Yes, somehow Christmas is less than two weeks away. (We don't know how that happened, either.) But rather than rushing frantically around the familiar high street chains at the last minute, why not gift your loved ones with something made or sold locally?

At the end of another tough year for retailers, it's the perfect time to say thank you to the independents, makers and food producers bringing colour to our local high streets.

So, whoever you're buying for, here are some thoughtful gift ideas, available to buy both online or in-store locally this Christmas.
