It’s the most wonderful time of the year! Well, except if you get constant colds and cold sores like me, and then it’s the most wonderful, yet very sneezy, time of the year. I’m a little late with my gift guides due to a billion reasons but I really hope you all love what I’ve pulled together but I really adore every single item in my gift guides this year. It’s been weeks of work and lots of fun. I’ve always loved Christmas, I love surprising and spoiling my family. Picking out the most thoughtful and fun gifts, but they don’t always have to be pricey. Here’s my Christmas gift ideas for £25 and under!
Let’s start with the crackers. Last year I bought everyone a beauty cracker for the Christmas table and they went down a treat! I love that this year my favourite brands have beauty crackers, including Color Wow Mini Cocktail at £10 for one of their travel sizes (50ml) hair cocktails. This one is fantastic on coloured hair as such a luxury treatment.
A cracker that really surprised me is the Time Bomb Christmas Cracker at £10, this contains two mini versions of the Time Bomb Hand to Hand Combat Cream. Time Bomb is such a luxury brand, anyone would love to get this for Christmas!
The last cracker in my gift guide is another hand cream one from Yardley London, we seriously love hand creams and miniature sizes are just so handy for on the go, and handbags. This one is less than half the price of the others at £4. As well as this Yardley London cracker, I also have been enjoying their Yardley Moisturising Fragrance Mist at £14.99. This is such a beautiful set for quick fragrances that last long and don’t stain clothes. There’s the English Rose, English Dahlia, and English Bluebell making this a perfect set for flower fans.
Know someone who loves painting their nails? Then you must get them one of the Leighton Denny Expert Nails Sets, they are so gorgeous! I have the a deep red from the Colour Soirée Collection (£16) on my nails right now and it’s a stunning shade for Christmas. I love the colour choices and that they even have the two of a kind set at £10 too. I do love sets at different price ranges. Speaking of hands, how adorable is this Merci Handy Disney Kit at £14.90!? I can’t wait to put these in every bag I own and use them out wherever I go. Hand gels are essential for day to day life and Disney versions are just so cute. I think I’ll be using Mini Mouse first!
Christmas mugs are essential, how can you enjoy a brew during December if the cup doesn’t have something festive on it!? I love these adorable mugs from MS Mugs, they’re £9.50 each and you can add so much more to them. Like a piece of shortbread for £1, making it a very cute and yummy gift. Or personalise the handle or inside of the mug for an extra £5. Perfect stocking fillers too, as are pins from Punky Pins. How amazing are these cat related pins? Obviously I have a kitten now but I still loved the little present one. I can’t wait to wear these out, I even bought a dress with cats on it recently so they’ll go perfectly together. These are priced at £7 and £8.
