The search for a great present gets more frustrating
Before you dismiss all this spy gear as big boys' toys: this stuff is for real. It actually works. What could be cooler, for the person who has everything, than a genuine motion activated spy camera? If you're looking to think original in the gift buying stakes, it doesn't get much better than this.
Anyone who has ever watched a Bond movie and thought how cool it would be to have secret agent stuff that really works is going to be very happy once they've torn the wrapping paper off your intriguingly shaped box. They see the words 'spy cam' and a first they're not really sure what to make of it - and then you point out that this is real spy equipment. Their eyes light up. This is something a bit cooler than your average last minute gift.
The spy watch is a perfect example. You can buy genuine, working waterproof watches in all sorts of finishes and price ranges, which incorporate a camera, a movie camera and a voice recorder. Pick from HD or DVR and then watch what you're doing around the recipient of your gift - unless you want a mini spy cam recording you every time you pick your nose!Of course the spy camera traditionally takes on all sorts of forms: a clock, a packet of matches, a cigarette lighter.
Fans of the secret agent will be delighted to learn that they can buy working movie and still cameras in all sorts of incarnations: the spy watch, the spy pen, sunglasses, a lighter, even a packet of chewing gum. Clandestine recording was never easier - or more fun.
There's even a range of spy equipment designed to do genuine surveillance: perfect for those awkward domestic situations you never know how to broach. Suspect your cleaner might be dusting off more than just ornaments? Install a spy cam in the room and you can record his or her activities without once broaching the subject.
And if you have a child who might be helping himself or herself to a little pocket money every now and then: your spy camera can help you avoid having an unpleasant conversation unless you really have to.
From fun to functional, you'll never need to wonder what to get them again.
