Maybe you know someone who really, really
loves Apple products. The clean designs of iMacs, MacBooks, iPhones, iPads, and Mac Mini's scream modern minimalism and functionality. With Apple as my co-pilot, I've gathered a selection of gift ideas catering to the Mac addict sensibilities...
Amphion Ion+ speakers ($1,280)
: These Finnish Speakers are endorsed by Bruce Sweiden (famous Audio Engineer of Michael Jackson Fame) and are a perfect match to an iMac computer. Did I mention they are available in a variety of colors
Heckler OneLessDrop ($25)
: This annodized piece of recycled aluminium neatly holds you MacBooks power cord, and even has room for another below - like your iPhone/iPod cable. A simple, yet effective gift for the well organized Mac user.

($100): This Braun Digital radio/clock evokes the designs of Dieter Rams - who certainly influenced Apple products. Help your Mac addict get in touch with his/her roots.
