Nextbase is the UK’s leading dash cam manufacturer, offering a range of affordable and easy to use dash cams with HD quality video recording.  The Nextbase 222 dashcam records in 1080p instead of 720p, and has a six layer lens. The viewing angle is 140 degrees as well as having a 2.5" HD IPS touch screen that allows customers to have crystal clear footage and viewing capability. 

It also comes with the Nextbase Click&Go Pro mount with integrated neodymium magnet connectors, meaning that the Dash Cam is entirely secure in its mount, and that you can manoeuvre it with just one hand! The 222 also includes a Intelligent Parking Mode, which means that if any movement is felt on the car whilst it is parked or left unattended, the Dash Cam will immediately turn on and begin recording, hopefully catching the cause of the movement. This is very handy for trying to figure out where those mysterious dents and scratches have come from!

Chalkdown sparkling cider | £12.95 a  bottle

The sparkling cider also comes beautifully boxed.

The Orb | £29.99

The Orb may look like just an ordinary drinks bottle but it's more than that. Ideal for cyclists due to functioning as a water bottle, but having a  lid that contains super bright LEDs, that illuminates the bottle with over 70 lumens of light. 1/3 of accidents are caused by side impact from a vehicle, the Orb can keep you safe and seen from the side at night. My husband used to cycle to and from work so this is definitely a handy item considering the accidents he was involved in.
