We usually think of Christmas time as the main present and gift buying season – this of course starts just after Easter as far as the shops are concerned.  There never seems to be a gap between the seasons now and just as soon as one event has come upon us, and all the organising has been done, food enjoyed, presents exchanged, etc, then the next one is there waiting in the wings!  This is very noticeable from the myriad of magazines that greet us as we race into the supermarket.  There lined up for us are glossies all urging us to buy this, try that, become expert in this hobby or another.

When it comes to getting the right gift for a particular person, these magazines can actually offer some great ideas.  They have so many different sections now and each offers a new theme.  Going online to giftware supply sources can be brilliant too.
