Oh, the stress of Christmas shopping. Some of us love the planing and getting of gifts; but for others, every festive season is permeated with a mild sense of dread. 'What will I get them? Will I remember to get it all? Oh no, I've forgotten my cousin/nephew/friend!' 

These situations are just what Amazon is for – with next-day or two-day delivery on most of its items, you can still complete your Christmas shopping list. We'd do it this week/weekend at the latest, just to be safe: after the 17th/18th December, delivery in time for Christmas may be tricky. And if you'll be travelling before Christmas Day itself, it's even more important to act quickly. 

Stuck for what to get them? Scroll down for our list of solid all-time favourites that will appeal to just about everyone.
