Every now and then a gadget comes along that everyone needs or buys even though they don't really need it. Think fidget spinners...

PopSockets make holding phones easier than ever and can be collapsed to pop the phone in your pocket. Super practical Christmas gifts that won't break the bank. They also fit nearly every single phone on the market, making them the perfect universal stocking filler.

There's no shortage when it comes to audio gift ideas this Christmas. But there's no arguing how well Apple products work together.

This year's Apple Watch transcends what we all thought watches could do. With a medically approved ECG built in, this was a wearable which literally could save lives.

If you're looking to save a few bob, you can also still purchase some of the older models directly if you follow Neal's advice.
