Stocking Filler Gadget of the Week

15 Nov

To spread the cost of Christmas, I would recommend buying gifts as early in the year as possible (I set a personal record this year when I bought my first gift in January!) Each week I will be reviewing the best gifts for partners, children, pets and the coolest new gadgets as well as which food and decorations to stock up on.

First up in my weekly gadget reviews is the olloclip 3-in-one. It is a quick-connect lens solution for the iPhone that includes fisheye, wide-angle and macro lenses in one small, convenient package that easily fits in your pocket. After trying this out I was surprised to see that you can flip it over to use either lens, and the results are really good quality photographs, that look like they came from an expensive camera not just a phone. This is the perfect item for those who use their iPhone for all of their photography needs, and don’t want to be limited in function. Arguably one could just buy a camera instead but I do like how small and convenient the clip is – and as men are gadget-crazy it could be just the gift inspiration that you need! Olloclip for iPhone 4/4S and 5 currently retails for £59.95. More info is available on the olloclip official website www.olloclip.com

Verdict: 9/10 for the ‘cool factor’ and 5/10 for value.

While on the topic of accessories for the iPhone, I must also mention the cutest phone case for this season, the Case-Mate Snowman case for iPhone 4/4s. RRP is at £19.99 available from cleverkit.com though he bargain hunter in me has managed to find this for as little as £6 on ebay! This case is marketed at teenagers, but I actually love this for myself. One slight negative however is that it doesn’t fit onto my phone as snugly as my previous case.

Verdict: A very cool 7/10 (pardon the pun, it’s something about the festive season mst be all those christmas cracker jokes rubbing off!)
