Although Christmas (don't shoot me) may still seem like a tiny blip on the horizon, according to my clever Christmas app (if I shake my iPhone I hear bells... #jinglejingle), it is now (rather terrifyingly) fewer than three months 'til domesday December 25th.

While the lackadaisical among us might still think three months is practically a lifetime, just spare a moment to look back on last year's Christmas Eve chaos, as you dashed insanely 'round your nearest high street panic-buying slipper-socks and gadgetry...

DON'T let it happen again and this year, feel smug as you sip Tio Pepe beside mountains of beautifully wrapped Christmas gifts, guaranteed to draw appreciative coos from each lucky recipient. *leans back* *buffs nails*
