    Don't leave your Christmas shopping to late,as you don't want to be caught up in a rush or not have enough time. When buying presents, make an effort but don't become so devoted you would spend hours trailing around one shop and wasting time. Think about the person you are getting the present for.
    • Things like toy cars, teddy bears, chocolate, dolls, clothes and various toys and games appeal for younger children, while teenagers and children any other age may like items such as CDs, DVDs, sweets and chocolate, drawing and art stuff, clothes, etc.
    • Girls and mums especially like bath stuff and make up!
    • And a boy or your dad will most likely happily receive chocolate, men's body care or men's clothes too.
    • Pick anything you like for them! Ask what they would like as well.
    • When choosing presents for your friends, pick about two or three special ones for really good ones,and cute little treats for other mates.A maximum of 5 is good.Hair accessories,make up,sweets and stationary make ideal gifts for girls.Look for bargains and bargain shops because you can pick up some really brilliant stuff from there! Go on a day you will be free.

When it's morning, go into your living room and have fun opening the stocking! Say thank you for everything, even if your parents insist they all came from Santa.... and enjoy them!
