Christmas always seems to arrive sooner than expected leaving some of us scratching our heads for gift ideas or making a last-minute dash to the shops to purchase something you just know won’t bring any festive cheer.


But worry not, as the helpful little elves at the Fitzwilliam Hotel, Belfast, have gift cards that can be used for something on their 12 gifts of Christmas list and yes, they did check it twice.
