It’s the most wonderful time of the year, but for a lot of people, Christmas is also the most stressful and expensive time of year! So hopefully this list of 10 gift ideas under €10 will alleviate some of the pain!
The prices in this post are based on paying in Sterling. It works out cheaper that way (especially with ASOS).
1. A Mug
There’ll be plenty a cup of tea drank over the Christmas, and if there’s an avid tea / coffee drinker in your life, then a mug is a great little stocking filler.
My Pick: Love the Mug have something for everyone. Such cool, funny, sweet mugs. For your partner, BFF, mother, brother, grandmother; there is something for everyone!
Price: €10 and you can shop here.
2. A Hat
In my view, a hat is the trendiest accessory of them all and it’s minus 55 degrees outside (not actually but it’s FREEZING!).
My Pick: New Look, burgandy bobble hat. It comes in teal blue too.
Price: €9 from ASOS (pay in pound). You can buy it here.
3. A Hot Water Bottle
The experts say it is set to be a cold winder in Ireland! I couldn’t be without a hot water bottle, not only to keep the feet warm, but it’s the only thing that helps when I have back and/or stomach pain. I find them so comforting.
My Pick: Blush pink, fluffy hot water bottle. It also comes in grey and beige.
Price: €9 from Littlewoods. Buy it here.
I don’t know about you, but I just LOVE stationary. There’s nothing like starting a new notepad, agenda, diary or journal at the start of a new year.
My Pick: Kade marble notepad set.
Price: €9 from ASOS, shop here.
Both practical and stylish as well as needed in Ireland, pretty much all year round!
My Pick: Leather look Gloves.
Price: €8 from M and M Direct, shop here.
6. A Book
Being curled up in bed with a good book and a cup of tea is one of life’s great pleasures. I’ve previously written about those books that have helped me with anxiety. You can read all about those here.
My Pick: Me Before You by Jojo Moyes. This 8s the saddest book ever! So I’m not sure why I’m recommending it :s
Price: Currently on sale for €8.40 in Easons, shop here.
7. A T-Shirt
Women, men, children, dogs… everyone wears t-shirts right?
My Pick: New Look, Be Your Own Hero tee.
Price: €5.50 from ASOS; shop here.
One can never have too many pyjamas… NEVER! If you buy any one pyjamas, consider gifting them before Christmas Eve. New pyjamas on Christmas Eve is a must in my house.
My Pick: Any of the soft cotton pyjamas from Penneys. They have sets that are 100% cotton too!
Price: From €6 to €10
9. A Scarf
A scarf is not just for winter and can very quickly take an outfit from drab to chic.
My Pick: Oversized grey, check scarf,
Price: €9 from ASOS, shop here.
10. A Phone Case
A phone case can be as plain, subtle, bling or as personalised as you like.
My Pick: Marble and blush initialised case from Ebay. Come on, what kind of gift guide would this be without something personalised. Everyone loves personalisation, don’t they?
Price: €8 from Ebay, you can buy it here.
So there you have it. Just because the budget is small, that doesn’t mean you can’t buy some nice and thoughtful pressies.
