From the January 2023 issue of E&T: gadget gifts for everyone from adventurers to oenophiles, tech to tackle everything from teeth to truffles.

A slender, sonic toothbrush with a plant-based head and repairable aluminium body, designed to be recycled at the end of its life.

JLab Go Air Tones
JLab’s bestselling, affordable Bluetooth earbuds now in a gorgeous range of seven skin tones, perfect for anyone who likes their headphones to be discreet. Specs are good for budget earbuds too: 8+ hours of battery life, 32+ hours including case, and the case has a built-in USB cable.
Rocketbook Panda Planner
Teamed with a Pilot FriXion pen, you can wash off and reuse the synthetic paper pages for decades. Pages include undated month, week and day planners, and goals and motivational templates. Take a snap in the companion app to keep your notes in the cloud forever. Perfect for 2023 and far beyond.
From £36.99 getrocketbook.co.uk
Microplane Truffle Tool
The newest Microplane is designed for truffles, hard cheeses, garlic, strawberries, radishes and more. As well as a photo-etched grater, there’s an adjustable slicer that works like a mini chef’s mandoline, to cut precise slices. With a non-slip rubber foot and elegant walnut handle, it’s the perfect gift for foodies.
LifeStraw Peak Straw
Smaller than ever and very affordable, this is something you pop in your outdoors rucksack for emergencies. When things go bad, you can drink safely from puddles and ponds with impunity. Its filters protect against bacteria, parasites, microplastics, silt, sand and cloudiness. And for every LifeStraw sold, a child in need receives access to safe water for a year.
Coravin Timeless Model 6+ Gemstone Collection
Bright, limited edition colours and a special pre-Christmas price for the ultimate gift for oenophiles. The medic-designed gadget uses a thin needle to pierce the wine cork and retrieve your tipple. Then it injects inert argon, instead of air, and the cork seals itself – so the remaining plonk lasts for years.
From £199.99 coravin.co.uk
