Ok, we know it’s expensive. And no, it doesn’t have a headphone jack. But what we can’t deny is that it is pure class. With Apple’s biggest rival offering the possibility of a surprise explosion with your new phone, this is the only option if you want to treat your loved one to a new top-of-the-range device. Or yourself.

4) Tile Mate – from €27

For all those forgetful fools like myself. The Tile Mate is getting smaller and smaller and is now the width of only two credit cards, and it helps you to relocate misplaced items – everything from keys to phones to purses.

5) GoPro HERO5 Session – €329.99

Let’s face it, there really isn’t any point in going travelling these days unless you have a GoPro, and this is the latest and best version out there.

Don’t buy this for your boyfriend if you want to see much of him in the New Year, as this console combined with FIFA 17 and the new Call of Duty game will ensure he’s glued to the screen. He’ll love you for it if you do though.

7) Samsung Gear VR Headset – from €49.99

Virtual reality is the future of gaming, and you can hook this bad boy up to your Samsung smartphone to jump into the game. 

8) Amazon Fire Stick – €37

9) iRobot Roomba 980 Vacuum Cleaning Robot – €899.99

I hear ya, nine hundred quid for a hoover? Hear me out. This thing takes the misery out of vacuuming. All you have to do is flick a button on your phone and it cleans the floor for you. Perhaps if you’re feeling a bit flush this could be the way to go. But maybe you like the misery?
