As the saying goes…’all men love gadgets’. So when it comes to buying a gift for the man in your life, you can’t go wrong with buying him a gadget. Gadgets can come in all different shapes, sizes, types and uses, so you’re spoilt for choice. From my own personal experience, I always try and narrow down my search by looking for interesting gadgets that matches his interests, his hobbies and the occasion. For example, my boyfriend is a bit of a music lover- many of my gifts to him have been based around this theme. Although he loves to dress well and is quite particular in what he wears, very rarely do I buy him clothes, unless he is with me to chose and try them on, as 9 times out of 10 I know I will chose the wrong thing.
Since launch, MyRedPacket has brought in some wierd, wonderful, funny and useful gadgets. What i’d like to do match some of the gadgets we have in stock to types of interests and personalities.
Music Gadget Lover

And even better, he can record what he has created.
