Christmas Gift Guide: £20 and Under

See comments

Another day, another gift guide! This is the one with all of my favourite gift sets that would make amazing gifts, though I feel this may just enable some pre or post Christmas spending here! 

Under £20 is still on somewhat of a budget, however I've tried to opt for quality high-end brands that feel like a bit of luxury, plus a few other products that I couldn't resist sharing with you.

*As we are so near Christmas I sadly can't guarantee all products will be in stock at the time of posting this*


Sanctuary Home Sweet Home Fragrance Gift Set 
£18.00 - Boots here or in-store 
First up a wonderful home fragrance set from Sanctuary. If you have ever smelt the luxury signature scent of Sanctuary products then you will know why I'm in love with all the products here. The clean and relaxing scent is carried through all the products and I literally can't get enough of it. Included in the set is a Room Mist 50ml, 2 Votive Candles and 2 Reed Diffusers 70ml. My favourite product from the set has to be the room spray as the scent is perfectly Sanctuary and smells so uplifting and fresh. Though I've also placed one of the reed diffusers in my living room and love how it gives a continuous light scent. I've yet to burn the candles but I'm sure I will be doing when I have a pamper evening. This really would make an ideal set for anyone that enjoys relaxing or home scents. Also how pretty is the packaging?!


Clarins All About Lips Set 
£19.50 - John Lewis here
Now this may have been a treat to myself but passed off as "for a gift guide - sneaky. So as you can imagine I love this little gift set. Now it is small but perfectly formed and great if you're on a budget but want to gift someone something more high-end. Included in the set there is two mini Instant Light Natural Lip Perfector in Rose Shimmer and Rosewood Shimmer, a mini Rouge Eclat Lipstick in Woodrose and a mini Gloss Prodige Lip Gloss in Candy, which is all presented in a lovely white Clarins makeup bag. This is all amazing value if you consider that the full sized versions of these products cost around £18 each. I also think smaller sized product can be great for in the handbag. If you know anyone that loves lip products or Clarins are a brand then this is such a lovely gift to give them.

Side note - I linked to John Lewis as it seems to be the only place that still has the set in stock online. But I do also love John Lewis as you can get items sent to store next day for free (saving on delivery costs) and also Waitrose stores - very handy! 


Benefit Sweet Tintations Gift Set
£19.50 - Boots in-store 
*Swoons* Ahhhh Benefit, how you've got it so right this year. Other than the Benefit Cheeky Sweet Spot gift set (which is over this gift guides budget) this would be my gift set of choice from Benefit, I mean just look at that packaging! Not only is there a good selection of products in the set, both new and old, but you are certainly getting value for money here as just the Tint Balms together would cost £29.00! Included in the gift set is a full size Benebalm and Lollibalm plus deluxe samples of both the Benetint and Lollitint. This set really is all about the tint balms if I'm honest as they really are wonderful sheer balms that feel great on the lips. A gift set that would make an amazing present for a teen or someone in their 20's, because who doesn't love Benefit!


Deborah Lippmann Limited Edition Glam Rock Set 
£17.00 - Selfridges/ Harvey Nichols in-store 
 Another bit of luxury from a high-end brand here. Deborah Lippmann is almost the creme  de la creme of nail polishes and with price tags to match, so this is quite a good value set. Included is two mini Deborah Lippmann nail polishes in 'Through The Fire' (red shimmer) and 'Ruby Red Slippers' (glitter) along with a very cute red glitter pouch to store them in. This is quite a small gift in size however the nail polish in both packaging and shade are divine and really do look like luxury items. A perfect gift for a high-end nail polish lover that know of the Deborah Lippmann brand. You can find the other variation - Dance Music set at Harvey Nichols here.

Green & Spring Indulging Travel Candle Set 
£18.00 - Bath & Unwind here
 For me candle sets make really nice presents. They give that little bit more than giving just one large candle and always come well presented in a box. I decided to opt for the Green & Spring candle set at I especially loved the packaging and the fact that the candles are 100% natural wax made from vegan ingredients. In the flesh these are actually even nicer with solid glass candle holders that are of a decent size, beautiful packaging and a wonderful scent. The scent of these candles really make it for me, hard to explain but the scent is truly fresh and almost comforting in a way. Wrapped up beautifully this would make a truly lovely gift.


REN Moroccan Rose Trio Set 
£19.00 - Look Fantastic here 
REN is another high end brand with products costing upwards of £17.00 so again this is a great value gift that feels more expensive than it is. The gift set includes three products from the Rose Otto range - a body wash 100ml, body lotion 100ml and a bath oil 10ml and comes in a nice box that shows this isn't a cheap set. Even though I'm not overly a fan of rose scents there is something incredibly moisturising about Rose Otto which makes it a product I use often. Infact after using the Rose Otto Body Wash I could actually feel a difference in the softness of my skin; something I don't get from any other body wash/shower gel. The product selection here is really nice and all products I feel most people would use, I especiallyy love the small glass bottle of bath oil, it adds that luxury touch to the set. All in all a lovely bodycare set that most would like. 


Sali Hughes Pretty Honest Book
£12.50 - Amazon here 
Finally I had to include the beauty book of the year and one that I'm sure is on a lot of people's Christmas list. Wrote by the true beauty expert that is Sali Hughes this is a comprehensive guide to all things beauty and literally leaves no stone unturned.
Points are covered on anything you can imagine being associated with beauty -  how to manage makeup counters, salon etiquette and what to expect, hair problem solving, wearing red lipstick and even how to pay and receive compliments... something I think most of us are bad at! The book is also beautifully formed and quite weigh-y making it feel and look a sizable gift. If you know anyone with even a slight or large interest in beauty/makeup and loves reading then this is definitely worth buying them. You may even find yourself peeking through it! 

This is the last of my 'For Her' gift guides - I hope they're been helpful! You can find my Under £5 Gift Guide here, Under £10 Gift Guide here and Never Ending Gift Guide here.
