CHEESE AND WINE (above) JL: "Sick of people trying to get one up on you with their christmas dinner bird choice? send them one of these, they'll soon get the message."

XMAS DINNER JL: "Everyone's looking to cut costs this year, where better to start than with Christmas Dinner itself? Eat it straight out of the can then there's no washing up or titting around with the oven. We recommend one can per guest."

MAY THE SPIRIT OF CHRISTMAS FILL YOUR HOME JL: "Don't peak too early, at least get a bit of toast down you before the first drink."

SEASONAL MOOD JL: "Keeping a baseball bat by the front door is a good idea anytime of year, but during the festive period it's bang on essential."
