I am, I have to admit, a massive loser. Not in that way. What I mean is, I lose my personal possessions with the same facility other people have for breathing or sleeping. I've said goodbye – or rather, not said goodbye – to two pairs of headphones and, er, four iPhones this year. Shudder then, at the new BookBook iPhone holder (£49.99), which keeps your phone snug, while also acting as your wallet, with room for notes, credit cards and train tickets.

Some will doubtlessly find it charming, but I fear the designer has given little thought to what happens when you leave your phone on the 67 bus to Wood Green and have to chase it down, Hawaii Five-0-style, in a taxi, as happened to me last Thursday. How ever would I have paid?
