Know someone who wants an Amazon Echo Show 8 for Christmas (perhaps it's you)? It's one of those devices that takes the term 'connected home' to the next level. If you're tired of shouting for the kids to come down for dinner or your baby monitor's just not up to scratch, the Echo Show has a special 'Drop in' feature. This allows you to drop into rooms with similar devices, so you can see, hear and chat to people in them, without moving a muscle. 

The good news? It's on sale today for just £59.99 at Very (in black) and Argos (in white).

And as the world is getting smaller, smart tech like this makes having friends and family living on the other side of the world, or even across the country, a little easier. You can ask your Echo Show to video call, with the larger 8in screen creating a better view, so you can feel like you're really with them (well, sort of). And all this for under £60?!

And if that's not enough, you can also listen to music, display photo albums, read, and ask Alexa about the news, weather and traffic before you head out. Once you've got one, you'll wonder how you ever functioned without it. And now with this crazy early Boxing Day sales deal at Very and Argos, you can get it for half the price!
