Normally in my Christmas gift guide i focus just on gifts for cyclists, but this year i'm going to branch out a bit and include some gifts less related to cycling but more related to having a chilled and delicious warm cosy Christmas. As usual i like to support independent businesses (like myself) so here goes. I hope this is useful!

Hackney brand of chocolate that is premium and delicious! i don't always buy chocolate by its colour palette, but i think people should

This shampoo and i are having a love affair, i believe i cannot live without it. The company is championing using less water in products as well as donating a percentage of all sales to a young person in need. Whats not to like.
