DAB radio choices for Christmas 2012 at a price to suit your pocket

We all know money is tight - so here are some no-nonsense DAB radios you might want to add to your Christmas list or bag for a relative. With the festive season fast approaching, cheap kit usually sells out pretty quickly, so our advice would be not to leave it too late.

If you're looking for a cheap iPod dock, handheld with MP3 player or simply-styled unit to suit your decor, here's a quick rundown on some of the radios we've spotted.
