There might be mixed views on adult scooters but we think they’re a great way to get around and explore your environment. Who cares if it raises a few eyebrows? You’re free as a bird! And, believe it or not, you can burn up to 300 calories an hour on a scooter! The Xiaomi electric scooter is a fun, quirky gift for Christmas. And, it’s got some serious credentials, featuring a double braking system and acceleration up to 15.5 mph with just a press of your thumb on the controls. Its award-winning design is obvious in the lightweight aluminium frame and its clean lines. If you’re looking for gifts for someone who has everything then an electric scooter might be the one thing they would never have thought of.
N.B. Electric scooters must not be used on public highways, pavements, cycle lanes or bridleways, but only on private property with the owner’s consent. For further guidance, please click here.

As technology changes and cars rely more heavily on electronics for security, so have the thieves’ methods become more creative to gain entry to your vehicle. Diagnostic machines are often used to fool the car in to thinking that the key is present. Or, most commonly, the ID of your key is cloned by a device that can access the RF signal of your key fob. The Halfords Anti-Theft Car Key Signal Blocker or Faraday Wallet, fits 99% of vehicle key fobs and is one of the best-kept secrets to give at Christmas. This clever wallet has a specially designed lining that prevents thieves from being able to scan and extract the ID of your key fob. Just pop your keys securely in to the pocket of the wallet and you’ll reduce the risk of coming back from your NYE party and finding your car isn’t where you left it.
Pop the neat Lynx Gel Car Freshener into your cup holder or door pocket and fill your car with the refreshing scents of citrus and patchouli with wood tones. It’s really discreet so you can place it wherever you like and enjoy the confidence-boosting aroma whenever you’re in the car. A super little stocking filler for the man in your life who takes pride in his wheels!
Bike helmets can offer more than just protection for your head in the event of an accident they can also provide extra visibility to other motorists. A brightly coloured helmet can help you be seen on a busy road and many helmets now have built in reflectors that are particularly useful if you’re cycling at night. Our Smart bike helmets go one step further and make a great Christmas gift for a cycling enthusiast. The Livall BH60SE Bluetooth Enabled Smart Helmet has a state of the art system that gives you additional levels of safety as you’re cycling. It’s connected in every sense with Bluetooth speakers giving you access to your favourite playlist and a hands-free microphone allowing you to take calls on the go. Use the remote control fixed to the handlebars to control the LED indicator lights on the helmet. And, if you get in to difficulty, the SOS alert safety sensor will raise the alarm with your emergency contact list if it senses a lack of movement from you. All in all this helmet is packed full of smart features that makes for a delightful cycling gift at Christmas.
