Yes, it’s true: it’s that time again. It may still seem a distant blip on the horizon but Christmas comes shockingly fast, and before you know it there’s one day to go and you still haven’t finished drawing up your present list. Of course, the earlier you start planning, the earlier you get to start enjoying yourself, so in the interests of happy holiday-making, below is the first of six groups of gift recommendations designed not only to delight their recipients but also to make your life easier. This week: items that either take time or demand attention sooner rather than later. Buy now, and enjoy the kudos later.
