Hey, I know it's early but what else are you going to do. All these places have a terrific range of items, the below are just examples.

I saw an Instagram post recently that said 'Instead of boosting Amazon's profits, you could ask friends and family for a voucher for a local business - bookshops, restaurants, salons, cinemas, craft stores, arts venues. Whatever you're into. Hopefully, we can help them still be here next year.' I thought that was a neat idea.
