Normally when we go into Primark, we head straight for the homes dept – and usually we come out with a basket full of cute towels, bedlinen and lighting. But we've recently discovered that Primark does tech – and that it's great. So great, in fact, that we're pretty sure it'll be a big hit, come Christmas present buying time (hint: bag it now before the check out queues become MENTAL.

We've listed our favourite finds below, including portable speakers, wireless charing pads and more. Retailing at no more than £12 each, they're super affordable options that we're sure you're going to love. Stocking stuffing sorted.

This Bluetooth Wireless Speaker, £9 (opens in new tab) and Black Wireless Headphones, £12 (opens in new tab) are the Primark buys we've been waiting for. The freedom you can get from ditching wires is fabulous and now, available at Primark prices! It would be rude not to.

See our guide to the best wireless speakers (hint: they're a little bit more expensive than £12). 

2. Primark earphones in a colour of your choice

We love these Dark Blue Earphones, £4 (opens in new tab), because, let's be honest, you need a bit of colour on your headphones to detect them when they go missing and a family member magically has a fresh pair. If you can't relate, you must be the culprit... These are cute and fun and sooo affordable. Plus, they come in blue, pink, white and black. Treat yourself!

3. Take singing in the shower to the next level with a shower speaker

Omg. This Pink Shower Speaker, £9 (opens in new tab), isn't just great for Primark, it's just brilliant full stop. The suction fixer means you can pop this on your shower screen or wall, connect it via Bluetooth to your device and enjoy! The splashproof design means you need not worry about your eccentric dance moves. (Don't dunk it in the bath though.)

4. Venture into the world of wireless charging

There's something seriously futuristic feeling about wireless charging. And thanks to Primark and their £12 Pink Wireless Fast Charger (opens in new tab), the technology is now available to everyone. So, clear your desk and streamline your bedside table with this handy device. Oh, and did we mention it's pink. What's not to love?

5. Get your hands on this FitBit lookalike for just £12

FitBit, step aside (for a moment). We're on a budget and Primark are tempting us with an alternative Fitness Tracker (opens in new tab) for just £12. The sleek silicone band is packed with info, from the date and time to the 3D pedometer and sensor, tracking your steps, distance and calorie intake. With a stop watch and alarm too... who knew Primark could do tech so well?

6. Pink laptop sleeve (looks like a clutch bag)

We love a laptop sleeve – sooo much more 2020 than big old laptop bags. And this one looks more like a clutch than a rucksack, which we're all in favour of. Pink laptop sleeve, £7 (opens in new tab).

7. A Minnie Mouse Powerbank for teens who never answer their phones

Okay, so we can't see boys massively going for this Minnie Mouse Powerbank, £10 (opens in new tab), but for the teens who are always running out of charge while they're out and never letting you know where they are, this is one of those must-have buys.

8. A reindeer phone case (for Christmas)

Oh come on, Reindeer Phone Case for £2 (opens in new tab)? Why wouldn't you just slip that in their stockings and (depending on age), enjoy the squeals of delight or groan that say 'I'm waaay to old for that kind of nonsense'?
