Last minute Christmas gifts

Posted Tuesday, 19 December 2017   |   367 views   |   Leisure Interest   |   Comments (0) There’s less than a week to go until the big day and if you’re anything like us, you need last minute Christmas gifts – pronto! Whether you need a gift you can give instantly or something special to arrive after the big day, we’ve rounded up the best of the bunch (with a couple of reads from Pocketmags, of course – a great instant gift for someone special to enjoy all year round)!

1. National Geographic Traveller digital magazine subscription, £22.99
The perfect pick for travellers, we love this on-the-go subscription for the wanderers in your life! Filled with amazing articles on all areas of world exploration, they’ll find plenty to help them plan their next trip – from finding fantastic flights to culture, food, photography, secret finds, local tips and much more!


2. Netflix gift card, £15-£100
As last minute Christmas gifts go, we can’t think of a much better one (apart from a magazine subscription, obviously) than a Netflix gift card. Once Christmas is over, it’s a great way to spoil your loved ones with great movies and stunning TV to catch up on during peak hibernation season. You can choose how much you gift, too – perfect if you’re on a tight budget this year.


3. National Art Pass, from £32
One for the arty types and culture vultures, you can buy a single, double, under 26, family or even lifetime pass! The National Art Pass gives your lucky recipient free entry to over 240 museums, galleries and historic houses across the UK (as well as 50% off entry to major exhibitions too). Fab for days out the whole year through. 

4. Amazon.co.uk Printable Gift Voucher, £10-£1000
If you’re totally stumped this year or need an almost-instant gift for a last-minute guest, a printable Amazon voucher is a winner. The gift of choice is never a chore for loved ones of all ages and interests – plus, vouchers last for 10 years (for the really indecisive)! Personalise your gift voucher with a photo or go for one of Amazon’s cute and colourful designs, then simply print and slide inside a Christmas card. Job done!

5. BBC Good Food digital magazine subscription, £24.99
Filled with delicious seasonal recipes with an emphasis on using what’s fresh and locally available (as well as tasty world cuisine to get stuck into), Good Food is always filled with good ideas for weekend feasts and midweek meals. A great gift for the foodie in your life who is always looking for a new dish to whip up for friends and family!


6. Willoughby Book Club subscription box, from £29.99
Know a brilliant bookworm? Willoughby Book Club has book subscriptions for all ages and interests – whether you’re looking for a little one that already has everything or a grown-up with their nose always in a book. Avid readers will love a monthly delivery from Willoughby Book Club, who handpick each book; why not try a contemporary, classic, cookery or gardening book subscription?


7. Hotel Chocolat Tasting Club subscription, from £60
The Hotel Chocolat Tasting Club is a great way for chocoaholics to refine their tastes. Each recipient gets a ‘testing kit’ filled with different varieties to try (Classic, Dark, Mellow, Fortified or Rare Cocoa). After choosing, they’ll receive 3, 6 or 12 months of their new favourite (depending on subscription length) with delicious truffles landing through their letterbox every month! We’re tempted to pick up one for ourselves…
