Okay, maybe we shouldn't be talking about Christmas just yet but before we know it the Late Late Toy Show will be upon us, award ceremonies at our local clubs and meeting up with friends you've been avoiding all year is right on top of you too.
So, now is the time to start planning. It doesn't mean you have to buy stuff just yet but you can at least be different to the 99 per cent of Irish people and not leave it to the last minute where you end up buying whatever the hell is left on the shelf.
Now, think of what is the most A-typical crowd-pleasing Christmas present you can buy someone? Yep, a lovely Christmas jumper.
