Sennheiser Wireless Headphones
If you are planning to buy a new wireless headphone for your sister Sennheiser HD 4.40 BT is what we recommend to you.
These are one of the best wireless headphones in this price bracket.

Its sleek frame not only makes it more comfortable to wear, it also makes a statement of timeless class. Battery life on the HD4.40 is wonderful but still, you will get the detachable cable along with it incase the battery runs out.

GoPro Hero Waterproof Action Camera
Water, snow, mud this tiny camera can withstand all of these elements so she can go ahead and shoot her adventurous journey and share with
family and friends. It is small and light enough to carry anywhere. The Hero has an understated smooth dark grey finish and feels extremely well made, which isn't something you can say about some similarly priced cameras. The 10-megapixel camera images are quite good, you'll be pleased with the smooth Full HD 1080p footage that the Hero is capable of recording. It is waterproof (down to 33ft or 10m) without the need for a housing, which means there's nothing to get in the way of the built-in microphone, making audio quality that bit better. GoPro's QuikStories app enables you to upload images when you're on the move. As well as transferring videos and images via Wi-Fi, the app can be used to adjust all the Hero's settings and hosts an almost-instant live feed, allowing you to position the GoPro Hero remotely and hit record should you wish. It can't replace your traditional camera but given the toughness and durability, it will be one heck of a choice for the adventurous junkies.

BOSE Soundlink Color Bluetooth SpeakerII
Tough speakers with the perfect sound is what we can say about these compact Bluetooth speakers by Bose.
Your sister doesn't have to fear about carrying them around the pool or to the park as they are water resistant and are ready to for any adventure. The IPX-4 certification makes it splashproof, though not waterproof. Or to put it another way, it should be able to spend some time out in the rain and survive. They have a soft-touch silicone exterior which feels good but attracts dust aswell. They have an in-built microphone so that you can receive calls. It weighs around 581gm which is ok keeping in mind the case dimensions ie: 2.2x5x5.2 inches. In short, these can be your sister's go-to speaker with bold sound, wherever she needs it.
