Syng Cell Alpha Triphonic Speaker
FOR THE AUDIOPHILE
Co-founded by former Apple lead designer Christopher Stringer and entrepreneur Damon Way, Los Angeles-based audio brand Syng’s triphonic technology delivers immersive, room-filling sound for music lovers who want to hear every vocal layer, hi-hat sound and deep bass beat, thanks to an innovative design that puts the tweeter, midrange and woofer in a sphere-like case. The company’s debut Cell Alpha speaker automatically adjusts its output depending on the room’s space and its location and surroundings within it, and you can link several Syng Cells together for true surround sound. Whether they’re playing Fela Kuti, Radiohead, Haim or the Supremes, podcasts, movies, or video games; the Cell Alpha can play diamond-clear audio using Apple AirPlay 2 and Spotify Connect, or be plugged into a laptop, record player or TV with the Syng Link cable.
Zadro Extra-Large Towel Warmer
FOR THE HOMEBODY
What’s the difference between a luxurious, spa-like bathroom and one that’s not? A stylish towel and robe warmer, like this one from Zadro that holds up to two 40-inch-by-70-inch bath towels, or any other comfy essentials that recipients want to have at the ready for showers and chilly mornings.

The adorable device takes about two hours to charge and offers up to seven hours of continuous travel (which translates to about 21 miles) at a top speed of six miles per hour, and Gita’s sensors allow the robot to intuitively follow people and mirror their speed and movement while avoiding obstacles during the day and at night. The company also offers a larger-capacity robot that can hold up to 40 pounds and streams music.
