FEATURE: Christmas Stocking Fillers 2021 #5


One final push

No, not to finally get that baby out, but to help one and all with last-minute present buying. With Christmas Day just around the corner, we take another look at a random assortment of cool things to bestow upon those most loved in your life. Including yourself. Because you deserve a present, too. You sexy beast.


Mega Construx Celebration Pikachu


Did you know Pokémon is 25 years old? As people who were already too old for it when it first came out, this makes us feel a thousand years old. Still, younger construction kit fans will revel in joining Pikachu in celebration with this set from Mega Construx. Build you own Pikuchu with the included 280 parts, posing him is various celebratory positions, complete with party hat and presents. We always love a good building set at Christmas, so this will delight Pokémon fans of all ages.

Educational Insight Circuit Explorer Rocket


Another construction set, but one with added STEAM. This build-your-own space set from Educational Insights is powered by batteries and introduces kids to the concept of connected circuitry. They either follow the instructions, or go 'off book' to build their own space vehicle, carefully matching up the symbols on the parts to complete a circuit. When they do, the rocket will light up. Simple as. Once done, kids can essentially do as they please with a rugged and customisable play set, but the principle of the circuit will have been learnt. Nicely done. Fun, educational and very versatile.

£33.60

Echor End of Day Candle


With the stresses of Christmas piling upon us, why not gift a friend something that will help them unwind come night-time? The Echor Sleep range features a wealth of snoozy goodness, designed to help us drift off after a busy day. We were sent End of Day Candle and were very glad of it. Containing blended sweet orange, ylang ylang and lavender oils, it will help you gently drift off to the Land of Nod with no bother at all. Despite the calming and therapeutic properties, this candle also smells great for daily use around the house, and we loved firing it up. Check out their full range.

Candles for Chaps Scent of Power Candle

Splashing in at the other end of the scented candle spectrum (it exists) is this beefy number from Candles for Chaps. Resplendent in a small paint tin, this candle has been designed to wake you the eff up, pussy, with an aroma that will cast your mind back to the barber shops and gentlemen's clubs of old, inspiring power and aspiration via sandalwood, oak and a dash of tobacco. This is what men smell like, so get one for a man in your life. Come Christmas morning, open it, light it, hold it under the chap in question's nose, and scream 'This! This is man! Breath deeply, you worthless shit!' Then retreat.

But yeah. Smells nice.
