As much as we probably don’t really want to think about Christmas and all it entails, time really is marching on. Waking up on December 25th, knowing that you’ve likely got a full day of ‘festivities’ to endure, is one thing but waking up to find nothing except socks and Lynx shower gel beneath the tree …. well, that’s just too much. Hopefully, the Bear Bones festive gift guide can help – it’s crammed full of gift ideas for that very special someone.
Print it off, maybe put a tick next to those items you fancy and tape it to the TV remote or fridge door. Remember, using this list is in no way a selfish act, in fact you’ll be able to argue that it’s just the opposite and by making sure you get something you want … they won’t have their Christmas ruined by you moping round the house. It’s the very definition of win – win.
1/ Hard day slogging through bogs, wading through rivers and pushing your bike up mountainsides? Feel the need to slip into something more comfortable? The Nordisk Mos down shoe, could be just the thing for those cosy bothy evenings. They feature down insulation, a smashing fluffy fleece lining and a reinforced sole to cope with those rough stone floors. A large pair weighs 185g and at less than £25 they won’t break the bank … available in various colours from retailers across the Internet.
2/ Stick 4 fingers up to winter and wave goodbye to cold, wet hands (and one finger braking) with a pair of Planet X Crab Hand gloves. Not only are they waterproof, they’re also insulated with a generous helping of Thinsulate. The fingers feature a touch screen friendly coating and there’s a dash of reflective detail for those night-time excursions. £14.99 and available from On-One
