This year like we do every year, my form at school do secret Santa which if you have never heard of before is when you each pick a name out of a hat and you have a budget to buy a present fro the person. We picked our names out today because our school is super organised like that and somehow i manage to get the same person every year! I am not going to say who that person is just in case my class at school have randomly found my blog and are storking me..... which is very unlikely but still. Our budget is five to ten pounds. If you are stuck on what to buy your secret Santa hear are a few affordable present tips.
1) If you don't know what the person likes than I always go for body wash. You cant go wrong. i mean everyone has showers, or at least i hope they do, so everyone will use the present.
The body shop do tonnes of Christmas gift sets for under ten pounds and they are really good quality. The gift set above is only £6 and comes in a variety of scents.
Lush is also great for this kind of stuff although their gifts tend to be a little bit more pricey. But they do sell pre wrapped gift sets so if you are not much of a wrapper then.....yeh.
2) Vouchers!!! This another good buy if you don't know the person very well. If you want to get quite a small voucher, say £5 or £10, I would suggest a Starbucks or boots voucher.
3) now i am going to list a few thing that cost around 3 pounds. You good bu a few of them for one person as a little hamper or just one:
baby lips are really popular at the moment as the just came out in the UK. Boots do a 3 for 2 as well so look out for deals like this if you are buying for more than one friend.
Other chap sticks make great gift as well.
Barry m polishes are also good value seeing as they are cheap but really good quality.
These socks are from top shop whoa also do a deal if you buy more than one pair. Primark do tonnes of Christmas related socks and gloves too.
NOVELTY CHRISTMAS GIFTS (i dont know why i felt the need to write that in capitals) such as mugs and baubles make good gifts too. Check out the store tiger for this sorta stuff http://www.tigerstores.co.uk/tiger_home.html.
paper chase and accesorize also do jazzy decoration and what not.
Finaly...FOOD ( this time capital letter are needed) you cant go wrong with some tree shaped marsh mellows and candy canes.
I hope this blog post has been even a tiny bit useful and I will try and do some more Christmas related blogs in the future because it is the "most wonderful time of the year". ( wow that was cheesy)
