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 your secret Santa with our nifty list of the top tech for less than £20 - perfect for some connected festive fun, without breaking the bank.
The Crafty Robot (from £9)
This Kickstarter success story turns any papercraft design - no matter how bonkers - into a moving robot, no engineering skills or batteries needed.
Stick the rechargeable module into a USB port for 30 seconds and you'll get, wait for it, 30 seconds of runtime. Build a collection using the online templates, or finally realise your dream of an army of Jeff Bridges minions.
Crab Multi-Tool (£13)
Oh, sure, that Swiss Army Knife might look cool - but its sleek usefulness and sentimental value can't touch the snappy style of this crab-shaped multi-tool.
Chances are, you'll be so impressed by its clever claws, beach-ready beech wood body and the battery of stainless steel tools hidden within its shell that you'll relegate your old blade to the drawer in a pinch.
Logitech Doodle (£20)
Buying for an office hound who spends 75% of their waking hours battling the tedium of relentless spreadsheets and email chains? Gift them a Logitech Doodle Mouse.
It won't do much to fight the office grind, but we defy anyone to look down at its swirly design and not feel inspired. Or, you know, crushed by the mind-numbing lack of creativity in their dead-end job. Sorry.
SPOTIFY PREMIUM (from £9.99/month)
Not everyone in your life will already have a Spotify subscription. Maybe they've been getting by with the free version, adverts and all. Or perhaps they've been muddling along with a handful of MP3s ripped from their 20-year-old CDs. Either way, it's your duty to make their life better by giving them a Premium Subscription this Christmas.
For a mere £9.99 they'll get a month's worth of full Spotify access, including offline listening and streaming via Sonos, Amazon Echo and other connected devices. What's more, if they haven't tried it before they'll qualify for a 30-day free trial before their proper sub starts, meaning you'll have given them two free months, and can therefore expect a gift worth twice as much from them in return. Whaddya mean that's not the spirit of Christmas?
Raspberry Pi Zero W (£16)
When better than Christmas Day to make a start on that sound-synchronised synthesiser/LED project you've been mooting?
Gift yourself the Raspberry Pi Zero W and you'll find a mini-board that takes the best of its brilliant predecessor, and throws Wi-Fi and Bluetooth into the mix. With a raft of online guidance at your disposal, you'll be hacking the tree lights in no time.
It’s a good six months until Blighty gets its one BBQ-worthy weekend of the year - but it's never too early to get prepared. After all, you don't want a repeat of last year's gasless cookout. Burning the shed really wasn't worth it for those mediocre bangers.
This single-use, biodegradable grill is no bigger than a cereal box, can be assembled in less than five minutes and releases around 50% less CO2 than its aluminum counterparts. If only the warm glow of self-righteousness could toast marshmallows.
Goji Mini Portable Wireless Speaker (£13)
Is it a macaroon? Is it a yo-yo? Sadly, it's neither - but Goji's pocketable Bluetooth speaker is the next best thing.
No, you won't be soundtracking any house parties with its modest power output - but at least you'll never have to suffer tinny smartphone speakers again. And, with IPX4 water resistance, it should survive your next game of bathtime bakery.
Snakehive Wilderness Phone Case (£13)
Luxury doesn't usually come with change from a £20 note, but these wooden phone wraps from Snakehive do a ruddy good job of trying.
Available for a host of handsets, including the iPhone 8 and Samsung Galaxy S8, we're particularly keen on this bamboo number. Stick your new iPhone X in the sustainbly sourced shell and people might actually believe that you had some cash left to buy an expensive case.
