We don’t mean to scare you but there are only 82 days left until Christmas, so if you haven’t at least started to think about prep for December 25th, it might be a good idea to start now so you’re not caught short in a few months’ time. To help you get started, here are five brilliant Christmas present ideas for you to put on your list or to buy friends and family yourself. Joyeux noël!

Christmas Galaxy oilcloth tablecloth


Oilcloth makes a great present and it’s now available in so many different patterns and prints that you really are spoiled for choice. This Christmas Galaxy tablecloth would be perfect to give or ask for as a present because while it works well during the festive season for all your parties, it can also be used throughout the year without looking too out of place. When ordering, however, make sure that you remember to allow for an overhang when deciding what size you want.

The Avocado Cookbook


Avocado is having a bit of a moment these days and if you’ve not experimented yet with this particular superfood, then you’re lagging behind the rest of us. This recipe book contains ideas like tortilla baskets, avocado frittatas, burritos and even Eton Mess – which is certainly intriguing, to say the least! Plus it comes as a hardback so would be a great present to stick under the tree for someone deserving.

Personalised dipped bar bangle


Lisa Angel makes some seriously beautiful jewellery and we’re very partial to these dipped bar bangles that can be personalised for a truly unique gift someone is sure to treasure forever. At just £22 they’re a bit of a steal as well – and who doesn’t like to get jewellery as a present? Choose between silver, gold or rose gold plate or solid sterling silver and come up with your own message to be hand-stamped on the bracelet. Beautiful.

Limited edition chunky knitted cushion


At £76, this cushion isn’t cheap but it is beautiful and would make a really lovely present for someone in your life who’s especially house proud. It’s in gorgeous chunky yarn and we love the little pompom detailing at the corners – and even better, you can pick and choose what colours you want so you can make sure it’s exactly right for your lucky recipient.

Mama Bear white enamel mug


Enamel mugs are really popular at the moment and they make great gifts so if you’re particularly stuck for ideas, what about buying a few of these to go under the tree? This Mama Bear one is lots of fun and perfect for your friends and family with little ones running around. It’s a steal at £16 or thereabouts so snap up a few to impress everyone this December 25th.
