Last minute gift ideas

You've stocked up on winter socks, chocolate money and novelty jumpers for the family but, horror of horrors you've forgetten Aunty Doris! What to do? Well, here's a few last minute suggestions that may, or may well not, be handy;

  • My friend Reuben is an extremely talented musician, a kind of Leonard Cohen who can both sing and play. His band The Statues has produced a rather good album Ashes At The Dawn which you can sample then order on online (for cd or download).

  • Corny perhaps but Oxfam are selling you the opportunity to help some of the most vulnerable people on the planet and provide gifts for your loved ones at the same time. According to their 'best buys' section chickens are currently the top Xmas gift right now.

  • I like stationery, but I'm not geeky about it, so it was news to me that you can get an environmentally friendly stapler of all things. What home is complete without a staple-less Eco-stapler or a Water Powered Clock? Well, most of them probably, but it tickled me.

  • Have you ever thought of buying a press officer for Christmas? No? Well the Scottish Green Party have a very special offer for you.
Anyway, enough of this consumerism, but I hope that helps.
