Christmas is coming! Christmas is coming! Have you started buying your presents yet?

If you are super-organised (ie... if you're a woman) then this is a great place to do some Christmas shopping because it's full of beautiful and unusual gifts ideas that you won't find on the high street. If you're a man then don't worry... there are still another thirty shopping days left before you have to start thinking about getting gifts.

"Simply Christmas" will give you plenty of seasonal gift ideas, and offer lots of festive food and drink for sale, alongside some workshops and crafting demonstrations.

Basically... this is for people who want to make their Christmas that extra bit special, with some great gift ideas that will actually make people smile (instead of doing those fake smiles when they unwrap another pair of thermal socks).
