BLOGMAS DAY 5: Cute Gift Ideas On A Student Budget

Lifestyle

Christmas present shopping is something I love to do…but not something I love to do on a student budget. It’s so frustrating when you want to get your friends and family the best presents ever but money – or lack thereof – prevents you from doing so. That being said, there are still some super cute things you could get for a friend or ask for yourself. I’m going to list a few things below that I’ve come across that are really nice little gift ideas, all for under £20.00…

The Little Book of Self-Care – Urban Outfitters

I fricking LOVE the book section in Urban. They sell a really cute range of books from ones based on positivity, mindfulness and happiness through to drinking games or jokes. I especially love the books filled with inspiring quotes of how to pick yourself up when you’re feeling down or a little bit low. As cringe as it may be, I really love quotes and find that they help me keep a more positive mindset day-to-day. This book retails for £9.99 which is a pretty decent price for a super cute prezzie.

‘Lips and Tips’ Set – Ted Baker

I loooove a Christmas gift set, particularly anything released by Ted Baker around Christmas time. This year, this adorable nail varnish / lipstick set caught my eye. I think the pastel pink colour is super cute and will suit anyone so would be a great present regardless of who you’re buying for. I just feel like you can’t go wrong buying a present like this for someone – it retails for £8.50 which, again, is pretty good value.

Christmas Yankee Candle Set – Boots

What’s Christmas without a few candles? I came across this set of Yankees on Boots and think this is such a fab prezzie idea. For £8.66, you get six mini Christmas-scented candles which will last you throughout the entire festive season. I also think this is a great way to ‘sample’ some of the scents you may not have smelt before making the plunge and buying the bigger version of the candle. Another super cute present.

Soap and Glory Glow-Ball – Boots

Another Boots gift set, but really is there anything better at Christmas? I think, especially in terms of makeup brands, buying Christmas sets saves you so much money. This Soap and Glory Glow-Ball retails for £14.00 in-store and online which is amazing value considering the products that are inside. I think the majority of people appreciate some form of  a ‘smelly-bath-stuff’ set at Christmas and this one definitely looks like a good choice. Plus, Soap and Glory products always smell amaaaaazing.

So, those are all the little gift ideas I have for you today. Which is your favourite?

Lots of love,
