It’s payday, it’s Friday, and we feel like treating ourselves. So here’s all the stuff Team Gadgette wants this week.
First aid biscuits
I’m feeling a bit snuffly and sorry for myself this week so I’d like this box of iced biscuits in the shape of first aid treats. OK, so the idea of eating a plaster isn’t the most appealing, but frankly when I feel like this I’ll stuff my face with absolutely anything.
First Aid Biscuit Tin, £30 from the incredible Biscuiteers.
It amazes me in 2016 that we still need printers as much as we do, but my lack of one has been a real vexation lately. This morning I needed to sign a form and a digital signature wasn’t acceptable, and last week I wanted to print my airline boarding pass and couldn’t. This HP model has wifi, a scanner, and kind of looks like a whale, which I appreciate.
HP Deskjet 3630 All in One Printer, £39.99 from the home of exciting stationery, Ryman.
Gamer in Chief Emma
I would quite happily cocoon myself in adorable plushies and this is the one I have my eye on next. Ideally I’d have a full-sized Baymax in my life but until that day comes, I’m more than willing to accept this much smaller and no less cute version.
Big Hero 6 Fabrikations Baymax Plush, £16.99 from the home of nerdery, Forbidden Planet.
Graffiti cake mix
I want to be considered a creative genius baker but I’m not. Sure, my M&M brownies would blow. Your. Mind. But when it comes to truly impressive, Instagram-worthy stuff I fall short. Which is why I really want this graffiti cake mix from Firebox so that when the occasion comes, I can self-rise to it.
£9.99 on pre-order from Firebox now. Preordering cake mix. World’s gone mad. *Preorders*
Science Officer Jen
I had an old Kindle years ago and currently use a cheap Kobo, but I’m desperate for a better e-reader. The Kindle Voyage is pricey but it has everything I’d really like from an e-reader. My Kobo has no backlight or physical buttons. I often don’t have time to read until I’m in bed, so the lack of a backlight is a real pain. I love touchscreens on Kindles but the lack of page-turning buttons gets to me when I’m wearing gloves because it’s cold waiting for my train. I don’t want to take my gloves off just to turn the page, dammit!
It’s £169.99 for the Wi-Fi only version or £229.99 for 3G, from Amazon UK.
Nessie kitchen utensils
I’m a sucker for things that are cute, practical, and Scottish, so I’m all over this Nessie family for the kitchen. The designs are adorable and I love the tiny little feet that makes them stand upright. The largest is a colander, the medium-sized one is a ladle, and the baby Nessie is a tea strainer. I love that they stack together!
£34.99 from Firebox. Let’s hope they don’t disappear in your sink.
