FINDING the right Christmas gift or stocking filler becomes a whole lot easier next Friday when Mistletoe magazine is published free with the Irish Independent and The Herald.

The annual glossy magazine this year contains 250 plus ideas for Christmas gifts, stocking fillers and last minute present buying and the ten pages of ideas drill down to specialist tastes, from beauty lovers and gadgets fiends to the foodies in your life.

The Christmas party season kicks off with eight pages of glamorous fashion, from the posh, long frock nights out to chic daywear and statement hats and accessories for going racing.

Interiors expert Helen Turkington joins her designer sister, Rae Feather, and offers suggestions on how to decorate your table with individual flair.  Cookery enthusiasts  will enjoy the wide selection of festive recipes and the Mistletoe line-up includes TV favourite, Kirstie Allsopp,  who shares her recipe for a delicious ham (a gift from her TV co-presenter, Phil Spencer), while Leylie Hayes, executive chef at Avoca, shows how to make the ultimate mince pie.

For the build up to the party season, we have entertaining tips including a New York-style brunch and Christmas cookies that you can bake, gift and even decorate with.

There's cocktails and Corinna's Hardgrave's guide to choosing the right wines and spirits and Pol O'Conghaile picks six of the best walks to blow the Christmas cobwebs away.

Enjoy the 72 page magazine which is packed with content and is a real keeper for the holidays.
