50 Last Minute Gifts Under £50 for Everyone

I met someone a couple of days ago who told me all their Christmas pressies were wrapped and ready.  Good for them.  In my family it’s not unheard of for one of the sons or the daughter to call a couple of days beforehand and ask if they can bring a stray to stay with them.  I like Christmas to be the more the merrier.  Not for us a quiet small family table, but everyone from great grandmother to the newest arrival to a friend from the village who might otherwise eat alone.  On one condition, that everyone mucks in.

So unless you’re all wrapped and ready, and in case that extra person turns up, and just in case you’ve left someone off your list, or you want something on hand for emergencies, here are 50 last minute gifts, one of which would do for anyone you know and all under £50.

The delivery services are of course under huge strain this week so my advice is to leave it no later than Tuesday, Wednesday if you absolutely have to.  And if you order on Wednesday pay for guaranteed delivery.
