Stocking Fillers

Want a nice brush for your manly beard? Well, this is not the product for you. However, the Brush It is a fantastic little bit of kit to gently run over your prized vinyl records, before dropping the needle and sitting back in your smoking jacket with a glass of bourbon.

That’s right, it may sound a bit like a popular gaming console from the 2000s, but don’t be fooled; there’s no need to accidentally throw the remote at your TV whilst trying sink a hole in one (any Tiger Woods PGA Tour fans reading)? This little WiiM audio streamer puck is the perfect addition to any hi-fi system, big or small. With easy aux connectivity and a simple plug-and-play app, you could be streaming your favourite Christmas songs in no time (personally, I’ll be starting with The Darkness – Christmas Time).

It’s not quite the motor bike that your Dad wanted for Christmas but… at least it says Yamaha on it! Why not stream the sounds of an engine directly to it via Bluetooth? That’ll fool him. Anyway, when you’re done playing pranks on Dad, you can go back to Noddy Holder and take your new bargain Bluetooth speaker with you – Happy Christmas, Dad!

Fed up of Gran telling you stories about how she single-handedly wrestled a Turkey back in the day (or is that just my Gran)? Stick these powerful-yet-tiny wireless headphones in to your ear, put Taylor Swift on (Christmas Tree Farm, and all the other Christmas covers she’s done – plenty of bangers to choose from) and nod off with a smile of smugness, knowing you can’t hear a word of that Turkey story that you’ve heard every Christmas since you were a kid… and also knowing that there are only 250 days left until you go to see Taylor Swift live at Wembley #TheErasTour.

Your big sister got the in-ear headphones and you’ve got the over-ears, great for blocking out all the Christmas hubbub! Easily connect these Bluetooth headphones to your phone, select “Fairytale of New York” on your preferred streaming app and enjoy the peace. Oh– who’s that calling? It’s Hans Gruber, he wants to let you know that he’s at the top of the Nakatomi Plaza; better answer quickly using that crystal-clear built-in microphone and let him know that you’re talking to him through your amazing new headphones that Santa brought you. “Hans? Hello?” Guess he must have pocket dialled… wait, “yippee kai” what?!
