Le Cool Guidebook
Bored of the Boqueria, sick of the Sagrada Familia, riled by the Ramblas? Then take a peek at the new edition of Le Cool's Weird and Wonderful Guide to Barcelona, which has been completely revised for 2011. Offering off-beat tips, from secret gardens to locals' tips for places to party after the clubs have closed, it covers all that is cool and quirky in the Catalan capital.
Exercising at 30,000ft is all very well, but when you've got just 32 inches of space in which to stretch your legs it can be tricky. The i-flx claims to offer a solution. The lightweight in-flight exerciser can be used for a range of techniques, whether it's discreetly underfoot to work your calf muscles, or – if you're unfazed by holding yoga poses in public – with your arms aloft to stretch your triceps.
The North Face e-tip glove
Touch screens and cold weather: not the best combination if you have to remove your gloves to change tracks on your MP3 player. Thankfully The North Face has the answer in the shape of Etip gloves, which have a sensitive pad on the forefinger that is recognised by touch screens, enabling you to keep your hands warm and your technology tactile.
This new series of 18 pocket guidebooks covers 60 walks in the Lake District. The fold-out OS maps are printed on waterproof plastic and distil vital information, from what to take with you to where to seek out the best view and the best pubs to end your journey in. It's like an app the old-fashioned way and without the worry of losing signal coverage.
