4. A Tai Chi Class – Christmas can be a manic time of year, so why not pay for a course of Tai Chi lessons. This ancient Chinese martial art is perfect for relaxing and centring your mind. It’s also wonderful for your joints, flexibility and overall health. Many spas and health centres offer classes led by qualified instructors. Sometimes classes are conducted in the open air to refresh the body and mind.

5. A Book A Month – Everyone loves curling up with a good book. But like lots of other things, people have such varied tastes it can be hard to know what to buy. Instead of a boring book token why not give them a Reading Year from Mr. B’s Emporium. They’ll get to consult with one of the independent book seller’s bibliophiles and then receive a book each month for a year. Each title is carefully selected to be in tune with their tastes so you can be sure they’ll be satisfied with each and every one.
