December’s arrived, the Christmas adverts have increased and it is becoming more and more difficult to avoid Noddy Holder’s whining vocals. That can only mean one thing: time to do your Christmas present shopping. Yes, the daunting task you have been putting off and off is no longer inescapable. Unless, of course, you want to be traipsing around your local mall on Christmas Eve hoping to find something when most of the shelves are empty. Instead, avoid the mad rush and take a look at The Idle Man’s gift guide, designed to help you find something for your brother, boyfriend or dad all from the comfort of your own home.
