Christmas is only 10 days away, and it really is the most wonderful time of the year! I love the colours that come to life during the festive season and all the things that follow with it – the smell of pine, the plethora of gingerbread houses on display, the excitement in the air and of course the carols that come into loop on the radio and at shopping centres.
By now you should have a good idea of what to get your loved ones and how you plan to spend the days over Christmas. However, if you’re still in need of some gift inspiration, or maybe would like some ideas to hint for yourself, I’ve put together the 10 best gifts for Christmas, in no particular order of course!
