So far you’ve thoroughly enjoyed this year’s festive season. You’ve spent a couple of very happy, mulled wine hazed afternoons soaking up the atmosphere at the Christmas markets, you’ve carefully coordinated your tree decorations (all out baroque this year, SO Dolce & Gabbana) and best of all, you’ve switched your usual bowl of cereal breakfast for a daily dose of advent calendar chocolate. The only slight issue is that there are now only seven more advent calendar chocolates to go until the big day which not only means only seven more indulgent chocolate breakfasts, but also just seven little days to buy all those gifts… It’s time to put down the chocs and pick up your game – the DSTS Christmas Gift Fairy is here to find the perfect present for everyone from your boss to your beau to your best girls. All you need to do is make a list of all your favourite people, match them to their A-list alter ego and voila, a list of presents to set their hearts aflutter…
