Here are selected gifts for the men in your life (partners, dads, granddads, boyfriends) including the latest useful GADGETS .
The AA Home Toolset incorporates 147 pieces of the most used tools in the most commonly used shapes and sizes. This is the ideal gift for every man as it can be used in and around the home and includes 46 of the most commonly used tools. We quite liked the handy storage bag as it isn’t too big and the tools fit in nicely without taking too much space. RRP £29.99 – Available from www.theaa.com/shop
Here is another great product for men from the AA Shop. This Cree LED torch uses Cree technology making them much brighter than standard LED torches, with long-range beam distances and weatherproof aluminium casing. CREE is a market-leading innovator of lighting products and LED components.
This is the best torch we have ever come across. Its high powered beam provides 110 Lumens brightness and a massive 280m beam distance. This torch is ergonomically designed using strong and stylish black aluminium casing and affords the user an incredible 420 minutes of burn time. The sturdy protective casing means that the torch is entirely weatherproof. Ideal for both home use or to keep in the car. If you want to buy a special Christmas present for someone we suggest combining this torch with the home set. RRP £29.99 – Available from www.theaa.com/shop
The SafeGrip is a fantastic iPad cover, ideally suited to younger users in education and at home. They can carry it around as if it was in a bag and then use the handle to keep the iPad straight up. The SafeGrip features rugged handle for little hands, stylus holders to avoid loss and a personalization slot, to prevent classroom skirmishes over which iPad belongs to which student. It suits me as I don’t want to risk losing the iPad. This is the ideal case to protect your iPad in the shared-use environment.

There are so many videos posted daily on millions of personal YouTube channels. Even we at London Mums have our own londonmums You Tube channel. Now there’s a new quirky way to capture spontaneous extreme special moments (on bikes, scooters etc) with Zinc Red-I Micro Camcorder that is easily applied to scooters or helmets.
This is a small, light and uncomplicated micro camcorder. It is a video recording device that has been stripped down to the bare essentials. There is no viewfinder, no view screen, no zoom control, no focus control, nor any other traditional camcorder staples. However it is practical and you can record fantastic footage by simply strapping it to your bikes, scooters, anything really. Obviously the type of footage recorded is very unique and dynamic. RRP £29.99 plus you need to buy a suitable memory card for £7 circa. It is affordable and fun is guaranteed. We even secretly filmed jokes made to friends to capture their faces 🙂 www.zincsports.com
