Nothing Phone (1) ($648)
From Nothing Store
Yes, iPhones and Samsungs may be sleek-looking but their aesthetics leave much to be desired. If the special man in your life loves pushing the boundaries of looks, then the Nothing Phone (1) might just be the perfect gift. It's a decent mid-range smartphone but it's buoyed by one highlight: the glyph interface. These LED strips tucked under glass backing of the phone light up whenever there's a notification – these you can even customise according to who's calling. From message to the music playing to the phone charging status, the glyph interface on the Nothing Phone (1) makes it a novel and visually-arresting addition to your giftee's tech haul.
