Best Gift Ideas Top Pick
It was quite hard for us to agree on a absolute favourite so we’ve left it to two. Firstly is the UNT mug, with a C shaped handle. Secondly, with potentially a little more maturity involved in the decision making process (potentially) is the Star Trek Original Phaser – as a remote control! You can control your TV, your iPod and all sorts of other gadgets with it. It’s great.

Mountains surround you while wind rushes onto your face as you race down the zipline at up to 100mph – that’s right, 100mph!

13. eCigWizard
ecigwizardlogo

About
E-cigarettes have taken smokers by storm because they’re finally allowed to smoke inside in the warmth again. On top of that, e-cigarettes don’t have the same negative impacts as regular cigarettes. Nicotine is vapourised within the mouthpiece and water vapour recreates the smoking feeling by allowing you to exhale ‘real’ smoke. While they are not officially allowed to be touted as a smoking cessation device, they have helped many of our personal friends cut down – and save money. Plus they come in all sorts of flavours!

Best Gift Ideas Top Pick
The only way forward is with the E-cig starter kit, which is a extremely competitive £19.99 and comes in two colours.

Delivery Information
 Quick one day delivery is available for £7.99 as long as you order before 1PM between Monday and Friday.
