Technology & Music Lovers Gift Guide - Christmas 2014

We are gadget geeks in our house - there's no two ways about it, so you can guarantee there will be at least one or two gadget presents under our tree this year. If you have a technology fan in your family here are a few gift ideas:



For forgetful family members how about the Kensington Proximo (£30).  Available for iPhone and Samsung Galaxy S. Proximo safeguards your items to ensure they're always with you. Simply download the app and attach the fob or tag to the item you would be lost without.
  • The Proximo app’s Proximity Meter acts as a 24/7 guardian, letting you know how far away your stuff is and alerting you if you leave it behind.
  • The Proximo Fob triggers an alarm on your phone, even if it’s on vibrate, so you can find it quickly and get on with your day.
  • The Proximo Tag can be put on any items like backpacks or handbags so you can always find them easily with the Proximo app on your phone.
