An old favourite of mine. Mind numbingly odd stuff, but a great laugh. Freeze-dried ice cream that returns to its original state as it rehydrates.

Hygge? What the? Hygge, pronounced hue-gah, is the Danish word for a feeling or mood that comes from taking genuine pleasure in making ordinary, every day things more meaningful, beautiful or special. Not quite sure? This little book will explain more…

Mince pies plus gin, need I say more? This cute gift box includes a 90ml sipping bottle of mince pie gin, and a 50ml mini bottle of Sipsmith London Dry Gin.

Slightly on the pricey side – but worth it! This 70g candle smells of a lush, pine-laden forest, with woody tones of resin, cedar and patchouli – the perfect Christmas scent!

A great gift for your family handyman. A ceramic dishwasher proof mug – suitable for any manual dude.

The ever so popular new game, overtaking pie face and cards against humanity in the popularity race… Stick strange plastic objects in your mouth and say silly phrases. If you’re not sure what I’m on about, YouTube it, hours of fun. However, it’s very hard to get hold of – most retailers are sold out, but you may be in luck on eBay.
