Jenny here, Pure's Media Relations Specialist. When asked which Pure product I'd recommend as a Christmas gift I went for the Evoke Mio by Orla Kiely Abacus Edition. Not least because I have one at home adorning my kitchen shelves and blending nicely with my grey/yellow colourscheme but also this gorgeous and stylish digital/FM radio is the best sounding portable I've heard.
I like to listen to Absolute Radio whilst cooking and maybe a bit of Smooth Christmas to get me into the festive mood! The kitchen timer really comes in handy when baking with the kids as things can get quite chaotic - flour, icing sugar and fingers everywhere! One touch of the dedicated timer button and a turn of the dial to select the minutes is all it takes to ensure all our hard work doesn't go up in flames. It's so easy to switch between stations too. I only have to turn my back for a second and my children have changed over to THEIR favourite music.
The Evoke also came in handy on our summer holiday in Devon. With the ChargePAK E1 giving hours of portable listening we connected up the iPod and listened to our tunes as we barbequed on the campsite into the night.
The Evoke Mio by Orla Kiely also comes in the signature stem print and is available exclusively from John Lewis for £149.99. The battery pack is an optional £34.99.
I think this radio would be such a great gift for anyone either already hooked on radio or for those new to digital listening. It's packed with great features including pause and control scrolling text, a striking auto-dimming OLED display, an alarm and a USB connector for future product upgrades.
