Your Ultimate Under £10 Secret Santa Guide.
We don't mean to get too excited, but it's official- Christmas is around the corner. Whilst we LOVE the festive season, we know how stressful the task of choosing good presents for your loved ones can be every year. That mission is even more difficult when office/family Secret Santa is involved- how do you choose a great present on a low budget?
Whether it's buying for your younger cousin, or someone in the office that you don't know *that* well, we've created a Secret Santa guide that will give you plenty of options for anyone you need to buy a gift for this year. Get your stocking at the ready, it's Xmas shopping time...
The avid reader:
If you've got a book lover to buy for, this is the perfect secret santa gift for them. Books and Pieces have created a 'surprise date' with a book, AKA a a mystery book parcel, that comes with the cutest bookmark and sticker. This is especially great if you're not sure what genres of books they prefer- the mystery element is a key part of the gift!
The planet conscious shopper:
We all know plastic bags are a total no go, so having a cute reusable shopper is a must. This canvas tote bag is the perfect way to carry your shopping, plus the design great for anyone who is super passionate about the environment. Plus, it is made from 100% Fairtrade, organic cotton.
The conscious beauty loving colleague:
With winter comes many great things- but dry, flaky lips is not one of them. Luckily, Q & A have got everyone covered this year with their festive lip oil gift set. This wonder product is 100% vegan friendly and cruelty free, plus it comes in the most adorable festive packaging. Trust us, this will make the perfect gift for anyone who loves their skin care.
The vegan best friend:
Shopping for your vegan bestie doesn't have to mean skimping on the chocolate. Gnaw have created their own vegan-friendly hot chocolate set- just pop the choc 'shot' into hot, plant-based milk and it will create a deliciously creamy festive drink. It's the perfect pressie for those chilly winter nights.
The feminist icon:
If you don't know what to get for your socially conscious pal, we've got you covered. Punky Pins have created their own feminist gift set, complete with a gorgeous 'full time-feminist' pin badge and a copy of Scarlett Curtis's collection of writing, Feminists Don't Wear Pink and Other Lies. This is now on sale for just a tenner, so make sure to grab it for your secret Santa whilst you can!
The one with great hair:
Need to buy for someone who is totally hair obsessed? Make sure to get them one of our award-winning shampoo bars. With three mouth-watering scents- Acai Berry & Peach, Mint, Lime 7 Grapefruit and Cocoa & Cardamon- your gift receiver will certainly be able to smell their present before they open it.
The coffee lover:
If you're buying for your coffee-loving colleague, make sure it's a handy AF travel mug. We love this one from our Huski Home- cute AF, 100% biodegradable and makes for a great community present, especially now many of us are returning back to the office after a long stint of working from home.
Bath bombs are a great pressie for anyone who loves a good soak in the tub. We love this sleepy themed gift set from cruelty free champions, Lush, which contains two of their most popular bath bombs, Twilight and Sleepy Bear. Not only does this present smell amazing, it's also boxed up in gorgeous festive packaging, making it the cutest gift to give.
