Nikon A900 COOLPIX digital camera

Nikon's 20.3-megapixel COOLPIX A900 delivers exceptional quality optics in a pocket-sized body. The 35x optical zoom lens captures fine details with a 70x Dynamic Fine Zoom. You can also capture memorable moments in crisp 4K UHD movies, as well as with the timelapse movie feature.

Sonos One – Voice Controlled Smart Speaker

For those that want well-balanced sound, whether it be to play your music or add surround sound for your TV (using two Sonos speakers), the Sonos One is hard to beat — especially with integrated Amazon Alexa. The smart speaker can connect wirelessly to other Sonos home sound system speakers to play music in any or every room. With AirPlay, you can also stream directly from Apple devices or ask Siri to play your favourites from Apple Music.

The sound is well-rounded, with a crisp treble and plenty of bass on offer, and you can alter the EQ via the Sonos app as well. The speaker also works with Spotify, which you can set as your default music player to work with voice commands. Currently, you can save £20 via Amazon on the Sonos One.

KitchenAid Mini Stand Mixer

The Mini Stand Mixer from KitchenAide is perfect for those who want a stand mixer but have a small kitchen or workspace. The Stand Mixer is best known (by fans of kitchen appliances) for its 'planetary action', whereby the beater rotates in one direction while whisking and turning in the other. This pushes ingredients to the centre of the bowl, creating lovely batters, doughs and blends.

The Hot Sauce (red), Guava Glaze (baby pink) and Twilight Blue (blue, obviously) variants of the KitchenAid Mini Stand Mixer are heavily discounted on Amazon right now, with £179 off — bringing the current price to £270. It includes the brushed stainless steel bowl (which can process up to 680g of flour and eight egg whites), wire whip, flat beater and dough hook — as well as a five-year warranty.


Fitbit Charge 2

The Charge 2 can track your step count throughout the day, let you set fitness goals for yourself and monitor your sleep patterns to improve your health. If you want to buy a gift for someone who owned or owns the original Fitbit Charge and wants to upgrade, the Charge 2 offers multi-sport tracking for activities like running, weight training, cycling and interval workouts — and you'll save £60 via Amazon.

It doesn't feature a GPS, but it can pair with your phone and track the distance travelled via Google Maps or the like. It also tracks heart rate and sends you alerts when you receive calls, texts or calendar reminders (but, again, this is obviously when it's paired to your mobile). For a running watch, something like the Garmin Forerunner 235 might suit better, but for tracking your daily step count and keeping an eye on various fitness activities — the Fitbit Charge 2 is a great gift.


Bang & Olufsen Beoplay E6 In-ear Wireless Earphones

The B&O Beoplay E6 headphones are ideal for anyone looking for some Band and Olfunsen audio magic on a smaller budget than most of their headphones would cost you. They're currently £199, down from £269 on Amazon - so if you're interested, it's a good idea to get them while they're in stock. An ergonomic fit, sweat-proof silicone and five-hour battery life make them ideal for those with an active lifestyle, and little details — like the magnetic casings so you can clip the earphones together around your neck — are a nice touch.

The E6 offers excellent sound quality, regardless of whether you want to listen to music or podcasts, and you can customise the sound further by matching your sound profile to your activity via the Beoplay App. A three-button control panel on the braided cord and microphone make for easy control, while the E6 comes with a snap-on charger for in-use charging.



LEGO The Ultimate Batmobile

This LEGO model divides into four separate vehicles: the Batmobile, Batwing, Bat-Tank and Batcycle. The set features foldout boosters and four stud shooters, while the Batwing has foldout wings and two spring-loaded shooters. It also features the rotating Bat-Signal with a LEGO light brick. Currently, you can save £56 (40%) when you buy via Amazon.

The eight minifigures include Batman, Robin, Batgirl, Polka-Dot Man, Alfred Pennyworth (in Batsuit), Wicked Witch of the West and two Flying Monkeys. Weapons include Batman and Batgirl’s Batarangs, Polka-Dot Man’s two polka dots and Alfred Pennyworth’s two swords — while accessories include Batman, Robin, Batgirl, Alfred Pennyworth and Wicked Witch of the West's capes, Batman and Batgirl's utility belts, Polka-Dot Man’s helmet, Alfred Pennyworth’s hat, and Wicked Witch of the West’s hat and broomstick.
