There’s nothing remotely Christmassy about the stress of last minute shopping and panic-buying bad gifts. When it comes to Christmas, a little help can go long way. And by a little help, we don’t mean having your own personal elves to do your shopping for you; we mean having useful suggestions for what to buy your family and friends.

And with that, here are five top-notch gifts that are sure to get you in the good books – and keep you on Christmas card lists next year.
