How about this for a great idea?
MoneySupermarket.com have rallied lots of UK bloggers to buy each other a Secret Santa gift! They have even done the painful bit, and given us £25 each to spend! www.moneysupermarket.com/christmas/secret-santa-challenge/
I received my “partner’s” details this evening. It’s a great blog at http://www.gizmophobe.co.uk, run by Stephen Reynolds. Its full of news and reviews about gadgets, which is right up my street, but this puts in a right pickle.
What do I choose for the blogger that has everything?
Ok – I know!
What would I like?
Always a safe bet with audio – a radio, an mp3 player?
After extensive research I narrow it down to a wireless speaker. This would be a good choice for someone who loves their music on the go. The price difference can be horrific though, as the most expensive speakers tend to be at the wrong end of £100! The Jawbone Jambox at £99, the Logitech Mini wireless Boombox at a more reasonable £59.
After a quick visit to my John Lewis store I found the one!
A Panasonic Sc-Mc07e-Wa Compact Wireless Bluetooth Speaker System (that’s a sexy name – couldn’t they use “Fang” or “Shadow”?).
Powered by just 1 AA battery, this tiny little unit will broadcast your tunes from your bluetooth phone or MP3 player, or plug a blueTOOTHLESS unit via the lead included. Also if you run out of AA batteries (and have exhausted the secret supply from the TV remote), simply plug in the included Mains Adaptor!
But the best thing??
It’s got a UNION JACK on it!!
That’s right – celebrate the best year in Britain for years! The Olympics, the Diamond Jubilee, the Cricket,
the football, the Tour de France!
…and the price??
a princely £24.99 (plus 89p post) from an Amazon Marketplace seller – a Secret Santa Bargain!
