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

The Sun Jar looks like a squat, old-fashioned frosted-glass kitchen storage jar, but underneath there’s a solar panel and LED-light array. Leave it on the window sill in natural or strong artificial light and the panel collects light during the day. When darkness falls, the LED automatically kicks in with a warm, yellow radiance. It's waterproof, so it can be used outside too.
