So here are a few ideas on how to spend your cash like
a wise man (or woman) without seeming like an utter

> Proline FD6B Fondue Maker

Like moustaches, Lava Lamps and the Ford Capri, fondue sets
are something we thought were left behind in the 1970s. But it turns out they’re back so if you know someone who likes
sticking things into melted cheese or even dunking stuff in melted chocolate, this could see their
gift sorted.

> Panasonic DMP-BD75EB-K Blu-ray Player

When Blu-ray first rocked up in our lives, movie discs cost a fortune and the player itself wasn’t affordable for most.

This foldable hairdryer and mini straightener brings glamour on the go. Crucially this

stress out of you.

Quality HD Ready TVs don’t have to cost the earth. This decent 16″ portable is perfect for a bedroom, den or kitchen. You can’t really argue with tuning yourself into that, can you?


> Apple iPod Shuffle 2GB Silver – 4th Generation

You’d never really expect to see the word “Apple” near the word budget, even actual apples are expensive these days. But this little Shuffle is very well-priced and such a good gift – and is especially ideal for listening to
music while working out.
