Music lovers

Did you know that Guinness World Records lists Bing Crosby’s performance of “White Christmas” as the bestselling single of all time? That’s because this timeless holiday hit has brought joy to generations of listeners since 1942 and demonstrates the power that music has to inspire, uplift, energise and motivate. And when you improve the quality of the musical sounds that you’re hearing, you can enhance the entire holiday experience.

The first great tool to add spark to your holiday signal is the SoundLink Revolve+ II portable speaker. This true 360° Bluetooth speaker sends deep, full sound in every direction, even bouncing it off the walls of the room for maximum immersion. Bose SimpleSync™ technology also means you can pair the speaker with others throughout the house to keep the tunes humming in every room.

Or perhaps you’re in the mood to take a deep, meditative dive into your music world and shut out the rest. Slip on a pair of noise cancelling headphones, like Bose QuietComfort® 45, and you may feel closer to every note than ever before. For a more discreet option, the QuietComfort® Earbuds fit easily within the ear and feel light enough make you forget they’re even there, weighing just 8.5 g each. The wireless design of both of these means that they won’t get tangled in scarves and ribbons, or hands and paws.

Outdoor adventurers

Warm summer weather may draw the most people outside, but real outdoor enthusiasts embrace winter every bit as fervently for its own unique pleasures, from skiing, snowboarding and sledging to skating, snowshoeing and sculpting. During this season, music, soundscapes and audio instruction can deepen the connection with nature, inspire feelings of solace and add fuel to your tank for a long trek through the woods or a quick spin on the ice.

For these situations, you need something rugged, portable, light and long-lasting. The SoundLink Flex Bluetooth® speaker ticks all of these boxes. It’s a dust and waterproof speaker, and a single charge of the long-lasting battery gives up to 12 hours of playtime. Plus, at just 589.7 g, it won’t weigh down whatever you clip it to. The SoundLink Flex’s built-in microphone also lets you check in with your loved ones waiting back home while you’re out experiencing all the natural wonders of the season.

Fitness fanatics

For some, alleviating holiday stress means watching a movie to unwind. But fitness fanatics prefer to sweat it out, and music inspires them to squeeze out a little more. Like music, exercise is a great mood booster, and the holidays may require a larger dose than usual.

Fortunately, Bose Sport Earbuds can keep pace when the intensity ramps up at the gym or on the street, helping the listener maintain focus, form and direction. These secure earbuds stay in thanks to the umbrella shape, silicone material and extended flexible wings of Bose StayHear™ Max tips. As one of your holiday gifts, they could help your loved ones rise to new levels of health and fitness in the new year.

Entertainment enthusiasts

George Lucas had it right when he said, “Sound is half the experience”. Great sound is essential to enjoying films, shows and games, especially spatialized sound, which creates the impression of a three-dimensional environment. The most cutting-edge audio and video technology makes full use of this to immerse you in the scene as never before. Without hearing the difference, you may not realise what you’re missing.

You can bring every sound to life with Bose Soundbar 900. It creates a cinema-like Dolby Atmos® sound experience at home through Bose TrueSpace™ technology, which spreads sound throughout the room, even for media mixed before the advent of Atmos. Switch it on, and The Polar Express may seem to rumble up at your very sofa. Enhance the immersion further with a pair of Bose Surround Speakers 700, and add more rumble at the low end with a Bass Module 700 subwoofer.

No matter how you celebrate the holidays, sound will be a part of it. Raising the quality of the sounds you’re hearing can improve the experience considerably, and with these Bose holiday gifts, you can keep the holiday cheer going on repeat.
