Gifts for Geeks

Rubiks Cube Light (£24.99)
This is my second favourite item in this section. The pictures just do not do it justice.

When fully charged it will provide two hours of illuminated playing time, and when not in use can be mounted on a triangular base. It can be charged via USB cable (included). This is a must have gift for any Rubik's fan or for anyone looking for a unique and special gift.
These items are ideal stocking fillers for all ages!
