Xmas can be tough on those of us without the time or the inclination to spend hours traipsing round the stores to a backdrop of Yule muzak, wearily contemplating which lingerie/socks/jumper will bring a little seasonal cheer to a loved one.

Thank Old Saint Nick then for Debenhams, whose online store is offering something a little different for the struggling gift hunter. True, Granny probably wouldn't much appreciate this "Christmas Surprise", but we reckon there are plenty who would get a real kick from an alternative to getting one's stocking stuffed:

cackle and a quick "Oooh Matron!" in the style of
