There's a last-minute shopper in all of us. Birthdays, weddings, baby showers and even Christmas seem to jump out of the calendar with no prior warning - and all you can do is panic.

But before you run to the nearest store to buy a non-descript present for a close friend, consider the Luxury Gift Company. The company is built upon the tenet that convenient shopping is better shopping, and no one likes having to battle crowds when they can simply go online and click away with their mouse. The website has categorised gifts, from baby presents to wedding offerings, and can even have chocolates flown in fresh from Belgium. All items are hand-wrapped and delivered by a smartly uniformed member of staff to the door of the recipient. On top of its regular range, the company stocks special seasonal gifts for events such as St Valentine's Day. It also plans to

expand the range by October to accommodate Christmas shoppers.

So if you want to ensure your name stays on your friends' Christmas card lists, get clicking.
