We aren't talking £1,000 bags here, but great affordable designer focused tech that makes the perfect gift. Here are our favourites.


Michael Kors Access MKGO


This Fossil-made Michael Kors smartwatch will work with most Android or Apple phones and gives a stylish take on the smartwatch. It's got a distinctive look that's perfect for anyone who isn't afraid to style it out. The digital crown is used for scrolling through the apps, and of course the watch face can be customised to suit the wearer's style that morning, afternoon, or night.


Skagen Hybrid Smartwatch


The Skagen Connected unisex hybrid smartwatch delivers a more traditional looking circular watch with a hidden fitness tracker so you can ditch the Fitbit look. Because it's a hybrid it doesn't need daily or weekly charging and with a range of different styles available, you're sure to find the perfect one for a friend or family.


Fossil Gen 5 smartwatch


Smartwatches don't have to be clunky, and Fossil's newest generation of smartwatches certainly prove that. Able to work with both Android and iPhone, the touchscreen watch offers activity tracking and notifications on the go. Fossil makes a number of different styles too, if you want to shop a precise look.

Ted Baker

Ted Baker Cable Tidy Bag


This one's for those that already have plenty of gadgets and are always on the go. A cable tidy bag that's got multiple compartments to store your chargers, cables, and other bits and bobs when you're out and about.

Ted Baker

Ted Baker Qi Wireless Charging Pad


If they've got a new smartphone, chances are it's capable of wirelessly charging. Power up your Qi enabled phone with this stylish 7.5W wireless Qi charging pad from Ted Baker. Charging never looked so good.


Fitbit Flex 2 with Tory Burch Fitbit Flex 2 Accessory Pendant


Transform your Fitbit Flex 2 tracker into jewellery with this elegant pendant that saves you from wearing it on your wrist. Available in silver or gold, a built-in magnet lets your tracker know you're using the pendant and adapts your step tracking accordingly. You either need to make sure they already own the tracker, or just buy one separately.


Mipow Mirror Power


Why settle for just a boring power bank when you can get that "always-after-power-friend" in your life a power bank with not only a funky pattern but also a compact make-up mirror built-in to the design. Better still there is an LED backlight below the front mirror for using the mirror in the dark.

Kate Spade

Kate Glitter Liquid Case for iPhone 11 Pro

Who says iPhone cases have to be boring? This beautiful iPhone 11 Pro case from Kate Spade brings a vibrant feel to any smartphone. Plus, if your stylish friend has a little one in their life, they get a bonus distraction in the form of its mesmerising glitter movements. Protected in style.

Kate Spade

Kate Spade Apple Watch strap

This Kate Spade floral Apple Strap is perfect for anyone who's a fan of the designer and owns an Apple Watch. Far more accessible than the Hermes Apple Watch strap below, the delicate design will fit any 38mm or 40mm strap and instantly move the wearer away from the bog standard Apple Watch look.

Hermès / Apple

Apple Watch Herms Strap

How to do you match style with function? Get them an Apple Watch Hermès strap. Handmade using Barenia leather that's super smooth to the touch, or more textured Epsom leather or supple Swift leather depending on taste, the stainless steel buckle recalls those on the straps of a saddle, apparently as a nod to the equestrian heritage of Hermès - classy stuff.
