With Christmas around the corner it’s nice to think about finally starting or if you are super organised, the finishing touches of getting presents. If you are like me you leave it till the last minute because you have no idea what to buy and also you have a budget.
This list is all gifts which I think are fabulous if you are on a budget of about £20 or less. Some of the items have been gifted (but love) and will be marked with an * next to them. Others are just things I thought would work wonderfully in this gift guide. All of these gifts are Vegetarian/Cruelty-free.
Carfume Luxury Air Freshener * These are £11.99 each and they would make a wonderful gift for anyone who drives. They have loads of different fragrances to choose from including Christmas themed scents including this one which is called ‘Christmas tree’ and comes in a lovely green glass. The icing on the cake about these is that they are refillable.
Pixi Beauty Gift Sets * I have loved Pixi Skincare products for a couple of years now, they have a lovely selection of makeup and skincare to choose from. They have lots of gift sets to choose from (like above) with prices starting at a respectable £10!
Solait 50 SPF sensitive Face Lotion – Now this could be any choice SPF lotion but this is one of my favourites at just £4.49 a bottle. I dunno about you guys but the amount of people who don’t use SPF in colder months shocks me. SPF is something that should be used year-round because UV rays are always present. This lotion has a 5 star UVA and SPF 50 but any above 30 is fab.
Mini Candles/Wax Melts – If you are like me or have a person you want to gift for are a complete fusspot when it comes to candle fragrances then wax melts and small candles are a wonderful choice as you can change them easily without the cost and longevity of a big candle. You can mix and match these very cheaply as I find this kind of candles in my local home bargains for under £1. You can also find lots of lovely wax melts on Etsy from local sellers.
Box of chocolates – With so many choices out there you cannot go wrong. They are many varieties out there which makes them perfect as a gift for anyone. They are loads to choose from in supermarkets, Thortons and even hotel chocolate. My favourites at the moment are priced at £3.50 a box which is Lindor chocolate-delicious!
Fenty Beauty Stunna Lip Paint Longwear Fluid Lip Colour – I know these are on the higher end but wow I just love these liquid lipsticks! They are superb quality, longlasting and come in a variety of shades. They are online and in select boots stores at £20 (currently 15% off)
Antipodes Aura Manuka Honey Mask – Antipodes is a luxury skincare brand which is inspired by science and nature. This mask is wonderful as its a multipurpose moisturising, cleansing and antioxidizing treatment which helps keeps the skin blemish-free and hydrated. You can get a mini of the full size for £6.95 (15ml).
Caroline Hirons Skincare The Ultimate No-Nonsense Guide – Are you getting tired of repeating yourself when people ask you for skincare advice? Gift them a book on looking after the skin. I love this book as its easy guide to taking care of skin whatever the need.
