It's my turn! As you may have noticed this week, the team over Abduzeedo is sharing their picks for the holiday gift guide. It's our interesting spin for 2017 so you get to see a little bit of everything from each one of us. In case you've missed it, you can check out the gift guides from Fabio and Ibby currently live on the blog. For my guide, you will mostly find tech stuff that I've had the opportunity to play with and review for ABDZ, there is some pending reviews that will either be published by the end of this year or in the beginning of 2018. It's quite a busy time of the year but it's never too late to make that one someone happy. One little smile is enough to cheer you up. Here is my list and hopefully this will be useful anyhow.

The review is coming soon on the blog and I have been having so much fun with this thing. It's small enough that you can carry it in your backpack anywhere. It takes about 1 minute to setup for a flight. And I mostly use it as a tool for photography and to be able to capture a different perspective and it's definitely a must for me. You can check out a few of my pictures via my Instagram @aoirostudio. DJI Spark (Fly More Combo) Phone For being a Google Pixel user for over a year now, it's definitely on my wishlist getting the Pixel 2. We all have our criteria for the perfect phone and for me, it's all about having the best camera. I heard nothing but amazing things about the Pixel 2 and I do believe Google definitely shine while making the best experience of the software. It's really cool seeing more designers making the switch to the Pixel 2, Android has made tremendous changes over the last few years. It's certainly worth the try. Pixel 2 Headphone We have reviewed the AIAIAI TMA-2 on ABDZ and it's still in my opinion the best headphone I have ever had. With the zero-logo minimal design approach, this headphone is comfy, amazing sound and modular. The AIAIAI TMA-2 is also now available in a wireless version. AIAIAI TMA-2 Modular Headphones Headphone on a Budget If you are on a budget, you should definitely take a look at the Anker SoundBuds Slim Earbuds, with a playtime of 7 hours on a charge of 1.5 hours. This pair of headphones is also IPX4 Water Resistant Sports Headset with Mic. For less than $30 (CAD), it's definitely worth a buy. Anker SoundBuds Slim Bluetooth Earbuds Camera This camera is simply ground-breaking, the review will probably be live by next week. This is by far the best camera I've ever used and probably was my last hah. It's part of the digital medium format, it's a stunning, ergonomic and compact design. Hasselblad says because of its highest DxO score (102), this camera can capture everything. I can totally agree with that, it's quite amazing. The field kit shown here comes with 30mm lens, 45mm lens, 90mm lens inside a rugged pelican carrying case. Hasselblad X1D Field Kit Backpack I love Peak Design and watch out for a little surprise from them next week. Newly released in Black, this backpack is rugged, weatherproof and unmatched. This item can adapt your lifestyle easily whenever it is for photography or your everyday life. I just love how Peak Design makes products oriented around good design. Peak Design Everyday Backpack The Last Phone Case you will ever need Moment is easily one of my favorite brands out there. If you are into mobile photography, this is where you should invest your money on. Their products are durable for your everyday use and let's not talk about their lenses. The newly wide lens is incredibly well-made if you don't what's Moment yet. Check out their site now!

Chestnuts roasting on an open fire, Jack Frost nipping at your nose, you know the rest. It's that time, the most wonderful time of the year, at least for a good deal of the population around the globe. I have always had somewhat mixed feelings about Christmas, but it's growing on me since I move to the northern hemisphere where I can experience Christmas during the winter. In Brazil it was just the beginning of an awesome summer, less about the cozy fireplace and more about the beach and soaking up the sun. One thing is the same though, it's a time to exchange gifts and thanks to Amazon we have curated a gaggle of diverse gifts for every loved one on your list.

One T-Shirt (of your choice) by Ugmonk All Rights to Ugmonk About Ugmonk by Jeff Sheldon It all started with a simple idea – design fresh high-quality unique items. Just one month after I had graduated college, married my high-school sweetheart, moved to Burlington, VT, and started a full-time design job, I found myself brainstorming about launching my own brand centered around my love for typography and minimal design. I felt like the design culture at the time was really lacking in this area, and apparently this design sensibility connected with many people all around the world. What started as an outlet for my passion and entrepreneurial experiment quickly grew into much more than just selling a few shirts.

