So Christmas is just around the corner, and we have been sharing lots of ideas for children’s Christmas gifts, but what about the adults in your life, or even pets? Here are a few great ideas to bring happiness and joy to all of the loved ones in your life this festive season.
A new Coat or Jacket
With the cold weather here for winter, a new coat or jacket is a great gift idea and Mainline menswear have a wide range for men including this Levis Denim Sherpa Trucker Jacket, which is available for £120. They also have many other popular menswear brands like Versace, Timberland, Barbour and lots more.
Lynx body spray sets are a classic gift, and something that’s always practical. This year, why not try the Body Spray & Sock’s collection set which is ideal for the guy who likes to be organised for the working week, with five pairs of Lynx socks and five matching body sprays including iconic Lynx scents from the ages.

For the gamer in your life, or for a lover of nostalgia, the Orb Retro Gaming Console from Urban Outfitters makes a fun gift idea. It will take them right back to childhood, and features a 2.2-inch LCD screen with built-in speakers. The cool console includes an amazing 200 8-bit games for nostalgia-inspired fun!
Solid Cologne is a solid wax-based cologne or aftershave. It is made with natural wax and skin friendly cologne, which is applied directly on to the skin. Solid Cologne was created for those who travel. It’s made from bees wax and it doesn’t need to be put into a clear bag whilst going through airport security. This means it’s impossible to spill and you won’t use as much as only a little wax will go a long way in keeping you smelling great.
The cologne comes in a small tin, which fits perfectly inside a pocket or bag. All the colognes have the highest quality of natural ingredients including Beeswax, Shea butter & Jojoba oil. which all support and protect the skin.
The concentrated wax fragrances are portable, natural and moisturising. It’s easy to apply and hand. Discreetly packaged the application is fast and easy. Whip it out in the office, on the bus or in a crowded club/bar and smell amazing instantly.
The scents are subtle but refreshing. The blend of various notes within the solid colognes will stay on the skin which allows the fragrance to evolve throughout the day while interacting with your body temperature.
The Solid Cologne Alexander is a sweet, rich and sophisticated scent. The cologne begins with fresh grapefruit, leading to the heart of aromatic bay leaf and jasmine. The woody base includes patchouli, oak moss and ambergris. A truly unforgettable cologne.
Alexander costs £17.99 from Solidcologne.co.uk
Sensica have a range of skincare gadgets that cover anti-aging, cellulite reduction, and laser hair removal. Giving someone you love spa treatments from home – perfect for a luxury gift, especially this year when we have had so many salon closures so the option to treat yourself at home becomes even more valuable.
How about this Sensilight Pro premium kit, available for 349. Laser hair removal gives you the gift of permanently soft and hair free skin with no more shaving or waxing – sounds great to me.

VASO Glass straws
Glass straws are a brilliant idea for any eco conscious friends and family members. As we all know, plastic straws cause a lot of waste and are best avoided, whereas paper straws quickly get soggy and aren’t always pleasant to drink out of so glass is the perfect alternative. VASO’s range of premium glass straws offer consumers a reusable, sustainable and recyclable product (and packaging) that delivers a 100% pure taste as they are free from plastics, toxins, mineral oils and BPA.
The straws are an extremely high quality product, engineered in Germany from toughened glass. They also have a range of bamboo travel cases that have been specifically designed for their straws. Further details are available on their web site: https://glassstraw.co.uk

This is an ideal gift for tea drinkers or those who love a mug of coffee. Add your favourite hot drinks and watch this mug morph right before your eyes! Made with thermographic inks the mug reacts to heat, revealing new and fun graphics. As your beverage cools, the graphics change back to their original state, telling you it is time to refresh your cup!
