CHRISTMAS: Gift Guide for Him & Her £20 and Under 2019

CHRISTMAS: Gift Guide for Him & Her £20 and Under 2019
*Advertorial Content - Gifted Items
When it comes to shopping for family and friends it can be a challenge to think of gift ideas, especially for those who always ask for nothing. My husband is one of those people who consistently asks for nothing, but I'm sure if I actually didn't get him anything he'd feel slightly disappointed! Do you have anyone like that in your life? In this Gift Guide I've tried to include something for everyone and all of the presents are £20 and under, so purse-friendly too.

6 Brownies Postal Service from Twinnies Bake (£15) - Who wouldn't want to receive a box of handmade brownies for Christmas? Twinnies Bake offer this indulgent gift that can be tailored to the lucky recipients taste with their impressive range of seriously moreish brownie flavours, including Kinder Bueno, Galaxy Caramel, Tripe Chocolate, Chocolate Orange, Oreo, Mint, Maltesers and Smarties. All of the brownies are baked at home by Della and Maria, who are the lovely twins behind the company. Recently they launched their UK Postal Brownie Service, which allows anyone from across the United Kingdom to enjoy their delicious brownies. The brownies arrive beautifully packaged, so could be sent directly to a loved one who perhaps lives too far away to see over the festive period. You can choose the flavours you'd like to include and then make your order via their Facebook or Instagram pages. It's so important to support smaller businesses over Christmas and I can't recommend Twinnies Bake enough. 
Just Chill Bath Oil from Men's Society (£18) - Taking a bath at the end of a hard day is the perfect way to relax, unwind and 'just chill', making this Bath Oil from Men's Society a luxurious gift option for anyone who needs to de-stress. The blend of natural almond oil and sunflower seed, as well as extra naturally occurring Vitamin E, work together to create a nourishing bath oil that helps to replenish the skin and leave it glowing every time you have a bath. Men's Society also have a wide range of gift sets for men and women, many of which can be personalised.  
Robins appear when loved ones are near Plant Pot from So Close (£15) - Robins are often linked to loved ones who have sadly passed away, as well as being a festive bird. So Close have considered this when creating this beautiful plant pot; it would make a such a thoughtful gift for someone who has lost a loved one this Christmas. The delicately illustrated robin takes pride of place on this ceramic planter; a subtle yet special way to acknowledge loved ones during the festive period and beyond. There is also an option to add high quality Sutton seeds, from either lavender, sweetpea, strawberry or mint. 

La Petite Rose Portable USB Charger from Rex London (£9.95) - Running out of charge is something we've all probably faced at some point, but what if there was a solution to it never happening again? Rex London have a range of USB Chargers that are helpful in an array of situations, such as at festivals, holiday, camping etc. The compact portable charger is small enough to fit in a pocket or handbag (measuring only 9cm x 2.5cm) and offers approximately one full phone charger. It is also available in different designs, including Le Bicycle, World Map, Desert in Bloom and Flamingo Bay
Face Mask Glow Trio Gift Set from Sanctuary Spa (£15) - This gift set will help your skin to be hydrated and full of glow with the three mini face masks, all of which serve a difference purpose in your skincare routine. The Trio includes: 1 Minute Daily Glow Mask, 5 Minute Thermal Charcoal Detox Mask and Diamond Dust Refining Scrub Mask. Everything needed for your skin to have a complete pamper, encourage you to take some 'me time' and enjoy the outstanding quality of Sanctuary Spa products. 
Lowlander Botanical Beer Tasting Pack with Six Different Flavours (from 2.70 euros per bottle - £36.95 from amazon)  from Lowlander - Frederik started Lowlander after working in a Gin Distillery and falling in love with the use of botanicals in distilling. Taking a completely new approach Lowlander have created a unique range of botanically brewed beer that are full of flavour and character, including: Ginger & Kaffir Lime, Grapefruit Pale Ale, I.P.A brewed with Coriander & White Tea, Poorter brewed with Vanilla & Liquorice, Islander Summer Ale brewed with Curacao Orange & Dragonfruit, White Ale brewed with Curacao Orange, Elderflower & Camomile, Winter I.P.A brewed with Spruce Needles & Juniper Berries and Yuzu & Grapefruit. These are the perfect gift for anyone who likes to try new craft beers or enjoys unique flavour combinations. 
World's Best Knife Sharpener from AnySharp (from £9.99) - This is the present for the chef, cook, baker in your life; the AnySharp Knife Sharpener requires no skill to use, has many inbuilt safety features and comes in a wide array of colours to suit every kitchen. The hands-free safety comes from its unique PowerGrip suction cup base, which allows you to sharpen knives hands-free and safely. The pre-set 20 degree angle is the optimum for sharpening knives, allowing anyone to achieve professional results without any training required. Its compact design means it can also be stored away easily, so there's no excuse for blunt knives again!

