1. Get prize thighs, legs, shoulders and rumps at the annual Hart’s of Smithfield Christmas Auction. Try your luck at the traditional coin toss, call it right, and you might walk away with a free hunk of meat. Rise and swine, the auction starts at 10.30am.
2. If you’re looking for last-minute presents, make a beeline Southbank Centre Wintertime Market. Those riverside chalets are bursting with pottery, lanterns and most importantly, street food.
3. Head to the Blackhorse Sideshow for the final day of the ‘Makers Presents’ exhibition this Saturday, where you'll find whacky immersive installations. Need present-buying inspiration? No problem, just spin the Nifty Gifter wheel.
