Being Santa Baby on a £5 budget

 Well after the success of the recent post Being Santa Baby on a £20 budget I've decided to repeat it, but this time the budget is just £5. Now in the previous post there were some gift ideas that came in under £10 too, so if you haven't seen that one do pop over and have a look.

Everyone I speak to seems to need to cut back this year, but we still like giving gifts and let's face it, we do like receiving them too? But we don't want it to mean that the gift giver then can't eat for a month due to blowing all their pennies on presents. 

Amazon have this book priced at £4.29. The 1940's and 1960's homes are also available at the same price. You can select free postage.

The website notonthehighstreet.com is full of gift ideas. It's a site worth bookmarking for Christmas, birthdays, weddings etc etc.

Perfect for marking the pages with recipes you need to refer back to. Set of 10 page markers £3.80 plus 50p postage.

I love Lush, the products are fabulous to use and once you have tried one product you will be hooked.

Cancer Research UK have some lovely items in their online gift shop. UK only. Postage is from £3.95 per parcel for UK standard delivery or free if you spend over £49. I think that's pretty good and the actual cost of the items is very budget friendly too. I'm really impressed with the selection and price range. I will be doing some shopping from this site myself I think.

And finally the Cancer Research website has these 2 fun little stocking fillers for £1 and under! 

Don't forget that photo's make a nice gift too. An album that you've put together or a picture in a frame. It might not be the most expensive gift ever received but it will be unique and how could anyone think such a gift is anything other than utterly fabulous?

  1. Superb ideas! This is really useful...we all have friends and colleagues we like to get something for, and these are much nicer than the usual box of chocs or bottle of wine!

  2. Great idea for a post. Tiger is a great shop I'd recommend for stocking filler bits and surprisingly good value gifts - I've bought everything from a pack of fake moustaches (for the kids), to crockery to make a Chinese meal for two. It also has art and craft supplies, I got vintage style decoupage sheets (2 for £1) and they usually have 5metres of satin ribbon for a quid.

  3. You've found some wonderful items at very reasonable prices- I also like Tearfund- they have some nice items too!

  4. How gorgeous does that Lush soap look - yummy?

    Really useful post and will be doing some digging around on these sites for my Christmas presents.
