Christmas wouldn’t be Christmas without lots of lovely old-fashioned games, the sort that don’t need batteries or plugs. Ridley’s House of Novelties has almost all the old favourites, packaged retro-style and inexpensive enough to fill stockings. There are Magic Card Tricks (£4), a harmonica (pictured, about £5), a wooden compendium of games (£13), Know Your Knots kit (£5) and lots more.
