This thumb-sized media streaming device plugs into a HDMI socket at the back of a television to give it WiFi capability. It can then be used remotely to control the screen using a phone or a laptop. You can stream iPlayer, Netflix and other streaming services as well as bring up photos on your TV.
Misfit Shine - a stylish fitness trackers
With wearable technology set to be the biggest trend of 2015, get ahead of the curve. This tracker is super stylish and perfect for gym goers - or maybe just someone who’s planning on overdoing it on the portions this Christmas. San particularly likes that it's a stylish item which isn't clunky.
Pretend this one is for the children. Lego Minecraft allows anyone to build new worlds full flying ghosts and zombie pigmen.
The Parrot Drone
At £300, this is a little more than a stocking filler. It's a drone with a camera attached and can be hooked up to your mobile phone - though it does need a clear day to work properly. For tech lovers, this is the gift of the year.
Binatone Brick phone
San can't tell if this is brilliant or stupid... but hey, it's flash back to the 00s, so why not? Despite its out-of-date look and chunky exterior, it is actually a reasonably modern gadget. Perfect for the hipster in your life?
