Christmas Gift Guide: Under £5

Sunday, December 01, 2013
I have started a mini Christmas gift guide series for numerous price ranges - from this first post with gifts priced at £5 or under. There will be posts with gifts at £10 and £20. I am also going to create a gift guide post with some lavish, expensive gift selection and one on unique, quirky gifts too. In this post I have tried to include gifts for women, men, teens and older children.
1. Accessorize Concealer Kit (£5): The Pixiwoo sisters have mentioned their love for some of the Accessorize makeup products so they must be fairly good, especially for the price. This concealer kit looks quite benefit like in my opinion. It is a very comprehensive kit, it contains a yellow corrector, three shades of concealer and a finishing powder. The only negative point about this product is that it comes in a one shade fits all, there is only a light version as far as I can see. 

2. Topshop Movie Trivia Cards (£5): Who doesn't love a bit of trivia! I do! I think this would make a great little gift/stocking filler for men and movie buffs. There are other trivia sets from Topshop including: 90's tv, 90's music and a horror trivia set. 

3. Topshop Origami Napkins Set (£5): The one thing I miss about Christmas when I was a child is that you had toys and things to play with and now I get makeup, money and bath/body products which I love and I am very grateful for but there is nothing to do. I think this little origami set would be great for those dull moments around christmas were there is the same dull tv! 

4. Accessorize Knitted Reindeer Christmas Decoration (£4): Myself and my sister bought my mum a cute knitted penguin Christmas tree decoration last year and she loved it and it looks so cute - it makes a nice change to the boring baubles! There are lots of other to chose from. I think this would be a great gift to those who have just bought a new home or have moved to university as sister and some of my friends have done this year. 

5. Topshop Sock Zombie Kit (£5): Who doesn't want their own sock zombie....ok, I agree it is a strange concept! But is looks like a great gift and it is very unique. Also again as I said on the origami gift, it give you something to do on Christmas day. I think it would be a nice set for those who like DIY and also for younger teens (adult supervision is probably needed though). My sister bought one of her friends a knit your own ninja set last year and I wanted it for myself!

6. Paperchase Photo Cube (£4): A more sentimental gift now, a cute photo cube - you could add in photographs of yourself/friends/family. I think it would make a nice, nostalgic gift. There is a small one for £3 and a larger one for £12. 

7. Paperchase Gold Bear Money Box (£5): I have received numerous money boxes for Christmas over the years and this one has to be the cutest. This would be great for friends and children, in my opinion. There are so many cheap money boxes at Paper chase including a: skull, owl, moustasche, robot and lego block. 

There are my cheap and cheerful bargain picks for christmas gifts - they would be great for numerous ages and also for secret santa gifts and stocking fillers x

I am currently having a couple of minor issues with my blog, the 'home, about, contact and pr' links do not work - hopefully everything will be fully working by monday/tuesday. Also I have done a feature about my beauty secrets on London Beauty Hub's website, click here to see the feature!

  8. Absolutely love the money box! Would definitely make a cute addition to my desk! £5 isn't bad either, I expected it to cost more than that as it's from Paperchase.

    1. I found a lot of cheap gifts on paperchase, I didn't expect them to be so inexpensive x

  9. AWW that reindeer decoration is soooo sweet! Want it for my tree :)
