If you've still not finished your Christmas shopping and are looking for those last minute gifts, here's five of the best under £50.

Best for audiophiles: iPod Shuffle 2GB

 

Colourful, virtually indestructible and talkative, but enough about Grandma. The iPod Shuffle is infinitely more desirable, and it speaks 20 languages to pipe up and let you know what you're listening to. The updated version now les you replace Apple's buds with your own choice of headphones, and offers up five different colour options for you to choose from. It can't make a decent plum pudding, mind.

Buy it: Apple Store, £45

Long-haul calls to distant relatives can be a once-a-year event. Send your mates a Powermonkey and they'll be able to boost their phone batteries three times off a single charge, giving them no excuse not to ring the grandparents to thank them for the annual Christmas jumper. It'll also charge up their iPods, camera and PSP as well, and comes in a choice of black, silver, purple, pink and blue.

Buy it: Power Traveller, £34.95

Let's face it, standing around a 3-inch screen to review the family photo album is no fun. Instead, give someone the gift of instant sticky-backed prints, thanks to the PoGo's Zero Ink technology.

Buy it: Amazon, £22.99

Sure Uncle Terry's going to give up smoking and run the marathon next year. Give his New Year's resolution a boost with the Nike + iPod Sport Kit. What's your excuse now, Uncle Tel?
