With the festive season upon us once again, you might be stuck for the perfect presents. Forget the socks, ties and bottles of perfume; here is a selection of the top technology gifts for Christmas that certainly won’t be shoved to the back of the cupboard.
Before revolutionising entertainment and technology with the iPod, the iPhone and the iPad, Apple had reinvented the desktop with the iMac in 1998. The all-in-one Apple computer was first designed with a round shape and in rainbow colours, before the latest innovation with its ultra-thin design, magnificent LCD anti-reflective widescreen and high performance technology. Don’t forget the all-important accessories, including headsets and headphones, USB hubs, and blank media such as DVD. The iMac is a perfect gift that certainly won’t be remiss this Christmas.

One of the most sought toys of the year is the Flying Fairy, by Flutterbye, a beautiful, magical fairy that really flies.
