1. Fitness Tracker
Fitness has become the mantra of life and there can’t be anything better than gifting your friend a wellness companion! Fitness trackers can track workouts, heart rates, calories burned, active minutes & total steps taken. You can even receive texts and calls at a glance even when you’re on the move. You might want to consider gifting your friend a fitness track with an extended warranty plan that can help the device last longer. Misfit Ray, Moov Now, Fitbit Alta HR, Fitbit Charge 2, Fitbit Iconic, Garmin Vivosmart 3, Apple Watch Series 3, etc are a few to choose from. Starting at Rs 4,000 you can buy these on Amazon India.
(The OnsiteGo Extended Warranty plan for fitness trackers can be purchased from Amazon India, depending on the price range of the fitness tracker. It covers all mechanical and electronic defects that are covered under the standard manufacturer’s warranty)

These are waterproof, so one can just stay relaxed about the occasional splash of water on the speaker. You could go for the UE ROLL Wireless Mobile Bluetooth Speaker, VICSTIN bluetooth speaker, Cambridge soundworks, AYL Soundfit Poratable speaker or the JBL Charge 3 – waterproof portable bluetooth speaker.

5. E-Book Reader
For someone who eats, sleeps, breathes only books, there can be nothing better than an E-reader, especially for one who is always on the go and loves to carry books. With an E-reader, your friend need not carry books around. It will make his/her travelling really comfortable and interesting. The Kindle is available on Amazon starting at Rs 6,000.
