The best last-minute Christmas gifts for laggards (yes, you!)

Great ideas if you've missed the last posting dates

We completely understand that facing the shops on Christmas Eve is not something any right-minded human being should have to go through, and we also know that most delivery services are now not an option for the best last-minute presents. Well, you can still Amazon Prime stuff until tomorrow, mind you. 

Queues in the shops tomorrow and on Christmas eve are simply hateful. And unless you're a seasoned shopper, the whole affair can seem a trifle overwhelming.

Never fear, you don't need to head off to the local garage and start readying an excuse about how much you thought your loved one loved a six pack of generic cola and a chocolate bar, because there's still time to snap up a really rather awesome present.
