With December underway and snow on the ground in many parts of the UK, the countdown to Christmas Day can finally begin in earnest.

If you're panicking about finding the perfect present to get the caravan enthusiast in your life, then Towergate Insurance may have the ideal solution.

The brokers have teamed up with former Guardian cartoonist Matt Buck to give away a professional caricature, as drawn by Matt himself.

To get you in the mood, Matt has been drawing a series of caravan cartoons, which have taken on a distinctly festive theme of late.

The latest cartoon includes some slightly unusual visitors to a caravan park, looking a bit bemused at their strange new surroundings (click here for full-size image).

Anyone hoping to win a professional caricature for their loved one this Christmas can enter the competition for free over on the Towergate website, but you'll need to hurry - as the competition closes on Friday 9th December.
