Entrepreneurs often have eclectic taste.
They have bright ideas and run companies that change entire industries. For anyone looking for a surprising high-end gift, here are a few picks to consider. Each of these electric products are designed for discerning entrepreneurs.
1. Polk Legend L800 Speakers ($2,999 each)
These floor-standing speakers in walnut or ash sound authentic and organic. The key difference is that you can hear distinct elements in your music.
2. Martin GPC Special Koa X Series Grand Performance Acoustic-Electric Guitar ($599)
My favorite brand of guitars, this Martin model uses a unique Koa wood pattern that's dark and unique. The sound is unusually rich with a long sustain. There's also a tuner built-in.
3. Hisense's H8F 4K Android TV 65-Inch ($599)
This low-cost 4K television has Google Android TV built-in so you can access movies, games, and apps easily. The TV also works with the Google Assistant and Amazon Alexa bots.
4. Trek Allant+ 8 Electric Bike ($3,800)
A powerful 500-watt battery in this Trek electric bike lasted 100 miles on a charge in my tests. The Bosch Performance Line CX 250w drive system means smooth acceleration and speeds up to 20 miles per hour.
5. Danner Mountain 600 Enduroweave Boots ($120)
The grip on the bottom of this hiking boot (made by Vibram) is stable enough for wet, slick paths in the cold but is also breathable enough for warm, hot weather.
6. Dell XPS 13 2-in-1 Laptop ($1,000)
The 13.4-inch display on this light and powerful laptop uses HDR color tech, so movies and games will pop. It folds into a tablet or a tent for watching movies.
7. Panasonic LUMIX S1 Camera ($2,500)
A reasonably priced full-frame camera for serious photographers, the LUMIX S1 captures stunningly clear images at 24.2 megapixels and records 4K video.
8. Fjallraven Expedition Down Lite Jacket ($500)
Designed to keep you warm even in subzero temps, this winter jacket is not so bulky that it impedes movement, but is "expedition" ready and stays warm on a winter hike.
9. Wahoo Fitness KICKR Bike ($3,500)
One of the most "realistic" exercise bikes around, the Wahoo Fitness KICKR Bike is positioned low, more like an actual road bike, and has authentic shifters.
10. Coddle Mattress ($550)
Coddle uses a unique technology to control airflow and temperature on this 11-inch thick mattress. Match it with the Pixel Platform Bed base, which has two USB ports and two power outlets on both sides.
