5 min read

So... us.

It's one week 'til Christmas.

So we thought it's best to put together a last minute gift guide, because if you're like us you're procrastinating with your Christmas movie list. But we have some amazing friends who sent through some helpful ideas to get us through our shopping, so why not share them with YOU!

There are a few different genres of gifts for Christmas. There's the sentimental gift for mum, the joke gift for dad, the foodie gift for you BFF, the boozy one for your Grandpa plus many more. Hopefully this gift guide ticks a few naughty and nice people off your list.

The giving:
