To help you find the perfect presents, we’ve quizzed editors at The Telegraph to find out what products have made it onto their shopping lists this Christmas. First up is Editor of Stella Magazine, Marianne Jones, who shares what she’ll be buying her loved ones (and herself!) this year…
Oh Christmas! The only time of the year it is acceptable to stay welded to the sofa, watching Bad Santa and sipping a pint of Baileys. I love it. But as the sole female in a houseful of males large and small, it appears to always be left to me to do the shopping, which is fine, because I’m great at shopping.
At 16 and almost 13, my sons are getting tougher to buy for with every passing year. The house has gone from being full of plastic toys to being full of trainers and designer fragrance. However, when our two young nephews come over, the Lego and Star Wars toys are still a hit.
Buying presents has always been something I hugely enjoy. I don’t think it matters what you spend but you do need to put a bit of thought into it. A favourite photo in a frame or a personalised box of chocolates aren't pricey, but they do show thought. My mum is the easiest person to buy for because, like me, she adores beauty products and fashion, but my husband is a tricky so-and-so. He is both vague and fussy so I tend to buy him safe but quality presents from brands such as Paul Smith, which I know he loves.
