The festive season is upon us, and with the hustle and bustle of daily life, it’s not uncommon to find ourselves scrambling for last-minute Christmas gifts. The good news is that you don’t need to break the bank to spread holiday cheer. Here’s a pick of gifts that won’t cost you more than a tenner.
Channel your inner chef and whip up some delicious homemade treats. Whether it’s cookies, fudge, or granola, present them in a festive container or jar for an extra touch of holiday spirit. We love these gooey coconut and dried fruit choccies that make a sweet treat when gifted in a festive box.
Grab a pack of these affordable scented candles. These little bundles of joy are perfect for creating a cosy ambience during the winter months. Pick scents that remind you of the recipient’s favourite season or memory for an added personal touch. We love this John Lewis Spiced Clementine & Pomegranate scented candle for a fiver, for a festive fragrance.
Herb Garden Starter Kit
For the green thumbs on your list, consider a small herb garden starter kit. These can often be found at gardening supply stores or online – try the Grow Your Own Coriander Kit from Not On The High Street for only £5.95. It’s a gift that keeps on giving, providing fresh herbs for cooking and a touch of nature indoors.
Christmas gifts that don’t cost a penny…
With a bit of creativity, you can even find the perfect last-minute gift that only takes a little time and thoughtfulness to make your recipient smile.
Create a curated playlist of holiday tunes that captures the spirit of the season. Share it digitally or burn it onto a CD for a nostalgic touch. It’s a heartfelt gift that offers the joy of music throughout the holidays.
Transform simple, plain ornaments into cherished keepsakes by adding a personal touch. Get creative with paint, glitter, or markers to personalise each one for your loved ones. It’s a thoughtful gesture that won’t burn a hole in your pocket.
