Morphy Richards spiraliser
Ok so the spiraliser trend isn’t as hot as it once was but it’s the perfect kitchen gadget for those looking to lose some weight in January. Cut down on the pasta, embrace courgetti. The price of this electric model has slowly decreased since 2017 but it was only briefly this cheap in October.Buy now from Amazon
Hecef kitchen knife set
This 5-knife set includes every blade you’ll need in the kitchen. There’s one for bread, a Santoku knife. And a 5-inch utility knife that, let’s be honest, you’ll use 90% of the time. They come with blade guards to keep the knives safe in the drawer.Buy now from Amazon
Now TV smart stick
Here’s a great gift to boost your Christmas time entertainment. You get the NOW TV smart stick, complete with 1-month Entertainment pass, 1-month movie pass and a day pass for Sky Sport. Christmas movies on the service include A Christmas Carol, Miracle on 34th Street and Jingle All the Way.Buy now from John Lewis
Google Home Mini
Make your home smart for peanuts. The Home Mini normally costs £49 but is available during Black Friday for just £19. Even if you don’t get on with Google Assistant, it’s worth the cost just as a mini radio and podcast speaker for the kitchen or bedroom.Buy now from John Lewis
Motorola Pulse Wireless
Who needs to spend £300 or more on headphones? Motorola is a much bigger name in phones than audio, and that is why you’re now able to get this pair for peanuts. They are full-size headphones with Bluetooth, and the option to use a cable should the battery run out. You’ll get 10 hours off a charge: not the longest, but having to recharge every few days doesn’t seem a big sacrifice when you pay under £20.Buy now from Argos
Amazon Fire TV Stick
We’re big fans of Amazon’s Fire TV stick, because it lets you do so much more than the average smart TV dongle. You can install loads of apps because the software is based on Android and you get access to Amazon’s own app store. These apps include Netflix, BBC iPlayer, catch-up services and games. It’s not just for Amazon’s own video streaming service.Buy now from Amazon
