Christmas would not be the same without Gadgets, there are some seriously awesome gadgets for all ages on the market at the moment. Here are a couple of my favourite gadgets currently on the market that would make awesome Christmas gifts this year!
If you struggle for TV reception due to your aerial pointing in the wrong direction (just like mine!), then the One For All Amplified Indoor Aerial may just be the answer to your prayers! The SV 9495, priced at £64.95 from One For All is very sleek and can be wall mounted, stood up with the included stand or laid flat. Whichever way you choose, there is no denying it does not actually resemble indoor aerials of old and has a modern look to it. It is 4k compatible and receives Digital signals – check on the site to locate your nearest transmitter and find which is the best aerial for your needs. The LED lights signify when the signal strength and actually add to the funkiness and stylish look of the aerial. Be prepared to keep moving the aerial to find a strong signal but with a long attached wire you will not need to worry about space around your TV.
Dashcams add reassurance when driving and even more so during the Winter months when the roads can be treacherous. The Mio MiVue 618 punches a lot of weight in such a tiny dashcam, with extreme HD recording, lifetime safety camera updates to inform you of impending cameras, GPS tracking and wide angle viewing. You will need to purchase a micro SD card for memory space and also ensure you have a mini USB to hand also in order to download footage to your computer. With a long lead, you will easily be able to place it in a car and tidy the lead away so as not to distract. After hearing of a friend’s experience of a traffic accident that would have had a different outcome without a dashcam, I cannot recommend them highly enough! You can check out the full range of dashcams on the Mio site – the MiVue 618 retails at £99.99.

We are huge fans of House of Marley products in our house, after featuring their headphones in last year’s Christmas Gift Guide. The build quality of the range is superb and I love the company ethos and their commitment to earth-friendliness and global charitable causes. The Chant Mini portable bluetooth audio speaker in denim is no exception! With exceptional sound quality, the Chant is made with exclusive REWIND™ fabric covering, blended bio-plastic, and recyclable aluminum with stunning bamboo detailing, a rechargeable lithium-ion battery, aluminium housings, and auto reconnect Bluetooth capabilities. Even the packaging is awesome and fully recyclable! Priced at £39.99, you can pick up this awesome bluetooth speaker directly from House of Marley… but be prepared to add other audio accessories to your basket too!
