Ahead of the game: early Christmas gifts

In the first of six gift guides, presents that require advance planning

We know: the turkeys are still being fattened, fur coat season is just beginning, the skis are not yet waxed; it seems impossibly early to turn one’s mind to holiday gifts. But it’s never too soon for present-planning. In the interests of alleviating stress, this week, and for the next five, we offer our own curated selection of fail-safe surprises. First up: those items that demand forward-planning, either because of personalisation or rarity. Think of it as our present to you. Joyeux Novembre.
