Here we are, in the second half of November, so a decent time to offer you our great value gift ideas for those special loved ones this Christmas. We’ve selected some all-round favourites, that could be an ideal present for anyone on your list at the ‘under £50’ mark. Our top pick today is the stylish Denver DAB-38 Vintage Design DAB+ Radio Alarm Clock in vintage brown or gun metal grey colour options.
What’s so good about it?
The Denver DAB-38 digital radio in dark wood colour or glossy dark grey at £49.99 +P&P combines a classic vintage design with modern technology. The retro style with rounded edges and old school controls, makes this little system a modern classic for the music lover. Pick up and play wherever you are using the smart carry handle. Switch between DAB and FM radio, and select the station you require, which is clearly displayed on the 2.8” LCD screen. The dual alarm clock gives you the option to wake up by radio or buzzer, depending on your mood. Other features include a snooze button, sleep function, stereo headphone jack and battery back-up. It’s more than just a radio, it’s an all round companion.
Who will it actually suit as a special present?
We often think that the younger generations don’t listen to the radio anymore and that absolutely everything is done on their phone now. The fact is that with battery and storage constraints on phones, as well as WiFi and connection issues in certain areas, the DAB+ and FM radios are still really handy choice for all ages. The fact that you can tune in to all manner of specialist music stations that we may never have heard of, with thousands now on offer from all over the world, the DAB radios are a popular gadget. Add to that that we all need an alarm clock and there’s a move away from using our mobile phones for our alarm, for all sorts of health and social reasons, the DAB- 38’s added extras like the radio or buzzer alarm really make sense. The retro vintage look is really popular now with the generations who remember the originals and also with younger, more trendy loved ones who love to celebrate the oldies but goldies’ style!
Will it fit in with my loved one’s décor style?
There are admittedly, so many interiors styles nowadays, from monochrome Scandi, to colourful vintage, eclectic bohemian, industrial or your more classic contemporary styles. All then in various popular colour schemes like millennial pink, indigo blue, slate grey or trusty white. So, how do you know these little style icons will fit in? Well if you think about your loved one’s home and compare the two colour options, you’ll be able to visualise which home, room and furnishings will suit the more vintage, brown wood style and which would suit the more modern sleek glossy dark grey version. We love that they’re so versatile, bang on trend and will fit into any interiors look.
