Murder mystery-themed Christmas gifts ideas I hear you say? We have some excellent festive ideas and inspiration for you.

Whether it’s tickets for a Christmas show, or our Traitors-themed mystery in January, a murder mystery-themed cocktail, one of our Investigations games, we’ve got you covered.

Here are some ideas to get your creative juices flowing so you can relax once December arrives

A Christmas mystery

An idea for an early Christmas present to help get you in the mood for the festive season is tickets to a Christmas mystery.

Who Sleighed Santa comes to The Morritt Hotel and Garage Spa, near Barnard Castle on Friday, December 1.

The Wenceslas Department Store Santa is rubbish and not very friendly!

Bob Balls, the friendly elf is desperate to play Santa, and last year’s Santa is found dead in the office!

Our favourite festive plot will have you laughing out loud while you enjoy a three course meal.

Tickets are just £40 each and can be booked by calling the hotel on 01833 627232 or click here. Grab them while they’re there!

A Traitor Among Us

Our Traitors-themed mystery, A Traitor Among Us, is based on the hit BBC One show starring Claudia Winkleman. Starring fan favourite from the 2023 series, Amanda Lovett, this will make the perfect gift for any Traitors fans.

We’ll be performing at Hall Garth Hotel in Darlington on Friday, January 26 2024, and we can’t wait.

Follow along as Amanda and the suspects are in a reality TV show and someone is bumping off the contestants!

Tickets are £40 and can be booked by clicking here.

A drink to die for

If you’ve seen us perform Murder and the Grand Duchess, you’ll know about the grand duchess’ preferred drink, her blackcurrant champagne cocktail, also known as a Kir Royale.

The blackcurrant liquor makes a fabulous Christmas gift. Named after Felix Kir, a mayor in Burgundy who used to offer the drink at his soirées after the Second World War.

Ideally, chill a Champagne flute in the freezer for 20 minutes. Pour the creme de cassis into the glass, amounting to about one tbsp worth.

Top with well-chilled Champagne, or whatever bubbly you have, and then drop in a fresh or frozen blackcurrant to serve.


You are the detective in our cold case file games.

Witness statements, interviews, photos, and reports that make up the files in your case will arrive on your doorstep and it’s up to you to uncover the killer.

There are six games in our series of Investigations and all put you in the shoes of the detective.

With each mystery you receive files from a seventh cold case crime that you can solve once you’ve cleared up the first six cases.

Play alone, as a date night, or bring friends together and discover who has what it takes to uncover the truth. Click here to shop case files.
