It's officially Left Handers Day on August 13, so if you think left is right, these great gadgets will suit, writes POLLY WEEKS LEFT-HANDED KEYBOARD USB CORDED (PS39.95, from anythinglefthanded.co.uk) IF YOU'RE left-handed, you'll like this computer accessory.

Near to the trigger, you'll find one lock on the left of the power tool and one on the right side - solely to suit those who are left and right-handed. The saw itself is a comfortable hold and comes with two blades which are surprisingly powerful at cutting through wood and metal.

Not only does the Distinta 1.7L digital kettle come with a full swivel base to stop such arguments but you can heat the water depending on the type of tea you want.
