Bang & Olufsen Beoplay H4
As wireless headphones slowly replace their tethered cousins, there’s a growing concern that we’ll misplace a pair on every train/bus/bench we encounter. That was until Bang & Olufsen released the Beoplay H4, anyway. The gold star cans are far too robust (and good looking) to set aside, while a razor sharp sound quality will keep them on your ears for years to come.
Available at Bang & Olufsen, priced £249.
Polaroid Snap Touch
Film isn’t dead, it was just resting its eyes until the Polaroid Snap Touch was released. The digital-meets-analogue snapper still prints like a Polaroid, but actually allows you to preview images before you commit. Which means less fuzzy photos of your mate’s elbow, and more snap-happy, Insta-friendly group shots.
Available at Amazon, priced £159.99.
Sleep Number 360 Smart Bed
Hearts and headboards may be ablaze during Valentine’s, but a duvet hogger keeps us cold all year round. To make the marital bed a happier place, Sleep Number’s Smart Bed warms feet, has anti-snoring technology and connects to your smartphone and fitness tracker to adjust mattress firmness and optimise your wake-up time. Sweet dreams.
Available at Sleep Number, price on request.
Sure, selfie sticks let you snap from a more impressive angle, but they also make you look like a bit of a tool. AirSelfie takes your photo game sky high with a four propeller-powered drone and an impressive 5MP camera for surefire social media props. Say cheese.
Available to pre-order at AirSelfie, priced around £212.

Available at Amazon, priced £24.
Bahama Gold 1978 Range Rover Reborn
Range Rovers these days are unfairly cast as the car of choice for the TOWIE set, but back in the day they were legitimately cool. Don’t believe us? Cast your eyes over this relaunched seventies model. No gauche upholstery, no white gloss paint – just a classic design that’s more at home in the Scottish Highlands than on Brentwood High Street.
Available from late 2017 at Land Rover, priced from £135,000.
