Cyber Monday is an excellent time to get ahead on gifts for the holiday season, or splurge on a just-because present for someone who needs it. We've seen some stunning gifts, from small and big retailers alike, which would go down a storm with the creatives in our lives. 

If you know an artist, they would be delighted with these Derwent Procolour colouring pencils, reduced by 40 per cent right now at Amazon (opens in new tab). But we've also found gifts at Not On the High Street and Etsy, which will delight adults and children alike (like the dinosaur puppets pictured above). Plus, some perfectly-priced Lego!
