JBL's Flip 2 Bluetooth speaker packs an impressive punch of sound, comes in a range of colours and pairs to phones using NFC.
Whether it's for your kids to enjoy awful music in their bedrooms or for your significant other to rock out to something more tasteful while cooking in the kitchen, the Flip 2 is well worth its £50 price.
Apple's iPad Air is arguably the best tablet money can buy. Typing out long emails on a touchscreen can still be a bit of a chore though.
For those in your family trying to use their iPad as a laptop replacement, Logitech's Ultrathin Keyboard cover will be a critical addition. It not only provides physical keys to make typing more comfortable, it also acts as a protective case.
"Batteries not included" is the phrase that haunts those of us who had our hopes of driving our new toy car down the street on Christmas evening dashed when Santa didn't also bring a pack of Duracells.
Batteries certainly aren't an issue for the Logitech Wireless Solar Keyboard as it uses good old sunlight for a power source. Better yet, it costs only £30 and will work with your your iPhone, iPad and Mac.
Live the 80s dream with the Binatone Brick. This oversized beast of a phone accepts a SIM card to make calls or texts. It doesn't have 3G, 4G, Twitter access or a camera, but it does have a bulky style to make any retro fanatic jealous.
If you don't want to use it as your main phone, you can pair it to your normal smartphone over Bluetooth, letting you simply take calls through the Brick.
The Brick is available to buy now on Amazon for only £27. Bad haircuts and Depeche Mode CDs sold separately.
