It’s that time of year.
The Christmas machine is well and truly in motion.
The pressure to find gifts for family and friends is on. And the pressure to tell others what you want for Christmas.
It’s a major stress because there is so much good stuff out there. With that much choice available it’s not our fault that we struggle.
Wouldn’t it be more relaxed if someone pulled together a list of cool gift ideas and you could pick something from it?
We think so. And to help you (and help ourselves – we have to buy gifts too) we put together this list of our favorites.
You should be able to find something here, even for the non surfers. If not, then it will give you some ideas to build on.
Here’s the Christmas Gift Guide 2016…
