Each year tech companies will try and tell you what gadgets to get for Christmas by blabbing on about RIM, RAM and terrabytes. Yawn. And don't even get us started on the pink and sparkly gifts of season's past. But fear not - hopefully no returns will be necessary if you write this year's letter to Santa with a little help from Lady Geek.
The average spend on the other half this year will be £61, and almost one in six will be choosing not to buy their partner a present, while another 6% of people will be shopping for a gift that is under £10. This is going to be a very austere Christmas, as the cuts will find us looking to even save the pennies in the Christmas Pudding.
