Stocking Stuffers: 10 For Under A Tenner, Part 1!

By Emma | November 27 2012 | 11 Comments

Somewhat surprisingly, it proved simpler to find stocking stuffers for under a fiver than for under a tenner. But fret not, we’ve put in the legwork so you don’t have to, and found TEN great gifts for €10 or under! Here’s the first installment:

Stocking Stuffers


ONE Ok, so I probably could live without the Sally Hansen Maximum Growth Cuticle Pen, €5.95, – but whether I’d want to is a whole other question. I’ve stocked up so I can share the love this Christmas – bundle it up with a couple of the nail polishes from this post, and you’d still come in under budget.

TWO We’ve talked a bit about Pukka skincare on the site before but did you know they started out in tea? Here two of their most popular herbal blends are housed in a beautifully illustrated pink and gold ‘Love Tin’, €9.99. Love Tea is a relaxing blend of rose, lavender, elderflower, chamomile and marigold, while Three Mint tea combines peppermint, spearmint and field mint to refresh the palette and support digestion.

THREE Sleek’s i-Divine palettes are amazing: 12 high quality, pigmented  eyeshadow shades, designed to suit all skin tones. Au Naturel is a budget version of the Urban Decay Naked palette – it’s €9.99 from Irish online retailer Cloud 10 Beauty.

FOUR Ireland’s answer to Lush, Pixy is a homegrown natural cosmetics line and this Sensual Bath Oil, €9.95, makes for a great pampering gift this Christmas. With water lily, sweet almond oil and vitamin E, this softens skin and makes it smell amazing. Love the heart shaped bottle, too – it’s €9.95.

FIVE Indulge the Made In Chelsea fan in your life (there’s always one, whether we, ahem, they admit it or not) with a jar of sweets from Jamie Laing’s Candy Kittens brand – if you can get yourself down to Harvey Nichols Dundrum this Thursday, you can even get ‘em signed by the McVitie’s heir himself. From €7.95 a jar.

Got any more great gift ideas for under a tenner? Share ‘em in the comments – and keep your eye out for the second installment!

    Korres Lip Butters!!! Cannot live without them. Loving this series. With a 12 year old miss in the house, these are all great ideas for cheap experimentation!!

  • LoCo says:

    I’d happily receive all of these, great list.
    I must invest in a sleek palette.

    I used to think Jamie was so funny & lovely in MIC but what he did to lovely Binky, don’t like him anymore. I don’t really watch it though I swear ;) !!!

    fififinx- I’m totally addicted to Korres Lip Butters

  • Korres lip butters are the best! xo

  • Various lip butters and hand creams always go down a treat.
    Homemade mini-brownies too :)

    That bottle of bath oil looks gorgeous.

  • Chris says:

    I really like the Sleek palettes. They’re a little hard to get here in the States, so I always squeal with joy when I get my hands on one.

    I think colored eyeliner is also a nice gift. A lot of people I know wear brown or black, and never think to try blue, green or purple.

    Inwardly going OMG like a fangirl at Jamie being in Dundrum…I’m so ashamed…

  • Shanna says:

    I love the Sleek palettes, they’re fab!

    For under a tenner I like Aussie 3-Minute Miracle Conditioner, EOS Lip Spheres, China Glaze nail polish, False Lashes, Eyelure Lash Glue (the best according to the lash-loving sister), fluffy Puggs (Penney’s Uggs) and giant coffee mugs! Butlers also do a gorge hot chocolate box for around 3-4 euro, it’s lush, picked up a couple to add in with the girls boxes this year.

    Emma, just wondering did you order the Pukka set online or find in town? I rambled into Nourish today hoping to pick it up, but alas they don’t have it in stock! Was wondering where I might get my mits on it…
