No, granny is not getting into gaming, kids. Well, possibly not, but a gadget like Kinect and Your Shape: Fitness Evolved software is a rather good way of using the technology for less frivolous ends than your average first-person shooter.

Mums of any age will surely enjoy getting up and doing a spot of exercise, whether it's in YS:FE's personal training, fitness or gym games section. The routines and exercises are geared towards newbies, but the progression system will also appeal to mums who exercises regularly.

Sennheiser PX 210 BT wireless headphones

RH Numbers

These compact yet comfortable Bluetooth cordless headphones are great for long journeys or simply lounging around on the sofa. They produce a warm, textured sound that captures plenty of detail, though the maximum volume level is relatively limited.

The PX 210 BTs are collapsible, handy when they need to be tidied away, and support the Apt-X codec if she has a player that supports it. If not, they'll link up to any ordinary Bluetooth-capable media player or phone.
