CleanCo Gin – Alcohol Free Gin

CleanCo’s Clean G makes a tasty and thoughtful gift for the people in your life who enjoy a good G&T, but would rather not have to deal with the hangover the next morning! Whether you’re shopping for sober friends or pregnant pals, this Clean G alcohol free gin is one of the best 0% alcohol alternatives I’ve tried. Don’t feel you have to take just my word for it though, CleanCo has recently won some impressive awards, including Great Taste and IWSC. If gin isn’t what you’re after, the non-alcoholic range of CleanCo also covers: Clean T (Tequila), Clean G Rhubarb (Rhubarb Gin), Clean R (Rum), Clean V (Vodka), and Clean W (Whiskey). So, if you’re after a little non-alcoholic tipple that doesn’t sacrifice on flavour or aroma, I’d definitely recommend giving Clean G a go!

The Genius Star – The Happy Puzzle Company

Puzzle lovers will absolutely adore The Genius Star from The Happy Puzzle Company; be warned though, this one’s a toughy!

There are 165,888 possible puzzles to solve and, despite the game seeming impossible at some points, there is always at least 1 solution. The Genius Star can be played solo or with others making it a great Christmas addition to family game’s night, or as a present for someone who loves a challenge.

Not only that, but there’s also a twist to each challenge called ‘The Golden Star’ which makes for some nerve-wracking game play. The Happy Puzzle Company have definitely got you covered if you’re searching for Christmas gifts that require some good old fashioned problem solving and critical thinking!

Try A New Sport – Badminton

For the sporting enthusiast in your life, why not gift them with the opportunity to try something a little bit different come the new year? Badminton is a fast-paced sport that requires quick reactions and strong athletic ability. Moreover, it is considered to be an easy sport to learn, but one takes time and dedication to master. Because of this, it comes as no surprise that over 300 million people play it yearly, from children as young as 3, to seniors aged 75 and above. For beginners, the Babolat Satelite Gravity Racket is the ideal racket to get started with, which makes it the best gifting option for someone looking to expand their sporting horizons this Christmas.
