The Luxury Collection - - Sound of Music -

For those who are al­ways on the run, re­ly­ing on their dig­i­tal tool­kits has be­come very es­sen­tial. For many young starters, en­trepreneurs, self-em­ployed work­ers and oth­ers, in­vest­ing in high qual­ity pro­duc­tiv­ity or cre­ativ­ity dig­i­tal tools is al­ways a steep choice. This make th­ese im­por­tant dig­i­tal tools a per­fect gift to boost their pro­fes­sional lives to the next level.

Some of the top tools to gift this hol­i­day sea­son which come to mind are:

Ever­note – Al­lows you to cap­ture, or­ga­nize, and share notes from any­where pow­ered by cloud based sync­ing across de­vices. The in­di­vid­ual premium sub­scrip­tion for this con­ve­nience is Rs.1500 per year mak­ing it a great gift.

Dropbox – Th­ese days we pro­duce lot of con­tent, be it thou­sands of pho­tographs or videos or doc­u­ments. This calls for a dig­i­tal locker and stor­age to store the gi­ga­bytes of data we pro­duce ev­ery month. Dropbox is one of the most pop­u­lar and re­li­able cross plat­form and de­vice stor­age ser­vices and can be a much needed gift any­one would hope for. The an­nual sub­scrip­tion for in­di­vid­u­als starts from US$8 per month for 1Ter­abyte or 1024 GB of stor­age space go­ing up to al­most un­lim­ited US$20 per user per month if it’s an ad­vanced busi­ness sub­scrip­tion.

Adobe Cre­ative Cloud – If the per­son you are gift­ing him­self is gifted and one of those cre­ative folks in art, de­sign and web, Adobe Cre­ative Cloud is a per­fect gift to have un­in­ter­rupted cre­ativ­ity flow­ing with the most use­ful tools to un­leash the same. The most ba­sic sub­scrip­tion starts from ₹ 8112 per year for a pho­tog­ra­phy app to ₹40,584 for ac­cess to all the Adobe Cre­ative Suite apps.

Mi­crosoft Of­fice – Of­fice has be­come a part and par­cel of our work life from writ­ing ar­ti­cles, let­ters to us­ing email to cre­at­ing those ex­penses or in­voices or plan­ning tools in spread­sheets to the Pow­erpoint pitches or pre­sen­ta­tions. This could be the ul­ti­mate gift which also in­cludes Onenote (sim­i­lar to Ever­note) as well as Onedrive stor­age (1 TB cloud stor­age sim­i­lar to Dropbox). The an­nual sub­scrip­tion costs ₹3629 for a Per­sonal plan or ₹4619 for Home in­stal­la­tion up to 5 de­vices.

This col­lec­tion of most es­sen­tial dig­i­tal ser­vices should help one live a premium un­in­ter­rupted dig­i­tal life al­most daily. Thus, of­fer mean­ing­ful al­ter­na­tives break­ing away from cliched gifts we of­fer in phys­i­cal life. If price is not a prob­lem, a bun­dle of at least one ser­vice from mu­sic, movies and pro­duc­tiv­ity cat­e­gories should be the best gift one could pos­si­bly of­fer this hol­i­day sea­son. The re­ceiver will surely think of you and thank you al­most ev­ery time when he or she uses th­ese ser­vices.
