Spabreaks.com has also made it easier for those looking to treat the men in their life this Christmas with spa experiences and gift vouchers to suit everybody.

10. Mr Wheeler Wine

Need a gift for that wine-aficionado in the extended family? Check out Mr Wheeler Wines.

Better wine drinking means experiencing a greater level of enjoyment and satisfaction. Mr Wheeler empowers their customers to be able to choose wines based on knowledge, insight and an understanding of what they enjoy.

A large portion of UK consumers tend to rely on the major retailers or supermarkets to provide wine choices and more often than not, those wines selected are based on price, and then varietal, region or country, and possibly not quality.

Their wines come from family-owned vineyards across the globe – often smaller vineyards that have developed across a number of generations. Their aim is to support these fantastic producers, ensuring we are working in a partnership that means they have a sustainable business and can concentrate on producing the very best wines.
