We’re moving up the food chain today but still keeping it nice and budget friendly, with this fab little round-up of gifts for under twenty quid.
ONE Is there someone on your list that’s obsessed with sequins and sparkle? This Sparkler kit will knock their socks off and let them match eyes and nails to their favourite sequined jacket or glittery shoes. Brilliant value for money from the Frontcover site, for £16 you get 2 pots of loose glitter, a pot of gold sequins, a sparkly iridescent glitter gel, a double-ended applicator (which can be used as a liner brush) and three stunning nail colours: a gorgeous black with purple and green glitter, a pretty magenta with pink and purple glitter and a rich metallic bronze. It’s twinkletastic! (See more Frontcover here.)
TWO I first spotted these chic Chanel inspired quilted cosmetic bags over on British Beauty Blogger where Jane showcased the envelope clutch version. This one is a bit roomier but I would happily unwrap either on Christmas morning – they’re €13 each from M&S, and they’re on my Santy list.
THREE With their dinky little products and bottles, we’re big fans of travel sets round these parts and Burts Bees offer up some of the best. Even if you don’t plan on doing too much travelling, they’re a great introduction to a brand and a fab way to try a selection of products before you invest in the full size version. This Travel Basics Set is €19.95 and comes with hand cream, cuticle cream, two lip balms and a mini cosmetic case. Now what woman wouldn’t be thrilled skinny to open up that little lot?
FOUR Since finally caving and buying an iPad earlier this year I have been on the hunt for a fabulous case. I’ve found plenty, but they’ve been insanely spendy. So my eyes lit up when I spotted this little lovely in Oasis. With its metallic leopard print design it looks a million bucks – but costs just €17. This is another item on my personal list!
FIVE Thought you had to spend a fortune to pick up something from Net-A-Porter? Think again! These adorable animal print ear buds from Diane Von Furstenberg feature a reissued archive print and are perfect for lovers of fashion and music alike. A snip at €20 (Marc Jacobs’ go for twice that price), they also come with cute little red lovehearts, instead.
