"Good" Cheap? Gift Ideas


Distinguished Member
I'm starting to do my christmas shopping. I'm quite picky, so I like to put some thought into my gifts and not get any old crap.

What makes it more difficult is that we're limited to £10 per person this year, so the family's wallets can take a break. Like a secret santa the gifts will be anonymous, and £10 isn't a hard rule.

I found this little gem for just £14, useful for things like garlic chopping! Small enough to be a tool you leave out on the work surface.

My brother likes his coffee so I thought something like this

3 x 250ml -Coffee & Toppings Gift Box-Caramel, Cinnamon & Vanilla Syrups: Amazon.co.uk: Grocery

Anyone else found any gems? Nothing too gimmicky really.

My missus bought one of those mini choppers around six months ago. I've used it once to fine chop some oats for breadmaking & that's once more than she's used it. :D

There is a certain Lady I would like to buy a nice gift for you know something that shows she is special to me BUT I do not want to spend a fortune as chances are it would be a waste of money... any suggestions for something nice to stick under her tree (sensible answers please folks)


Hi Dan, you've hotlinked those images off Amazon :nono: :)

These are a great idea.

There's nothing quite like her FINALLY being ready 2 minutes before you're supposed to arrive 30 minutes drive away, only to decide the handbag doesn't go with the earrings. Cue another ten minutes of transferring mountains of crap! :facepalm:
