1. Your idea of a perfect evening is settling in for a good movie

Treating yourself to a soundbar with Dolby Atmos®, like the Bose Smart Ultra Soundbar, is not only giving yourself the gift of great sound, it also delivers the gifts of togetherness, quality time, and relaxation, too. This voice-enabled soundbar will elevate your movie nights with Dolby Atmos and TrueSpace technology, as well as speakers firing in virtually all directions to create a fully immersive, surround sound experience that will impress your friends.

But that’s not all — the Bose Smart Ultra Soundbar features significant enhancements in dialogue intelligibility, so you can better understand what they’re saying in that period piece drama you love without cranking the volume. And with app-less Bluetooth® grouping of multiple Bose products and simplified Bluetooth connections, it’s quicker and easier than ever to set up and transition between music, movies, and television. You’re sure to see this stylish soundbar on many holiday gift ideas lists this year.

2. You’ve always got earbuds in

Listening to audio through earbuds is a deeply personal experience. Everyone has different standards for sound, convenience, and comfort, so you should treat yourself to what you really want. That’s why noise cancelling earbuds, such as Bose QuietComfort Ultra Earbuds, are built to please everyone. They analyze your unique ear shape, adapt the sound and noise cancellation to it, personalizing the listening experience to always give you the best sound quality.

These earbuds deliver the world-class noise cancellation and comfort Bose is known for, and now they come with spatial audio to deliver a truly revolutionary listening experience. This means that in addition to creating a wider, more spacious soundscape in your head — so lifelike it feels like you can reach out and touch it — Bose always keeps you in the acoustic sweet spot, making sure you forget you’re even listening with earbuds at all.

3. You bring music with you wherever you go

If you’re the kind of person who loves to put on a pair of headphones and get lost in the music, gift yourself the Bose QuietComfort Ultra Headphones this holiday season. These are the banded Bose headphones you know and love, enhanced with spatial audio technology that works on any stereo content and comes with head tracking to bring the realest sound straight to your ears.

Even with all these bells and whistles, the Bose QuietComfort Ultra Headphones still focus on comfort. With a band designed with a low clamping force, plush protein leather earcups, and CustomTune technology inside that calibrates the headphone settings to your individual ear shape for a sound that is tailored to you, you can listen for hours in comfort. Plus, you won’t have to spend as much time fiddling with the headphones or connected devices for basic functions, as they include sensors that detect if they are on or off your head and react accordingly by pausing or switching off content.

All these features promise deeper immersion and extended focus on the job, at home, or on the go.

4. You’re the star of the show

One way to celebrate yourself this holiday is to embrace self-expression with a party speaker, like the S1 Pro+ Portable Bluetooth Speaker System. This wireless speaker system is ideal for musicians, as it lets you plug in a microphone or instrument with two channel inputs, plus a third for pre-recorded material you might layer into it. ToneMatch presets help it all come together by maximizing the sonic properties through equalization, as does additional sound treatment options for effects units and pedals.

You can even use the portable speaker system to be the DJ at your own parties. In fact, this was a leading consideration in the design of the S1 Pro+ and why the unit was filled with features like Bluetooth streaming with one-button pairing and inputs for wired sources, such as a DJ mixer, laptop, or CD player. Additionally, a single system can be employed as a satellite system for larger DJ events. That configuration gets a further boost with Auto EQ, which uses internal sensors to optimize equalization according to the physical position and orientation of the speaker.

5. People count on you to get the party started

The SoundLink Revolve+ II Bluetooth Speaker makes a great self-gift ahead of the holidays if you’re planning to host your friends and family. This sleek, portable Bluetooth speaker will set the mood for your holiday party with 360-degree sound projection that delivers deep, rich sound in every direction. You can spread the holiday cheer even more by simultaneously playing from two compatible speakers and switching on Party Mode (both speakers play in unison) or Stereo Mode (for dedicated left and right playback).

This cylindrical, stand-up speaker comes packed with more technology than meets the eye, Wi-Fi® and Bluetooth connectivity to access your personal library or favorite streaming service, and microphones for phone calls and voice control so you can operate it with ease. Plus, the 17 hours of battery life keeps it going nearly all day and night on a single charge.

6. You want to let your collection of CDs, tapes, and vinyl shine.

There’s perhaps no more nostalgic time of year than the holidays, as the energy, food, and music can bring you on a journey of past holiday memories. A speaker amplifier can bring you even closer to those memories with its ability to connect and channel both digital and analog sources, making it one of the best technology gift ideas this year. That means you can dust off your old CDs, cassette tapes, and vinyl records and experience them in a way like never before. Learn more about what does an amplifier do and check out all the capabilities!

It makes for a practical gift to yourself, too, because the Bose Music Amplifier connects to Apple Airplay 2, Chromecast, and Spotify Connect with no additional components needed. The amplifier can spread that sound far, too, with the ability to power two pairs of passive speakers at 125 watts per channel. If those speakers are made by Bose, that’s even better, because the amplifier offers EQ control.

Make every day a holiday

Treating yourself for the holidays with one of these gift ideas isn’t just an act of self-indulgence — it’s a reminder that you deserve love and appreciation. As you enjoy your new headphones, earbuds, or soundbar, let it inspire you to spread that generosity to those around you and, in turn, ignite the spirit of the holidays.
