Christmas is almost upon us! But let’s be honest; this time of year can be filled with just as much stress as it does merriment. So to save you a mad dash around the High Street on the lead-up to the day, we’ve put together a set of Christmas Gift Guides which should have all bases covered when buying for an average Joe. In this guide, we’re looking at stocking fillers!
Skullcandy Push Wireless Earbuds
A decent pair of wireless earbuds will always be appreciated by any Joe at Christmas and we likes these Push earphone from Skullcandy. Boasting a total 12 hours of battery life, Push earbuds hold up to six hours of play and the charging case holds an additional six hours. That means when you’re not listening, your earbuds are charging in the case and ready to go the next time you need them. Water-resistant and splashproof, they’re available in a wide range of colours, including blue, red and black.
Canterbury Men’s England Home Rugby Jersey
We’re still as cut up about the World Cup Final as you are, but there’s still every reason to wear the English rose with pride. A match-day must-have for all England rugby fans, this official replica from Canterbury has a comfortable, straight supporter’s fit and is finished with English red rose embroidery, so you can show the boys your support whether you’re cheering from the touchlines or committing in your own training sessions.

With more of us than ever opting for two wheels rather than public transport on our morning commute, cycling safety is a hot topic at the moment. And with the mornings/nights only getting darker, the Indik8a could make a real difference. Worn on a bare hand or over a glove and activated by a switch on each hand, the lightweight Indik8a offers high visibility indicating for cyclists with illuminated directional arrows.
