puiXbox 360 - £179.99

For the gaming guy there is only one console worth shelling out for this Christmas.

The Xbox 360 has had its prices slashed over the past few months, and it's now possible to buy the 60GB console with a choice of top class titles such as Gears of War 2, Fallout 3 or FIFA 09 for as little as £179.99.

That's £10 cheaper than the Wii, offers next generation graphics, fantastic online gaming and movie rentals through Xbox Live.

uiPod Touch - £200.63

If there's one mobile device everyone should own this Christmas, it's the fantastic iPhone, which offers the best mobile web, music and video experience on the market.

However, if the restrictive nature of the tie in with O2 makes this impossible, go for the iPod Touch instead.

The sexy music player features all the great entertainment, Wi-Fi and good looks of its telephone counterpart, but without the extortionate prices and exclusive tie-ins.

However, Rolly's party-piece is the encoding system which turns MP3s into dance routines, making it the coolest MP3 player on the market.
