18 Dec The Wire’s Best Buys

There’s magic in the air and with it comes spending. With the combination of a little something extra in your pocket and calls from every corner telling you how best to “treat yo’ self”, it can be hard making an informed decision. Let’s forget about the Secret Santa’s and the last minute  novelty gifts bought begrudgingly for co-workers and distant relatives; our gift guide is something a little more special.

We’ve taken a look at everything that’s on the shelves right now and selected the cream of the crop.  Naughty or nice it doesn’t matter, everyone is welcome to take a look at our best buys for the holiday season.
