Christmas Gifts 2017 – Living
Some gifts cannot be easily placed into a category – unique in their own right, they arise when thinking outside the box, and are therefore ideal for those who are hard to buy for.

The Studio3 Wireless Headphones from Beats (£300) boast Pure ANC noise cancelling technology and an impressive 22-hour battery life during fully-featured playback.
