You just can’t argue with Sir Cliff Richard when it comes to Christmas – he’s like a smiling, festive Chuck Norris. And the 70-something singer was spot on in 1988 cheesefest Mistletoe And Wine when he sang that Christmas is a ‘time for giving, a time for getting’.

That sentiment is truer than ever this year thanks to Currys/PC World’s £15million giveaway – only this time they’re doing all the giving and you’re doing all the getting!

The chummy electronics and computing giants are putting their hands in their collective pockets this festive season and honouring Sir Cliff’s sentiments by dishing out free presents to anyone who picks up a copy of their new Gift Guide.

Entering is easier than falling off a Yule log – you simply go to, type the unique number printed on the back into the website, cross your fingers and see what Santa’s elves have got for you.

With a massive £15million of products, money and vouchers to hand out, there’s a genuine chance you’ll walk away with a shiny new piece of tech to keep you entertained while Grandad snoozes through a rerun of the Great Escape.

Up for grabs are 50 Sandstrom 40” HDTVs, 200 Toshiba Folio 100 Tablet computers, 250 Panasonic Lumix DMC-FD2 digital cameras and 250 Nintendo DSi XL game consoles. If that wasn’t enough, there’s a massive pile of iPod Shuffles and Nanos, X Factor Lucky Voice Party Boxes, Sony PRS650 e-readers and Sandstrom digital photo frames to be handed out.

It’s an impressive range. The Sandstrom S40LDIB1O is a slick and sexy full HD LED TV with Sandstrom Media Adaptive Picture Engine technology and an uber-clear 100hz screen – all in a 35mm deep package. Toshiba’s Android-powered Folio 100 offers a 10 –inch multitouch screen, a 1.3 megapixel camera and full WiFi connectivity.

Even if you’re not lucky enough to win a gadget, there will be hundreds of cheques and nearly three million Currys/PC World vouchers given out. Whatever you get, you get something – everyone’s a winner.

If it sounds too good to be true, just remember that strange things do happen at this time of year. Mistletoe And Wine was the biggest selling track of 1988 after all – even beating Kylie Minogue & Jason Donovan in the process!

So grab yourself a Currys/PC World gift guide and give it a shot. The £15m giveaway might just leave you with that warm and fuzzy Christmas feeling – just like one of Sir Cliff’s jumpers.
