Last Minute Christmas Gift Guide 2016

Christmas shopping can almost feel like a chore, even when you know someone so well and you finish each other’s sentences. But there’s always a another element to consider – whether it is your work secret Santa, a complete stranger, family or a friend. Buying a gift for your loved-ones sounds easy, but in the grand scheme of things, most of us don’t want a gift that we will never use. Only a month before Christmas, we tend to get out our notepad and pens and release our inner inhibitions, jotting down a never-ending list of shoes, bags, toys, toiletry gifts, make-up, home-ware products, in the hope they will purchase something you really want. 

So in a bid to ensure you have plenty of ideas for your friends and family, here are some of my top picks, from a couple of retailers who pretty much give you everything on a plate for your Christmas shopping. The likes of Debenhams and House of Fraser are truly amazing this year for their choice of gifts; and it doesn’t stop there. There is something for everyone.
