Christmas is racing closer and closer and Secret Santa will no doubt be being muttered. The budget is often £10 or less, or sometimes with closer friends, £20 or less. I have listed my favourite presents for £10 or under, the £25 and under will be popping up on my blog on Wednesday and under £100 on Friday. Everything I have featured just happens to be beauty related but be sure to scroll to the bottom to see some more unisex friendly goodies. These presents are also amazing for teacher gifts.
Christmas in the UK is a chilly time of year, as is the months following which means that it is bath season! Yep, that’s a thing (well it should be). We need to keep warm and relax after shivering all day (Make sure you read my 5 Steps To A Perfect Bath for a few helpful tips). With this is mind, bath oils are an amazing gift and even more amazing when they come packaged the way Ren and Beatitude have packaged theirs, crackers and Christmas tree appropriate hanging boxes. The reason I especially like these two brands is that there are no nasties in their oils and their scents are all natural essential oils with no fake nasty scents.
REN BATH OIL • BEATITIDE CRACKER
Soaps are such an easy present to give. It isn’t too personal where you need to know someones personality to know what to buy. Everyone uses soap and when it comes gift wrapped this beautifully it makes for such a lovely present. My absolute favourite is the Seasons Greetings soap because it smells very strongly on cinnamon which is my staple festive scent. One of these soaps in a tin and a Lindt Father Christmas would be a perfect teacher present. I actually stood by a mum in Waitrose last week who was really struggling to find a “teacher” gift, if only she had seen my blog 😉
SEASONS GREETINGS • COOKIE TINS
Ready made gift sets which are filled with lots of goodies like these ones below are always such an amazing present. They work especially well for Secret Santa gifting because you get so much for your money. All of the gifts below are under £10…except for the Burt’s Bees quad pack which is £11.99…I just had to sneak it into this selection to go alongside its duo friend. I had no idea until last month that Fat Face did beauty products, and that they have the leaping bunny certification which makes me want to leap about and shout about such loveliness. I do think that next year is going to see more and more companies heading down this eco route. Fat Face have this heart bauble with knickers inside and my personal favourite is the box with crackers in which have bath fizzes. If you are feeling a little short changed you could even buy this £6.50 box and split the crackers up for stocking fillers.
BURTS BEES DUO • BURTS BEES QUAD
FAT FACE PANTIES • FAT FACE BATH FIZZ
