Wireless Noise Cancelling Headphones are amazing when a person needs to tune out the world and be in their own bubble for a while. They make for a great gift for:
- New parents who don’t want to wake up their partners while they are up in the middle of the night with the baby and need to be watching reruns of The Office to stay awake
- New parents who need to sleep through a baby’s cries in the middle of the night while their partner is taking care of the baby
- Someone who travels often
- Someone who commutes on public transportation
- Someone who plays video games (though, in some cases if they play multiplayer games, you may want to consider a headset with microphone)
- Someone who enjoys watching movies alone
- Someone who enjoys long workouts/ runs
- Someone who works in a noisy environment but needs quiet to think (e.g., software engineers, game developers, artists, etc.)
There are a lot of options and they can vary in price:
