DENDY PREMIUM MOVIE PASSES
Give the gift of movie luxury? This is the perfect gift for someone or that couple who has everything or is impossible to buy for. The Dendy Premium Lounge cinemas boast its own exclusive lounge bar area, full in-seat dining and bar service as well as opulent electric reclining seats.
Congratulations to our FUSE DENDY PASS winners. Look out for our next ticket giveaway in January 2019.
The gift they'll use every day. We all love our work coffee and having your own cup beats drinking out of cardboard any day. You'll also be giving a lovely gift to the planet and the environment. It's a win-win. Most of these cups are available at your local shopping centre, Speciality Shops, Myer, Kmart or online.
Inventive and colourful reusable coffee cups are taking their place in the line-up of orders at your local cafe, thanks to the 'brew'-haha about disposable coffee cups created by ABC's War on Waste program. Popular brands include KeepCups and Frank Green, but there's hot competition from established homeware brands Avanti, Thermos and Bodum, along with smaller players.
To help you join the revolution, CHOICE recruited five caffeine addicts to road test nine popular styles and give their verdict on ease of use, design, leakage and other attributes you won't necessarily see on the company websites. We also lab-tested how well they retained heat.
PRIDE HUSH PUPPIES
A gift of pride. The Australian Hush Puppies team have created a unique, limited edition design that is set to be the official shoe of Mardi Gras. The casual unisex sneaker pays homage to the Pride flag with glittery rainbow stripes featured in the design along with Hush Puppies signature comfort technology. To further support the LGBTQI community, Hush Puppies will be donating 50% of profits from rainbow show sales to the Sydney Gay and Lesbian Mardi Gras community grants programs which offers financial support to LGBTQI community organisations.
Something a little personal and you'll find there pretty much everywhere.

TITAN UNDERWATER DRONE
The latest photography and filmmaking tool, the Titan is capable of remotely diving up to 150 metres. It uses six powerful thrusters combined with the latest firmware to let you get super smooth footage and beautiful images even in strong currents. A 4K sensor sits behind a 160º wide-angle lens — which can be augmented with colour-correcting filters — capturing 8 megapixel stills while sending a 1080p live stream back to the surface. Simple to use and with super bright 3,000 lumen LED lights you can illuminate even the darkest depths of the ocean. The Titan comes with a hardshell carrying case and a kick-ass four hours of battery life.
FAB RETRO-TV SPEAKER & CLOCK
Add a touch of retro flair to your life with this gorgeous QTV Wireless Bluetooth Speaker and Alarm Clock. The powerful 5 watt speaker will provide the party soundtrack, plus the built-in custom alarm clock and timer will ensure you’re always up and at ‘em on time. The working screen actually lights up and does stuff, like show the time or, if you’re listening to music, a record player. It even displays a quick blast of static when you switch modes! It has five hours of playtime, and it’s available in four funky retro colour options: peppermint green, scarlet red, vernal white or aestival blue.
