WHERE SHOULD YOU START? As with most arduous tasks, preparation is key. When it comes to Christmas shopping, the earlier you start, the better. If you have a long list of people to buy for, draw up a schedule and dedicate days to finding gifts for each of them. That way, you’ll avoid the scrambles and shambles that predicate last-minute shopping.

WHAT SHOULD YOUR BUDGET BE? Missed Black Friday bargains? Don’t worry, there are still plenty of retailers offering deals right up until Christmas Day, making it easier for you to stay within your shopping budget. The trick is to identify how much you’re actually able to spend in total before hitting the shops, then you can divide accordingly and avoid starting the new year without so much as a single penny to your name.

WHAT TO BUY? Now that is the real question! No matter who you are, having to find gifts for the weird and wonderful characters in your life is cross we all must bear.

For the man in you life who might not be so happy with something costing under $20, think Sonos speakers and Aesop grooming kits. For the person whose bedside table is a cornucopia of beauty products, think snazzy highlighter powders and plush eyeshadow palettes. For the domestic gods and goddesses, think stained-glass window cookie cutters. For the person who could rule the world from their bed, think duck down duvets.
