Barisieur – the coffee-brewing alarm clock

The premium alarm clock, which has been backed by the Virgin Start Up fund, is ideal for the entrepreneur who struggles to get out of bed without a hot drink in hand.

It eases you into your morning with the soothing sounds of bubbling water along with the smell of the freshly brewed coffee or loose leaf tea.

The product was designed with a digital detox in mind – replacing the impulse to automatically reach for your phone in the morning with a cup of coffee.

AYO – glasses to beat jetlag

Gift ideas for entrepreneurs

Any jet-setting businessman or woman will know the impact of travelling around the world frequently.

But AYO’s light therapy glasses could be a perfect gift for them as the wearable tech helps the user to sleep better, beat jet lag and get more energy.

The headset was developed with the human body-clock in mind and emits soft blue light, similar light to the summer sun, to gently adjust the users internal clock.

The device comes with three different modes for boosting you energy, optimising  sleeping cycles, or traveling long haul.

 

Peach fitness class – get out the office and exercising

The Peach fitness app connects users with qualified personal trainers and wellness specialists.

Each session will include a combination of rage-relieving boxing, soothing yoga, gentle exercise and massage to work through any niggling aches and pains.

Peach says the stress-relieving workout classes will help users feel more centred and refreshed.

A Christmas package features an anti-desk de-stress class aimed at improving both physical and mental wellness.

 

Qi AirBank wireless charger – recharging your batteries

Keeping device batteries fully charged while on the move is always a challenge.

The Qi AirBank wireless charger allows smartphones and devices to be charged from a single wireless port.

Wireless charging uses the principle of inductive charging, where an electromagnetic field passes electrical power from coils in the charging pad to those in a device’s battery.

The concept has been used for electric toothbrushes for years but its potential is only now beginning to be realised for handheld devices.

The Qi Airbank, made by electronics manufacturer QDOS, is compatible with the latest Apple and Samsung mobile devices.

 

Emma Jefferys business coaching – for the wannabe entrepreneur

Office relationships, sexual misconduct

For any friends or relatives who fancy themselves as an entrepreneur but could use a little help, Emma Jefferys offers a one-to-one coaching package with Action Woman.

Similar to life coaching, business coaching can help entrepreneurs to achieve their goals, set new targets or help launch a new business venture.

Ms Jefferys, who worked as an advertising planner for 20 years, is an accredited coach and licensed NLP practitioner living in Tunbridge Wells – where she holds workshops throughout the year.

Perhaps this could be the best Christmas gift they ever get – and one that keeps giving.
