Editor's Note: I've a long list of gear that would enhance my life but at the moment, it's the simple things that count because we're expecting another child in June and that means buying things that help keep the house cleaner.

We also should think about acquiring things that are durable enough to be dropped in a backpack because a lot of our personal handheld devices end up in the hands of young children who have learned to tap and do things. The image accompanying this post is a typical shot that I could take at any restaurant. My daughter toggles between colouring pages in my Moleskine and using favourite applications on my iPod Touch.
