More stuffs

Back again with random gift ideas for the festive period, this time with a nod toward consumables. Be it a cheeky bev, or a way to keep you coffee warm in the winter weather, we've got you covered.


Shandy Shack


First in with something very festive... booze. The Shandy Shack claim to be bringing the humble shandy back by combining it with various interesting flavours and brewing techniques. We were sent a selection to try, including an Elderflower lager top and a delicious ginger. The company was founded by a group of friends who include a couple of doctors, interestingly, so it seems drinking this Christmas is exactly what the doctor ordered.

Contigo Luxe Autoseal Travel Mug


Be it wondering around a Christmas market, or on the busy commute to work, your hot drink will need protecting from the elements this winter. Contigo suggested we try their new Luxe mug, that not only keeps hot things hot for up to five hours, but also features a leak-proof seal to keep all the fluids where they should. The Luxe Autoseal comes in a range of metallic finishes, and feels sturdy enough to last you quite a few winters.

£24.95 from www.amazon.co.uk


Inside Out Drinks


Christmas can be a time when we all regret what we drank the night before. If hangovers really ruin you festivities, turn yourself Inside Out. This nutrient-packed juice drink has been formulated to help with post-pissed recoveries, aiding your body quickly get over a hangover. Designed to be consumed BEFORE you go out on the lash, the blend of cranberries, goji, and hibiscus will fortify your liver prior to the pounding. Even if you're not drinking, this is a healthy, low-calorie, and great tasting fruit drink.

Paddy & Scott's Christmas Coffee and Tea Gift Hamper


Here's something good to go in your new travel mug from above... a whole load of delicious coffee and tea. Paddy & Scott make interesting brews that compliment different occasions, and this hamper is jam-packed with such colourful examples. For coffee lovers there are bags of ground beans called Wakey Wakey, Easy Days, and Chit Chat, as well as some Tea Pig teabags in a host of flavours. You also get some unique coffee bags, which work just like teabags, but produce rich and flavoursome coffee. Definitely worth a punt.

£31.99 from paddyandscotts.shop


WAKEcup Personalised Travel Mug


For an altogether more natural travel mug, consider this unique thing from WAKEcup... and make it even more unique. This bamboo-sided vacuum mug not only looks interesting in a sea of metal-lined mugs and bottles, but you can also get it engraved with a name or message of your choice. Useable as both a 'around the home/office' cup, or as a dedicated 'out and about' travel mag, complete with sealing lid, we think this will make an amazing present for the coffee or tea drinker in your life.
