December has finally arrived, and the one thing on everyone's mind is what to buy their friends, family or colleagues. So here are the best buys this year ...

But panic is over as BANG Showbiz are lending a helping hand to those struggling with gift ideas this Christmas.

As the festive period is filled with Christmas parties and glitzy balls to celebrate the New Year, there is nothing better to receive than the new beauty or skincare products.

Benefit have an array of cosmetic gift sets suitable, and their City Lights Party Nights collection is the one to go for as it includes My Brow pencil, Dandelion blusher, They're Real! mascara in jet black, and They're Real! double the lip product in nude scandal.

The Benefit set also includes a metallic make-up bag, and the entire kit is worth almost £50, although it retails for almost half the price at £28.

Sleek have also collated this season's best cosmetic items in their Bring on The Night collection, which features the iDivine Eyeshadow Palette in Vintage romance, as well as a palette filled with highlighting products, and a three-piece blusher set, which retails for £30.

And if that was not enough Mark Hill's When the Girls Go Out the Curls Come Out set, which is complete with a mini curler, radial brush and curling spray for £30, is this season's must-have for any woman to pamper themselves during the party season.

But for those looking for simple and sophisticated stocking filler can rely on Deborah Lippmann, who has created a string of nail varnish sets, all of which include two of their best-selling yet festive polishes.

The Shining Star ornament, which costs £18, is the best go-to for the winter season as it features a sparkly white shade and an uber feminine metallic pale pink shade.

And so not to leave out the men in your life Body Shop's Shave Away Kit for King's and Gentlemen for just £15 will work a treat.

The kit is simple yet effective as it features Men Maca Room Shave Cream, as well as an authentic shaving brush, but it is the packaging that steals the show as it is decorated like a pack of cards.

For couples who are looking to coordinate forever more can opt for Daniel Wellington's gift sets.

Both the men's and women's products are complete with a watch as well as a matching cuff bracelet, which range from £129 to just under £160 depending on the size of the arm candy.

But for those who are looking for a luxury gift without the jaw-dropping price tag should look to Jo Loves, as there is something for everyone; from fragrances, bath and body products and scented candles to fun experiences such as Fragrance Tapas to the Candle Shot studio where you can give the gift of creating a candle.

Jo Loves merchandise may leave you spoilt for choice, so for the indecisive buyers we recommend the limited edition festive candles, in particular the Christmas Tree candle, which has notes of fresh pine, aromatic lavender, incense and amber infused together to give off a sweet smell that instantly makes the entire home and not just one room feel cosy, festive and warm.

And let's not forget the little ones, who will be desperate to see the Peppa Pig Interactive Play Mat under the tree on December 25.

The interactive floor mat is ideal for children aged three years old and above as there are four modes; 'Peppa Says', a numbers game, 'Where is? ' and a sing-along game, which will leave kids amused for hours, and at a reduced price of £14.99 at Argos what is not to love?
