Fowl Play Is Required To Tune In For Right Pressie Duck

It is not too late yet to mail order a Christmas present or two, so here are a trio of ideas for those desperate to find a techie gizmo to wrap up.
For someone who can’t resist singing in the bath, a Bluetooth Duck might float their boat, giving an excellent opportunity to share a tub with a favourite recording artist!
Available on the Net for just £20, this fully waterproof floating speaker tunes into a device that stays safe and dry in the next room to belt out a few singalong tracks.
This yellow fowl would, no doubt, be great for giving rip to Life on the Ocean Wave or Bridge Over Troubled Water.
What’s more, it can be used to answer the phone as well, with its built-in-microphone and answer/ hangup button.
For those who prefer to serenade in the shower instead, an alternative is its sister product, the Bluetooth Silicone Shower Speaker.
For someone who habitually leaves Post-It Notes on the fridge, there is now a better way.
For just a tenner, you can buy them a Hi Voice Recorder Fridge Magnet. Just bigger than a credit card and one centimetre deep, it records a message of up to 10 seconds at the press of button and pulses red light until it is played back.
Finally, again for a tenner, to turn a hot hubby into a cool dude, look no further than the USB LED Clock Fan.
This little item plugs into a laptop’s USB port and its rapidly rotating fan not only blows out a stream of air it also displays an analogue clock face!
