Books make the perfect gift - and if you are stuck for ideas then look no further than our Best Books for Christmas feature - there's something for everyone, whether they're into fiction, non-fiction, photography, baking...

We are giving away every book featured on the page to one lucky person*. To enter the prize draw, simply tell us what three things you always get in for Christmas (and that Christmas wouldn't be Christmas without grin) Post on this thread before midday on Wednesday 13 December for a chance to win. You can find more about T&Cs etc on the page itself.

*A previous winner asked whether they might split the prize with a runner-up. If you win and this is your preference that's absolutely fine - you just need to let us know when we get in touch.
