Personalised face mask covering

xmas gift personalised covid maskSince 2020 has been an unusual year, to say the least, and we still don’t know if we will be able to meet loved ones on Christmas Day, how about a personalised face mask covering?

If you’ve been in a supermarket or shop and found everyone is wearing the same surgical type of mask, then these are a brilliant way to stand out from the crowd.

They also make you look normal, at least from a distance, so people will recognise you.

There’s no need to follow the crowd to cover your face with a bland face mask.

You can buy a personalised face mask from Not On The High Street at £14.

Stargazing experience

You don’t even have to love stars and it is a great way to experience the magic of a star-filled sky.

The present costs just £50 from Virgin Experience Days.

If looking at stars isn’t for you, then Virgin Experience Days have a wide range of other opportunities to enjoy.
