A Happy Christmas recipe in seven easy steps...

1. Start the day with the best of morning coffees chosen by James Hoffman from The World Atlas of Coffee (Mitchell Beazley). 

2. Stocking fillers needn't be bulky, and there are best-selling Christmas eBooks that don't take up any space at all. For festive spirit try Robert Bryndza's A Very Coco Christmas and Tilly Tennant's Mishaps and Mistletoe (both Amazon).

3. Turn on the TV, watch the Strictly Come Dancing Christmas Special and mourn the loss of Steve Backshall. Or try Gogglebox instead (Canongate).

4. Eat a small, rich fruitcake with Nigel Slater (Fourth Estate)

5. Drink Cherry Wine with Andy Hamilton (Booze for Free, Transworld)

6. Curl up before bed with a classic tale for Christmas - The Sleeper and the Spindle by Neil Gaiman and Chris Riddell, or Chris Priestley's different take on A Christmas Carol in The Last of the Spirits (both Bloomsbury) or The Frog Prince by Sophie Ranald (Amazon).

7. And when you're finally prepared to start the New Year, make up for the indulgences of Christmas with Kate Harrison's The 5:2 Good Food Kitchen (Orion) and Cut the Crap by Ruth Field (Sphere). It will be Christmas again before you know it.
