While it’s always the thought that counts in the giving or receiving, it’s even more exciting when you get a present that you can find plenty of use for in your life. So before you rush out to buy another slogan mug or flimsy photo frame, consider the superuseful line of homeware that Brother has to offer you. Given that each piece is designed with an approach that puts its user first, your loved ones will appreciate your gift for its durability, practicality and life-changing capabilities. We won’t be surprised if you end up buying one more set to keep for yourself!

Despite its compact size, it’s equipped to the hilt with a range of heavy-duty features. Simply connect to your home Wi-Fi network, and you can choose from double-sided printing, scanning, faxing or copying functions. It promises to give you high resolution colours so your images come out looking vibrant and lifelike, and also accommodates direct photo printing from an external storage drive. Available at $480 (with GST).

Sewing serves a different purpose for different people. For some, it’s a way of relaxing and seeing their imagination come to life in the form of fashionable creations that they can proudly wear. For others, sewing serves a practical purpose to get clothing to fit better and look better without spending too much time or money at the tailors. So whatever your reason for sewing – or level of expertise for that matter – you’ll enjoy Brother’s new user-friendly range of sewing machines.
