    1. First things first, you need to get planning! This Christmas organiser will help you get ready for the big day, ensuring everything will run smoothly. It features a present planning section, and somewhere to put all your recipes.

    2. For many of us, it's the first Christmas in over a year that we're spending with our family, and that means everyone will be expecting a showstopper turkey! This large roasting tin lets any liquid drain into the bottom so you can easily use it later to make gravy.

    3. You can also give this stainless steel baster a try. It comes with a syringe to make sure every bit of the turkey is covered.

    4. Never sure if the turkey is actually done or not? If so, this meat thermometer is a must-have. It has an easy-to-read digital display, and it automatically turns off when you fold it up.

    5. So, the turkey is ready, your guests are hungry, and all you need to do is somehow get it off the tray and onto a plate. Well, these lifting forks make the whole process much simpler! Now no one will have to clean up any dropped turkey.

    6. These small stainless steel tongs make it easier for everyone to serve themselves, so you can sit down and relax after all that cooking!

    7. If any of your guests are fussy eaters, this meal planner will help you organise everyone's preferences! It's magnetic so it can easily be attached to the fridge door, meaning your guests are able to make any suggestions too.

    8. This gravy separator ensures that none of the fat ends up in your gravy, leaving it full of flavour – your guests are bound to be impressed. It's much less stressful and more convenient.

    9. Prepare yourself for that big Christmas clean with this Method kitchen cleaner. It gets rid of any grease and grime in your kitchen, and has a festive clementine scent. The ingredients are plant based, meaning they're non-toxic too.

    11. This handheld vacuum is great for picking up any last-minute crumbs before your guests arrive, including the ones in between the sofa cushions!

    12. To make sure your house stays clean, your guests can take their shoes off and place them in these shoe drip trays. Let's be honest, muddy floors would really ruin the festive spirit.

    13. These metal Command hooks allow your guests to hang their coats up if you don't want your cupboard to get too messy. They don't damage the wall and can hold up to 1.8kg.

    15. This giant Christmas sack can be used to store all your presents ready for the big day. It's also big enough to collect all of the wrapping paper, avoiding any overwhelming mess!

    16. To make sure your table looks as festive as possible, get these metallic charger plates. Not only will they make your home look ready for Christmas, but they will also protect your table from hot plates.

    17. For the Christmas table to flow smoothly, there's often some sort of tetris situation trying to fit loads of plates on. If that's the case in your home, this bamboo cheese board is extremely handy. It has plenty of room for all the festive treats, as well as a small utensil holder!

    18. Another smart way to save space is this slate serving platter. It's the perfect size to place sauces or nibbles on the table, without getting in the way of your guests.

    22. This sherpa fleece blanket is equally as cosy, so your guests can snuggle up near the fire after Christmas dinner!

    23. Earn extra host points with these festive face cloths. They're made from pure cotton, making them super soft.
