4. iHOME COLOURTUNES IPOD SPEAKER

Price - $92

Description:

- Separate buttons control the system's audio power, lighting power, and volume, so you can have the speakers off but the lighting on, and vice-versa.

- Plays and charges most docking iPod models.

Price - $129.95

Description:

- Rings lost their bling? The Ultrasonic Jewellery Cleaner will be music to your ears!

- This smart machine uses the power of sound (the stuff so high you can't hear) to clear the gunk from your precious jewellery and let its natural sparkle shine through again!

- Powerful enough for not only domestic but professional use as well, the 42 kHz sound waves from the Ultrasonic Jewellery Cleaner produce millions of microscopic bubbles that will clean everything from your rings and bracelets, to your earrings and chains.

- Not only will it clean your jewellery, the Ultrasonic Jewellery Cleaner is also a gem around the house! Clean your watch (waterproof one of course), your fountain pen, razor heads, printer heads, small silverware, small machined metal parts and even dentures! (Although personally, we wouldn't be putting the dentures in with the engagement ring.)
