Last minute gift ideas for the whole family
THE pressure is on... There are only five days until Christmas and if you were a crammer back in high school when it was exam time, you're probably the same when it comes to buying gifts this time of year.
So for the unorganised and the time-poor, here's a few last minute gift ideas to inspire you to get cracking with your shopping:
GRANDMA: Framed family photo, kitchen appliances if baking is her thing, something handmade or jewellery.
GRANDAD: Some crystal whiskey classes are likely to impress if he is that way inclined, or something extra special to store his spirits in. If he's a sports fan, maybe some good-old merch is the way to go.
MUM: Jewellery, day spa voucher, new watch or painting for the dining room wall.
DAD: Fishing gear, sporting merch, wallet or some funky boat shoes so he stops wearing those worn-out old loafers he claims were cool in 1967.
HUSBAND OR WIFE: A year of unlimited news with a FREE tablet: This is the gift that keeps on giving every day! This Christmas, we're offering a crazy deal with our 12-month unlimited digital news subscription including a free weekend paper delivered, unlimited access to the Courier Mail+, the Washington Post and - get this - a FREE Samsung Galaxy Tab A 7" tablet! This offer will only work as a gift if the recipient lives at the same address as the person buying it, but even if you wanted to keep the news subscription and give away the tablet that's a cracker of a gift! Head HERE or phone 1300 361 604 for more.
SON: wireless Dr Dre headphones, skateboard, jetpack ride or paintball skirmish voucher.
DAUGHTER: Blow-up swan for the pool, choker necklaces, bluetooth speakers.
Now it's up to you... get shopping!
