Christmas Gift Guide 2016: 16 gadget stocking fillers for less than £20

Looking for wallet-friendly tech to slip into Santa's stocking? We've got you covered

The tree is up. The mince pies are made. Nan's asleep on the sofa. But what gadgets will find their way into your stocking?

Second-guess Santa with our nifty list of the top tech for less than £20 - perfect for some connected festive fun, without breaking the bank.

SLUGHAUS BULLET (£10.99)

Yes, your phone has a torch, but it’s barely bright enough to light up the inside of a Coke can - let alone guide you home after a mince pie binge down the local.

Put this water-resistant LED light on your keyring and you’ll have 15 lumens of torch-power on tap at all times. Perfect for spotting wayward baubles.

UPROSA PHONE CASE (£19.90)

Who designed these lovely phone cases? Science, that’s who.

Uprosa’s designs are taken from microscope images and are available for most smartphones. This one of crystallised citric acid is called Citrus Ocean. Pretty, huh?

XIAOMI MI POWER BANK (£15.90)

We can’t quite decide which is the more astonishing bargain: a full computer kit for less than £30 (the Raspberry Pi Zero), or a 10,000mAh power bank for the price of a pub lunch, giving two full phone recharges wherever you are. Buy them both, and you'll still have change from a fifty.

SUGRU REBEL TECH KIT (£10)

You can’t buy many gadgets for less than a tenner - but you can tinker with your existing ones.

This tech-themed pack of Sugru’s versatile gum comes with four sachets of the stuff and a booklet of modding ideas. Get moulding.
