technology. All this makes it an excellent control center for all the connected devices in the house.
Read our full Google Nest Audio review to take a look at its capabilities. And if the gift recipient is more into Apple or Amazon than Google, the HomePod Mini and Amazon Echo are great alternatives.
Huawei Watch Fit: a small connected watch that has it in the belly
If it is officially sold as a connected watch, Huawei’s Watch Fit is in practice halfway connected bracelets because of its small size and its elongated screen. The latter makes it much more discreet than the average.
Its functions clearly direct it towards supporting athletes. In addition to the cardiac sensor, we therefore have the right to an analysis of the oxygenation of the blood and a GPS completes the whole.
The last big strong point of this device is its autonomy. It lasts the week carefree with the heart rate monitor and sleep monitoring activated! Read our Huawei Watch Fit review to find out more.
UE Wonderboom 2: the small speaker that sends heavy
This second version of the UE Wonderboom takes up its particularly nice compact design. Dressed in fabric, this speaker is designed above all for outdoor use. It is therefore waterproof and absolutely not afraid of dust and sand.
Among its other strong points, we note an autonomy which reaches 13 hours, but above all a surprising power reserve from a sound point of view. The rendering is clearly not intended to be audiophile, but it will suffice to add sound to most environments.
A very good little speaker that will delight adventurers as much as those who prefer to stay by the fire.
Sennheiser 350 BT: comfortable and durable
Released in 2021, the Sennheiser 350 BT is already establishing itself as a benchmark for affordable headphones. On the ears, it does not disappoint. First, because it displays a beautiful sound reproduction, relatively well balanced. On the other hand, we note a somewhat messy sound at high volume.
The headphones are of the circum-aural type, which means that the ear cups surround the ears. This naturally offers good passive insulation and also good comfort since the headphones do not press on the ears. Finally, the Sennheiser 350 BT benefits from a major advantage: its comfortable autonomy of around thirty hours. The Sennheiser 350 BT is almost flawless, hard to ask for more at this price.
Fujifilm Instax Mini 9
The Fujifilm Instax Mini 9 is the perfect little gift for those who love taking instant photos. Directly after taking the shot, the photo will be printed on a sheet of film that will come out of the camera. Convenient for taking photos with friends to always have them by your side.
Available in several colors ranging from blue to white via green or pink, its operation is extremely simple. The photo is taken in 3 steps: turn on the camera, adjust the brightness and press the shutter button. The photo will come out of the camera a few seconds later. For selfies, a small mirror is located next to the lens to be sure to frame well.
Connected alarm clock Lenovo Smart Clock
The Lenovo Smart Clock is, as its name suggests, a smart alarm clock integrating Google’s Smart Displays system. This alarm clock consists of a small 4-inch screen housed in a shell with a design largely – and voluntarily – similar to Google Home products with this fabric covering. Integrating Google Assistant, it offers the same possibilities as Google Home: programming an alarm, consulting your calendar, etc.
This alarm clock has a loudspeaker with acceptable performance which will allow you to play some music or listen to the radio from the bottom of your bed. The top of the product is a touch zone to increase or decrease the sound or to snooze the alarm clock by tapping on it. The screen adapts to the environment to avoid disturbing the user in the middle of the night. For example, in the evening, it will turn black and white so as not to hurt the eyes and not to interfere with falling asleep.
The Lenovo Smart Clock is a bit like the connected alarm clock we dreamed of 15 years ago and we really like it, as evidenced by our test of the Lenovo Smart Clock.
