The Affordable Santa Edit

I saw something on Twitter this week that made me laugh. It said “why do all these Gift Idea Lists assume I have a budget of £400 per person?!” Gift giving doesn’t have to be expensive if you don’t want it to be. With a bit of thought and forward planning, you can pick up some really nice things without putting your bank account into intensive care. Here are a few suggestions from Boots that caught my eye and all are under £20!

I know a LOT of S&G fans and any one of them would love to find this under the tree on Christmas morning.

10195578I have this palette and the colours are perfect for creating a subtle look to a full on smokey eye. The palette comes with a double ended brush and a generously sized built-in mirror. Not so large that it won’t fit neatly into your travel bag if you are on the road this holiday season.

This scented jar candle from Sanctuary Spa comes in a pretty keep-it-for-storing-other-things box. Also available in Black Rose & Cassis scent. Who says holiday candles have to cost a bomb!

When it comes to coffee, my motto is “Death Before Decaff!”. The java lover on your list can wrap their hands around a chunky mug of Starbucks coffee filled with Caffe Verona or Breakfast Blend ground coffee.

You can’t have coffee without something to dunk in it and what better than shortbread biscuits. My hubby loves shortbread, so I think I will be picking up one of these for him.

This is just a very tiny selection of gift suggestions available this Christmas at Boots. Check in-store at your local Boots, or online for all the latest gift ideas.
