EVERYONE is surely well aware of the fact that Christmas is nearly upon us. Whether the majority of your shopping is done and you need a few extras, or you've yet to begin, here are a few ideas for some delightful festive treats.

This Christmas, LUSH have really gone all out. With a range of delicious items, from perfect stocking fillers to ready-made bundles, there's plenty of choice. The Gingerbread House bubble bar looks good enough to eat, and the spicy scent will warm you up on these icy nights, for £2.95.

Alternatively, the Candy Cane soap, with its sweet minty smell, is guaranteed to get you in the mood for Christmas for £.2.75.

If you are one of the many people who love buying the gifts but hate the wrapping that comes with it, then let LUSH do the work for you. They have over 20 ready-wrapped bundles of soaps, scrubs and more, all in beautifully decorated baskets or cases. Prices vary, but they won't disappoint, as there really is something for everyone.

Christmas is the only time that you can reasonably ask for things that you've longed for all year, but haven't had the money to buy. Add some perfumes and colognes to your Christmas list, and see what Santa brings. Harajuku Lovers 'Jingle G' perfume is perfect for Christmas, and even has a built in hook so it can be hung on the tree. Dressed in a red and white Santa suit, 'Jingle G' smells as sweet as she looks, with a fruity smell of tangerine, gardenia and white star fruit, for £11.99 from Superdrug.

For men, the new David Beckham 'Homme' is as Christmassy as fragrances come. Smelling of ginger, secheun pepper and citrus, the warm spicy scent combined with the refreshing blast of fruits is what winter is all about. The fragrance also comes with a Homme hair and body wash in the Boots gift set, for £19.95.

There's something for mum, dad, sister, brother and everyone else, so you're left with no excuse on Christmas morning. But don't take my word for it, go out and enjoy the Christmas shopping; it only comes once a year.
