Here’s our roundup of the best gifts we think you can give this Christmas. It’s a little different to most gift lists and is based on what we think our customers, fans and followers will love.
Christmas 2017 Gift Guide for business
Olloclip Filmer’s Kit
This stunning film accessory kit could help you transform how you showcase your business, by turning your iPhone into a mobile videography, photography and live streaming device.
The kit, manufactured by phone video tech gurus Olloclip, contains a complete creative arsenal of lenses sized to fit today’s most popular camera, the iPhone.
A rig made up of five different lenses and a video grip once took a backpack or rolling case to carry, but today it all fits in an ultra-portable case taking up a fraction of the space.
With premium lenses offering five unique fields of view, users are now equipped to shoot farther, wider and closer than ever before possible with iPhone’s built-in front and rear cameras.
If that seems a bit much, Olloclip makes a whole range of cases, clips, lenses and more for mobile devices. And they’re really cool.
The kit is available for around £200, and we think it would be a great addition for our business customers.
Bittboy Mini FC
If you’re expecting to find a custom built supercomputer in our gaming section, think again. What’s popular this year is repackaged retro gaming.
The Bittboy Mini FC epitomises the new trend for old gaming. It looks a little bit like a Nintendo Game Boy, and it’s an eye-catching handheld console that allows you to play your favorite retro games using physical buttons.
It comes loaded with classics like classics like Super Mario Bros 3, Pac Man, Contra, Donkey Kong, Ninja Gaiden 2, Double Dragon, and Bomber Man.
The other good news is the Bittboy Mini FC is available for under £40. Here’s a code for free worldwide shipping.
Christmas 2017 Gift Guide for the kids
The best robot ever?
If you really want to impress your kids the Anki Cozmo is one of the smartest robots ever made.
It’s tiny, but offers an impressive number of intelligent features including the ability to recognise faces, play games and learn. Cozmo the robot comes with three LED cubes that he can interact with as you play.
Cozmo really feels like he has a personality, kids are going to love him, and you might have a bit of peace and quiet if he keeps them entertained.
The RRP is £199 but if you shop around you can find it for a little cheaper. https://www.anki.com/en-gb/cozmo
Cheap and cheerful – great for the office
Looking for a cheap novelty gift that could actually be useful? We love this map of the world which allows you to scratch off the areas you’ve visited.
Keep an eye out for Henry the Hoover as well. He seems to be popping up in a variety of novelty gifts that make cute little stocking fillers or secret santa surprises.

Something a bit different
If you’re looking for something a little different you should try a subscription box – we bet it’s a lot easier to find one for the person you’re buying for than you think.
A subscription box is the gift that keeps on giving. You can choose to gift three, six or twelve months of most subscription boxes, in which you or the lucky recipient will receive a themed item each month.
Gaming ones, geeky ones, JK Rowling ones are all available from Lootcrate. Imagine how chuffed your Star Trek loving friend will be to get a themed gift every month rather than just one at Christmas.
