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. 

Charbonnel et Walker Pink Champagne Truffles

Charbonnel et Walker Pink Champagne Truffles | £15

If they like chocolates, they'll love these. If they think they don't like chocolates, they'll still love these. Boozy and sophisticated, these Champagne truffles are a festive staple – and the pink box is so pretty. The perfect stocking filler. 

Yankee Candle Christmas Gift Set

Yankee Candle Christmas Gift Set | Was £72, now £34.99

There's a festive scent for everyone in this generous gift set, which is on sale for an amazing price. There are the Christmas favourites such as Gingerbread, Cinnamon and Black Cherry, but also the delightfully fresh Spruce and Angel's Wings. A candle snuffer is also included.  

Laurent Perrier Cuvee Rose Non Vintage Champagne in Gift Box

Laurent Perrier Cuvee Rose Non Vintage Champagne in Gift Box | Was £63.99, now £45.99

A festive favourite with our team at Real Homes, the Laurent Perrier champagne is as good as any we've tried, and is not nearly as expensive as lots of other Champagnes. The vintage-style curvy bottle makes it even more gift worthy. 

Kindle Paperwhite

Kindle Paperwhite | Was £119.99, now £99.99 

Perfect for anyone who likes reading – even if they prefer physical books. The Paperwhite successfully mimics real paper in the way in reflects light, even in bright sunshine. And it's waterproof, which is great for reading by the pool/at the beach.

Fitbit Versa 2

Fitbit Versa 2 | £199.99

We all know what comes after Christmas excesses: New Year's resolutions to be fitter, healthier, and so on. These resolutions are surprisingly easier to keep when you have a (nice-looking) incentive. The Fitbit is great at providing that – and it's useful for busy people who need to reply to messages on the go (or on the run).
