Best James Bond gifts and gadgets: Master Lock Bluetooth Smart Padlock

Wouldn't it be great to be able to do away with keys for good, and use your smartphone as your key? The Master Lock Bluetooth Smart Padlock offers just that, boasting the ability to be unlocked via the Master Lock eLock app available for iOS and Android. From the app, you can allow fellow spies access your padlock, although rules can be set that can restrict access on certain days, between certain times, etc. and even if your phone battery dies, you can always input the backup code via the built-in directional keypad. 

While some may be weary about the inclusion of Bluetooth technology, Master Lock claims its smart padlocks feature "military-grade authentication and encryption" which should ensure that only the people you grant access to, can unlock the lock - perfect for hiding those top secret classified files. While the standard version can only be used indoors, Master Lock also released a waterproof variation to be used in the great outdoors.

Price: from £69 and £89 respectively

Best James Bond gifts and gadgets: Olloclip

iPhone cameras, such as on the 6S and 6S Plus, are some of the best around, but in certain circumstances - say photographing nuclear missile plant diagrams while hiding from foreign embassy staff - you might need a little help. Olloclip is an ingenious range of attachable lenses that slide onto your handset and add a variety of specialist capabilities such as Macro, Wide-Angle, and Telephoto. They all fit in your pocket too.

Price: From £59.99

Best James Bond gifts and gadgets: Spy Sunglasses

While Google may well have caught the headlines with Google Glass, spies have been using hidden cameras in their eye-wear for years. Now, with these Spy sunglasses, you can use the 5MP camera to record 1080p HD video for up to 150 minutes, or take photographs, all while sipping your Pina Colada at the beach.

Best James Bond gifts and gadgets: HoloLens

Gadgets are meant to be futuristic, and Microsoft is certainly doing that with its new HoloLens creation. This clever visor overlays virtual worlds on top of your surroundings and allows you to interact with them in a frighteningly realistic manner. So far it’s only at the developer stage, but Never Say Never….

Price: Classified (or $3000 to developers)

Best James Bond gifts and gadgets: Wi-Fi coffee machine

We're yet to be convinced there's a need for a coffee machine you can control from your phone, but it's certainly something Bond would use. The Smarter SMC10 has a built-in hopper for your coffee beans and a burr grinder you can adjust for the taste you like. It then produces filter coffee - up to 12 cups - to the strength you require. Via the app you can choose how many cups of coffee to brew, and sensor shows the maximum based on the remaining water in the reservoir. It comes with beige and red panels so you can change the black ones if they suit your decor better.

Price: £179.99 from Amazon
