Christmas might have come and gone, but that doesn't mean you can't treat yourself to something special to beat the January blues...
Proscenic 850T Robot Vacuum Cleaner
Did our homes always have a smattering of lint and dust on the floor, or are we just noticing it more now we are spending so much time indoors?
If you feel like you could win a gold medal at the vacuuming Olympics, this gadget might be the best investment you ever made... in your free time and sanity!
This robot vacuum has a built in system that lets it learn the patterns of your home, meaning that it eventually reaches every area that it can access for an efficient and effective clean.
Equipped with high quality brushless motor with 3000 PA suction, the 850T effortlessly collects dust, pet hairs and dirt.
Plus its low height of 2.8" means it can get underneath furniture that normal vacuums can't reach without hauling heavy furniture around.
It's definitely not the cheapest on the market, but can you put a price on freeing up time for yourself.. when you should be hoovering?

With the country in the grip of a pandemic, it's never been more important to focus on getting fit and healthy... or harder to do it.
With gym closures, restrictions on our outside time, home schooling and child care pressures, not to mention the chilly weather, staying active can seem like an impossible dream.
That's why a home exercise bike from Echelon is an ideal solution. It has hundreds of live and on-demand spin-style classes to get your heart rate up.
The classes, accessed through an app on your own tablet or phone, are classes suitable for all fitness levels, meaning the whole family can make the most of having it at home.
At £1,199 the Echelon Connect EX-3 is definitely an investment, but with uncertainty about when this lockdown will end - and if there will be another further down the line - it might be a canny choice.
For those keen to turn a corner of their home in to a spin studio, there are payment plans to spread the cost. Plus, you can get £100 off if ordered before the end of January.
Where to buy: Echelon, £1,199
