Christmas in July 2018!

Tuesday, 17 July 2018



Yes it's that time of year again, where I bring you some festive ideas in the middle of Summer! If you are anything like me you will already be planning things for Christmas, organisation is key I say!

Here are a mixture of some things I have bought previously and some that are on wish lists this year.

I hope they inspire you!

Track days driving experience



 
Do you know someone that would like to feel like James Bond for a few hours? How does driving an Aston Martin V8 Vantage sound?

Why not make their Christmas extra special with a Track Days experience! They can visit one of 9 UK venues and feel the power as they put their foot to the floor in this thrilling driving experience!





With plenty of cars and bikes to choose from as well as some Junior experiences, anyone who loves driving would be thrilled to receive a gift from Track days this Christmas.

I bought this for my Dad last year and he absolutely loved it! This particular experience is also an absolute bargain, currently reduced from £99 to just £39! Why not take advantage of the offer now? Gifts are valid for 10 months from date of purchase so plenty of time to book.

A smart new suit



Right at the top of my Husbands wish list is this lovely Dobells Sharkskin suit.

This tailored fit grey sharkskin suit features a single-breasted jacket and two-button front fastening.

The suit trousers are lined to the knee, with a button waist, slanted hip pockets, belt loops and buttoned back pockets.

Available in chest sizes 34 to 48, waist 28 to 36 and short, regular or long length leg, priced at £99.99 with the option of adding a suit bag for £2.99, he will be very pleased if Santa leaves this under the tree this year!

Cosy hats!



Everyone loves a nice cosy hat for winter right? Well look no further, I have my Mum sorted with the beautiful Buffwear beige knitted hat. With a stylish knitted look, fleece lining and pompom too, this one size hat will definitely go down well on the big day.

While I was browsing, I couldn't resist this
Lena blush hat for Liv. Suitable for age 4-12 years, in a beautiful blush pink with Love applied to the front, this hat also has a full fleece lining for extra warmth on those cold Winter days.

For the music lover!



How about a Sennheiser Ambeo Smart Headset?

As you would expect from the brand name, these are a high-quality pair of in-ear headphones, providing the exceptional sound quality you expect from Sennheiser, as well as ultimate comfort thanks to a special ear hook design. The built-in microphone lets you take and make calls too.
                     
Unlike other headphones the Ambeo smart headset is the world’s first intuitive, compact, and mobile 3D sound recording headset.

Its earpieces are fitted with omnidirectional microphones that capture the sounds in your environment just like your ears do. With the Smart Slider you can adjust the mic sensitivity to normal or loud, i.e. concert, environments. This results in a stunningly three-dimensional and immersive sound experience, which can be enjoyed with any headphones on any stereo-capable device, allowing the listener to experience audio as if they were actually there.

The earpieces possess a unique feature called Situational Awareness. Using the rocker switch, you can either make the outside noise heard, allowing you to stay safe when you are on the street, or you can deploy the active noise cancellation, blocking out your environment to enjoy your music undisturbed.

The all important drinks!


Franklin & Sons have partnered with Portobello road gin to launch G & T in a can! Perfect for those unexpected guests over the festive season.

 

For the visitors that are driving how about some grown up soft drinks? Franklin & Sons have some wonderful flavours sure to tickle your guests taste buds. My favourite is Wild Strawberry & Raspberry with cracked black pepper while my Husbands is the traditional dandelion & Burdock, check out the full range online.

I hope I have brought you some gift inspiration this Christmas in July!
