Christmas lights twinkle in the street, turkey-strewn sandwiches dominate coffee shops shelves, and yep, that’s a distant rendition of Last Christmas you can hear…Christmas is coming!
But what do you buy as a gift for a redhead? They’re incredibly rare, awesome, and potentially a bit feisty, so it’s important to keep them happy. And if they’re particularly proud of their gingerness (which all redheads should be, of course), then giving them a present that relates to their red hair will land you top marks this Christmas.
We’ve done the legwork for you and have put together a list of perfect Christmas gifts for gingers. Most are silly – all are awesome.
‘Ginger SNAP’ to entertain the whole family
We’ve combined the much-loved card game of Snap with, yep, you guessed it – ginger. Gather the whole family together to play Ginger SNAP, which celebrates every shade of red hair by showcasing them all on the playing cards.
From strawberry blonde to chestnut red, you’re in for hours of fun!
Tickets to a redhead event
There is no better way for a ginger to show their love of having the best hair colour than going to one of the world’s ginger gatherings. Surrounded by your fellow kin, redheads can have the time of their lives making new friends and celebrating what makes them special.
The next event of its kind is Redhead Day UK, taking place in central London on Saturday 19 May 2018, featuring heaps of live music, talks, comedy, photography, art, stalls – basically, as much gingerness as you can fit into one building.
A gingery, chocolatey treat
There’s something about ginger spice that screams Christmas, so why not treat your favourite redhead to this dedicated ‘Ginger’ tray of chocolates? It’s actually got their name on it.
Stranger Things Madmax coolness
Unless you’ve been living under a rock this Autumn, you’ll know by now of the coolness that is Netflix’s Stranger Things character, Madmax.
The redheaded tomboy is the coolest kid in the class, so we just want to be her (please).
GINGE, GINGE, and more GINGE
Help Gingerkind claim back the world ‘Ginge’, which is too often used as an insult towards redheads. We’ve had enough, so we’re embracing ‘Ginge’ as a celebration instead!
Ginger hotness with Red Hot
Thanks to Thomas Knights’ continually popular Red Hot project, with its exhibitions, books, calendars and more, the world is becoming more and more aware that ginger hair rocks (and quite rightly, too).
Allow the latest Red Hot calendar to help you select your new favourite redhead (because you can never have too many).
