There are two types of people in this world: those who start planning Christmas gifts for their nearest and dearest months in advance, and those who leave it to a last-minute panic-spree.
Luckily, we're here to help you choose just the right thing for your friends, family and partners, cutting out the slog so you can enjoy a mulled wine (or three).
Ahead, we've chosen the prettiest pieces for every budget, whether you're after a Secret Santa gift for your hard-to-please colleague or splashing out on someone who needs treating.
From Christmas party-appropriate sparkle to get-ahead-for-2019 organisers, click through to find pieces so tempting, you might want to pick one up for yourself, too.
