    1. This portable power bank that comes with two USB ports, so you can help a friend out (or just charge your phone and tablet simultaneously).

    Promising review: "This is a really stylish item, one that can be kept in a purse or left out on the table while being used. 12,000mAh charge and to put that into perspective, my wife's iPhone 6s Plus has a battery of 2750mAh, so over 4 x the battery time of the phone before it needs recharging itself. The cable that come with it is relatively short but you can use any Micro USB cables that you have lying around the house if you need longer. All in all, this is a nice piece of tech that has a big enough charge in it to do any job I am asking of it. Because of that and it being just £15.99, I'm giving it 10/10" – Harmony

    2. This water-resistant, sturdy umbrella that comes with a lifetime guarantee, because it's about time you got an umbrella that you won't have to discard in the middle of a rainstorm.

    Promising review: "Brilliant product, quite a sturdy umbrella. Had the opportunity to test drive it today in the famous Glasgow weather and it held up well I have to say! Dries really quickly after a quick shake. Love the button release for opening and closing. Impressed with the lifetime guarantee that comes with this umbrella, happy to know if needed I can be sent a replacement! Recommended!" – QueenBee

    3. This ionic shower head that will increase the water pressure in your shower considerably and filter out some of the harsh minerals in the water, which your hair and skin will thank you for.

    Promising review: "Really impressed with this. Initially bought one for my daughter as her flat has very low water pressure. This shower head certainly pepped up the feel or force of water spray and she was delighted.

    Although the pressure in my own house is fine I liked the look of this shower head and also the feel of the spray so I bought another one for myself. I'm not quite sure how it does it but it emits a a softer/smoother spray of water that feels much nicer than my previous shower head." – M. Chitty

    4. This colourful quilted throw that'll brighten up your winter evenings and looks way more expensive than it is.

Also it is very easy to install. all in all, I would recommend the curtain to anyone." – Milana

    12. These very pretty and comfy memory foam slippers.

    Promising review: "I LIVE IN THESE THINGS! Seriously, a very sturdy little warm slipper that you can run out to mailbox in. Also, the sole, though a hard rubber, breaks in quickly to give you a custom fit feel. Don't know if it's important to anyone else, but these slippers are also quiet. Yes, quiet, no loud slapping against the floor as you walk, which I like. I think these are well priced. I'll certainly get my money's worth." – Christine
