Quite honestly if you have finished your Christmas shopping by now you are worrying me a little. But I know there are some last minute present buyers out there, crowding up Oxford Street on my way home from work. Or there are those who may have finished their shopping weeks ago but are thinking of treating that loved one to a little something extra to put under the tree. Either way the gift guides are still coming so here is my pick of a few little novelty gifts that you should still be able to pick up or order in time for the big day...

One for the Instagram lovers out there! These photo frames turn your photographs in to magnetic Polaroids. There's 5 in a pack and they fit 3x4 sized photos. 

These days no one seems to print out their photos anymore. They're all stored on our laptops, phones, Facebook but when is the last time you flicked through a real life photo album? Urban Outfitters has some great, dare I say 'quirky', photo albums available at the moment so it's a little more fun. Maybe not one to bring out and show the grandparents mind. 

A nice little stocking filler or secret santa gift for the girl, or boy, who likes a little drink. Or the friend who mixes vodka with a couple of juices and calls it a cocktail. We've all been there. This way they can actually learn some fancy cocktails to impress their guests next time they're hosting the party. 

Who new Nutella wasn't just to be spread on toast for a quick breakfast? The Nutella recipe book has 30 pinterest worthy recipes from milkshakes to cheesecakes. I'm can feel the chocolate cravings kicking in just thinking about it. 

2013 was the year of the onesies. 2014 is the year of the seflie stick. I'm sure many people will find one of these in their stockings this year so if you know someone who is either in to technology and gadgets or,  quite frankly, just loves taking photos of themselves then this is one for them. Sure it may be the ultimate accessory to vanity but you wouldn't want your selfie obsessed friend to miss out would you?

It's been on t-shirts, pyjamas and now the famous Beyonce quote can be found a mug. Perfect for your morning coffee when you really wish you didn't actually wake up like that. 

Christmas wouldn't be Christmas without some festive socks and Topshop always supplies the goods. Little gingerbread men and houses on our feet? CUTE. 

Build your own stag head, or get your friends to build their own stag head, as a little festive addition to their home. Sure you could probably get a ready made stag head somewhere, but where's the fun in that? 

Have you finished your Christmas shopping yet? Which novelty gift is your favourite?
