Mothers Day is just around the corner, and if one of your gift recipients is both interested in the latest tech and is a foodie then Roccbox may be the perfect gift for them.

Roccbox achieved cult-like status in the UK after a particularly popular Indigogo campaign.


It is the world’s first portable, stone baked oven that cooks the perfect pizza in 60 seconds, revolutionising home cooking and entertaining. No other portable oven manages to get to 500 degrees, retaining heat so efficiently with 86% heat retention.

What’s in the box?

Includes: One super insulated stainless steel oven with real stone floor, a gas burner, regulator, wood burner, pizza peel, hopper tool or bottle opener and instructions.



High temperature
cooking at home

Truly great pizza requires temperatures that conventional ovens can’t reach. Roccbox reaches 500ºC to give you the ideal balance of thin, crisp base and a perfectly, pillowy crust with beautiful leopard spotting from the charring.

babocush – is a comfort cushion that relieves gas, colic & reflux and reduces flat head syndrome

babocush is an award-winning cushion that safely soothes newborns. It recreates the atmosphere in the womb with a heartbeat sound and gentle vibration, the next best thing to being held in a mother’s arms.

Created by a mum who understands personally the challenge of looking after other children, whilst trying to settle an uncomfortable baby, Kerry Nevins, mum of two, has taken the market by storm with her innovative creation. Parents worldwide are raving about the unique design and features, which allow babies to relax, cry less and settle easily. The vibration has proven especially helpful for babies who need to be constantly held and those with reflux, colic and gas.

With tummy time recommended as vital in a baby’s daily routine, babocush is a smart ‘tummy time’ concept. It can help prevent flat head syndrome and strengthen the baby’s neck, back and trunk whilst holding them in a very natural position, allowing airways to relax and stay open as opposed to sitting slumped over in a bouncer or car seat.

What the experts say….

Deirdre Brady, CEO Tinylife

We know that premature babies are prone to reflux and colic. Parents who have used the babocush have told us that their babies responded well to being placed on it as it can help relieve symptoms of reflux and colic.

Dr. Zara Valentine, Osteopah

The best way to encourage optimal development of your baby’s spine and future postural alignment is to give them plenty of tummy time. The babocush offers a calming and safe place for your baby to lie on their tummy. I love recommending the babocush to my young patients to help with their development, colic and reflux. As a mum of premature twins, I wish the babocush had been available when they were babies!

Thumbs Up was founded in 2004 after realising a gap in the gifting sector. With the market saturated with bland and similar gifts. Thumbs Up decided to create products which would inspire, innovate and revolutionise the gifting sector. Thumbs Up’s quirky gifts proved very popular, with whole ranges selling out in record time. This demand continued, with large retailers wanting exclusive products and ranges all to themselves, knowing that Thumbs Up products get attention in their stores and most importantly sell.

This rapid and sustained growth led to Thumbs Up scaling up to meet the growing demand, whilst being approached by numerous brands to create OEM products, which are seen in many stores, theme parks, museums and airlines.

It is that constant commitment to development, mixed with a strong ethos to give retailers what they want, at a competitive price, which sells in great volume that has seen Thumbs Up take the UK and international markets by storm.

Thumbs Up are quite simply great at building brands through retail partners, alongside being fully in-sync with the ever-changing consumer appetite.

With major new licensing deals expected the continued growth and development of their in-house brands, their achievements will continue to redefine the gifting sector. Their approach puts quality, honesty and integrity at the forefront of everything they do, which focuses on forging long lasting relationships. These are just some of the reasons why the team at Thumbs Up are successful.

Another revenue stream Thumbs Up are focused on increasing is licensing. Both in the UK and USA. After strong growth in sales of their licences; including Pusheen and Original Stormtrooper. Thumbs Up are aiming to partner with more major licences in the future, having recently signed a US and UK deal with Warner Bros including Harry Potter and DC brands. With a strong network of retailers snapping up Thumbs Up products and their ranges it’s a great opportunity for licensors to collaborate and increase profits with Thumbs Up. “We’ve proved that our products sell, and if we mix a licence with our designs it can only do well.” Says MD Charlie.

AfterShokz chases performance with new Trekz Air

wireless bone conduction headphones

The ultimate headphones for athletes will change the way they listen.

AfterShokz, the bone conduction headphone brand known for prioritising situational awareness and comfort through its unique open ear design, today announced its next generation of wireless bone conduction headphones, Trekz Air. Trekz Air are the ultimate sport headphones inspired by the demands of elite and aspiring athletes. These new wireless headphones wrap powerful features in a functional, flexible and featherweight design, ignoring the limits set by traditional sport headphones.

“Building on our Trekz product line was a natural next step for AfterShokz after the incredible success we’ve had with our first Trekz model, Trekz Titanium,” said Kim Fassetta, CMO of AfterShokz. “Our team spent a lot of time perfecting the overall design and functionality of Trekz Air, improving on every aspect of the headphones from the fit to the sound.”

Designed to withstand the rigorous training of elite athletes, Trekz Air are 20% lighter than Trekz Titanium, weighing in at just 1.04oz. This is possible based on its full titanium wraparound that provides infinite flexibility, a secure fit and the ultimate level of comfort.

Trekz Air features:

  • Full titanium frame and wraparound band: The backbone of the industrial design is a premium titanium frame and wraparound band, an element chosen not only for its strength and durability, but also for its infinite flexibility, which will deliver maximum comfort, portability and universal fit.
  • OpenFit™ design: Promising uncompromised situational awareness and extended comfort in a revolutionary open ear design. That means you can tune in to your music or a call without tuning out the world around you — vital for staying safe and alert as you move through the day.
  • PremiumPitch+ sound: Bone conduction audio has earned its bad reputation due to a blend of natural sound leakage and weak bass. PremiumPitch+™ technology optimises the sound and includes additional features like LeakSlayer™ technology, which eliminates sound leakage almost entirely.
  • Sweat resistant: Built to power through daily sweat sessions and wicked weather. IP55 rated to repel sweat, moisture and dust.
  • Six hours of music and calls: A single charge will reliably deliver at least six hours of music play and talk time. You can charge fully in 1.5 hours, but a quick 15-minute charge provides enough boost to get you through a long workout or marathon call.
  • Dual noise canceling mics: Precisely placed dual noise canceling microphones exclude surrounding noise, effectively enhancing speech for crystal clear calls.
  • Voice prompts: Audrey Says™ seamlessly guide you through power, pair, play and talk, and everything in between.

Notable improvements over the previous model, Trekz Titanium:

  • Reduced sound leakage
  • Improved dual noise canceling mics
  • New antenna for improved Bluetooth connection
  • Resigned bone conduction transducers deliver more bass

Trekz Air uses bone conduction technology to transmit audio waves to the inner ears through the skull, bypassing the eardrums completely. Place them on your cheekbones, just in front of your ears. This leaves your ear canals open, allowing you to remain alert and aware of ambient sounds, teammates, coaches, training partners and more while you enjoy your music. Bluetooth® connectivity gives you the ability to be free of wires and make and receive phone calls. 

Trekz Air are available in four of the season’s hottest colours: Midnight Blue, Forest Green, Slate Gray and Sunset Pink.
