For most of us Christmas shopping isn't just stressful because we have to carry lots of bags around, wrap everything up and then transport it across the country before the festivities begin. It's just so damn expensive. If we don't spend crazy amounts on loved ones we feel like we're just not good people and the list of those we're expected to buy for gets longer every year (can everyone just stop having babies already!?).
However, if money is no object to you, you've made peace with the fact you'll be paying your credit card off for the next 40 years or you're just looking to really spoil that special someone, then we've collected together a list of ten luxury (and obviously expensive) tech products that are all rather sparkly and / or gold to bump up that price tag.
Warning: Like most luxury products, not all of these are useful or particularly usable, particularly on the night bus.
Native Union Swarovski Crystal Pop Phone in Silver
The retro Pop phone, which has proved to be a big hit with celebrities, has had a sparkly reinvention and this glitzy new model is covered in more than 3,100 Swarovski crystals. The classic style receiver offers a modern day twist, connecting to your mobile phone, laptop or iPad it allows you to make and take conference, Skype and VoIP calls, but you can obviously still access everything on your phone at the same time. In a way it's useless and an extra accessory to carry round with you, but we imagine most people would be too hypnotised by the crystals to care. Available exclusively at John Lewis at the end of November for £500 (details coming soon).
