Let’s be honest, we’ve all left stuff last minute for Christmas in the past (and for some of us, this year is no different). HOWEVER, the wonderful thing about next day delivery is that running round the shops on Christmas Eve is a thing of the past! To give you a nudge in the right direction with the big day a week away, we’ve rounded up the best last minute gifts for this festive season.

1. For Food-Related Accessories: Novel Mart  

What: Novel Mart ‘Mortadella’ Cap

The Lowdown: Novel Mart offers a wide range of statement slogan apparel with cosy hoodies, comfy sweatshirts, and tongue-in-cheek tote bags all emblazoned with your favourite cult tipples or foods (there’s everything from Cacio e Pepe to Negroni, Dim Sum to Pinot Noir). We’re a particular fan of the Mortadella cap, because A) we love the slow-cooked Italian spiced sausage and B) Sopranos.
