Struggling with making a decision as to what to buy everyone for the festive season this year? Then this news may be enough to help, especially if the person you are buying for is an Apple fan. The Gadget Show has compiled a list of 5 of the best Apple accessories money can buy this Christmas. The list ranges from headphones to keyboard docks and caters for each of the iOS devices which are the iPod, iPhone and iPad as well as the iMac and MacBooks.

First up they recommend the Apple Magic Mouse, a smart little accessory designed for the iMacs or MacBooks which allows users to scroll through pages using the touchscreen interface and without having to actually move the mouse. It is essentially a touchscreen version of a regular mouse, an awesome addition to what are already great machines.

Next up they have suggested the iPad 2 Smart Cover. When the Apple tablet was first launched earlier this year the Smart Cover was one of the defining features of the device and when combined they seem to be the perfect match as if one could not be without the other. It magnetically attaches itself to the iPad and neatly covers it, giving it the protection it needs without being too bulky. It folds up neatly and even doubles up as a stand for comfortable viewing and typing.

Next we have the SoundMagic E10, a high quality pair of headphones designed to bring the best sound without being too expensive. They can be used for listening to music on the whole range of the Apple devices as well as other media players. They cost £35 but reportedly do the same job as a pair three times the cost of them.

Another great accessory that the site recommends is the Bowers & Wilkins Zeppelin Air, a high quality iPod or iPhone dock which provides users with great sound as well as being good looking. It even lets you listen to your iTunes Library collection using AirPlay over a Wi-Fi connection.

Last but not least we have the Apple iPad Keyboard dock which is perfect for those who use the iPad for writing a lot or who don’t get on with the touchscreen very well. It docks the tablet upright so it sits in a comfortable viewing position just like on a laptop. It is also a smart looking design with low profile keys and an aluminum finish.
