Goslings Rum & Conker Cold Brew Cold Coffee Liqueur
Made from a 150-year-old recipe, Goslings Rum is a smooth, full flavour rum with notes of butterscotch, vanilla and caramel. The name comes from the black wax that was original used to seal the bottles. It pairs nicely with Ginger Ale and Ameretto for a lovely refreshing cocktail.
The Conker Cold Brew Coffee Liqueur is a handcrafted liqueur for people who love coffee. It’s bitter and sweet with rich espresso, stoned fruits and vanilla flavour. Best served chilled, no need to add Coffee or Vodka.
Oxford Rye Organic Vodka
Award-winning Oxford Rye Organic Vodka from The Oxford Artisan Distillery comes in a stylish wax-dipped bottle. The vodka is characterised as having “subtle notes of spice and warm caramel” and is filtered via coconut shell charcoal, which is unusual for a vodka. Best served chilled or at room temperature as a sipping vodka. Alternatively, it produces an exceedingly refreshing long drink when mixed with a Sicilian bitter tonic with ice. A great gift idea for all vodka-loving dads.
Fun & Games
A Little Wordy and A Game of Cat & Mouth
If you have a wordsmith on your hands, how about the A Little Wordy game? Each person creates a secret word from a set of tiles and keeps it to themselves. Players then take turns paying Berry Tokens for clues and suggestions in order to decipher their opponent’s secret word. The player receives Berry Tokens for each correctly guessed word, and the player with the most tokens wins.
Pinball-style fun is their thing? Then A Game of Cat & Mouth would be a good choice. A fiercely competitive, wickedly enjoyable hands-on pinball game. Kitty Paw Flickers, ball flinging and Rainbow Ralphing cat make it feel like you’re playing pinball with slingshots.
For the perfect dose of nostalgia, bring back the Tamagotchi. The small alien pet from outer space is back with a mix of old and new designs from 1997! How you raise your pet (games, food, and care) impacts how it grows up, just like in the good old days!
Peaky Blinders Card Game
Perfect for fans of the hit show, the Peaky Blinders card game will have you stepping into the wild streets of Birmingham in the 1920s, where lies spread quicker than reality. You’ll need to play your cards close to your chest to obtain the upper hand and enough clout to defeat your opponents. Form alliances, dissolve alliances and keep in mind that intellect is a precious commodity. Can you bluff and deceive your way to the top while everyone is trying to get you?
