1. Night Cable

What? You know the frustration of fumbling around trying to find your phone cable which has fallen down the side of the bed or off the edge of the table? We’ve all been there. Night Cable is a regular iPhone cable, only it has a weighted knot on it, which can be moved around, so that you can weight down your charger wherever you want it to stay. It’s a pretty neat idea, and looks kind of cute and nautical as well.


How much? €39.99

2. Headphone-holding iPhone case

3.  A Portable DJ Kit


What? Ok, it’s not the cheapest, but this would make a very cool gift. This little gadget turns your iPhone into a portable mixer, meaning that house parties just got a whole lot cooler. It’s small so can very easily be carried around. Perfect for a budding DJ!

What? Something else that isn’t particularly cheap but is ridiculously awesome is goTenna. If you’ve ever been hiking or exploring, you’ll know what it’s like to feel the wave of panic that comes with not being able to contact anyone, even in an emergency. GoTenna is “a cognitive digital radio combined with an app that generates its own signal and automatically coordinates with other units within range”, meaning that you can stay in touch with your excursion partners even if one of you gets lots. Very clever and extremely useful!


How much? $199 for two
