Lumie Bodyclock

Stage 3Although this might be another unusual gift to give this year, it would be a very thoughtful one.  The Lumie Bodyclock is a great way to start the day, it utilises simulated natural light to help wake you and drift off to sleep.  It does this by creating a 30 minute sunset and sunrise in your bedroom.  You see your body is fine tuned to react to the natural daily cycle, so when your brain detects a gentle sunrise, it will automatically begin to wake up your body.  The same process is applied to when a sunset is is detected and of course in a world where we are al busy and lead hectic lives, our days are no longer governed by the cycle of the day.

Fully customisable so that you can wake and sleep at any time, the Lumie Bodyclock can help you get the best nights sleep and awake refreshed and ready to take on the day ahead.  It also acts as a bedside lamp that can be dimmed to a comfortable level for you so that you can read or use it as a night light.  Just in case you are someone who sleeps through, there is even a back up alarm to ensure heavy sleepers aren’t late.

Available from Lumie for £59.95

Into The Blue

me chopperIf you are looking for a truly different gift this year, then Into The Blue could be exactly what you have been searching for.

Into The Blue supply vouchers for experience days and not just the ones you are used to seeing, such as driving a fast car or spending some time being pampered at a spa.  Yes, you can pick up a gift pack for one of those if that is what tickles your fancy, but then you could help someone tick off an item on their bucket list by choosing an experience with a difference…

Parachute jumping, balloon flying, helicopter flying lessons and wing walking, tank driving, train driving or take the helm of a hovercraft.  Maybe canoeing and paddle boarding is more your speed, or go on a survival skills course, or bungee jumping.  There really are too many experiences to list here, but there is definitely going to be something for everyone given there are dance lessons, cooking courses and days out, as well as the more adventurous outdoor pursuits.

I was lucky enough to have a Helicopter Flying Lesson experience and would love for you to take a short trip over to this page here and have a read about how I got on, as well as see a video of the actual flight!
