Crosley USB Turntable
You know those annoying people who claim old school records sound better than anything else? Well yep, as much as we love all things digital here at Shiny Shiny we've been known to say that a few times in the past. So enter the Crosley USB turntable, a really damn good-looking turntable complete with front-end speaker, a belt-driven turntable mechanism inside and a diamond stylus needle. This Crosley turntable actually includes a software suite to transform records into digital files and its built-in USB port makes it easy to hook everything up to your computer and really get busy. An ideal gift for those serious about their music with a few records in their collection to get started. Available from Urban Outfitters for £160.
If you’ve got a geeky girl to buy for this year but you’re struggling for present ideas then take a look at our flashy expensive list for Christmas 2012, complete with the coolest USB turntable, a luxury leather tote for laptops, a gold-plated vibrator and Nintendo’s Wii U.
We’ve divided our gift guides up this year to cater for those who don’t want to break the bank (our under £50 guide) and this one is specially created for those who have a money tree in their back garden. You lucky little things.
Admittedly gift guides geared up for girls may seem a bit outdated and we know both sexes can enjoy the same kind of tech (do we really need to go over this AGAIN?), but come on guys, it’s the 5th of December and we’re already full of mince pies and mulled wine, so couldn’t think of any smarter way to divide up the ideas.
Let us know in the comments below what you’ve got on your Christmas list this year…
