It's been an iPod week.

When we've not been falling off our chairs laughing at the Shuffle Crucifix, we've been swinging between moans about the scratches on our Nano and whoops of mindless excitement about Monday's arrival of the video iPod in shops.

The new Pod doesn't have any decent accessories yet, but for all your Shuffle and Nano owners out there, here are five of the best extras before you upgrade to the video wonder.

  • iBelieve AKA The Shuffle Crucifix (top left). We were a bit slow on this one. Gizmodo spotted it a few months back. It's the ultimate device for tuning into sermon Podcasts - a $13 Crucifix holder that you can hang round your neck, lanyard-style. In the iBelieve's defence, its makers give $2 to various undisclosed childrens' charities for each one sold. It's on sale from Devoted1.

  • Xtreme Mac AirPlay2 FM for Nano (bottom left). Griffin's Nano FM transmitter is a beaut', but we're not 100 per cent convinced at the way it hogs the screen. This similarly handsome rival has a separate display instead. £36 to you via iPodWorld (the following three are also on sale from its site)

  • iMojo (centre). Make like an extra out of Fame with this forearm Shuffle holder. It's one of the few that we've seen that goes on the forearm instead of the bicep, making it easier to get to the controls. A splendid option for the jogger in search of Eye of the Tiger accompaniement. £13.

  • Xtreme Mac Microglove Skin for Nano (above right). Some Nano covers try to be unobtrusive. This one's loud, macho and very rugged.  It's also pretty cheap at £13.
  • Speck iPod Nano FunSkin Grass (bottom right). You need us to explain this one? 'Course not - it's simply a gorgeous, attention-seeking bit of design that'll keep your Nano pristine. £24.
