Whether you're buying for a child's stocking, a teenager's pillow sack or an adult's hand-wrapped gift box, we've got 12 fun tech presents that are bound to appeal.

As they're all under £25 each, you could even buy a couple of early Christmas presents for yourself, too.

With this time of year proving expensive for everyone, it's worth hunting around online for the best deals, checking eBay and Amazon or even signing up for Quidco, which gives you money back on whatever purchases you make through the site.

Just don't forget to buy any extras the gifts may require, such as batteries, film or thread, as you'd be hard-pressed to find a shop that's open on Christmas day.

Enjoy – whether you're watching someone unwrapping one of the following products or if it's a sneaky present to you, from you.

5. Griffin AirCurve - £19.99

You don't need to plug this speaker in or buy batteries for it, with the coiled centerpiece acting as an amplifier for whichever iPhone model is docked. The music is much louder and clearer than anyone would ever expect, and it's very Apple-esque in design too.

6. V-Gauge wine preserver - £21.99

Save the rest of a bottle of wine with a high-tech wine stopper that has its own inbuilt pressure gauge. Pump out any oxygen in the bottle to keep it from going bad, and the wine should last much longer than usual. Unless you don't finish it all in one night, of course.
