2 Lacoste’s Run Spin Ultra GTX trainers
Excel in the gym or the great outdoors with this exciting new footwear collaboration. Lacoste have partnered with GORE-TEX, resulting in the Run Spin Ultra GTX, a new waterproof and windproof trainer.
The GORE-TEX brand is acclaimed for their technical knowledge; GORE-TEX products technologies are the unrivalled masters in durable, weather-proof footwear. Here, GORE-TEX provides a breathable membrane, invisibly integrated directly into the shoe. This membrane is specially designed so that water droplets cannot pass through, and yet air, vapour and sweat moisture drain off.
The lightweight construction means fewer pressure points, providing ultimate comfort and zero irritation – perfect for when you’re pushing yourself to keep going. The sneaker has a snug sock-like fit, thanks to an extended vamp. Similarly, laces are topped with innovative silicon “laces pods” for extra protection, ensuring zero rubbing. A padded heel clip helps secure the foot in place, while toe protection shields the foot.

8 Jukes Cordialities’ collection
Picture this – it’s Boxing Day morning, and you’ve woken up sans hangover – instead feeling rather refreshed when it comes to facing the barrage of relatives. Introducing Jukes Cordialities, the brainchild of Matthew Jukes, a world-renowned wine taster and writer with over thirty years’ experience in the international wine trade.
A collection of apple cider-based drinks that do everything that wine does on the nose, palate and finish, but without any grapes or alcohol involved, and also all extremely low in calories. Crafted by trained chefs, all Jukes Cordialities engender a similar, satisfying perfume, mouthfeel and aftertaste of a glass of fine wine, by combining fruit, vegetables, herbs, spices and flowers with a gentle, long, cool maceration in organic apple cider vinegar, to extract exactly the right amount of colour and flavour from each component.
The drinks come presented in a beautiful monochrome box, and thus only require a festive flourish and a wrap of ribbon to make them the perfect gift for under the tree or attending a festive soirée.
Priced at £35.00, shop via Jukes jukescordialities.com or find them at Fortnum & Mason, The Conran Shop, and top-rated wine merchants such as Jeroboams, Lea & Sandeman, Hennings, Taurus, Loki and Haynes Hanson & Clark in the UK.

14 Bottega Spa’s Alcohol-Free Sparkling Zero Rosé NV
Fizz and fun without the headache – this sparkling Zero Rosé is a brand-new, low-alcohol fizz from a highly respected Prosecco and Moscato d’Asti producer, Bottega.
A great alternative to wine, Sparkling Zero Rosé shimmers and glitters with tones of tangy cranberry, frozen redcurrants, raspberry sorbet, crunchy red cherries, red grapes and blossom. But the great news is that it comes in at under 0.5% ABV, which is classed as alcohol-free by EU law and, on occasions, some fermented foods, breads and fruit juices can even have a higher alcohol content than this.
Crafted from grape must made in the Veneto region (where Prosecco comes from), Sparkling Zero Rosé is the perfect choice for anyone looking to reduce or avoid alcohol consumption, but who still want all the delicious flavour, crisp refreshment, celebratory feelings and something to toast with.
