Not even mid-November and Christmas is already everywhere. Starbucks’ red cups arrived last week, John Lewis unveiled its Christmas TV ad that almost made me cry, and Zippy is back on Manchester’s Albert Square.
All of this sort of led me to start searching for cool & cheap (well, yeh) Christmas gifts. I got really excited when I found out about this pretty cool website FireBox, so here’s some inspiration for you lot.
WARNING: might not be suitable for your mother-in-law.
1/ Abashiri – the bluest beer in the world
COOL right? It’s not even a little bit blue, it’s REALLY blue.
2/ Spreadable beer – the perfect boozy accompaniment for your toasts
40% beer and sticky smooth texture for an irresistible hoppy scent – suitable for vegetarians in case you were wondering.
3/ Fucking Hell beer – innocently named after the village of ‘Fucking’ in Austria
Because fucking hell it’s Christmas already.
4/ Beer bread – beer not included
Just add a beer to the mix and you’ll have a delicious load of bread in less than a hour.
5/ Scorpion Vodka – 100% edible
Not really in the Christmas spirit but the perfect gift for animal lovers.
6/ Molecular Mixology Cocktail kit
Alright, this one isn’t the cheapest (£29.9) but is surely good fun.
