What to buy the crew for X-mas when your wallet’s ballin’


The holidays have arrived and y’know what that means—it’s time to be part of the benevolent gang.

Most days of the year, our energy is at peak “treat ’ya self” levels. The holidays are a perfect excuse to be selfless and give back to our support system. Yeah, it’s the thought that counts when it comes to presents. But if our wallet’s thick enough, why not be our group’s Santa this year? What better way to celebrate than giving back to folks who’s always been at our side in this depressing hell year.

Whether they enjoy reading most days, lying around buried in books or prefer working their glutes to the tune of new Ariana Grande, there’s always the perfect gift lying around somewhere. Need some couple of ideas? Here’s what to buy from The Loop by Power Mac Center if you’re feeling generous.

The crew’s de facto book hoarder

Ah, to be a bookworm a.k.a. to read and find pockets of time even in the busiest of days. If your friend is the kind who doesn’t like carrying loads of books around and prefers their trusty laptop (or handheld) to hold their e-library, then you might want to invest in an external memory like the Seagate BackUp Plus Slim that automatically backs up files in a single click. With a 2TB capacity, that’s like 200 film adaptations (legally downloaded) and plenty of PDFs in pocket form.

Shout out to that baller homie

If sport is their thing, then they’ll never have to worry about their workout playlist hyping the mood while sweating it all out. This Defunc Travel Portable Bluetooth Speaker is perfect for playing white noise on hot yoga sessions or to jam while doing at-home spin classes. With up to five hours of playtime, you no longer need to recharge in between workouts so you can just focus on your fitness goals.

Enter, “content is life” babe

Your vlogger friend is ready to take on the internet so have their best voice ready and recorded in this Sennheiser Memory Mic Wireless Microphone tailored to connect seamlessly on any smartphone. With a fantastic sound from strong connection and an unlimited range, this small but capable microphone can work for four straight hours whether you’re inside the studio or at the garage.

That film photographer of the crew

If they’re the type who likes photos with hazy instant-film effects, let them embrace their analog artsy side more with the Fujifilm Instax Liplay. Plus, they’d have more control with its built-in LCD monitor to preview moments. What’s more? They can print audio via QR code, which they can listen to from the Fujifilm Liplay app. Sending tangible audio messages just got real.

The friend who’s always hyping their mixtape

Hunting for a pair of wireless headphones? Look no further ’cause JBL has you covered with its Live 400BT on-ear headphones. With Ambient Aware function and TalkThru technology, you don’t need to remove them to hear outside sounds or talk to friends—just press the button and it’ll finetune its powerful bass for a complete eargasmic experience. Up to 24 hours of streaming? That’s certainly a whole day function. What’s not to like?
