For less than a tenner? That's our secret Santa sorted.

With less than 90 days to go 'til Christmas (yep, we counted), M&S aren't messing around with their hotly-anticipated festive food range.

Amongst plenty of gift-worthy options (think: light-up hot chocolate lanterns and cute praline-filled milk and blonde chocolate gnomes), is this starry night shortbread selection projection tin.

That's right, M&S may have broken the internet with its light-up gin globes last year (which famously had to be limited to one per customer, after savvy shoppers started flogging them on eBay), but they've taken things up a whole notch for 2022 with this shortbread selection, which plays a Christmas tune and rotates to cast a starry night scene on your walls.

Oh, and that's before we get to the downright delicious contents... all butter and chocolate chunk shortbread, FYI. For less than a tenner, we can't think of a better gift for the office secret Santa this year.

Of course, if you do fancy saving cash and making your own homemade Christmas biscuits, you can always rely on our recipe for crowd-pleasing shortbread cookies and classic biscotti (just pop in a box, add some ribbon and voila).
