If your friends and family are still asking you what you want for Christmas, then make it easy on yourself and send them this link – some top suggestions ready for you to open on the 25th.
Everyone needs a little help with it comes to finishing up the Christmas shopping, so herewith some recommendations – not for the cousins, not for the kids, but just for you.
We’ve featured the founder of this personalised gift company on the site and have tested out his product. Ours probably focused a little more on savoury than sweet, which was fine with us – the craft beer was delicious, as were the snacks like salami chips and chicken salt fries (my Aussie friend was particularly delighted to see the latter featured). You can rely on them picking your box for you, or go bespoke.
Okay, so the end product from these might end up being sampled by your kids rather than you, but if it saves you the hassle of trying to fit three pancakes into a frying pan of a weekend, then it’s totally worth it. Such was the case with us when we tested it out. The waffles were cooked quickly and looked amazing – we felt like we were serving breakfast in a restaurant.
We’ve been lucky enough to try out one of these fantastic watches, which combine top functionality with a great look. It’s got all the things you would want from a fitness watch – GPS, sleep measurements, heart rate monitoring and much more, but still looks like a timepiece you could wear even if you didn’t want to know how many steps you’ve been doing. The battery is enduring and you can get messages and music on it too.
This small company does this simply, sustainably and organically and their stuff looks great too. If you’re someone who likes a spa day, or is worried that 2021 has really taken itself out on your skin, then this spa kit is for you. Plus, it’s all vegan and the pots are bio-compostable – no single-use plastic! Beard oil (which we’ve found works really well on stubble too), balm galore and there’s some bath salts in there to soothe your aching bones (don’t pretend they don’t hurt).
