We love this extremely cute cuddly penguin too. At just £10, it’s the perfect companion for your little niece, nephew or sibling.
We all know it’s not a proper Christmas dinner without a cracker, so we’ll be picking up these box crackers for just £9.99 from Hawkins Bazaar.

The go-to gift for a distant relative has got to be a smellies set, and Superdrug has a large range of sets for men this year, with smellies from brands like Adidas and Dove. They’re reasonably priced too, with sets available for under £15.
Men are notoriously difficult to buy for, so if you’re really struggling, simply pop into HMV and pick up the latest DVD or CD the charts currently have to offer. With select DVDs two for £20, you can go all out, or if he isn’t into films, get him the latest chart compilation CD for his car.
