Gifts under £20
Gifts under £20
We don't know about you, but to us it feels like Christmas shopping is in full swing. Maybe not for everyone just yet, but for many it seems that starting earlier and spreading out the cost a little has been the way to go this year, along with an increase in bargain hunting. Well, why not? We may as well get our moneys worth, right? With that said, the first in our series of gift guides this year is simply this: our favourite gifts for under £20. with a nice variety of goodies, we hope this gives you some inspiration for gifts that wow for costs that don't break the bank.
First up,we had to start with a product that has been proving popular consistently since we got them: the cowboy boot matches. We're still not sure what it is about them (although it's probably simply because they're pretty cool), but people love them! They make for a unique gift that we're sure your recipient won't already have, that also proves to be useful as they'll hold matches at the ready for getting the candles going. Or to mix it up again, we've just recently got the sibling product: cowboy hat incense holders. These give a more moody cosy feel to a room and again make a quirky and fun present. They both retail at £15.
Now, we know this can get overlooked as a gift for it's reputation of being 'boring' or not needed, but it wouldn't feel like a gift guide without a mug. And the Keith Brymer-Jones mugs aren't just any old mug. They're different, they're fun, and yet they're still really practical and an ideal size for a cuppa. Our favourite is the new grumpy mug, or the new twat mug. Great for the grumpy twats in your life! (said with love of course). All £14.95 each.
This next product is actually dead on £20, but we just love it so much we couldn't resist sneaking it in. It's the St Eval Christmas pillar candles. Not only do they smell utterly gorgeous and literally like Christmas in a candle, they also look it too. Subtle, but still a festive look that brings a little sparkle into any room. They come packaged in a beautiful box too, so it really feels like more than your ordinary candle gift.
A good notebook or journal is always a safe bet for a gift in our opinion, especially for any stationery lovers out there. Because so often we just use scraps of paper, or an old notebook we find in a drawer. So a good quality one such as the Standard Issue journals we have from Designworks (£18), feels like a real treat to receive. Or there are other, smaller notebooks from Designworks that are gorgeous, plus notebooks from Bookaroo, or Peter Pauper Press that are lovely, most being under £20. Browse the stationery area of our website to see more!
Finally, our fifth contender in this weeks gift guide is the humble cracker tin. At just £11, this is one of those great gifts that starts simple but can be made into a truly lovely one quite easily. Once you've got your cracker tin, all you need to do is fill it with some great quality cheese and chutney and you're done! A great gift for foodies, and a great gift for those you might feel have everything, because onces it's eaten, it's pretty much gone. We recommend the cracker tins year after year as they're just great gifts.
So those are our top 5 presents for under £20, but there are so many more throughout our website. Other favourites of ours includes some new hot water bottles, some of our great coffee table and cook books, beauty bits like face cloths and manicure sets, more stationery bits, lovely lights and so much more.
