Gift giving made easy

Christmas is every child's favourite time of year—yummy treats, two weeks of no school, and of course, a tree surrounded by pretty presents. For the adults who have to make all that magic happen, however, the season can be fraught with stress: cooking, cleaning and long hours spent frantically hunting for the perfect gifts can take its toll.

While we can't help with the cooking and cleaning, we can take some of the stress out of shopping. We've collected our best gift ideas, from eco-friendly gifts to what to buy the person you hate buying for, to help make the season a little more merry.
