In our family, my wife is always the one that gets us organised for Christmas. She writes down a list of everyone we need to buy a gift for and what we could get them. She’s brilliant really because without this I could guarantee I’d forget someone’s present!
Christmas is such a magical time of the year but it’s also one of the busiest times of the year too! Rushing around to get gifts for all your loved ones, stressing about what you should get them, fighting with the wrapping paper when it tears unexpectedly, spending hours untangling the Christmas lights, all of which can lead to one of the most stressful times of the year!
In this post, I’m hoping to provide all of you guys out there that may have forgotten or left it until the very last minute with the perfect gift idea that means you don’t have to go rushing around the shops on a frantic dash (something which I’ve experienced many times and it’s absolute hell, as I’m sure many of you know all too well).
Escape Rooms from Handmade Mysteries
If you’re looking to bag yourself a bargain and give you friends or family an awesome time, then you should definitely take a look at these escape rooms from Handmade Mysteries.
You can buy your loved ones an escape room gift voucher that they can use to book a date at any of the escape rooms. It’s a unique gift that I’m sure your recipient wouldn’t be expecting. They could make a full day or weekend of it as well!
Handmade Mysteries have two different types of escape rooms in various locations across the UK. The first one is called Poppa Plock’s Wonky Workshop (sounds wonderfully wacky doesn’t it).
Poppa Plock’s Wonky Workshop
The main character inside this room is the ventriloquist dummy Oki – who is sarcastic and cheeky and helps players with clues in the game. Roy is the dismembered mannequin that gamers are challenged to put together throughout the game. The host is a wind up doll called Wynne, he’s a little broken so can be unpredictable!
It honestly sounds like a brilliant game that everyone is sure to enjoy! This game is situated in North London (near Camden).
They have two London escape rooms For this particular story that can accommodate up to 6 people, so a great option if you’re looking for a gift for more than one person!

Their second escape room is called Lady Chastity’s Reserve. Sounds intriguing doesn’t it!
Its currently in 3 locations, 2 of which are London and there is one escape room in Brighton. Your host will introduce you to the lair of Lady Chastity where you will face her strange contraptions! This one is definitely for people over the age of 18 because Lady Chastity has some sordid secrets that are sure to shake you up!
If you are able to outwit Lady Chastity, you will come away with Her fabled bottle of aphrodisiac wine!
