The one-time internet sensation but still darn useful fleece-blanket-with-sleeves will prove a joy to any tech or telly loving mum who feels the cold. She can wrap herself up and still pick up the remote, a cuppa or Tweet away on the laptop you bought her the Christmas before last.

Sony XR100 Digital Photo Frame

RH Numbers

Mum's love snaps of their offspring - the grandkids too, if she's old enough to have some. And the hi-tech way to enjoy pictures of the progeny is a digital photo frame. Don't settle for a titchy seven-incher, though - show off with a big, 10.2in screen with a good 1024 x 600 resolution, Sony's TruBlack coating for brighter, more vivid colours, and a smart on-board video processor.

The XR100 has 2GB of storage - enough for 4000 2Mp shots - and a USB slot to plug in more. You can also connect cameras and such, both for snaps and for video, HD or SD. And it's all decked out in a stylish, shiny black frame.
