Christmas Gift Ideas for £2 and Under

Wild Swimmer Santa Card

£2 doesn't really buy a lot these days, does it?  But it does buy a card - and cards, in my opinion, are a really special gift.  Who doesn't love receiving a hand-written card from a loved one? Why not choose a special card, and then hand-write a lovely message or type up a letter and put it inside?  Maybe even pop in a photo?  I love reading all my friends' news - and with all our busy lives, it's often hard to keep in touch as often as we'd like. I think Christmas cards are a definite winner (and easy to post too).

Wooden Bauble

Christmas baubles are super-popular at Christmas time and make a great, inexpensive gift to let someone know you're thinking about them. Every time your loved one sees it hanging on their Christmas tree they'll think of you which is a lovely thought.  And when the Christmas decorations come out again in years to come, you'll be in their thoughts again.

Puffin Coaster

Most people love a cup of tea or coffee so what about a coaster?  You can add a little message in a card, pop the coaster inside, and you've a great small gift which can be posted as a large letter.  Your loved one will be able to pop it on their coffee table or beside their desk and think of you every time they have a cuppa.

Tote Bag Porth

Our printed tote bags are super-popular and so much more stylish than supermarket plastic bags.  They're eco friendly and reusable and come in many different designs, they're great to fold up and keep in a bag for when it's shopping time, or to use as an everyday over the shoulder bag.  A great gift (and it won't break if you need to post it).


Our beautiful little mini cosmetic bags are always a winner too.  They're super-practical and not only do they look great, but they can be used in so many ways - for cosmetics, for chargers and earphones, for dog treats or poo bags...they are so versatile and can be given by themselves or with a few little bits and pieces inside if you wish.

Mugs, mugs and more mugs - our ceramic mugs make a great gift and are dishwasher proof too.  Loads of different designs means you're sure to find one for that special someone...and we've an offer on 2 mugs or more, saving you even more money. Our mugs are definitely a Christmas gift on a budget winner.

Scarves - and who doesn't love a scarf? Our scarf range is growing continuously and the colours are amazing.  They've proved to be so popular this year, a great way to pep up an outfit or keep the cold at bay. They're fabulously soft and most definitely make a great Christmas gift which doesn't break the bank.
