If you’re tasked with finding a gift for someone who is proud to be from Yorkshire, for under a tenner, we may have the just the thing you are looking for....

There’s a lot of talk of mindfulness these days, which in laymans terms can be loosely translated to ‘taking your mind off things’. For many of us, it used to be a Saturday afternoon at the football, but that’s too stressful these days, especially with the added pressure of Fantasy Football.

This particular book is widely available, but we recommend you buy it from the York Minster shop as proceeds go towards the upkeep of the York landmark.

Whether you’re a Tetley lover or a fan of Yorkshire Tea, it’s safe to say that everyone loves a brew in Yorkshire. The Yorkshire Gift Company have a range of Yorkshire themed mugs that will create envy amongst colleagues who have only ever received a Sports Direct mug for Christmas.

There are a number of Yorkshire ‘Born and Bred’ Mugs available and the one we’ve chosen here is under a tenner, but they also stock oversized mugs to facilitate a larger brew.

If your secret santa recipient has recently completed the Yorkshire Three Peaks Challenge, give them a constant reminder of their achievement every time they visit the fridge. (Our guessing is that these can also be used within an office environment).

Alternatively, if you’re trying to persuade your friend to take the challenge in 2018, this is also a great passive-aggressive gift to help them make their decision.

The prospective return of blue passports was the reason why some people voted Brexit, if the existence of these passport covers were more widely known, we might not have needed a referendum.

Show the world how proud you are of your Yorkshire citizenship with this stylish blue passport cover.
