Alternative Gift Giving

DATED: 26.11.15

The nights grow cold, the smell of bonfire lingers in the air, and the ground is frosty underfoot. Leaves are falling, it’s raining in abundance and snow is on the way. Winter is coming friends, and that can only mean one thing. Buying presents for friends, family and loved ones is commonplace at Christmas – and there are still plenty of birthdays hanging around, too.

Finding suitable gifts to appease the average Jack the Ripper fan isn’t as hard as you would think; thanks to the sharp rise in popularity of Sons of Anarchy, Game of Thrones and The Walking Dead. Let’s not forget to mention the saturation of horror classics being transformed into television series’, day in, day out.

If you still have no idea where to begin, though, we’re going to give you a helpful shove in the right direction. Your child/nephew/aunt or friend with a morbid obsession of all things serial killer need not go without a meaningful gift again.

If you’re buying for him…

There are countless options for the special man in your life who can’t get enough of guts and gore. From The Walking Dead versions of Monopoly to blood stained shower curtains, throwing star hooks for your coat and brain specimen coasters, you can’t move for dead bodies and the undead.

If you’re buying for her…

Ladies that love a bit of horror will adore moulded chocolate skulls, candles that melt to reveal skeletons and vintage zombie print skirts. You  can even get packs of cards that are zombie-fied for that friend that insists on playing drinking games until she looks like one.

Something a bit different…

For those that seemingly already have everything else, what else is there? Horror experiences, ghost walks and of course, the legendary Jack the Ripper tour in London Town. Combine with a trip to the Dungeons and you’ve got yourself a horror fan’s dream trip planned.

Tickets for the tour fly out around this time of year, so be sure to book your tickets now to avoid disappointment. It’s a sure-fire winner of a gift, and it’s a bargain, too. With visits to actual murder sites, info on the suspects and victims, as well as a look at original crime scene photos, you can’t go wrong with the Jack the Ripper tour.
