With the worst struggles of the last 18 months hopefully behind us, many people are planning to make Christmas 2021 extra special and we’re noticing that everyone is shopping a little earlier this year too, to help get prepared for a big festive season. If you are looking for stocking fillers or ethically sourced gift ideas that don’t cost the earth then you've come to the right place as we’ve prepared a special collection of christmas gifts under £20 for all the family. So, whoever you are buying for and whatever their tastes, we are sure to have something to light up their Christmas.
Without further ado, let’s look at our top picks of Christmas gifts under £20 for him and her so you can tick a few more presents off your list.
Gifts under £20 for her
For the environmentally conscious and lovers of all things green
Choosing ethically sourced, reusable and green products helps us all do our bit to support sustainability and the environment, but if you have recipients on your list for whom these values are a priority, selecting a well thought out gift really shows that you understand their concerns.
Our top picks include these Waves Bamboo Face Cleansing Pads which come in a cotton pouch and include 7 washable cleansing pads - one for each day of the week! A great alternative to throwaway cotton wool pads, these cleansing pads can be washed and reused and also feature a handy little pocket to place your fingers to make cleansing easier.
Encourage those with greenfingers to get out there and populate their gardens with new wildlife thanks to our range of Seedbom gifts. Choose from the fire, rainbow, butterfly or pollinator Seedbom, and your recipient can simply pull the pin and drop or throw in the area where they’d like to introduce some wildflowers.
For Friends fans
For lovers of the iconic comedy show Friends we have a 500 piece jigsaw puzzle or this Friends Best one Liners book, which is sure to be a big hit this Christmas and inspire your recipients to watch their favourite episodes over and over again!
For busy Mums
If you are buying for a mum then chances are she’ll love anything that helps her get the family organised, so we recommend this Olive Design Weekly Planner from Chickidee. An A4 pad of pure organisation, this planner features rip off sheets that can be easily stuck to the wall or fridge door to keep the family up to date with everyone’s latest plans.
Or perhaps try a little something to maintain her sanity and calm amongst all the chaos? Like this Cotswold Lavender Soothing Gel designed to ease aches and pains, when applied to temples and pulse points. Perfect for a rare 5 minutes of relaxation!
New Mums will appreciate these milestone cards with a difference. Designed, not to celebrate baby’s achievements but those of the heroic new Mum, who can feel a real sense of accomplishment when she finally gets to enjoy a cup of tea whilst it is still hot!
Give Mum some ‘me time’ and help her create a relaxing environment with a reed diffuser. We love this Relax Room Diffuser crafted from natural botanicals and fragrance oil, which lasts up to 6 months.
Show your support for girl power and inspire the ladies in your life with this She Believed She Could So She Did Journal. Packed full of inspirational quotes from powerful, successful women and with plenty of space to write down your own innermost thoughts, this is a wonderful gift to motivate and support women through their own journey.
Gifts under £20 for him
For puzzle lovers
Who doesn’t love a good jigsaw? If you’re looking for one to keep Dad entertained this Christmas we’ve got a number of great options including this Titanic First Accounts Puzzle, featuring the Penguin Random House book cover art by Artist Max Ellis.
Or for lovers of fossils, rocks and geology this colourful 1000-piece Geologic Time Puzzle is just the thing to pass a few relaxing hours over Christmas.
This Earth at Night Puzzle is another great gift idea for those who love geography, astronomy or anything from National Geographic. Featuring a view of the earth without sun and highlighting the populated lit up areas, it’s a great jigsaw puzzle and recommended for anyone aged 13 or over.
For gym goers
For hydration on the go try the Clima Bottle 330ml Sequoia Wood from 24 Bottles. This 18/8 food grade stainless steel bottle features a beautiful woodgrain finish and keeps your liquids cold for 24 hours or hot for 12. Free from BPA, phthalates and toxins, this stylish bottle is the perfect accompaniment for those who frequently travel or go to the gym to use in place of throwaway plastic bottles.
For aspiring chefs
If the man about your house is a budding chef then why not treat him to an accessory that compliments his cooking? This Three Fish Ice Grey Cork Trivet is made from sustainable ice grey cork harvested every nine years without felling trees, so it also ticks the environmentally friendly box. Heatproof and lightweight it’s the perfect addition to the dining table when your resident chef plates up his latest dish.
For sweet tooths
A few sweet treats are a must at Christmas so if you want to indulge your recipients, try this Coco Pzazz Christmas Pudding Fudge, a melt in the mouth fudge with that familiar Christmas pudding taste.
Or perhaps for chocoholics try this Coco Chocolatier Christmas Spice Milk Chocolate made with luxurious 40% milk chocolate and all those festive flavours we know and love at this time of year including cinnamon, nutmeg, cloves and allspice.
