With loving a bargain but also hating tat I'm always on the lookout for items that are small in price but look the opposite! This is even more true come Christmas time as there's nothing more satisfying for me than finding budget gifts that I know people will still love.
You don't get much cheaper than £5.00 especially for gift sets so I thought I'd share with you my favourite picks from eBay that are perfect for snapping up now for Christmas. Psssst - All listings in this post are from UK sellers plus free P&P!
Models Own Nail Polishes Set of 10
Okay, so I had to start with my best bargain find as it's just an incredible saving and would make an amazing gift or even split up into two gifts. Normally a single Models Own nail polish would cost £5.00 but here that's the price for all ten nail polishes which is a huge saving of £45! So many lovely nail polish shades here for various collections. I've also purchased a few Essie nail polishes from this seller and they come in no time at all and are definitely genuine products.
Patisserie De Bain Creme Patisserie Gift Set
Patisserie De Bain always offer lovely gift sets so I was pleased to come across this on eBay. For only £4.49 you receive a 3 piece set that includes a 175ml shower gel, 175ml body souffle and a shower puff in their new sweet vanilla scent; creme patisserie. This looks really lovely and would normally retail for £10.
Baylis & Harding Solider Eton Mess Hand Wash 500ml
Not a gift set but something I spotted and thought I'd include for the super cheap price. This festive themed hand wash is a mega 500ml in size and perfect to include as a gift or to treat yourself to, especially if you plan to have guests over the Christmas period.
Essie Winter Collection Mini Set x 2
From the same seller as the Models Own set I also found another amazing nail polish deal. For only £4.99 you receive two festive Essie mini sets which would normally retail for £12.99 each. Each set includes 3 Essie minis in gorgeous festive shades. Basically two gifts here for under £2.50 each... or a sneaky gift to yourself and one for someone else!
Acrylic Makeup Organiser Tower
I totally love acrylic makeup storage and have actually have the larger version of this and love it. This is by far the cheapest makeup storage set I've seen on eBay and I know it would make a perfect gift for any makeup lover or teen. I'm actually very tempted to get this for myself now.
Burt's Bees Beeswax Gift Set
A cute little gift here from Burt's Bees that is very reasonably priced, containing a full size lip balm and a mini hand salve. This is fab if you know a Burt's Bees fan or as a little gift for a friend along with some chocolates.
St Tropez Tan Optimiser Tan Detox Set
Last of my gift set finds I found another bargain gift set from St Tropez, which is actually pretty surprising knowing the price of their products. The set includes a 50ml bath oil, gentle exfoliating cloth, a clear zip-lock pouch plus 5 free pairs of St Tropez latex gloves for tanning with.. all for only £3.99 with free p&p! This would make a great gift alongside a full size St Tropez product.
So many amazing yet cheap gifts here! Hope you've found a few early Christmas presents!
