We’ve all experienced the last-minute panic – dashing down the high street like a headless turkey – and what for? A last-minute stocking filler? Her favourite perfume? The almost-sold-out mega-toy rumoured to be the last one left in the next town? Fresh mint (because a jar of sauce just “won’t do”…)? It’s a race against time. Personal reputations are at stake!
Or are they? Really? Or is it just a tyranny? Do your friends a favour… take the sting out of the Christmas tale. Tell them how much being with them matters more than all those things. They make Christmas perfect.
