Christmas Gift Guide: Under £20

It's that time of year where we've got that task of picking out gifts for our loved ones to suit our budgets. Today I'm showing my pick of the bunch, all under £20! 

First up, I'm talking Chocolate. I mean, who doesn't like chocolate? (I know one person, and you know who you are... but it's weird). I'm not a chocoholic, I'm not obsessed with it, but I do like a little bit every now and again. Enter in the Advent Calendars and its Christmas and Chocolate smushed together, what's not to love? Like I said, I'm not a regular chocolate lover so I wouldn't eat an advent calendar in the conventional 'one a day' way and that's okay. Why not pick up one of these Lindt Advent calendars* pictured, they're super cute and they taste amazing!

For hair, I've got my eyes firmly on this cute gift set, the So...? Salon Secrets Mini Dry Shampoo* set. Super cute and super affordable, plus there really great products! Another great one is this eyeshadow palette for the bright coloured lovers amongst us, it's the Superdry Pop Eyes Palette* and it's so cute! Who knew Superdry did makeup? I certainly didn't! 

If I'm ever not sure what to get someone, Lush is ALWAYS my go-to store. They do the nicest gift sets! For my under £20 gift, I went for the Poptastic Set*. It includes the Cinders Bath Bomb and the Shoot For The Stars Bath Bomb, a definite one for all of the bath lovers out there and I'm hoping to find this sitting under the tree waiting for me... 

Pixi is a brand I've loved for a while. I remember being obsessed with their pink tinker bell polish and  it's been a brand on my radar ever since although recently they slipped my mind until I got my hands on these babies. The Pixi Shea Butter Lip Trio* is great for basically any lady out there. These are such useable products, and can work well on anyone as they're super sheer. Can you tell I'm a fan? If you know anyone that loves glitter then the Pixi Fairy Dust Favourites Stack* will be right up their street. Imagine a beautiful nude/brown smokey eye with a whole lotta sparkle. This is it. This is what you need. 

I've recently become obsessed with the brand Cheeky, more so for their salon treatments, but once I found out they had their own range of beauty products, I was on it as quick as you can say Christmas... (Good theory, right?) This set of 3 of their Body products in their Rough To Buff set* is a goodn' for well, anyone. It includes a Body Buff, Shower Jelly and Body Balm, and, how cute is the packaging?!

I absolutely love some of the Bleach sets that have been coming out and I got my hands on the Bleach London Phone Case set with Stuffed Nit Key Ring*, so comical...

Last but not least, I thought I'd give a quick mention to something that came through my mail box very recently and that's A service that lets you print your Instagram images onto wrapping paper*. Perfect for any Instagram obsessives out there, or perhaps you want to make some of your own custom Christmas wrapping paper. It's so cool! 

So that's it, all of the bargainous gift sets I've managed to get my hands on, but if in doubt, there's always ALL of the amazing beauty gift sets around. Just check Boots or Lush and you'll find what you're looking for!

What's on your Christmas list?

  4. I saw the Bleach London phone case in Boots a few weeks ago, and thought it was totally adorable - which is weird considering its a nit, haha! I've been using the Bleach colours on my hair for almost a year now, and they're amazing, I love the cool little christmasy gifts they have bought out this year, including a create your own snow globe kit!! I took photos of everything and sent it to my mum, with the subject title 'BUY ME PLZ' I wonder if she'll get the hint! Hahaha

  5. Ahhh the instagram wrapping paper is amazing! I now want everything from this gift guide!
