Christmas Gift Guide: 12 creative gadget gifts

Umbra Conceal Bookshelf (£10.50)

Arty books deserve an arty bookshelf, and this one is just perfect, making it appear as if your tomes are floating on air (or glued to the wall at the edges). Of course they're not. It's all done with mirrors, isn't it?

Build your own life-size human skeleton (£20)

We've pretty much said it all there in the headline. It starts out as a book with pages that you pop out into little cardboard shapes. Fold them, bend them, put them on the side until figure out if they're a leg bit or an arm bit, and before you know it you'll have full-sized skeleton to hide in your closet.

More after the break...

Adjustable Alphabet Cake Pan (£22)

If you've got something important to say, say it with cake. But probably in no more than three letters because these cakes come out pretty big. LOL. Get a few if you want to bake your letters simultaneously.

PicPaperie (from US$14)

Personalised gift wrap can be yours via this California-based start-up. It's currently in the funding stage via Indigogo but early contributors can place orders that should arrive in time for the big day. Upload your pics, choose your layout and the job is done. Or you could print some yourself at home, which might be a bit quicker and cheaper.
