Warm to these cheap headphones

Skinnydip offers a fun range of new gadget cases and is offering 30 per cent discount off all orders over £30 for 30 days until 6 January. Best sellers right now, not surprisingly, given the cold, are earmuffs and animal beanie hat headphones such as the £15 leopard-print earmuff headphones. The range of phone, tablet and Kindle cases, featured on Dragons' Den a couple of months ago, are at lets-skinnydip.com. Use the code BIG30 for the discount.
