LAST-MINUTE VIRTUAL CHRISTMAS GIFTS


If you are struggling for ideas or have run out of time to get Christmas presents, these are gifts that you can buy online, then print out and pop in an envelope - no shopping trip, no gift wrapping, no fuss. From quirky subscriptions to hot event tickets, there is something in my edit for everyone in your life.


If you have a music lover amongst your friends and family, concert tickets will always go down well. Here in Glasgow we have the epic SSE Hydro arena, which is an experience in itself. For concerts in Glasgow or your city, Ticket Select is a one-stop portal where you can see what's on - from smaller band's gigs to epic arena tours from the world's biggest artists. Buy them, print out the confirmation and you have a great gift.

I am obsessed with Readly - it's an app where you can read digital editions of literally every magazine you can think of for just £7.99 per month. When most of the magazines I read - Marie Claire etc are over £4 each, this is an amazing deal. If you know someone who loves fashion or crafting or home interiors, this is a perfect gift for them that will save them a fortune in magazine buying.

A really quirky but beautiful subscription to sign someone you love up for is Not Another Bill. This is a gift that will keep on giving, as they'll get a surprise luxury gift in the post every month for 3-12 months. Print out the confirmation, put it in an envelope and get them excited for January.

If you want to do some good this Christmas, why not buy the one you love a box of chocolates and spend the money that you would have spent on them on a young homeless person with the help of Centre Point. You choose how much you want to give and the site will show you what your donation will buy - from toiletries and a Christmas dinner to a room - and they will send an e-card to your loved one telling them the good it will do.

Finally, an Amazon e-gift card is a great option that will suit everyone as they can spend it on everything from books to food and fashion. Print out their voucher code and all they need to do is apply it to their own Amazon account to get the credit you've put on.
