However I only started my Christmas shopping yesterday whilst one of my very good and very organised friends is already shopping for next year!
So for those like me that still need a few pointers look no further than todays post. I thought I'd take a break from my Fashion Advent calendar to give you my top 5 Christmas present ideas.
This is 'Kiss and Love', the latest edition of YSL Touche Éclat, the iconic beauty essential and best selling corrector.
Buy from John Lewis as it's slightly cheaper than other retailers at £25!
Herb Lester is my go to brand for intelligent, in the know, well designed maps of places of interest.
This European gift set includes 22 of it's guides and comes in a ready made gift box; at £66 it's also a considerable saving compared to buying them individually.
The classic Ladybird books have been given an adult twist with this tongue in cheek 'How it works' collection.
Also from the adult Ladybird book range is 'The Shed' and "The Hangover" which will surely come in useful over the festive period!
This 'How it works' The MUM is £6.99 from Amazon.
The children already own Bird Bingo so I'm now able to identify lesser known feathered friends to rival Steve Backshall!
They would love a real life puppy but we know they aren't just for Christmas so this will have to suffice!
Dog Bingo by Polly Horner is available from Waterstones now £14.99; a great board game to crack open after the Queen's speech!
This Parlane International ceramic dish is great for serving up your veg on Christmas day, and will even make the sprouts look appealing!
It comes in grey or natural and I love the simple but effective pastry fluted finish.
£39.50 available from Rinkit.com.
Thanks for stopping by.
