I have just about finished my Christmas shopping. This is more by accident than design. I don't have to buy for many, so I can get the stuff in easily. A few presents are magazine subscriptions (the gift that keeps on giving, and giving and giving and giving and it always takes four attempts to cancel any subscription). Most of the rest of the presents are alcohol. It is a reassuring thought that so many gifts can be taken care of by something 40% proof.
