EDGAR advice: the gifts to get her this Christmas

December 15, 2014

We all love Christmas, but if there's one thing that can ruin the most magical day of the year, it's buying the wrong present for your other half. If you're lucky she might put on a fake smile and try to make you feel better about your hopeless gift; at worst, it could turn into a full-blown festive row. With time quickly running out, you'd better act soon to avoid trauma before the turkey. If you're struggling for inspiration, here are some gifts that any woman would love to find in her stocking:
