Xiaomi makes a lot of minimalist accessories under their sister brand Mijia, which we have picked here, and we also added some more minimalist-inspired gadgets for a good measure.
DESKTOP FAN + HUMIDIFIER
Chill out! This bladeless fan will cool you off on a hot summer day with a breeze of fresh air. What more can you expect? Well, in this case you also get a humidifier that is neatly tucked in the back of the device.
You can use it with water, or drop a few drops of essential oils to amplify the smell.
10,000mAh POWER BANK
What's better than a big capacity power bank? A small power bank that you can easily carry around, of course! It weighs less than a soda can, at 210 grams or approximately 7.5 ounces.
Price: $27.99 – 33.99
You better watch out! This minimalist watch from Xiaomi means business. Their products are known for high quality and relatively low price.
This watch comes with options of faux leather or metallic bands. No unnecessary logos or even numbers on the face – but let's be rational, we are all capable adults and we can see tell the time without them.
A clean and simple stainless steel thermos bottle to keep your drinks warm. It comes with a strainer to filter out the particles that you don't want to ingest, which makes it suitable for infusion. Comes in three matte color options: white, grey or pink.
Your bag already has a lot of stuff in it, so why clutter it with more big stuff? This little umbrella is quite portable, but the diameter is 88 cm nonetheless – just enough to sufficiently cover a mindful individual.
I like when my belongings get wet in the rain, said nobody ever. This professional-looking backpack has multiple compartments to help you organize your stuff better (it fits laptops up to 15.6″ in size!), and being a Xiaomi Mijia universe products it comes with a distinguishable simplistic design.
XIAOMI FOLDABLE BLUETOOTH HEADPHONES
These lightweight over-ear Bluetooth headphones from Xiaomi are geared with lossless apt-X, 4.1 protocol and a silicone headband for the maximum comfort. Their 400 mAh battery allow for up to 10 hours of playtime with 2.5 hours to a full charge.
Price: $119.00 – 169.90
A simple lamp will tie the room together. There are two options for the color of the light – we don't get the adjustable color here unfortunately, and there is an upgrade available if you want it to be dimmable.
CHEF KNIFE SET
It is easy to be skeptical of the quality of chef knives from AliExpress, but these are reported to be heavy and sharp right out of the box by multiple people.
A measuring tape does not have to be a boring ugly roll that you would usually see being used by a typical contractor. These are more in line with what a higher-end tailor with slick grey hair would measure you with in his downtown Manhattan store that smells like rich mahogany and expensive whiskey.
A paper knife isn't the first thing that you would think of when it comes to minimalist accessories, but in case you need one for whatever clerical needs may arise.
Another option for a backpack – this one with an over-shoulder strap. It is not completely waterproof, just water-resistant. There is a USB port on the outside. Albeit small, it is quite roomy for smaller gadgets to make more room in your pockets.
XIAOMI ROOM GAUGE
This room gauge uses E-ink (similar technology as Kindle), which makes it remarkably energy-efficient – the battery can last for about a year! It tells you the data you may want to know about the room you are in: humidity and temperate, and the little face in the corner will objectively indicate how it feels about the conditions.
Another simple watch option. This one in a budget category, so don't expect too much from it other than a fashion accessory, although the reviews are positive.
