Angry Birds: Knock On Wood
Sling three real life (well, toy) Angry Birds against building blocks and pigs with this board game version of everyone's (once) favourite app. Works best if you have kids that you can pretend to buy it for.
Holga Retro Lens iPhone Case
Yes we have heard of all those excellent – sometimes free – photo apps on the App Store. But just look at this rotating retro lens case from Holga – it's better looking than other ugly lens offerings for the iPhone and has a bunch of fun filters to spice up your smartphone snaps.
Star Wars Moleskine notebook
We're not sure what happens to the balance of the universe when two ambassadors of cool meet – but a surefire way to find out is to pick up these limited edition Star Wars Moleskine notebooks. Used by Hemingway, Picasso and Vader.
Gear4 Pocket Loops keyboard
Get your DJ kicks on the cheap with this Pocket Loops keyboard and free iOS app. Tinkle away at some melodies on the keys then record them using the four track sequencer – you'll have a mix quicker than the time it takes to read a pro music-making gadget manual.
Space Invaders reflectors
Road safety is important – then again, so are retro video games. Combine the two with these Space Invaders reflectors – but don't blame us if they cause more accidents as fellow cyclists stare at you in envy.
Frozen fingers or an unusable touchscreen? That's the conundrum posed by gloves and Arctic temperatures.

For those who like the idea of the Sony Ericsson Xperia Play, but don't want an actual gamepad built into their sleek smartphone, there's this button-laden controller. It's not the prettiest peripheral, but will connect to any Android device via Bluetooth for full control and has loads of potential as a handheld console killer. It also works on iOS devices, controlling any games that are compatible with the iCade gaming dock.
Camera Lens Cup
Photographers need plenty of caffeine flavoured fuel to keep them going and this quirky mug disguised as a camera lens is about $2,000 cheaper than pouring boiling water into a real lens. The perfect gift for the photo fanatic in your life.
It's hard to get excited about an MP3 player, but when the Shuffle got its buttons back there was cause for celebration. It's all about the buttons – and those physical controls made a triumphant return with large, clickable volume and track skip buttons, complete with a dedicated VoiceOver button to compensate for the lack of a screen. It's stylish, simple and perfectly suited to the gym.
Proporta Turbocharger 7000
Running out of juice when you're on the move is an undeniable pain in the backside we could all do without. A portable charger is a godsend when your gadget is close to empty – especially one that will charge your device at least at least four times over. With a variety of connectors, you'll be hard pushed to find a non-compatible device – unless your gadget happens to have one of those annoying proprietary ports.
How many times has your phone fallen out of your pocket, only to crash land on the floor – or worse, down the crapper?

Just clip or hook it on to your clothing or man bag and never worry about your butter fingers again.
