If you can't get enough of warm apple cider, gingerbread men and the Charlie Brown Christmas album, then you love the holidays just as much as we do. In whatever corner of the world you live in, whether you're covered in 12-inches of snow or lounging in 65-degree weather, we hope the spirit of Christmas has you in the cheeriest of moods. Welcome to Day Four of our very special 12 Days of Freshness Gift Guide.

Beats Electronics was formally established in 2008 when they partnered with Monster Cables to release the very first pair of Beats by Dr. Dre Studio headphones. From there, the Culver City-based company went on to make premium consumer headphones, earphones and speakers, and later, the Beats Audio software technology and the Beats Music streaming service. You might recognize their products from pretty much everywhere. Earlier this year, Beats was acquired by Apple for $3 billion and boasts over $1.5 in revenue. Let's be real, you're probably listening to Drake right now on a pair of Beats as you read this.

Recently, Beats Electronics got together with Japanese designer, streetwear icon, producer and DJ Hiroshi Fujiwara to create a very special collection featuring the Beats Solo2 headphones and Beats Pill speaker. The fragment design x Beats by Dre range features their most popular products customized in sleek gloss silver, matte white and a splash of fragment's signature blue. The limited edition design compliments the premium sound and super-comfortable ergonomically angled earcups of the Solo2's. Being a music aficionado himself, Fujiwara combimes two of his greatest passions to bring his minimal aesthetic to the Beats family. His aim was to make them look "futuristic chrome" like something out of a sci-fi movie and he did just that, with the robot-like reflective shell and the complementary clean white.
