GE Digital Camera DV1
Capture your child's first splash in the sea without worrying about getting the camera wet. GE's pocket digital high-definition video camera comes in a range of jaunty colours for summer and is crucially waterproof up to five metres (as well as shock- and dust/sand-proof), enabling you to make videos in a range of conditions, whether they be poolside or simply in the rain.
Steripen Traveller Mini
It's not just hardy trekkers who benefit from carrying a water steriliser. As well as being essential kit for hikes and camping, they can also be used to make tap-water safe for drinking in your hotel room, saving money on bottled water and protecting against stomach upsets. The Steripen Traveller Mini is a lightweight battery-powered steriliser that uses UV light to make half a litre of water safe to drink in less than a minute.
Liquis by Antler
In the race to cram hand luggage in the overhead compartment, bags can take as much knocking as when you check them into the hold. Happily, Antler's new Liquis range addresses both the practicality of being lightweight and hard-wearing. Starting at 2kg for the cabin size, the suitcases also come in medium and large, all in silver and blue shades.

If your skin is yearning to see the sun but your mind is telling it to be more modest, Sunseeker's new range of swimwear might make the transition from winter warmer to bikini beach body a little easier.
