It’s of­fi­cial! De­spite my at­tempts to pre­tend other­wise, we’ve reached the pointy end of the year and we’re rapidly hurtling to­wards Christmas.

If you’re any­thing like me, that means writ­ing and re-writ­ing to-do lists and gift lists al­most daily and then won­der­ing how/why hardly any­thing’s been crossed out by the time Christmas Eve hits.

If you’re in a quandary about what to buy some of your near­est and dear­est or, more im­por­tantly, you still don’t know what to put on your own wish list, turn to page 6 – we’ve done all the hard work for you.

You’ll find ev­ery­thing from the best new healthy cook­books, to the coolest fit­ness ac­ces­sories and must-have beauty buys in our round-up of good-for-you gifts.

But if ex­pe­ri­ences are more your thing, or you know some­one who could re­ally do with a bit of me-time, check out our re­lax­ation-gift­ing op­tions on page 13.

Else­where in this is­sue, we ex­plore a gift no amount of money can buy – the gift of life. On page 8, the ex­tra­or­di­nary story of what led Grace O’Con­nell from Syd­ney to do­nate one of her kid­neys to her younger sis­ter Lily, will help to put all that ex­ces­sive wor­ry­ing over all the presents you haven’t bought into per­spec­tive.

Be­cause noth­ing says ‘I love you’ like giv­ing some­one a sec­ond chance at life.
