From a DIY gift to a cool gadget, here are some inspirations for choosing a perfect gift for each of your special people.

Moreover, you can control the budget yourself.

In the holiday season like this, Mi A1 is the perfect choice to capture all the special moments you have while celebrating the season.

It also allows users to focus on subjects in the foreground while blurring the background, creating beautiful portrait shots of people. In addition, an improved Beautify mode that makes selfies look more natural, now works with the both the front 5MP camera as well as the 12MP dual rear camera, so selfies during the holiday season will always appear perfect. Mi A1 supports 2x optical zoom, which makes photos of distant subjects remain clear, while 10x digital zoom is also supported.
