Something a little bit different. The Rolson Tools Helping Hand is a little device that I realised I needed over Christmas. This desktop tool comprises of two crocodile clips and a magnifying glass that allows for adjustment. A result is a little tool that can help hold items in place if you are untangling, gluing, soldering or painting items that are just too small or fiddling for the fingertips. Or perhaps you simply need a third and fourth set of hands.

Cheap and cheerful at £7.59 on Amazon, this might only be used in an average household but when it is, it’s just the most useful gadget to have.
