Klean Kanteen Vacuum Insulated Pint Cup-Brushed St&hellip Klean Kanteen
I take my own drink with me to work, having to regularly fill up a glass from a larger bottle. I decided I needed something a little better than a standard glass - and I like having my own things that only I use.

While this does work to keep things cooler for longer, it obviously isn't as good at insulating drinks as a travel mug is - the open top is a clear inlet for heat. Having said that, it's perfectly fine for something you're drinking now, rather than in three hours time.

As with all Klean Kanteen products, I have to mention its looks - it is a thing of beauty. It's ever so slightly matte to the touch, feels extremely solidly made, and is a dream to rinse out -… Read more
Linkee Trivia Game by Linkee® 4 little questions. 1 big link.
Linkee Trivia Game by Linkee® 4 little questions. 1 big link.
This is a really fun game - we played it all Christmas. It's great to try and guess the link, especially trying to get in before the other players.

The range of difficulty is quite striking - some are very easy, and some are extremely difficult or obscure. There's definitely an amount of 'have to know the answer', but it's still great fun. The tide can turn mid-game too - I remember being four ahead and then losing 6-4 to one of the other players!

It's a little boring for the question master, but you can swap between games.

The other issue is that once you've heard the link, they kind of stick in your mind - so if you play it a lot and run out of cards it's… Read more
Monoprice Headphone Splitter with Separate Volume &hellip by Monoprice
4.0 out of 5 stars Perfect for couples, 17 Mar 2014
There aren't too many examples of a headphone splitter, and far fewer with individual volume controls, which sealed the deal for me.

At £2.50 it's difficult to beat - there are many more 'stylish' options at much higher prices, but this is really a utility product, not a fashion statement.

As to be expected from the price, the build quality isn't great - the cables are thin and the plastic feels a bit cheap, but they aren't major gripes.

We use it for train journeys between London and Manchester where we catch up on Podcasts, for which it couldn't be better.

Definitely recommended - especially for the volume controls.
