6. Nike FuelBand SE

Pre-empt your new year's resolution to get fit by getting one of Nike's newest training devices right now. As well as counting your steps, it also provides ongoing motivation and it can connect to your smartphone to sync it to the web and see how well/badly you're doing compared to your friends.

7. Nude Audio Move S

The company is probably aiming to bait dodgy Google search results with that name, but the Move S (£29.99) is a cool little device nonetheless. Like pretty much everything it connects via Bluetooth, and it packs a 40mm speaker so your music sounds far better than it would coming from your smartphone or tablet. Its rugged design means it'll survive a chaotic Christmas and still blast out Good King Wenceslas.

8. Olloclip 4-in-1 Lens

The closest you'll get to having interchangeable lenses on a smartphone (without it becoming completely impractical), Olloclip's all-in-one solution (£79.99) perches on the corner of your iPhone and lets you switch between fisheye, wide-angle and 10- and 15-times macro lenses. Great for getting close-ups of that weird bug you just found.

9. Western Digital My Passport Ultra

While every single internet company in the world is banging on about cloud storage, it's still impractical for most – especially if you're on a slow rural internet connection. Western Digital's My Passport Ultra (from £49) is a great solution, allowing you to store up to 2TB of data on a rugged device which will fit in the palm of your hand.

10. Bag Light

Another lamp, of course. According to the blurb, it's "safer and longer-lasting than plonking tealights in a paper bag,” which apparently is a thing people do. Or it's a joke we don't get. Anyway, we think it looks pretty nifty, and it's made from recyclable materials, although its £35 price tag means we'd certainly think twice about putting it in our green bin.
