Hello and Welcome!
This is the third post in my Christmas series and I hope that you’re excited for it! I have a few more posts planned but since it is the beginning of December, I thought it was time to get this one out.
As you can tell from the title, today’s post will be all about Christmas gifts under £20. However, since I already created a ‘Beauty Stocking Fillers Under £10’ post, this one will be steering away from beauty products and will be detailing items that will be suitable for anyone (I think, anyway).
This post won’t contain too many gifts as I put a lot of thought what I thought would be suitable for anyone.
It happens that each of these products was sent to me for free at some point. Getting products sent to me means I can try more products and decide which products are truly worth it. These products/product types, I would have included whether I was sent them or not.
The prices in this post does not contain the shipping costs.
The Cheryl Co. Prints
Price: £4.00 for cards, £8.00 for A4 prints.
Art prints I think are fantastic gifts and so the prints from The Cheryl Co. would make the perfect Christmas gift.
Of course you could purchase some Christmas cards, like the ones above, to add a little something extra on top of your present. However, I think the stand out gift idea here would be the A4 prints that she sells.
As I mentioned in my dedicated review for The Cheryl Co., she does a variety of prints. This is why I think they would make a perfect gift that is suitable for anyone. She has prints that range from the perfume bottles above, to gin bottles, succulents, cities, and TV based prints. Alternatively, you can get custom portraits created if you think that might be to the taste of the person you’re gifting to.
I think the pricing of these prints is great and leaves you a little bit under the £20 to get a frame to really complete the gift!

Jasper&Jasper Candles and Wax Melts
Price: £5.00 for a bag of wax melts, £12.00 for tin candles, £20.00 for glass candles, £14.00 for wax burners.
Honestly I think if I ever don’t buy someone a candle for Christmas as a gift then I’m probably sick in some way. Candles make the perfect gifts for anyone in my opinion. There are so many different types, and scents, that there is going to be something for everyone.
My personal choice would be items from Jasper&Jasper. If you don’t have as much to spend, but know the person you’re gifting to has a wax burner, then the wax melts would 100% be a great choice. Or if you have slightly more to spend, then why not gift both a bag of wax melts and a wax burner?
Alternatively you can get a tin candle for under the £15 mark, or a glass candle for bang on £20.00.
I personally would give a candle to anyone – I gave a candle to my boyfriend for his birthday.
In conclusion: candles are great, give a candle.
If you would like to pick something up from Jasper&Jasper then be sure to explore their website (their scents are split between two collections, with fantastic choices in each). I know it can be scary to order products online that are based on scent but the products that they sell do smell exactly as described online!
Price: £12.50, or £11.25 with the code ‘multibendybeauty10’ (this is an affiliate code which means I would earn a small amount of commission if you use it).
I know I said that this wouldn’t be beauty based but I really think this product is for anyone and I’d definitely recommend it. I was going to buy this for my mum for Christmas but I’d gone so overboard on presents for her already (I have no self control) that I’m going to buy it for mother’s day instead.
This product is seriously amazing at moisturising and would be great for anyone of any gender or age. Additionally, because it’s made of natural ingredients (the only ingredients are: coconut oil, beeswax, olive oil, and chia seed oil) I believe it would be suitable for sensitive skin too. We all get dry skin at times and I think we could all do with one of these!
If you’d like to give this product as a gift then you can get it from the XO Balm website here.
Critically Endangered Socks
Price: £12.00 each
Now I know what you’re probably thinking ‘not socks’ and ‘twelve pounds?’ but let me explain to you why these are featured.
Firstly socks are a good present and if you don’t like getting socks then honestly who are you. I feel like as soon as you’re an adult you love socks because somehow every time you do a wash, you lose a sock. By the time Christmas rolls around you’ve got just one sock left (okay a little bit of an exaggeration but also when I moved back home I put many socks in the wash and did actually only end up with one).
These socks are special though. They’re called ‘Critically Endangered Socks’ because every purchase sees 20% go to an animal charity that corresponds to the sock. They sell 5 different pairs: The Borneo Orangutan, The Amur Leopard, The Maui Dolphin, The Sumatran Elephant, and The Hawksbill Turtle.
As someone who absolutely loves animals (apart from bugs, sorry), I think these socks are the most incredible idea. The way that we treat the environment and the animals in it is horrendous and we’re forcing some species to the edge of extinction. Most of us probably know this but aren’t sure what we can do to help and who knew all you had to die was buy a pair of socks?
I know you’re probably thinking ‘well Charlotte that’s great for you to say but you wrote at the beginning that you were sent products in this post for free so how is that helping?’ Well, yes I was sent the two in the picture to review, but I’ve also bought three pairs myself (and asked for another pair for Christmas) and I will continue purchasing from, and talking about, this brand because I think it’s hugely important.
The socks are made from bamboo and are probably the nicest and strongest feeling socks I’ve ever owned in my life. They each comes with a little white embroidered animal that corresponds to the sock you bought, which you can see in the third photo.
I find socks are deceptively expensive anyway so why not spend that little bit more and give more than just a pair of socks?
Okay so this brings us to the end of this post on Christmas Gifts under £20, I really hope that you enjoyed reading it! If you did then give this post a quick like and please leave a comment about what you thought of my selection of products. Finally, please follow my blog if you aren’t already, I’m working really hard to post 3 times a week leading up to Christmas and am 4 followers away from hitting my follower target for the year!
