This is a really interesting mindfulness gift. It is a rustic jar with a fabric lid covering which has daily mindfulness tasks and challenges inside.

Each task is deigned to be easy to carry out in any place at any time so that you are able to do them whenever and wherever suits you.

This is the board game Twister. It is such a fun game and really easy to play as well and suitable for children and adults. It is a fun game where players have to touch a circle of a certain colour with a particular hand or foot.

This is a really quirky but practical gift for gardeners. The gardening gloves have plastic claws on some of the fingers.
