Christmas is fast approaching and it’s time to start thinking about gifts, if you haven’t already. I have done most of my shopping already. I really didn’t want to leave it until the last minute. Saying that, I will probably end up wrapping at the last minute and that really is hell. The trouble is my house is quite wee so I just don’t have room to wrap and store presents. A spare room would be a wonderful thing.

So this is a gift guide, but a gift guide like no other. Everything in this Christmas Gift Guide will be won by one lucky reader. Yes you read that right, one lucky reader will win everything in this guide. How exciting is that. It’s like having a second Christmas. 

So let’s get this thing started!
