Hey everyone,
It seems to be the time of year where everyone get's ready for the festive season and I'm so excited, I love this time of year, especially now I have Luka.
I have been pondering for ages on what to get my family and friends for Christmas, and this never happens! I'm usually the most prepared and always have so many idea's, but this year my mind has been blank and it's more so because I'm on a budget. After some serious online browsing trying to find the best gifts for 4 siblings, my parents and everyone else I have some idea's of what to get them and I think I can help you out too, so grab a coffee, put your feet up and I hope you enjoy the first instalment to my mini series 'A Guide To Christmas Gifts On A Budget 'For Her'

Firstly, don't be afraid to ask people what they would like or what they need, because instantly that will give you an idea, however, if your family are anything like mine, mainly my mum (sorry mum) then they usually just say 'nothing' or 'i don't know' .. helpful right?

Try to be organised, write lists and ideas down so that you don't forget anything when you're shopping around, I tend to remember the present but forget the wrapping paper which is a nightmare, especially when you leave everything last minute!

From low prices to the little more expensive, here are a few idea's to inspire your Christmas shopping list;


  • Costa Mug & Biscuits - For those who love Costa this is a perfect little gift, it comes in at £8 from Tesco and if that's too much you could make your own for less money!
  • If the person you're buying for isn't a fan of coffee then I have a substitute, it's a Hot Chocolate & Marshmallow mug including a little whisk only £3.99 from B&M you honestly can't beat that price.

  • Yankee Candles - now, I know you're all going to think 'they're so expensive' but think again, I have seen some amazing Yankee deals recently and you're not going to want to miss out! Yankee do a 'simply home' range which smell so beautiful, and the large jars are only £8.99 in B&Mother home retail and groceries stores usually sell them too so keep an eye out.
  • The other place I have seen an amazing deal is Groupon, they are selling 6 medium jars for £40, that works out an absolute bargain, there is limited availability so get in there quick, I believe the same deal can also be found on eBay.

  • I don't know many girls/ladies that don't love a good bath bomb and I came across this fabulous gift idea; Bomb Cosmetics Santa Says Relax Sack. You get 7 Bath Bombs for only £19.99. This is available at Studio who do some amazing products for discounted prices, I'm a little obsessed! Studio have a selection of different gift choices with various scents and sizes, perfect for those who love to pamper themselves.
  • Primark are absolutely killing it this season, I'm in love with 90% of the products, but I'm mainly going to focus on their pyjama range because it's 100% on point right now. The pyjamas range from £4-£16 per set, which is an absolute bargain and some of them are adorable, not to mention they have a unicorn and harry potter set! I love nothing more than new comfy pj's so what a great gift to get your sister or best friend! Primark Pyjama Range
  • I love the idea of giving the next idea gift to a Mum, it's fun, thoughtful and unique. Lots of Mum's love a glass of wine or Prosecco in the evening or at weekends so why not get them a 'Prosecco Garden Window Sill Planter & Growing Set' I may have chuckled quite a bit when seeing this, but they look really cool and fun. Ranging from £36.95 they are a little more on the expensive side, however, I always love spending a little more on my mum so why not! They are available from Not On The High Street and for those who don't drink alcohol, there are other cool options as well!

Whenever I think of my Grandparents house, it reminds me of home and I put that down to how warm and cosy I feel there, and how Nan's are always making a fuss over you making sure you've drank enough and you're not dying from starvation even when you're a full grown independent adult. I love getting my Nana little ornaments or sentimental thing's for her home so here's some of my favourite choices;.
  • Ceramic House Table Lamp - This is so cute that I actually want one myself, I think it would look great in a hallway or on a bedside table. You can get these from B&M for only £9.99!
  • Dream Cream from Lush, this Cream suits any skin type, however, I always recommend this to those who have tired, dry or sensitive skin. As you get older your skin needs more TLC and this product is a saviour! Prices start from £6.95
  • How about a personalised chopping board? These are so well made and you know that your Nan/Gran will use it a lot when she's cooking all the food she's going to make you eat! So why not get a personal message on it! You can get these from Getting Personal for just £19.99

I hope these idea's have helped give you inspiration on what to get the ladies that surround you, I will be doing a Part 2 to this most which will be 'The Ultimate Hamper -For Her' so stay tuned! Hope you've all had a lovely Sunday xo
