Gadget Shops in the UK


This year I’m trying to do all of my Christmas shopping online (I hate queues) and as I’m a bit of a gadget fiend I thought it would be cool idea to get all my family and friend gadgets of some sort. I just spent the last couple of hours looking at what gadget shops there are in the UK and I am absolutely amazed that there are that many, so I thought I’d share my list here (over the next few days I’ll do one of these for gadget shops in the USA).

Firebox Firebox

Probably the most well known online gadget store in the UK, I’ve lost count of how many times I’ve abused by credit card there.

I want One Of Those
Another very popular UK site absolutely jam packed with gadgets, if there isn’t a gadget that you want there you’re probably reading this site by mistake.

Paramount Zone

They quote them selfs as “The Number 1 Site For Gift Ideas, Gadgets, Boy’s Toys & Cool Gifts.” though I’m not sure if that’s entirely unbiased.

Gizoo Gizoo

Formerly “The Gadget Store” Gizoo is a great online gadget supplier (who I particularly like as they sent me a free box of goodies :))

Hawkins Hawkin’s Bazaar

This is a great source for the more obscure gadgets and they are also surprisingly cheap (great gadget stocking fillers).

Alternative Gifts Alternative Gifts

As the name suggests, another cool source for different kinds of presents.


I’ve not tried this one before but it seems to have a lot of familiar toys.

Presents for Men Presents for Men

Another aptly named Gadget store

Spy Catcher Spy Catcher Online

Probably the #1 online Spy shop for UK shoppers

Find me a gift Find Me A Gift

The name says it all

Barmans Barmans

A cool site for all sorts of drinking gadgets

Retro Let’s Go Retro

Not all gadgets have to be shiny and new.

Gadget Stuff Gadget Stuff

Stuffed to the gunnel’s with gadgets

otherland otherland

Gadgets galore, especially toys

Gadget Hub Gadget Hub offers its customers a wide range of high quality and trendy items for the home and the office, as well as gadgets, audio-visual products and table games. FREE delivery is available for all purchases,

Ministry of gadgets Ministry of Gadgets

I’m running out of things to say, it’s another UK gadget store

Crazy about Gadgets

Aren’t we all

Gadget Pages offer a wide selection of the ‘very latest’ gadgets, boys’ toys, gifts, cool stuff and accessories.

I’m still amazed at how many gadget shops there are in the UK, it just goes to show that we are a gadget loving nation. If you are doing a lot of gadget present shopping online it will probably pay to look around as prices do seem to vary.

I’ll be doing a similar guide to US based gadget shops in the next few days (once my mouse hand has recovered).
