At the moment we seem to be coming across new and exciting health, fitness and lifestyle gadgets on a daily basis, so we were really excited to learn about a product called Valkee. The concept behind Valkee is a little weird, so bear with us on this one… Valkee works by substituting the mood-elevating effects you'd usually get from the sun by channelling bright lights directly to specific regions of your brain through your ear. Yes, it sounds like something from Saw, but it's 100% safe has CE Class II(a) medical device certification and is clinically tested. Not only can it pick you up during the dreary winter months, but it can also prevent you getting down too. Now we haven't had chance to test out a Valkee yet, so we're not sure whether it's a little gimmicky or worth the pennies, but if you know someone who suffers during winter then it's probably worth giving it a go. Available from Valkee for £185.
When it comes to Christmas gifts we’re all rather predictable creatures really, cuddly toys for kids, books for dads, cosmetics for mums, you get the picture.
Well this year we’re daring you to push the boat out a little and try experimenting with a few different types of presents. Over the past few weeks we’ve been collecting together ten new products and gadgets that you (probably) never knew existed, yet they’re all cool, quirky, practical and most importantly all make great gifts.
