I am so getting ready for Christmas and I’m not even sorry! I used to wonder why it was all in the shops from September onwards, but for me, it really helps me to spread the cost and be prepared. And if I put the selection packs out of sight and out of mind, then they do last until the big day itself 😉
You may be doing small secret santa gift exchanges with friends, family, or colleagues, and it can be tricky to know what to get as the cost is usually pretty low. I am all for getting something that is actually going to be of value though, rather than just cheap tat that will get a quick laugh. So if you’re on my secret santa list, then you will be getting something that you will actually want to use, rather than regift a little later on 🙂
Here are some of the gift ideas I have been looking at for secret santa gifts this year. If like me you like to be prepared, then it is never too early. It would be great to hear what you think.
Pom Pom Earrings from George – £4.00 // Iridescent Glass Tea Cups from Red Candy – £12.50 // Seville Orange Scent Soy Candle from the Luxe Candle Company – £35.00 // Salted Caramel Hot Chocolate from Hotel Chocolat – £9.00
Is there anything that you are loving from here? A little on the girly side of things there should be something for all secret santa budgets, as some are super cheap, and some are a tiny bit more extravagant.
If you use the code AAUBLOG20 you can get 20% off any of the Coconut Lane Purchases (or anything else that you spot on the website).
One last thing that I think will make a great gift for Christmas or a secret santa is this stunning London Postcard Set from Montgomery Fest, priced at £12.50 for a pack of ten postcards (with two of each illustration). They are watercolour illustrations of some of the most famous London landmarks and they are so pretty, but simple and look really striking.
They are postcards, and do have space on the back to write on them or post them off if you want to. But I think they are almost too pretty to send off. With a cute frame, or even just a glass frame, they would look just adorable in the home. Lined up in threes or used in different rooms in the home could give a pop of colour that you need. They’re fab and are a little something different for a gift the year. What do you think?
Have you started your Christmas shopping yet? Do you usually take part in a secret santa at work? It would be great to hear what you think!
