Looking for a show-stopping, de-luxe gadget gift instead? We've got you covered here.
1. Google Cardboard (Amazon price: £5.99)
Virtual Reality headsets are all the rage at the moment. But, if you don’t have the budget for a top of the range one, the Google Cardboard is an excellent alternative.
As both the name and the price would suggest, this headpiece is actually made out of cardboard. Still, don’t be fooled by its slightly flimsy appearance.
Simply download a VR app from Google’s Play Store or Apple’s App Store, slot your smartphone into the Cardboard and immerse yourself in a virtual world.
You could be forgiven for thinking this is yet another gimmicky gift that will be gathering dust from Boxing Day onwards. But this desktop toy actually comes preloaded with 240 classic arcade games to keep any retro gamer amused way past the festive season.
It looks exactly like a retro arcade machine and is controlled by two tiny buttons and a miniature joystick. It’s also small enough to get away with having on your desk, so it makes a great Secret Santa gift for a colleague.
A modern twist on a classic Christmas gift, these gloves are so much more useful than the usual mittens from Grandma.
They have silver-coated micro-fibre tips so you can use your touchscreen phone while wearing them. So you can keep on scrolling while you’re waiting for the train on those cold January mornings without getting frozen fingers.
8. Wireless Bluetooth headphone hat (Amazon price: £12.99)
This knitted beanie is aimed at keeping you warm when you’re out and about without having to compromise on using your smartphone.
It'll play music from your device via Bluetooth so you won’t get tangled up in wires when you're trying to listen to your music in the wind and rain.
The discreet buttons on the side look like part of the design, but they’re actually controls for the speakers, so you can adjust the volume, change songs and even answer calls all by pressing your hat.
Even in adulthood it’s hard to shake the loyalties you felt towards consoles you owned as a nipper.
If your ongoing steadfastness to ‘90s gaming kingpins Sega means there’s no way on God’s green earth that you’re going near the much hyped Nintendo NES Mini, this Game Gear and Master System emulator is just the ticket.
This retro wonder comes with 30 games built-in, including the key Sonic the Hedgehog and Alex Kidd titles, cartoony shooters Fantasy Zone and Fantasy Zone II and the UR hack-and-slasher Golden Axe.
