Available at Victorinox, priced £45.
We’re not quite sure what a ‘smartphone e-brand for digital natives’ means, but the stats behind the new Honor 8 Pro speak for themselves.

Available at Huawei’s Vmall, priced £474.
Mad Men may be over, but that doesn’t mean you can’t type like it’s 1969.

Just don’t let your boss catch you with Scotch.

Available at duPont Registry, priced £180,135.
Boss breakfast time once and for all with the Master Pan Divided Frying Pan. The five-sectioned skillet is capable of whipping up every core component of the Great British fry-up at once, and better yet there’s less to wash-up (should you find a dishwasher big enough).

The free earbuds that come with a new phone usually aren’t worth the plastic they’re moulded from, so upgrade to a pair of quality cans.

Available at Selfridges, priced £189.99.
