For the book lover in your life! A cute little find on Etsy, besides the bookstore scented candle, this seller has a huge range of fun and unique soy candles.
The Floor Is LAVA! - The GAME
This is one of my son’s (age 8) absolute favorite games. We have a blast playing as a family. Being able to adjust the difficulty was a good idea and by putting the pieces closer or further apart it is helpful when playing with younger kids or when trying to make it harder.
Something Totally Different BY MoldyCreations
We realize it may not be a perfect gift for your granny, but there is no denying that a handmade gift is always a great idea! Joe Rowles from Moldycreations is a madly talented artist and has been making some utterly disgusting designs and selling though his ETSY shop. From phone cases, to wine glasses, these will shock or delight most people on your list, hopefully both! Check out his designs here

Support your Local Restaurants
More than ever your local restaurants and cafes are feeling squeezed. You can help by giving your family or friends gift cards to support those business owners in your community that may be in need of the extra boost. Besides that, food is always a good gift!
You’ve seen them everywhere. Those wireless Apple earbuds that are on the ears of every commuter and jogger alike. Though we were initially skeptical of how well AirPods actually worked, they turned out to be our favorite wireless earbuds.
Why buy new when you can find some really awesome retro boardgames in your local facebook marketplace? Operation, Trump and Risk are just a few we have come across. Have a quick look and we think you'll find something fun and even obscure. Just look at how much fun the happy asshole above is having...that could be you!
PUGG Lumberjack slippers by POOK
We do love our lumberjack stuff! If you like your UGG boots as much as we do, then you'll love these PUGGS! Pook has been making fun and unique products for years, and this year they came out with a real winner in the PUGGS. Shop for them here.
Weighted Gravity Blanket
Weighted blankets have become increasingly popular because not only are they comfortable, but the extra weight has a calming effect. When we tested some, we found we liked snuggling up with the Gravity Blanket the most. This would be a great gift for anyone who loves cozying up with a warm cup of tea or needs an extra stress reliever in their life.
Retro 80's T-shirts
Everything comes back again... or maybe they just never went out of fashion! Truly though, everyone appreciates a good t-shirt, and 80's Tees has the widest range we have ever seen! Check them out
Beardo® Animal Ski Masks
We can’t help but include our new Animal Ski masks as an awesome Christmas Gift, they are simply too cool! Skiiers and Snowboarders just can’t get enough of them and with 23 fun styles to choose from, there’s a design for everyone!
The favorite design this season is this one by far.
The whole World has some pent up stress right now, and depending on where you are you may not be able to get a massage! A wireless massage gun may be just what you or your loved ones need right now. These range in price from $100-400 and come with a range of functions, but I am sure you'll find one that works well for you. try to relax..
Pie Face! Just look at that happy little psychopath!
We know we mentioned board games above, but this one deserves special mention! It is no longer new, but probably easier to get this year! You're in for a night full of laughs and pie faces with this game. The pie-throwing arm can go off at any minute. Just make sure it's not your turn when it goes off! This is good fun for any age and a good chance for adults to get back at kids in the cutest way possible. You can buy it here
Ancestry DNA Test
If you fancy something a little different this Christmas, why not give someone you know an Ancestry DNA test, which can reveal a person's genetic ethnicity and can even uncover new family connections. The kits cost just over $100 from the Ancestry website. Using a simple saliva sample, the DNA data provides a prediction of the locations of ancestors from 26 separate world-wide populations. Very cool.
