Around 27% of Brits start their Christmas shopping three months before the big day, while 48% start just one month before. This leaves a lot of shoppers scrabbling to find the perfect present during December.

Christmas is a pricey time of year for everyone. The cost of food, drink, socialising, and other festive fun comes in at an average of £645 per person each year, with gifts being one of the biggest expenses during the lead-up to Christmas Day.

The average individual buys approximately 14 presents and spends around £117 on their partner, £145 on children, around £30 on their nan and best friend, and even £20 on their pet!

Now, we may not have anything suitable for your pet in our 12 Days of Christmas Offers promotion, but we have some great ideas for the humans in your life that you still need to buy for. Part one of our countdown includes some fantastic gifts for those who love to drive.

These gifts have the top-ratings on Amazon.
