£49.95

Blue Microphones’ Tiki is a USB microphone that uses intelligent technology to minimise background noise and determine what sounds to focus on and when to mute. It’s useful for Skype and FaceTime calls, plus its snail-like design and multi-coloured LED adds a touch of fun to the tiny device.

Canon Pixma MG3250

£69

The speed and running costs of the MG3250 mean it’s not the best choice for frequent, everyday use. However, its duplex option and helpful software will appeal to anyone who occasionally needs to produce longer, high-quality documents.

iPod nano

£129

The thinnest iPod nano yet packs a lot of functionality into the palm of your hand. It has a built-in pedometer for fitness fans, and a multi-touch 2.5in display. We can see the new colours appealing to the younger market.
