Gift Universe: Embrace Quirkiness and Uniqueness with Menkind, Prezzybox, and Red5

Under the Gift Universe umbrella, you’ll find three amazing brands: Menkind, Prezzybox, and Red5.

Menkind, a popular gift and gadget retailer since 2001, is all about embracing your inner child and adding a touch of quirkiness to your life. Speaking of quirkiness, Nina humorously claims that their products are as weird as broccoli-flavoured ice cream!

From licensed products to personalised items, Menkind offers a wide range of original gifts for those who prefer to stand out and express their individuality. And if you’re looking for something unique, Red5 has recently joined the Gift Universe family.

Prezzybox remains one of the leading online retailers in the UK, providing a haven for gift seekers and offering a wide range of personalised items that make every celebration and special moment even more memorable.

Mini Massage Cushion

Unveiling the Ultimate Christmas Gift: The Mini Massage Cushion

Unlocking the mystery of the most surprising gift that customers love during Christmas, Nina reveals, “I’d say it’s the mini massage cushion. Usually retailing for 35 pounds, it’s currently on sale at a discounted price of only 30 pounds, and it’s flying off the shelves!”

Don’t let its size deceive you because this mini cushion is a powerhouse! With four pressure points that massage in rotating circles and an optional heat mode, it’s perfect for soothing those aching limbs and offering relaxation like never before. Backs, arms, legs – this mighty cushion has got you covered!

Nina unveiled the thrilling reality of the festive season at Gift Universe. “We’ve got an exciting couple of weeks before Christmas,” she explained. “Black Friday is just around the corner, and we’ve got some really exciting Black Friday specials.”

But the excitement doesn’t stop there. Gift Universe stores will be running these incredible deals from Thursday, 23 November, all the way up until Cyber Monday on 27 November. As for their online promotions, they’ll be in full swing from Friday, 17 November, until Cyber Monday as well.

With a sparkle in his eye, Nuts playfully exclaimed, “I love gadgets, and I love all those kinds of things that you can’t get anywhere else.” And that’s when Nina, the gift guru, chimed in enthusiastically, ready to unveil the ultimate present.

Experience the Excitement of Red5 Electronic Laser Tag Game

RED5 Electronic Laser Tag Game Set

“Let me start with the RED5 Electronic Laser Tag Game Set available from Menkind at £39,” Nina revealed, her excitement contagious. “It’s an infrared two-player laser tag game that contains all you need for you and a friend to start taking safe potshots at each other.”

Imagine the thrill as laser shooters reload with a pump-action slide, unleashing powerful infrared beams for amazingly accurate and long-distance shooting. And that’s not all – when the battle gets intense, your strap-on body target lights up, vibrates, and even emits sounds to signal that you’ve been ‘hit.’

But here’s the best part: no more sneaky cheaters! As Nina divulged, “No more cheating because it automatically counts the hits, so to win, you just have to shoot your friend or try not to get shot.”

As they delved deeper into the world of unique and innovative presents, one particular item caught their attention – the USB Cup Warmer by Ingenious!

“It’s a crazy cure for a warm cup of coffee,” joked Nina. “I think we’ve all been there, a cup at the desk while working away, and you go to drink it to find that it’s as cold as a penguin on an ice cube diet.”

Priced at an affordable £12, this USB cup warmer from Ingenious is making waves in the gift-giving scene. Nina excitedly shared, “It plugs into any adapter and heats your drink to about 53 degrees Celsius. So, you can keep your freshly made drinks warm or gently heats cooler ones. It’s the perfect device for home or office to get your favourite drink at the right temperature.”

But that’s not all! This innovative cup warmer also boasts a built-in gravity switch. Nina added, “It automatically stops heating when you lift your mug, so you won’t be wasting energy when you’re done.”

Ginger couldn’t resist revealing, “Nuts is forever letting his drinks go cold. So, this would be perfect for him. No more excuses!”
