BEST GIFTS: Micro scooters, board games, books and craft

IF YOU haven't yet finished your holiday shopping - or even started - you're not alone.

With a few days until Christmas the shops are packed with people scrambling to find the perfect last-minute gifts.

Carey Horner from Lismore Toy Kingdom said they have been completely run off their feet.

"Our best sellers this year have been the outdoor game Finska, which was also one of our best-sellers last year,” Mr Horner said.

"Really good sales in the infant B. Toys range, and we've sold more micro scooters this year than any other year, and we've also had great sales with the new girls' craft ranges (such as make your own natural lip balm kit).

"Another great product is the balance board.”

He said the knock-out sellers had been family board games, but the best seller for the third year in a row was not particularly a family game - Cards Against Humanity.

A good book is always a winner. Lea Wilson from The Book Warehouse had a few tips: Nevermoor by Jessica Townsend and Tales From A Tall Forest, by Shaun Micallef are in the best-sellers for kids and Lincoln in the Bardo by George Saunders and Burke and Wills by Peter FitzSimons are among the hottest picks for adults this year.
