FEATURE: Christmas Gift Guide 2020 #6

One last push

Come on, then. With just a few vital shopping days until the big day, we're squeezing in another, final gift guide. Just like 2020 itself, this final guide is a mixed bag for sure, and will hopefully offer some last-minute inspiration for that tricky-to-buy-for person. Merry Christmas.


Yuletide Gin

What's more Christmassy than booze? Nowt, says we. That's why were VERY happy to sample a bottle of Yuletide Gin from That Boutique-y Gin Company. At 46% proof, this gin is not for those with a delicate composition, but thanks to the blend of 24 different botanicals, it surely is delicious. And, as an added Christmas bonus, edible gold flakes float around inside, so every time you pour it, it's like a golden snow globe. The drunker you get, the more magical it appears. As a unique gift for Christmas time, this is perfect.

Alphagreen CBD Products

As well as Covid-19, for us 202o was the year of press releases about CBD. The industry exploded this year, with many start-ups promising to cure this and enhance that, all thanks to the not-get-you-high part of the cannabis plant. One such company that caught our eye was Alphagreen who stock a range of well-being and performance enhancing products derived from CBD oil. They kindly sent us some massage oil, muscle balm, and even CBD-infused coffee! For budding fitness fans, these are ideal, especially as the health benefits of CBD continue to come to light. Alphagreen stock lots of products, so that friend who is fully into the scene, check it out.

McFarlane Cyberpunk 2077 Action Figures

Smashing it once again, McFarlane return with a line of figures and statuettes from the newly-released Cyberpunk 2077 game. Following tight on the heels of their DC Multiverse range we covered in this previous guide, The Cyberpunk figures are equally as detailed and posable. They kindly sent us seven inch figures of the Keanu Reeves-style Johnny Silverhand, V, and also an imposing statuette of Johnny. The bundled accessories make the figures infinitely playable and posable, while retaining the detail and aesthetic of the actual game. Cyberpunk 2077 will definitely be a big hit this Christmas, so for that special gaming friend, check these out.

Around £20 each

HyperX Cloud Stinger S Gaming Headphones

We all have a gaming friend. Be they the kind that live and breath gaming, of those who enjoy a twiddle of the joysticks on the weekend, we're guessing they'll delight at the sight of a new pair of headphones. HyperX are back with the Cloud Stinger S, a wired pair of 'phones that offer excellent quality and performance at a very competitive price. The on-ear headphones feature a noise-cancelling mic which mutes when flicked upwards, and rich, immersive, virtual 7.1 surround sound. They sound amazing, and the sensitivity of the mic is just so to make your online announcements to your team clear and crisp. And what a great price. These will fit nicely into anyone's socking this Christmas.

Deskmate Mac Riser

After a year of working from home, or not working at all, many of us have re-evaluated our desk setup. One thing we've always been big fans of it raising your computer screen to eye level, to help fight poor posture and sore necks. Deskmate got in touch to introduce us to their range of helpful and ergonomic desk accessories, and we leapt at the Mac Riser. Despite the name, this birch plywood riser can be used with any computer or screen, and helps to raise it by 11cm and offers extra storage beneath. It's an incredibly sturdy bit of wood, which both looks and smells great. No matter how heavy your screen or computer, the Deskmate Mac Riser will keep it up, making it a great gift for those who are working at home or back in the office.
