G IS FOR GADGETS

ANKER SOUNDCORE WIRELESS SPEAKER

There are Bluetooth speakers and then there are really good Bluetooth speakers. We used this one at a party recently and we loved it. The sound is so so so good and, given its tiny size, the battery is astonishingly good - like 24 hours of power good - and this tiny brick takes up no space at all. If you want to play music off your phone with no wires and no hassle, this beauty will bring your party to life. £25, anker.com

SEGWAY MINIPRO

You’ve probably seen those Segway tours you can do when you go on holiday to a city in the sun, but have you thought about owning your own? The good news is Segway have produced a mini model that’s more practical, but still allows you to get from A to B on two wheels. It  has a range of 12 miles, goes at 10 miles an hour, and this one is completely hands-free. Sounds mad. Looks amazing. And it’s surprisingly easy to master. £425, GearBest

THE EVENT BEER CHILLER STICKS

We love these beauties. Who wants warm beer on a hot day? Not us. And while putting a load of bottled beers in the freezer is an option, we know what it’s like when they suddenly crack. Not a problem with these chiller sticks. Simply pop one into a warm bottle of beer and, hey presto, they’re cold within seconds. And the great news is they can be used again and again.
