If they don&rsquo;t fall out entirely they always work themselves loose enough to break the noise-isolating seal and you lose all sense of bass. And when they are all the way in they block out so much outside noise that you probably won&rsquo;t be able to hear the bus that&rsquo;s about to run you over. </p> <p class="p1">These Bose sports headphones solve all of those problems. They&rsquo;ve got a flap that sort of clips into your ears, so they never fall out. But they don&rsquo;t burrow right into your brain, either - they instead funnel sound into your ear canal without blocking out all external noise.

Despite its small size, it&rsquo;ll blast out your tunes at surprisingly loud volumes without sounding distorted or tinny, and it feels as solid and as premium in the hands as its price tag would suggest. A rear kickstand props it up nicely for directed sound too, and it cleverly doubles up as a portable charger, letting you top up your trusty Android devices via an in-built USB port. A microphone transforms it into a conference call speaker at the press of a button, letting you switch from Iron Maiden to Ted from accounting at the press of a button.</p> <p><strong>Buy the&nbsp;<a href="http://www.play.com/Electronics/Electronics/4-/39706461/-/Product.html?_%24ja=tsid:13315%7Ccat:39706461%7Cprd:39706461&amp;$$ja=cgid:7111954497|tsid:48121|cid:130773177|lid:54119194977|nw:g|crid:22715959737|rnd:9642901491018281756|dvc:c|adp:1o1|mt:" target="_blank">Harman Kardon Esquire mini</a>&nbsp;here</strong></p> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-hcmvideofield-video field-field-brightcove-video"> <div class="field-label">Video ID/URL:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <div class="messages warning">This video is not currently supported.</div> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-filefield field-field-image"> <div class="field-label">Image #1:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <img class="imagefield imagefield-field_image" width="1200" height="900" title="Harman Kardon Esquire mini" alt="Best Christmas gifts ideas for Android fans" src="http://images.cdn.stuff.tv/sites/stuff.tv/files/best-christmas-gifts-ideas-android-fans-harman-kardon-esquire-mini.jpg?1416828654" /> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-number-integer field-field-make-full-width"> <div class="field-label">Make full width:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> Do not make full width </div> </div> </div> </fieldset> <fieldset class="content-multigroup-wrapper content-multigroup-1"><div class="field field-type-number-integer field-field-section-paginate"> <div class="field-label">Paginate on this section:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> Don't paginate </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-text field-field-title"> <div class="field-label">Title:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> Ogio Renegade RSS Backpack (£130) </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-text field-field-body"> <div class="field-label">Body:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <p>Portable speaker, laptop, Android tablet - your pockets can&#39;t fit them all.

The creators of Clocky know this, so they&#39;ve given it wheels and a love of rolling around.</p> <p>When the alarm goes off, Clocky gives you one chance to silence it. Take too long and it leaps into action, rolling away so that you&#39;re forced to drag yourself out of bed in an effort to capture it. Yes, it&#39;s really annoying - but it sure as hell works.</p> <p><strong>Buy&nbsp;<a href="http://www.amazon.co.uk/SUCK-UK-Clocky-Chrome-Runaway/dp/B001989WIS/ref=sr_1_fkmr0_1?ie=UTF8&amp;qid=1416220167&amp;sr=8-1-fkmr0&amp;keywords=pop+clocky?tag=stuff09-21">Clocky</a> here</strong></p> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-hcmvideofield-video field-field-brightcove-video"> <div class="field-label">Video ID/URL:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <div class="messages warning">This video is not currently supported.</div> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-filefield field-field-image"> <div class="field-label">Image #1:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <img class="imagefield imagefield-field_image" width="1200" height="900" title="Clocky" alt="Christmas gift ideas - watches and clocks" src="http://images.cdn.stuff.tv/sites/stuff.tv/files/best-christmas-gift-ideas-clocks-watches-clocky.jpg?1416589865" /> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-number-integer field-field-make-full-width"> <div class="field-label">Make full width:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> Do not make full width </div> </div> </div> </fieldset> <fieldset class="content-multigroup-wrapper content-multigroup-1"><div class="field field-type-number-integer field-field-section-paginate"> <div class="field-label">Paginate on this section:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> Don't paginate </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-text field-field-title"> <div class="field-label">Title:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> Vyconic Bike Wheel Clock (£65) </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-text field-field-body"> <div class="field-label">Body:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <p>For the stylish cyclist in your life (alright, it&#39;s for you really), an upcycled cycle wheel clock.

Compatible with most backpacking stoves (including Biolite&rsquo;s own CampStove), the KettleCharge uses a thermoelectric generator to produce 10W of power via a USB extender as your water boils.</p> <p>Give it a 15-minute charge, and that&rsquo;ll be enough power for twenty hours of music or, if you&rsquo;re in a zombie apocalypse, five hours of panicked phone calls to the last known safe house. Though compact and eminently packable, the 750ml capacity means there&rsquo;ll be enough water for three cups of Earl Grey. Or, if the zombies are closing in, one big, final Pot Noodle before you heroically fend off the encroaching walkers.</p> <p><strong>Buy the&nbsp;<a href="http://www.cotswoldoutdoor.com/biolite-kettlecharge-a8110063?id_colour=180" target="_blank">Biolite KettleCharge</a>&nbsp;here</strong></p> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-hcmvideofield-video field-field-brightcove-video"> <div class="field-label">Video ID/URL:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <div class="messages warning">This video is not currently supported.</div> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-filefield field-field-image"> <div class="field-label">Image #1:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <img class="imagefield imagefield-field_image" width="1200" height="900" title="Biolite KettleCharge" alt="Best Christmas gift ideas for campers and outdoor explorers" src="http://images.cdn.stuff.tv/sites/stuff.tv/files/biolite-kettlecharge_0.jpg?1416333582" /> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-number-integer field-field-make-full-width"> <div class="field-label">Make full width:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> Do not make full width </div> </div> </div> </fieldset> <fieldset class="content-multigroup-wrapper content-multigroup-1"><div class="field field-type-number-integer field-field-section-paginate"> <div class="field-label">Paginate on this section:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> Don't paginate </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-text field-field-title"> <div class="field-label">Title:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> Petzl e+lite Zip Emergency (£20) </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-text field-field-body"> <div class="field-label">Body:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <p>Admit it: you&rsquo;re very unlikely to get into the type of situation where you would need to use a light to try and get the attention of a would-be rescuer.
