Diamonds must’ve been your mom’s best friend but now you can tell everything about a girl by her choice of gadget(s). Life isn’t getting any easier for any of us but if you’re smart enough about the gadgets you own, it definitely shouldn’t get any harder. Whether its upping your #selfie game with the LuMee Case or finding a permanent solution to the unwanted facial hair you might have, if there’s anything you need to invest in, it’s your stash of gadgets.
1.iPhone 7 Plus
In 2016, the most hyped event of the year was, by no surprise, Apple’s September iPhone announcement. It doesn’t come cheap but with a 5.5-inch display, active noise cancellation with a dedicated mic and a DSLR-like camera feature to it, this product should be on top of your to-buy list. For all those young professionals, especially in the world of digital media, this one’s worth investing in. You can even buy one online at daraz.pk.

3. Phillips DIY laser hair removal
There is no shame in admitting that unwanted hair is almost every Pakistani woman’s top grievance. All those hours spent threading and waxing the hair off of our faces could be spent relaxing and watching a hilarious episode of Modern Family. Enter Philips DIY laser hair removal. This gadget saves you the weekly trip to the salon or the monthly expensive appointment at the laser clinic and gives you professional results in the comfort of your own home.
4. LuMee case for selfies
Nailed your makeup and have the perfect blowout to go with your #vintage look on your bestie’s #nikkahceremony this afternoon? Occasions like these are when you need a Lumee Case THE most. Developed by a professional photographer, the LED lighting on both the left and right sides of the case provides you with a soft and beautiful light. This and features like a dimmer button to control the intensity of the light output, alongside its tough and impact resistant plastic (for those moments of extra excitement when we tend to get extra-clumsy) is why you should get this cool widget for your phone right away.
5. Infinity charge 2+ – Speaker and portable mobile charger
Repeat after us: two birds one stone. Number 5 on our list is the infinity charge 2+ that brings a concert-level musical performance to the living room. Its passive bass radiators deliver musical clarity at breath-taking volumes. Music sources may be connected with or without a cable—this device pairs your Bluetooth devices, including phones, tablets, laptops, and portable music players. A rechargeable lithium-ion battery provides up to 10 hours playtime, while a USB connector can charge any external device. If this doesn’t convince you for an investment, we don’t know what will.
