When it comes to buying Christmas presents, you might belong to one of two groups. The Head Scratchers or the Smug Ones. However, no matter whether you leave it all until Christmas Eve or have everything sorted before the tree is up – we can all do with a little inspiration.
A set of drawers, a tin of condensed milk (seriously) and an iron. Just asking about the office throws up the fact that most of us have been the recipients of some rather strange (if not wonderful) gifts.
But again only serves to highlight the fact that at this time of year, all gift-inspiration is welcome. Here are 10 gift ideas under £50 that you can’t go wrong with…
Mum’s can be tricky. What do they want? Chocolates, a good book and flowers are all fail-safe options, but she’ll probably get those anyway. We suggest our Astrid Pyjamas – crafted from soft-against-the-skin cotton and in a choice of stripes or silver stars (to add a little festive sparkle) this a present she’ll love for a long time to come.
This gift idea could be a little controversial. A wallet is something every man has and won’t want to replace, no matter how much it’s falling apart. However, the Holwell Wallet could change that. Crafted from hardwearing leather that will become more distinguished with every scratch and scrape, this will be a great gift. It also comes packaged in gift box.
Who doesn’t love cosy slippers? Throughout the colder months of the year, all feet need a place where they can hibernate. Super-soft, cosy and adorned with an animal that will only come alive when the left and right feet are paired together – even if she’s got a pair, they won’t be as good as these.
He’s a distinguished gent. You know it. He knows it. Everyone knows it. And if he’s of a certain age he’s probably had his fair share of flat caps. But has he one that’s this stylish? This traditional flat cap will top off his ensemble perfectly. Crafted in wool-tweed and lined with an exclusive hand-drawn print, it’s one of the most handsome hats we’ve ever designed.
We’ve shrunk the size of our best-loved women’s poncho to create this loveable little knit. Crafted from a super-soft wool mix and with buttons that will help create armholes, it’ll sit pretty over everything she already owns. If you want to spoil your niece rotten this is what to buy. And besides, she’ll receive enough, toys, books and gadgets as it is.
Turn off the lights! Close the curtains! Our new glow-in-the-dark pyjamas are here! Crafted from super soft cotton (that includes a little stretch for a lot of comfort) they are going to make sure he’s never been so enthusiastic about getting ready for bed. A great gift idea – he might actually be excited about receiving clothes for Christmas.
