Buying a Christmas gift for your loved one serving in the Armed Forces can sometimes be a bit of a chore … especially when it comes to buying military kit.
So, to help you, we have put together a list of our top 12 items that your military spouse, mother, son, daughter or dad would love to open on Christmas Day.
1. MTP Shooters Belt
By far the ally-est military belt on the market. These products are hand-made in the UK, and the company who produces them - FRV Tailoring - is a UK veteran-owned business.
2. Contact Coffee Co. Care Package
This fantastic tasting coffee and care package will help keep you alert and ready for whatever the day throws your way.
3. The North Face THERMOBALL™ TRACTION MULES V Slippers
There is no better way to keep your feet warm and looking tacti-cool, than wearing these bad boys by The North Face.
4. Duracell Portable Double-USB Power Bank
Everyone hates their phone running out of battery during overseas exercise or deployment, so why not buy your loved one a power bank, then you’ll be able to stay in touch for longer.
5. CamelBak Motherlode Lite Pack Daysack
Bit pricey at £139+, but if you have the cash to splash, then why not get them one of the most durable and best daysacks on the market. It is still yet to be confirmed, ‘can a daysack can be used at night?’.
6. Myo Pro Vibrating Massage Gun by Vibe Rollers
No one enjoys stretching after a workout, so why not make their life easier with a massage gun. This product is also from a UK veteran-owned business.
7. Jetboil Zip Stove
Cooking rations or your favourite Super Noodles in one of these is a doddle.

This would be a great addition to your block party or can be played during downtime while on deployment.
9. Whisky and Chocolate Pairing Gift Set
If they like whisky, then they'll love this gift set from The Whisky Exchange.
