Help friends and family bring their digital photos to life and free them from their PCs with a photo frame.

9. USB Cup Warmer - £9.99

We couldn't have a rundown of PC gadgets without one piece of USB related nonsense, and this cup warmer gets our seal of approval. Mugs of tea going cold is a big problem in the TechRadar office, so our Secret Santa is already sorted.

11. Asus EeePC SeaShell 1005HE - £229

The netbook is the perfect was to coax any PC lover away from their bedroom or study and into the outside world this Christmas, and the Asus EeePC Seashell 1005HE is the perfect netbook to do it with. It's super thin, super light, boasts 8 hour battery life, has got the usual array of 160Gb hard drive and Intel Atom 1.6Ghz processor, and it's £230. What's more, it's so portable that they can leave that darkened room and take their PC on the move instead.

12. Slanket - £24.95

We admit it, the Slanket isn't a gadget, but it's essential gear for laptop users who want to stay cosy while working on the sofa. Yes, it looks stupid, and it's essentially a blanket with arm holes, which make it easy to comfortably use a laptop without your arms getting cold. Anyone who likes to get lazy with their laptop will know the problem, and appreciate a Slanket in their stocking this Christmas.
