iPod touch

From £199

When it comes to portable music there’s nothing cooler than the iPod,and now the touch-sensitive interface of Apple’s iPhone has been introduced into the latest version. It also has a 3.5-inch screen that makes it great for playing videos. Because it uses flash memory instead of a hard drive the capacity is much lower than an iPod classic, but enough for 2,000 or 4,000 songs, depending on whether you go for 8GB or 16GB.

Sun Jar solar-powered lamp

£18.95
