Here are some great gift ideas for those celebrating a special occasion during the winter months. You don’t even need to leave the warmth of your house to pick up these gems!

Enjoy the outdoors

Although it’s cold, it’s still possible to enjoy the outdoors if you’re wrapped up well. For those willing to brave the elements, how about a Merino Scarf, Headphone Beanie or Touchscreen Gloves? Sports equipment and accessories also make great gifts for active winter sports bunnies.

Warm up with a hot bath

There’s nothing better than soaking in a hot bath when it’s cold. If you’re a fan of Friends you’ll know that women aren’t the only ones who enjoy it (Episode 13, Season 8, The One Where Chandler Takes a Bath). Great gifts for bath soakers include a bath caddy with a few nibbles, bath bombs, scented bath oil or bubbles. You could even give them a head massager for the complete relaxation experience.

     

Warm up from the inside out

A nice drink can really hit the spot on a chilly day. The Power-Up Travel Mug and Eco Cup keeps drinks hot and hands warm, while the Wine Aerator will enable them to enjoy a smooth glass of red wine without the wait. If it’s a dram of whisky they prefer, Whisky Stones will chill their drink without diluting the perfectly balanced flavours.

Comfort cooking

There's nothing quite like the delicious smell of cooking to warm the house. Budding MasterChefs will love receiving new gizmos for their cooking tool kits. The Deluxe Decorating Pen, Homemade Cookie Stamper and Matryoshka Kitchen Timer make great gifts for bakers. Or if they have a taste for cheese, there’s the Beginner Italian Cheeses Kit or the more advanced Artisan’s One Day Cheese Kit.

Bring on the games

Winter is the perfect time for playing indoor games and quizzes. They make a great gift for families and can be a thoughtful thank you present for a host. We’ve got lots of games and quizzes to choose from, such as, Hypertheticals, After Dinner Quiz Collection, Amazing but True Sports Quiz Game, Rorshock and Chalk Chess. And for the kids there’s Jacks, Pick Up Sticks, Animal Memory Game, Tabletop Football and Dominoes. So you’re sure to find something just right for your lucky gift recipient.

         

Entertaining at home

Having friends around for drinks and nibbles is a cheap and warm way to socialise during winter. So for the entertainer the Puzzleboard, Record Placemats, Tasting Board, Record Coasters, or Tapas Board is always a winner.

Get cosy

On a cold winters night there is nothing like snuggling up with a loved one roasting marshmallows on the... heatpump. Yeah nah, it’s not quite the same. So how about the Fondue for Two? The tealight fondue is a fun gift that’s made for sharing.

If your special someone enjoys catching up on TV shows and films over winter, they’ll no doubt appreciate a cosy mohair throw to snuggle under on the couch.

Travel accessories for winter getaways

How about travel accessories for those planning to escape the cold weather? A funky passport sleeve, handy travel scale, fancy luggage tag, travel journal or even a portable tripod for taking snaps make great gifts for travellers.
