The Weekend Spend: 7 fantastic post-payday tech buys

Whether you want to venture into the great outdoors, or explore a virtual wilderness in Tomb Raider, we've got you covered

Amazon Kindle (£60)

Amazon's entry-level ebook reader is one of the best out there – it's lightweight, slim, packs an impressive E Ink screen, and gets you access to the massive Kindle Store.

And now Amazon's lopped £10 off the price, so it's light on your wallet as well as in your pocket. Hooray!

American Psycho Business Card Holder (£15)

Your business cards may not have a subtle off-white colouring or a watermark, but you can wrap them up in this infinitely more tasteful stainless steel card holder patterned after Patrick Bateman's card from American Psycho. The lettering is something called Silian Rail, you know.

Bonus: it's so faithful to the original movie prop, it even duplicates the glaring typo. See if you can spot it.

Lego Star Wars Micro Fighters Millennium Falcon (£9)

Lego's range of pint-sized Star Wars kits includes everything from Star Destroyers to X-Wings (and prequel-era stuff, but the less said about them, the better). But the highlight of the range is the dinky Millennium Falcon, complete with Han Solo minifigure. It'll serve as a nice appetiser for the £130 full-size version.

LifeStraw Go (£40)

Prepare yourself for the apocalypse (or your next hike, which might end in much the same way) with this handy gadget. It'll purify most water sources for you, filtering out 99.9999% of water-borne bacteria and 99.9% of waterborne protozoan parasites.

You could even take it out in town and sup at puddles on the high street, if the mood takes you.
