Gifts under £10

Friday 22 July 2011
I can't deny that I find shopping for gifts a pain. It's the guessing, trying to figure out what the recipient will like without breaking the bank. In fact, I was discussing with fellow moms about thank you gifts for the teachers. I was stumped. Since there were so many teachers to buy for, we had to be budget sensibly. So I decided to set myself a challenge to find interesting gifts with a budget no more than £10. It helps that we're right towards the tail of the sale season when retailers are desperately slashing prices to get rid of their spring/summer stock.

1. The Bodyshop Jasmine & White Frangipani scented candle £10. Their natural candles with essential oils are paraffin free without the exorbitant price attached.

2. Liberty print Floral notebook £9. A pretty journal in a floral Liberty print.

3. Denby "Linen" teacup and saucer £4.48. Denby is synonymous with superior quality. At this price, you can buy a set of 2 and throw in a box of tea bags for £10.

4. Griffin Aircurve Accoustic Amplifier for iPhone £6.95. These amplifies your music but requires no charging, battery nor electricity.

5. Cath Kidston Provence Rose cosmetic bag £6. I have a similar toiletry bag and it's fantastic for travelling. Despite its small size, you can fit a lot in there and it's waterproof inside out.

6. Magnolia Bakery Cookbook £9.34. I've tried their recipes and was blown away. I'm sure those who are keen bakers will be delighted to get this cookbook.

7. Montezuma Organic Stack £9.49. These handmade organic chocolates come in a stack of 4 will surely satisfy any chocoholics.

8. Pierre Herme macarons starting from 4.50€.  No one in their right mind would ever turn down an offering from Pierre Herme.

9. O.P.I Mini Texas Collection £7.95. You'll have the prettiest lil toes in no time.

10. Russian Doll measuring cups £9.95. No it's a set of Matryoshkas. No, they're measuring cups. Hang on, they're both.


  1. I LURVE LURVE Pierre Herme (esp the salted caramel).

  2. These are too cute! Wish I could find them here!

  3. chicology, I try to avoid going into Pierre Herme whenever I get the chance to visit Selfridges. Too much temptation!

    lauraloo, let me know if you ever want goodies from the UK!

  4. these are so cute! i love the measuring cups the best, but candles are always great!

  5. I can't resist candles but the measuring cups are not only useful, they look so darn adorable