Holidays are here and if you are like me you haven't bought any gifts yet. Well for me today and tomorrow will be the days and I decided to share with you some products that I think they are cool and would make any designer/nerd like me happy. From books to video-games you might find something that interests you. Braun Travel Alarm Clock Black Braun's legendary travel alarm clocks were loved by many even after production stopped. Starting around April 20, 2011, the new licensed production of these clocks are available. This is the equivalent to the AB1A, originally designed by Dietrich Lubs with Dieter Rams in 1994. A pared down, very small but reliable clock, the AB1A had no snooze function, but a clear crisp crescendo alarm, and ran on one AA battery, many say, for a solid year. Silent German movement. Kindle Fire, Full Color 7" Multi-touch Display, Wi-Fi The Kindle Fire is a 7-inch tablet that links seamlessly with Amazon's impressive collection of digital music, video, magazine, and book services in one easy-to-use package. It boasts a great Web browser, and its curated Android app store includes most of the big must-have apps (such as Netflix, Pandora, and Hulu). The Fire has an ultra-affordable price tag, and the screen quality is exceptional for the price." - CNET Samsung I9250 Galaxy Nexus 16GB Unlocked World's First Smartphone to feature Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich and a 4.65" HD Super AMOLED display Rayman Origins Michel Ancel, celebrated creator of Rayman®, Beyond Good & Evil® and the Raving Rabbids® returns to his roots to bring us Rayman® Origins: an all-new 4-player co-op comic adventure set in a lush, 2D world, teeming with unexpected secrets and outlandish enemies. Einstein: His Life and Universe How did his mind work? What made him a genius? Isaacson's biography shows how his scientific imagination sprang from the rebellious nature of his personality. His fascinating story is a testament to the connection between creativity and freedom. Based on newly released personal letters of Einstein, this book explores how an imaginative, impertinent patent clerk -- a struggling father in a difficult marriage who couldn't get a teaching job or a doctorate -- became the mind reader of the creator of the cosmos, the locksmith of the mysteries of the atom and the universe. His success came from questioning conventional wisdom and marveling at mysteries that struck others as mundane. This led him to embrace a morality and politics based on respect for free minds, free spirits, and free individuals. The Alchemist The Alchemist is the magical story of Santiago, an Andalusian shepherd boy who yearns to travel in search of a worldly treasure as extravagant as any ever found. From his home in Spain he journeys to the markets of Tangiers and across the Egyptian desert to a fateful encounter with the alchemist. The story of the treasures Santiago finds along the way teaches us, as only a few stories have done, about the essential wisdom of listening to our hearts, learning to read the omens strewn along life's path, and, above all, following our dreams. Every few decades a book is published that changes the lives of its readers forever. The Alchemist is such a book. With over a million and a half copies sold around the world, The Alchemist has already established itself as a modern classic, universally admired. Paulo Coelho's charming fable, now available in English for the first time, will enchant and inspire an even wider audience of readers for generations to come. Braun Men's Analog Watch Black Face, Black Leather Band 38mm After a hiatus of many years, Braun watches and clocks are back in production in 2011 Braun's decision to re-issue their collection, including some of the rare LCD watches from the 1970's, gained approval from Dietrich Lubs, co-designer with Dieter Rams. Lubs credits their independent and functionally-oriented design for the continued relevance of the Braun timepiece collections, some thirty years after their introduction. Eventually, there will be production for the complete line of Braun watches and clocks, as well as new, exciting and innovative Braun products. The reappearance of Braun's complete wristwatch is a testament to the genius of the designers, and it hints at the numbers of loyal Dieter Rams adn Dietrich Lubs fans around the world. Canon EOS Rebel T3i 18 MP CMOS Digital SLR Camera and DIGIC 4 Imaging (Body Only) Canon has unveiled the EOS T3i (known in Europe as the EOS 600D) upper entry-level DSLR. It continues to use the 18MP CMOS sensor seen in the Rebel T2i (550D) but gains a tilt and swivel 1,040k dot LCD monitor like the one offered on the more expensive 60D. It also gains the ability to remotely control flashguns using its internal flash, a feature previously only featured on higher-end models. Alongside the camera, Canon is also launching the 18-55mm F3.5-5.6 IS II, a cosmetically revised version of its optically stabilized kit lens. We've had a chance to use pre-production versions of both and have prepared a Hands-On Preview of the EOS 600D including beta samples gallery.
