It might not quite be November yet, but it's never too early to bag a bargain and make sure your presents are safely wrapped and ready for the tree in time for December 25th.
This year it's not just fairy lights and egg nog that can give you a warm glow; buying gifts from www.dogstrustgifts.com means you can know you're helping dogs as well as buttering up friends and relatives with gorgeous doggy gifts. So every time you buy a present, you're really giving twice!
As well as a whole host of web exclusives, such as cute Border Collie Doorstops, half price at just £4.99, there's a great selection of snowy Christmas cards featuring pooches galore - my favourite is the Carol Singing Dogs! Other favourites include dog breed mugs and 2010 calendars featuring a range of breeds from Lurchers to Labradors and Collies to Cavalier King Charles Spaniels. The profits from every gift will go towards helping the dogs in our care.
I know our shopping bags are popular because I often get asked about them on our social networking pages; rest assured you can also nab these online, along with a host of other Dogs Trust branded goods.
With the post a little wobbly, it's a great time to start your shopping in plenty of time for the festivities, and know that you're helping dogs as you do.
