Water-resistant and boasting a 16-hour battery life, let your loved one play their favourite tunes wherever they fancy with this travel-size tech from Sony.

Imagine the joy your recipient will feel unwrapping this wavy Crosley record player... OK, so there’s a theme developing here, but there can never be too many ways to listen to Mariah Carey’s All I Want For Christmas Is You. For old-school vinyl lovers, this gift will be the cherry on top of the cake (or the star on top of the tree, eh?)
If you’re keen to make this Christmas a memorable one, there’s no better way to do so than by making sure it’s remembered, right?
