You can also register your new gifts for free on the Immobilise online database at: www.immobilise.com. Immobilise helps police to identify the owners of recovered property and simplifies insurance claims.
But if the worst happens and you are separated from your gadget, you can report it as lost at www.reportmyloss.com, for free in the Avon and Somerset Police force area, or as stolen by filling in our online crime and incident form.
