THE Christmas Gift Guide

(Cookie gift tag from here)
I know that finding a gift to suit and please every recipient is very very difficult, and it is sometimes hard to find inspiration in the chaos and panic - but never fear, Fern (the queen of the comprehensive OCD list) am here!
The websites listed below have a wide range of gift ideas, from mass produced to handmade, and from cheap stocking fillers to expensive one-offs. Some even have a mini quiz so that they can find those products best suited (give me an ooooooh!):
