USB Home Endoscope

Yep, that's right, with the USB Home Endoscope from Brando, you can lean over the desk and explore your own colon, much to the dismay of your boss.

Well, perhaps not, but there are many less-graphic uses for this tool which has a 640 x 480 resolution and an adjustable LED. It's pretty cheap too but doesn't work with Macs.

Victorinox Swisstool Spirit Plus

What would Christmas be without a few tools? No, I'm not talking about your useless grandparents genuinely laughing at cracker jokes.

The Victorinox Swisstool Spirit Plus is a DIY enthusiasts dream piece of kit and has everything you need to get inside tech from screwdrivers to wire strippers.

It somehow packs about 40 functions into one 10cm-sized tool and comes nicely presented in a belt pouch. What better to crack some nuts with?
