It’s all too easy to become a tad carried away when it comes to buying new gadgets; men these days are flooded with seemingly endless bits of gear and technologically advanced gadgetry that promises to improve their lives exponentially.

Of course most just aren’t worth the cash: it’s best to do a bit of research before parting with your hard earned money and making sure you are getting something that is genuinely useful, well-constructed and worth your money.

The Aeropress

This is a revolution in coffee making and will save you so much money that it will pay for itself by the end of the first working week of the year. For coffee aficionados, spending the odd £2 here and £3 there on coffee can add up to an absolute fortune. The Aeropress will solve all of your coffee woes and has an amazingly slick design to boot.

At around £20-25 (depending on where you buy it) the Aeropress is incredibly easy to use, makes high grade espresso style coffee and is the cheapest way to get your high class coffee fix. Grab one – it’ll change your life!

iPod Touch

Last year may have been all about the brand new iPhones but Apple didn’t leave its classic iPod out when it came to surprise new versions. Technically this is the sixth generation of iPods, although it could be seen as a stripped down version of what you can get already. With the 4 inch Retina display and the same dual core processor, it’s familiar but lighter. It only comes in silver and, as it’s a lower specification device, has a lower price tag; perfect if you’re after a casual use iPod for music on the move, iPod casino games or any other kind of casual games. You really can’t beat an iPod for ease of use, convenience and stylish design. It is definitely worth having one of these in your arsenal of devices.

Pebble Smartwatch

Proving that if you have a good idea crowd funding alone can help you realize your product,  Pebble raised a million dollars to develop their smartwatch. It’s incredibly useful and feels totally futuristic: it will serve you up your email, social media feeds and notifications right there on your wrist. It couldn’t be easier to keep on top of everything. Oh, and it tells the time of course! There is also the added bonus of looking like a spy and everyone wants that, right?

Apple iPad

Our second Apple product; we just think they’re that good. Tablets are obviously incredibly useful and increasingly difficult to do without. Whether you need to check the weather, get online for your emails, find out where you need to go or read newspapers; there’s an app for whatever you want. The iPad Air has a swift processor and retina display which mean it is snappy and easy on the eyes. If you can stretch to it, it is definitely the best choice. If you just can’t afford it (and Apple isn’t exactly known for their low price points) you could check out the iPad Mini with Retina Display. Alternatively, for the best deal possible, you could have a look at the last generation iPads.
