E1 Christmas Gift Ideas

The festive season is fast approaching and work is beginning to wind down, but you still haven’t found the perfect outfit for the upcoming company Christmas party! Not to mention the gift wrapping you still have left to do.

Christmas should be a time of enjoyment and an opportunity to try new things, not one for stressing out and making the mad dash to the local supermarket on Christmas Eve to buy a tin of biscuits for those you couldn’t find a gift for.

This poses the question, what do you buy for someone that either has everything or is just very difficult to buy for?

We love Christmas here at New Road Hotel and we have come up with some of our favourite alternative Christmas Gift ideas:

The Jack the Ripper Tour

The Jack the Ripper Tour

These are the best Jack the Ripper tours around, a great way to see the history of Whitechapel and learn more about one of the greatest mysteries in the history of crime, one I think would be great for the next New Road Hotel team build event.

The gruesome tale of Jack the ripper remains the greatest mystery in the history of crime. Our Jack the ripper tour is the only tour to use RIPPER-VISION, the latest hand held projectors with the latest graphic pictures some of which have never been seen before. All our guides are dedicated ripperologists and enthusiasts and each one is a member of the cloak and dagger club a theatrical performance team who bring old crime history to life.

The Whitechapel Gallery Shop

Playing a part in London’s culture the Whitechapel Gallery has been at the forefront of modern art – but did you know they had a shop? For anyone that is an art lover, there are great gifts and stocking fillers to be found. We particularly like the Whitechapel inspired colouring book – it’s not just for kids!