The Award-Winning Selection from Booja-Booja (£9.99 from Holland & Barratt) - If you have not tried Booja-Booja seriously delicious dairy/gluten/soya-free chocolate truffles then you are missing out! You don't have to be a vegan or have a free-from diet to enjoy their rich chocolate truffles and this Selection Box is an indulgent way to discover the range of flavours they have to offer. You'll find Hazelnut Crunch, Rhubarb & Vanilla Fool, Stem Ginger, Around Midnight Espresso and my personal favourite, Almond Salted Caramel. Each truffle is coated in cocoa powder, which adds just the right bitterness to every bite. Across their whole product range Booja-Booja have won 125 awards and counting, so they really are the pioneers in dairy-free chocolate truffle making. 
The Grooming Guide Gift Set from Man's Stuff (£8.99) - Man's Stuff pride themselves in creating a no-nonsense range of essential toiletries and skincare designed for men. All of their products have minimalist packaging and a gentle scent that is focused on achieving results. The Grooming Guide Gift Set includes a Face Wash, Shower Gel, Post Shave Balm, Shave Cream and Shaving Brush. Everything needed to prepare the skin for a shave and then keep it moisturised afterwards.
Personalised Child's Drawing Phone Stand from The Little Picture Company (£15) - The way children capture a moment, their unique style of drawing and the thought that goes into a personalised gift makes this Child's Drawing Phone Stand a beautiful gift for anyone lucky this Christmas. All your child has to do is draw their picture on plain white paper, you scan it in or photograph it, send it to the lovely people at The Little Picture Company and they will work their magic to make a beautiful, completely unique phone stand. You can also add a message and who the present is from along the bottom of the phone stand. There are various ways for the lucky recipient to use their phone stand, from storing their phone on it overnight to using it as a stand when watching a video, playing a game or reading a name a few. 
Calming Camomile Gentle Cleanse Gift Set from The Body Shop (£18) - Camomile Cleansing Butter is one of my favourite cleansers for years now; I can't recommend it enough! The rich cleansing butter melts into a luxurious oil as you work it between your hands, removing make-up gently yet effectively. It removes waterproof make-up, is suitable for sensitive skin and leaves your skin feeling hydrated and incredibly soft. This Gift Set combines two of The Body Shop's most gentle make-up removers (the Camomile Gentle Eye Make Up Remover and the Camomile Sumptuous Cleansing Butter) with a super soft muslin cloth, therefore providing the lucky recipient with everything they need for clean, hydrated skin all year round.
Festive Body Butter Trio from The Body Shop (£15) - Body Butter has to be one of The Body Shop's most infamous products; I remember getting it as a gift when I was a teenager and it always smelling so good whatever the scent. This Christmas they have brought out this delightful trio of body butters in their festive scents: Juicy Pear, Warm Vanilla and Rich Plum. These are the ideal size for travelling with, taking on holiday or as an excuse to try out more than one scent. Personally, my favourite is Juicy Pear but which will yours be?
The Rocket Gift Set from The Body Shop (£15) - How fun is this gift packaging? I can imagine that children will love playing with the tin once all of the body care items inside have been used up. The Rocket Gift Set is filled with mini travel sizes of: Strawberry Shower Gel, Coconut Shower Cream, Strawberry Hand Cream, Coconut Hand Cream, Strawberry Bath Bomb and a Coconut Bath Bomb. It's the perfect combination of a fresh fruit scent of strawberry and deeper creamy scent of coconut. 
Pick & Mix Fudge Box from Whittals (£13.95 each or two for £25) - Beccy Whittal (the lovely lady who founded Whittals) started off by baking seriously impressive cakes, but after introducing her incredible fudge to her customers the demand for it kept rising. We are now all able to enjoy this melt-in-the-mouth luxurious fudge, as it can be ordered online or picked up at one of the many markets they attend. The Whittals Pick & Mix Fudge Box makes the perfect gift for anyone with a sweet tooth, as there are 22 flavours of fudge to choose from! Inside each box you can choose any four flavours, allowing you to personalise it to the lucky recepients favourite flavours. The flavours include: Baileys, banoffe, chocolate crunch, chocolate orange, cookie dough, English rose, fruit & nut, stem ginger, maple pecan, oreo, peanut butter, salted caramel, toffee swirl, vanilla and whiskey. They have also just added online their unique Brownie Bombs, which have a delicious filling (choose from: Raspberry Ganache, Salted Caramel Fudge, Baileys Ganache or All Butter Toffee) encased with a triple chocolate brownie that is then coated in the finest Belgian chocolate. 
I have also put together a range of other gift guides aimed at the whole family, including the adorable babies in your life, stocking fillers for children that are £10 and under, all important parents or children of all ages.
