Last Minute Gifts Under £20

Still swanning around like a headless chicken trying to buy last minute pressies? Urrrrm, me too.

I love buying quirky little gifts and things that are a little bit different but I always struggle to find places that sell anything half decent. Another thing I’m lacking is money – a lot of gift guides I’ve seen are like ‘buy this watch for your boyfriend for £500’ or ‘your mum will love this bracelet worth £6,000’. I’m afraid I’m one of those poor ex-students who can’t afford to splash out on huge gifts but always love to give my family & friends some small, well thought out presents.

I’m addicted to all homeware and gift pages, especially at ASOS and Urban Outfitters – have a little look at my gift guide below if you still want a little bit of inspiration without breaking the bank. Everything is under £20!

I hope that has given you some last minute inspo – a couple of these bits I’ve actually bought after discovering them online…

Let me know what your fave items are and if you snap up any!

‘Til next time,

    I bought the Toyshop lip bullets for my secret santa, I think they are really good value for money x

      Me too I want the mug so bad! And yeah I agree, usually I think Topshop stuff will be really expensive but I was scrolling through the website and the prices were decent!
