It's that time of year again...

If you are stuck for gift ideas for family/friends, look no further than our round-up of the best books for Christmas. From psychological thrillers to women's fiction, autobiographies to cookbooks (and everything in between), there really is something for everyone.

And, as ever, we are giving one lucky person the chance to win everything featured on the page...worth over £800. All you have to do is tell us, on this thread, who you'd most like to find under your tree this Christmas (and why).

We will be drawing a winner at random at midday on Monday 16 December. Terms and conditions apply - more details on the page.

I would love to spend another Christmas with my father. He always knew how to make the festive season such fun, even though he was thwarted at every turn by my mother! Just one more Christmas with him would make December complete.

Just my hubby. I couldn't want for more. We celebrated our Golden Wedding Anniversary in August by renewing our wedding vows in Boston Stump where we were wed. It was a very emotional but memorable day. I am a very lucky lady and am looking forward to the next 50 years with the love of my life!!!!!!!!

I would love to find Hugh Jackman under my tree. He can sing, he can dance and from seeing him in concert and watching several interviews he has done, he seems like such a nice genuine guy smile

I would love to see an the dogs I've ever owned under the tree! Very big tree!

They have all been so precious and beloved to me and it would be so wonderful to have one more day with them all.

Be about 20 I think!

Let's hope they'd get on!
