It’s officially 20 days until Christmas. That means that there’s only 19 more sleeps, 473 hours, 28377 minutes or 1,702,757 seconds to go. Not much shopping time at all.
Given that I’m a not-so-secret geek, it’ll come as no surprise that technology’s at the top of my list for the big guy this year… as it is most years. Well, that and Miu Miu bags of course (geeks can style too!).
This year’s top gadget has to be the Apple iPad Mini. Yes, yes, I’m still a fan girl. I’m OK with that. If your loved one is lucky enough to already have bagged themselves the iPad Mini, here are some accessories you might want to consider to keep it company:
Merino Wool Felt Charcoal Case with Leather Straps £19 on Etsy.
Keep your iPad Mini nice and warm in this lovely felt case… the pop of colour on the straps are guaranteed to make it stand out from the crowd.
Sock Monkey iPad Sleeve £15.50 on Etsy.
A sensible case a little too grown up for you? This sock monkey comes to order and is quite frankly CUTE!
Pro Quality Fisheye, Telephoto, Wide Angel and Macro lenses from £12 from Photojojo.
For all of those budding photographers out there, these lenses allow you to clip on to the camera
JBL Wireless Speaker for iPad Mini – £124 on JBL.
An absolute must for all of those Spotify fans out there like myself. Turn your iPad into an entertainment system with this speaker!
Charging Dock for iPad £1 minimum bid on Kickstarter.
Now that Apple is no longer making their beloved charging dock, this is a must-have purchase from a kickstarter funded project.
If your loved one is like myself and getting into cooking (just call me domestic goddess!), why not consider this kitchen friendly stand? It’s £21 from Chef Sleeve.
Of course, if none of that whets your appetite, there’s always the DODOcase that I wrote about a few weeks ago, which you can have personalised with your very own message. Now, that’s love!
Many of these products are shipped from the States, so be sure to order them nice and early. Oh and it’s always handy to get the iPad Mini first too, which you can pick up from Carphone Warehouse 😉
If you think I’ve missed a must-have accessory, leave a comment. Anything that helps me stay hip and down with the kids is always appreciated!
