In the end, I always resort to last-minute shopping online.
So if you’re in the same boat, how about this for a gift idea?
It’s a new, full-colour edition of the bestselling Sicilian card games book.
There are 3 extra games in this gift edition which are not included in the black and white original.
It’s a larger format (8 x 10 inches).
There’s an expanded history of the origins of Sicilian card playing.
All the games are explained in the same clear style, with photos to make it even clearer.
Amazon can have it on your doorstep before Christmas, plus a pack of Sicilian playing cards as well.
However, if you love someone, but not enough to splash out on colour printing, the original black-and-white bestseller is still for sale at only $6.99 or £4.50.
