Swan Teasmade

On these cold, dark winter mornings, it isn't easy to drag yourself out of bed, but perhaps getting up would be made easier with a cuppa first thing from the Swan Teasmade.

Teasmades were hugely popular in the 1960s and 1970s, but fell out of favour and production. The Swan company brought them back into production a few years ago and now own the trademark teasmade. This model combines a retro shape with modern features such as a backlit LCD clock. You can also make coffee in this machine, which might upset the purists, but may make the machine more useful.

It costs just under £45 from Lakeside.
