Want to be a MuchBetter giver? What’s better than getting a great present? Well, we think it’s the feeling you get when you give a great present. When you know the person you’re giving it to is going to be totally bowled over by your generosity, thoughtfulness and that you know exactly what to get them. Plus they might let you have  go on it too…

We know a lot of our members are ahead of the curve on a lot of the latest techie gadgets and tech so we’ve put a list together of what to get the guy in your life who appears to have everything…

Grillbot

The Grillbot takes the hassle out of cleaning up after your big BBQ. All you have to do is put the little guy on the grubby grill, press a button and watch him go. The perfect after-dinner entertainment! It’s got three strong electric motors driving the stiff wire brushes and a rechargeable lithium battery, which runs a sophisticated CPU chip in the Grillbot’s brain, that controls the movement, speed, and direction of the brushes.

Jaybird X3 headphones for running

These are super lightweight in-ear headphones you’ll barely feel are there. With a massive 8-hour playtime, fully charged, you’ll have to be some kind of Iron Man to literally run these bad boys down. They have Bluetooth and you can take calls while listening to music by simply using the intuitive, raised button controls. Compatible with any Bluetooth device including iPhone, Apple Watch, iPod Touch, iPad, iPad mini, Android, Windows, Blackberry, Android Wear Smartwatches, PC, Mac and gaming devices, they’re sweat-proof and water resistant. If you’re in a hurry, a 20min charge will last for one hour.

The LG OLED C7 television

This 65-inch TV is the absolute king of TVs at the moment.

Boasting revolutionary energy efficiency and a sleek, ultra-slim design, LG OLED TVs deliver maximum picture quality and minimum power consumption. It’s the first of its kind with Dolby Vision™ and Dolby Atmos® combined within one television – the result is a unique cinematic experience for your home with incredible picture and sound quality.

Roku Streaming Stick Plus

Over 150,000 channels are packed into this little stick (well not really, but you know what we mean). Just plug this into the HDMI socket of your HDTV, connect to your Wifi and you’re good to go. Watch blockbuster films, binge watch on Netflix in crisp 4K quality. The advanced wireless receiver gives you 4x the range and a stronger signal for smooth streaming, even in rooms further from your router. With the free Roku app you can turn your iPhone or Android into the ultimate streaming companion. Download it to control the Roku player, search with your phone keyboard or use the Private Listening function where you can use your phones headphone to listen to your program as loudly as you like. You can also use the app to cast photos, videos and music to your TV.

OjO Commuter Scooter

Not only is this great to say out loud (Comyooooter Scooooter), it looks amazing and rides brilliantly too. Seriously how many people in your office have one? We guess it’s somewhere around zero. This is truly the transport of a tastemaker. It’s eco-friendly, you don’t need a licence for it, it tops out at 20mph (so you can cruise past those guys on fixies) and will go for 25 miles on a single charge. It also comes with a wireless key fob, so you can hang it on the same keyring as your MuchBetter fob too. Other features include dual Bluetooth speakers and the on-board charger plugs directly into any 100V wall socket.
