GIFT IDEAS FOR £15 (ISH)

Being a student is difficult when it comes to Christmas. You desperately want to spoil your loved ones, but at the same time you have to limit yourself so you don't go overboard and spend all of your money. Obviously, there are a million things out there in the shops that you can pick up for a few pounds: a new nail polish, body spray or pair of slippers from Primark. However, I have been looking for gifts I can give that are cheap but work well as a gift. So, I wanted to find a couple of things that if I gave to people they would be really happy to receive and think it was a really nice gift as a whole.

Since this is primarily a beauty blog, of course, one out of the two gifts featured had to be beauty related. Boots have loads of amazing deals at the moment, including a massive range of Christmas gift ideas. One gift I particularly fell in love with was this Soap & Glory Time to Pink set. I liked this set as it was based around makeup and I thought the blush was beautiful! However, if you much prefer the moisturisers and body sprays from Soap & Glory Boots also stocked a huge bauble which contained all that lovely stuff inside. The makeup set comes with a beautiful, sheer, pink nail polish, a roll on perfume, a stunning blusher and a lip-gloss that smells like chocolate - amazing! Although is actually cost £16 I decided to include it as the next item I loved was only £12, so actually if you brought both of them it would cost £28 instead of £30 if they did both cost £15.

The second item is for those who aren't really into all the makeup, beauty and pampering side of things. Having said that, I would still be over the moon to receive this as a gift it's so, so cute! If you couldn't tell from the photos above, I am in fact talking about the mason baking jar. As mentioned, it cost £12 and I purchased it from Newlook, but I did have a look online I found some, so if you can't find it in your local Newlook store I'm sure you'll be able to find one from elsewhere with a quick Google search. In Newlook they had the option between a peanut butter mix and a Triple Chocolate Chip Cookie Mix which is the one I chose. I feel like you could buy this for anybody as you're basically handed everything on a plate: the ingredients and recipe. And of course, it goes without saying that the packaging is beautiful.

I hope you found this at least a little bit helpful. Also, I still haven't finished all of my Christmas shopping yet so if you have written a gift-idea post or just have some ideas in general I would love to know! Thank you!
