The festive season always guarantees one thing: food!! And lots of it. But with so many more mouths to feed, and so much more time spent in the kitchen, how is one to prepare? Well Samsung’s smart-fridge could be the answer you’re looking for!
Yes, yes we’re writing about a fridge…but it’s not just any fridge, oh no, it’s a four door, Wi-Fi
enabled, music playing über fridge!
It has an integrated LCD touchscreen, which can link to Samsung Galaxy and S3 and mirror your device, as well as being able to broadcast from your TV (if your TV is capable of transmitting to external devices).

Not to mention this fridge even has the ability (and added convenience) of being able to make and receive calls! No more trying to dial with your elbows halfway through a bake!
Not to mention the available storage is immense. 28 cu.ft worth of Christmas dinner storage! As well as Twin Cooling Plus, which helps maintain a constant temperature for your goods, and even adjustable temperatures for different areas of the fridge! So you can keep your cheeses or fruit and veg at your ideal temperature, whilst the rest of your stock stays at another chosen temperature. Genius!

From food to wine now with our next pick. Anyone who appreciates a truly excellent wine will know the importance of consuming it before it has a chance to oxidise, making it impossible to simply try a glass of wine without having to consume the entire bottle. This might not be too much of a problem for some people, but a great deal of excellent vino is getting wasted! Enter Coravin’s wine access system. An incredible feat of engineering which enables you to enter a bottle of wine, through the cork, pour a glass of wine and then reseal the cork as you
remove the device! Your wine is unspoilt and un-oxidised, while you’re enjoying just as much, or as little, wine as you like! The perfect gift for wine connoisseurs this Christmas! Or even just a handy gadget for your own home!

For our final pick we have a real treat, you could say we’ve saved the best for last. Whilst the rest of the items of this list are all excellent and would make fantastic gifts, none of them quite top the Martin Aircraft. Your eyes do not deceive you, this is indeed a personal jetpack!!!!
Yes, as of now you can put your name on the pre-order list for your own jetpack. These are state of the art pieces of kit that have actually been contracted by emergency services, so have really stringent safety checks and high standards. Can you
imagine the look on your loved one’s face when you present to them the confirmation that their jetpack pre-order has been secured?! Priceless right?! Well not quite; the company require a refundable $5,000 deposit and then $150,000 for the final result. But seriously…a jetpack?! Oh, you’ll have to keep them waiting until the aircraft is ready for distribution in 2017 though…but in order to secure a place on the list you need to pre-order as soon as possible. Maybe this could be really, really organised gift buying?
