Todays ‘gift guide’ is super low budget.. I actually considered breaking it down in to under £3 too as there were so many cute things I found on eBay for so little but I decided you’d probably be sick of these posts by now so I’d stick to the £5.
Standalone gift wise I really love the Anatomicals cracker and the Beauticology bath tub, they’re both small and inexpensive but self contained gifts so great for secret santa or those on a tight budget. The rest would make for great stocking fillers, I love the idea of putting together a little parcel of nail polish, lip gloss etc rather than buying a set because you’re thinking about the person when you’re choosing a colour for them.. it’s the extra thought that means the most when you have little to spend.
Ultimately we don’t have to spend a fortune it’s just ingrained in us that we should ‘treat’ our loved ones when in fact it should be more about the celebration than the gifts. As I get older and pretty much everything I want I buy for myself I care a lot less about the presents but I still love to give someone something I know they’ll like and that doesn’t mean a lot of money that just means a little more effort and thought!
How are you trying to save money this year?
