Small is smart

It appears that smart tech that talks to us is all the rage this Christmas. Now's the time for the gadget enthusiasts to say hello to the Google Mini, the little sibling of the Google Home. Smaller, yes, but it packs a punch and it looks great. It’s voice-controlled, plays music, sets diary reminders, reads news updates, can control other smart devices in your home and loads more. There’s something quite satisfying about asking a speaker to play that Christmas compilation while you’re cooking.

Be the Xmas Hero

Although they’re designed with adventures and extreme sports in mind, the GoPro Hero 6 is about much more than that. Yes, it’s everything you’d expect; waterproof, incredibly durable and versatile. But they’ve thrown in some cool extra features to help the Hero 6 stand out from the crowd. There’s a 4K video recorder, a 12 megapixel camera and advanced settings for ultra-high quality snaps. You’ve got yourself an amazing all-rounder for life at home and away. A dream gift for adrenalin junkies, travellers and anyone who loves to capture life’s memorable moments.
