This year, we’ve decided to try something new: welcome to the first of hopefully many gadget bundle giveaways! We’ve gathered a bunch of cool gadgets that don’t really warrant a full review, and bundled them all up into one big giveaway. One lucky winner will get their Christmas stocking presents sorted this year.

To be in with the best chance of winning, check out each review video – they all have a special code in them; note down the secret codes, then enter them in the competition widget for some additional entries – and you can get even more entries by inviting your friends to join too!

Avantree Powerhouse Desktop Charger (around $40)

Most USB chargers are black or grey bricks with a few ports on the front. You end up with wires trailing everywhere, and your thousands of dollars worth of devices are strewn flat on the table. They’re a bit of mess, if we’re honest. Avantree have turned that design trend on its head, hiding the charging ports underneath the device, and creating a platform for your devices to rest comfortably in an upright position.

The platform consists of rubber pieces which can be swapped for some alternate colors included in the pack: green or black base rubber sheet; plus red, green, grey and black cuboids to hold your device securely. The charger itself also comes in black or white, with the white model pictured below. It’s a neat way of offering a little customization; and the whole package is the most well designed USB charger I’ve ever come across.

The Powerhouse includes two short micro-USB cables, as well as a velcro underside and a number of cable-ties so you can tidy your own charging cables down to the right length. This version has one fast charging 2A, plus three 1A ports for smaller devices; however the company has also launched a Powerhouse Plus version, which has four fast charging ports.

Aukey 4-port USB3 Hub (around $20)

You’ve probably got a growing number of USB3 peripherals, but most computers only have 1 or 2 USB3 ports: you need a hub. The Aukey 4-port USB3 should serve you well for some time. Milled from a single block of aluminium, the brushed metal style looks gorgeous on any modern desktop.

Although unpowered, USB3 specifications increased the total power available to USB, so this shouldn’t be a problem. If 4 ports isn’t enough, Aukey also sell powered versions for 7 ports, and 10 ports.

Syllable D900 Wireless In-Ear Headphones ($80)

The Syllable D900 are among the first truly wireless in-ear headphones – there’s no cable between each earpiece. After the initial pairing they’re simple to operate – one quick push to turn each one on, with a longer push to turn them off. Expect about an hour battery life, but that should be enough for your morning run.

Sound quality and volume is good considering how tiny they are. They also feature a plastic protrusion which enables them to nestle into your ear securely – if you had problems with in-ear headphones always falling out before like I have, you should have a much better experience with these.

Moko Selfie Stick (under $20)

Love ’em or hate ’em, selfies are here to stay – if you’re going to take them, using the right tool gives you the creative freedom to capture some stunning images from creative angles. The Moko selfie stick is easy to use and reliable: I had no problems getting the Bluetooth to work and it reconnected in seconds each time. For large vistas in the background of your selfie, being able to extend the phone away from you is all important: the Moko selfie stick goes from 22cm up all the way up to 83cm. Using a simple twist to lock mechanism, even fully extended it remains fantastically stable.

The rechargeable battery will last for up to 15 hours of continuous use with a 2 week standby, and can be easily charged via a standard micro-USB port. Able to accommodate any phone up to 9cm in width (an iPhone 6 Plus is fine) and at an adjustable angle, the Moko Selfie stick is a superb stocking filler for the teenager or traveller in your life.

Selfie Stick with Bluetooth Remote & Tripod Stand, MoKo 4ft Extendable Self-portrait Monopod, Phone Holder Width Up to 88mm for iPhone 7/6S Plus, Galaxy S7 Edge, Pixel XL, Honor 5X, Moto, BLU - BLACK Selfie Stick with Bluetooth Remote & Tripod Stand, MoKo 4ft Extendable Self-portrait Monopod, Phone Holder Width Up to 88mm for iPhone 7/6S Plus, Galaxy S7 Edge, Pixel XL, Honor 5X, Moto, BLU - BLACK Easy to Use: Turn on the power button of the remote shutter, pair it with your phone via Bluetooth, and take photos with the accessible white handle button, one-hand manipulation.

Marsboy Bluetooth Speaker ($40)

Probably named after the planet due to it’s immense size, the Marsboy Bluetooth 4.0 speaker features a 5W 6.6m driver for good bass, and a built-in microphone to take calls.

Perfect for those late night intimate soireés, it even has an dazzling array of colored LEDs that give it the edge over competitors with your own mini light show. Another feature that really sets this apart from the multitude of competing portable speakers is that it can play directly from an micro-SD card, perfect for looping ambient sounds in a Halloween haunted house!

It also features TWS capability, which means if you buy two they can be linked for stereo playback.

Don’t let the 15cm diameter size put you off though: it’s light enough to be portable, and the 3000mAh battery ensures a solid 12 hours of playback. Marsboy comes in black, grey, or orange and is available now from Amazon.

    I just had to comment - I was scared all the items here would be super pricey, but they really aren't!! I love the wireless headphones, and the marsboy speaker, especially, but they are all so fun and I bet anyone would love to get anything here. So many great possible Christmas gifts. What a great giveaway, MakeUseOf team. Really brilliant. <3
