    Christmas Gifts for Drivers, TV addicts and DIYers

    Driving to the in-laws on Boxing Day? Get there stress-free with a new sat nav! The TomTom VIA 130 (£129.99 from Halfords) has a "Speak & Go" function so you can control it with your voice – just say an address or 'take me home' and it plans the route straight away. Bluetooth enables you to make and answer calls safely whilst driving, and advance lane guidance gives clear directions when navigating difficult junctions. It uses travel info shared by millions of drivers to get the best routes and most accurate arrival times, whatever the time of day.

    And in a special Christmas promotion, TomTom is offering free maps for the lifetime of the product on selected devices – worth £79.99. You'll be able to download four brand new maps every year, totally free, meaning you receive all the latest updates to the road network, addresses and points of interest. Redemption is online with proof of purchase and the promotion runs until 24 December on all TomTom VIA and GO LIVE models.

    Alternatively, the TomTom Start 60 (£169.99 from Halfords) boasts a 6" screen, their biggest yet. Resolution is really sharp, whilst larger menus and buttons make inputting even simpler. It can be mounted on the dashboard as well as the windscreen. Parking Assist helps you to find car parks at your destination and spoken street names make turnings clearer. It comes pre-loaded with maps of 45 countries across Europe.

    One For All has a range of handy accessories to brighten up your TV viewing this Christmas. Want to watch satellite/cable or a late night DVD in bed, but your set-top box is in the lounge? The Wireless TV Sender (£59.99 from Currys, PC World and amazon.co.uk) distributes signals around your home without the need for messy cabling or a second receiver. The remote control will work in the bedroom too - so you can pause, rewind and record as normal, without going near the main TV.

    If you don't have satellite or cable, you can still watch all the Christmas movies in glorious HD or 3D! The SV9335 indoor aerial (£29.99 from amazon.co.uk) gives great reception up to Full HD and 3D (so long as your TV is Freeview HD or 3D compatible). Its patch technology offers up to 30% more bandwidth than traditional aerials, and four-stage filtering removes interference from mobile phones and wifi. It comes in a stylish, brushed aluminium finish and is just 26x26x2cm in size. Also ideal for second and third TV sets, where you don't have a connection to the rooftop aerial.

    Pushing buttons is so last year! Operate all your TV equipment with a flick of the wrist with the SmartControl Motion universal remote (£24.99 from Dixons, Currys, PC World and amazon.co.uk). Flick up then down for play; down then up for pause; left to rewind and right to fast-forward. Then, when you're half asleep, just flip it onto its front to turn everything off! It will control up to six different devices and set up takes less than three minutes, with just three key presses for the most popular brands.
